Printing Industries Association President, Jim Cunningham stated how impressed this year’s judges were with the overall quality of all of the entries. “Paul and Glenn are experienced judges and printers whose combined expertise spans to more than 75 years of print. Yet, even they were impressed with our members’ incredible work. It’s easy in today’s fast paced world to get just the job done, but Multi-Craft continues 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.
