Gold Ink Awards Entry: Hawaiian Airlines' Hana Hou! Magazine Stands Out with Color
PHILADELPHIA—May 22, 2015—Lithographix, in Hawthorne, California, submitted the October/November 2014 edition of Hana Hou! in the Specialty Magazines, Web, category of the Gold Ink Awards. The issue pays a special tribute to Hawaiian Airlines' 85th year in business, and honors one of its early pioneers, Jimmy Hogg, who joined the airlines in 1930, and moved up the ranks to co-pilot in 1936.
What makes this magazine stand out are its vibrant colors and intriguing photography on the cover. The October/November 2014 edition of Hana Hou! was printed on a six-color, 38" Mistubishi gapless heatset full-web press, for a press run of 135,000. The paper used was TopKote 80# Cover and 50# Web Gloss Book. The publication was printed four-color process with a UV coated cover, and was perfect bound with PUR glue.
"When Hana Hou! partnered with Lithographix seven years ago, we helped them become one of the premier, in-flight printed publications in the world," says Brian Campbell, senior account executive. "Lithographix helped launch Hana Hou's complete in-house color and prep department. Hana Hou has always had the highest expectations for excellence in editorial content, photography, design and printing. This issue, like all of their publications, reflects these core values, and we're glad to be part of their team."
