2018 Graphic Excellence Awards SOLD OUT AUDIENCE

Houston, TX-Oh what a night!  The 32nd Annual, Printing Industries of the Gulf Coast Graphic Excellence Awards Gala played to a SOLD OUT audience.  This year's theme, "POWER - Print Offers Winning & Effective Returns", was held at the beautiful Ballroom at Bayou Place.  The 15,000 square feet facility was transformed into a Super Hero showcase of the most exciting work being created and printed in the Gulf Coast region.  Over 260 entries were submitted this year and competition for the coveted "Best of Show" award (the BEST of the BEST) was fierce.

Sponsors for the event included Bosworth Papers, Canon Solutions America, Clampitt Paper, CRON-ECRM, Fuji, Heidelberg, Kodak, LSS Digital, MBM, Mohawk, Olmsted-Kirk Fine Paper, Prisco, Planning Solutions, Premier IMS, Sprint Bindery, Standard Finishing Systems, Tecnau, The Steward Organization, Top Level Ink, Veritiv, and Xerox.

The Grand Champion of the event was Discpro Printing & Graphics and Vela Custom Book Makers for their show-stopping piece called Fisher Island Portfolio. 

Speedy Printing - Katy Freeway wowed with their Butterflies Festival entry that took home the Judges choice Award.  This is an honor the judges bestow based on a piece that represents an original design and technically challenging to produce.  It may not have been a Best of Category piece, but it is one the judges recognize for the uniqueness.  Best use of Paper went to Mittera Houston for The Haskkason Book and Alliances' Nobelus Sleeking piece won the Best Use of Ink.

Be on the lookout for updates to our website with a complete listing of every winner from the big show last night, and thank you to our sponsors for supporting such a fun and exciting evening.  Congratulations to everyone that participated.
