Thoughts From a Premier Print Award Winner
Every year we have the Premier Print Awards and this year's Silver Award Winner was C.J. Graphics. We asked Jay Mandarino, President and Founder C.J. Group of Companies, Toronto, Canada, to share some of this thoughts with us.
It was a great honour and privilege to receive the Silver Award and three Bennies at the recent Premier Print Awards hosted by the Printing Industries of America. To be acknowledged by one’s peers is at once gratifying and humbling.
My companies, The C.J. Group of Companies, located in Toronto, Canada and its experienced staff have, repeatedly, been assisted by the Printing Industries of America's dedicated team of scientists and technologists. My staff and I are constantly augmenting the technological advancements of the printing industry both in Canada and worldwide. Many of the thousands of awards that C.J. Graphics has won have been due to the development of proprietary systems, equipment, processes and computer programs to accomplish that which has never been attempted before. Our state-of-the-art prepress, press, bindery and digital divisions enjoy challenges that very often produce opportunities for both our customers and ourselves.
We thrive on unusual requests and impossible deadlines. We are also dedicated to the promotion of innovative business practices that minimize our impact on our environment. We are committed to sustainability and we are working hard to become a resource and advocate for a better world. I have been involved in many aspects of the printing industry all my life and have been a dedicated supporter of the Printing Industries of America and its many accomplishments therefore, receiving these Awards was both moving and deeply appreciated. Thank you.
