Company gains worldwide recognition as one of the best in specialty imaging
Richmond BC, November 3, 2011 – Imprint Plus is extremely pleased to be the recipient of two of the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association’s (SGIA) Golden Image award. During the 2011 SGIA Expo in New Orleans, Imprint Plus was the recipient of the Andre Schellenberg Award, a best-in-category distinction, for a sublimated, heat transferred name badge created specifically for the Dallas Zoo (Category 36). The company was also awarded the Honorable Mention Award for a 10 color IDS Canada logo in the Metal Signs/Products category.
“Our team of designers is truly excellent,” said Imprint Plus CEO Marla Kott. “Our work was compared to all the top companies – and we were highly commended for our effort. I am extremely proud of all our employees” Kott added.
353 entries in 50 categories were submitted by more than 66 Companies and were evaluated by the judges during the 2011 SGIA Expo (New Orleans, October 19–21). Due in large part to the impressive quality of entries, this year’s event was one of the most challenging in recent history.
“The judges had a very difficult time this year, not because of the sheer volume of entries, but because of the overall quality of the work. Judges in virtually every category told me the entries were so good that choosing winners was a real challenge,” said Johnny Shell, SGIA’s Vice President of Technical Services.
Shell added that the Golden Image competition is judged on the technical accomplishments of each entry, excluding aesthetic issues from the evaluation and scoring process. Prints are judged on the level of difficulty and quality of execution.
A recap of the 2011 SGIA Expo — including the complete list of Golden Image winners — is available online at www.SGIA.org.
