Four categories were presented including: Large Business, Small Business, Nonprofit and Collegiate. Newport-based Multi-Craft was elected the winner of the Small Business Marketer of the Year for their company rebranding campaign.

“Our team has spent the last five years transitioning from providing the high quality printing and mailing services that we have offered since 1955, to diversifying our brand and company to be able to execute every part of our client’s marketing plans over many channels,” stated Multi-Craft president, Deborah Simpson.

Multi-Craft has been a family-owned and operated commercial printer in Cincinnati for more than 55 years. With the internet boom and rapid technology developments seen over the last several years, the company identified the opportunity to expand their service offerings to meet the needs of their clients and embarked on a rebranding campaign. Their submission for Small Business Marketer of the Year included a new brand, website, custom publication, social media and seminar series, as a few of the major components of their new brand.

The company’s new focus on supporting the execution of fully integrated campaigns reflects a greater industry trend and allows their clients greater flexibility in their strategic partnership.
