Those of you who have known House of Print for more than a few years will know that we have won various awards for the quality and standard of our printing. The company regularly entered the Sappi Printer of the Year competition. Unfortunately, Sappi has decided to discontinue that competition.
However, we note with some excitement that there will be a new printing competition launched this year. This competition will allow us to enter more of our work because it will not be restricted to litho printing, but will include more printing disciplines. The competition, to be known as The GAPP Awards is being run by one of the industry magazines, The GAPP.
While the specifics of the competition have not been announced as yet, it seems that this competition will be more inclusive, allowing printers in all sectors of printing to compete. There will also not be any restriction on the type of substrate which can be entered.
This is good news for the printing industry because competition is one way of ensuring that we continually strive to achieve better quality work. It is important to push the envelope and hopefully this competition will allow us to prove ourselves to the industry as a whole. It also means that we can once again show you – our clients – why you chose us to handle your printing work.
