LOVELAND, CO -- Vision Graphics Inc., a leading provider of integrated marketing communications and print solutions, received top honors at the recent Printing Industries of America Mountain States (PIAMS) Best in the West Print Showdown Gala in Denver, CO. The Best in the West Print Awards recognize companies in the western region who demonstrate outstanding craftsmanship in the production of print communications.
“It is an honor to be recognized by Printing Industries of America ~ Mountain States, “said Mark Steputis, Vision Graphics Inc. president and chief executive officer. “We take tremendous pride in our work, from the paper it is printed on to finishing and bindery - it is important that we produce a product that our clients are proud to showcase. To be recognized not only by our clients, who return year after year, but by our peers as well is a double honor.”
Vision Graphics Inc. received six awards including the 2010 Gold Award for the Magpul Eleven catalog and the Sierra Designs Apparel brochure. The entries were judged based on the impact of the piece, degree of difficulty and technical excellence. The judges, a group of professionals from both the printing and creative sides of the printing industry, were from Portland, OR and followed criteria that included color, composition, substrates, technical difficulty and overall excellence of the finished piece. Award winning entries are automatically entered into the Premier Print Awards national competition.
“There is a misconception that you must go to the bigger cities to produce high quality print,” stated Sandi Neuman, Printing Industries of Colorado president. “The western region has some of the top printers in the nation and Vision Graphics Inc. certainly sets the printing bar for our industry, the work they produce continues to move that bar higher.”
