PRINT 13 Must See ’Ems Winners Revealed
RESTON, VA—The PRINT 13 Must See ’Ems winners have been announced. The 49 winning technologies were selected from a record number of entries submitted by a record number of individual companies.
For the competition, organizers and judges responded to the changing technology landscape with the creation of three new categories in which to judge entries and made a name change to better define another category. Three “Finishing” categories have been combined into one “Postpress and In-Line Finishing” category. Two new categories have been split off from the “Prepress” category. They are “Color Management and Quality Control” and “Variable, Transactional and Multi-Channel.” Finally, the name of the “Future Print” category has been updated to “The Future of Print: Technology Demonstrations.”
“Best of Category” winners for each of the 11 categories will be revealed during the pre-show Executive Outlook conference, which takes place Saturday, Sept. 7, prior to the opening of PRINT 13 and the co-located CPP EXPO.
