Sappi North America, a leading producer and supplier of diversified paper and packaging products, has today opened the 2016 North American Printer of the Year Awards call for entries. Winners will be recognized for print excellence and innovation across ten categories for work produced primarily on Sappi paper. Since its inception in 1999, the Sappi Printer of the Year Awards program has been regarded as the printing industry’s most respected accolade.
“The art of print permeates our day-to-day lives more than the majority of us even realize. Since day one, Sappi has worked with some of the best printers in the world and remains in awe of their commitment to precision and creativity,” said Patti Groh, director of marketing communications, Sappi North America. “We always look forward to recognizing the incredible work they do, and as we head into our 19th year of these awards, we are expecting to receive the most creative and innovative entries thus far.”
To enter, printers can submit any work printed predominantly on Sappi paper in the U.S. or Canada between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2015 by February 26, 2016. For each entry, six copies of the printed piece must be submitted by mail, along with one copy of the entry form. Each printer may submit an unlimited number of entries, but each entry must be accompanied by an individual form.
