Multi-Craft awarded at state level on 11 entries

Cincinnati, OH – January 2, 2013 – Multi-Craft is proud to announce it was recently awarded 11 Print Excellence Awards from the Printing Industries of Ohio and N. Kentucky (PIANKO).

Printing Industries Association President, Jim Cunningham stated how impressed this year’s judges were with the overall quality of all of the entries. “Ken, Paul and Glenn are all three experienced judges and printers whose combined expertise spans more than 100 years of print. Yet, even they were impressed with our members’ incredible work. It’s easy in today’s fast-paced world to just get the job done, but our Association members continue to demonstrate the pride and dedication to their craft that has made Ohio and Northern Kentucky printers some of the best in the world!”

Each year, PIANKO holds its Print Excellence Awards Competition to reward Ohio and Northern Kentucky printers that demonstrate excellence in 34 categories. This year member companies submitted over 458 printed pieces and three out-of-state expert judges ranked them in a regional competition. The 2012 judges were Ken Eberhart, The Merrick Printing Company; Paul Schmitz; Schmitz Printing Inc.; and Glenn Petry.

Each of the gold award winners in the regional competition are entered in an association-wide competition for Best Category and Best of Show prizes that will be awarded in August 2013 at the Grand Ceremony, being held in Columbus, Ohio.
