Time to Submit Your Gold Ink Entries!February 5, 2013 By Julie Greenbaum
Each year at Printing Impressions, we receive more than a thousand entries from printers who are looking to be recognized by their customers, prospects and industry peers, let alone the pride that results among their own employees.
Perusing our first entry ushers me away from the grey skies and barren winter landscape of Philadelphia to a tropical paradise. I find myself immersed into the floral air, tranquil waters and Hula dancers welcoming me to their ancient landscape. But, the waterfalls I see while riding horseback in the Waipio Valley quickly begin to fade as the snow falls and sticks to the windows of my office, snapping me out of my daydream.
Take a look at this entry from Hana Hou! The Magazine of Hawaiian Airlines, which was entered into the Specialty Magazines, Web category.
The lush, tropical images throughout each of the magazines (shown with Gold Ink entry tag) were beautifully reproduced using a 38˝-wide Mitsubishi web offset press and printed on Sappi 50-lb. gloss paper, 78-lb. cover.
This is a perfect example of the colorful, creative craftsmanship that we look for in each of the Gold Ink submissions.
