It’s not completely about the Benjamins.

The Premier Print Awards, a global international competition dedicated to the graphics arts trade, has released the results of its 2011 competition featuring some 2,700 entrants.

Organized by trade association Printing Industries of America with sponsorship from the Eastman Kodak Company, Heidelberg USA, and Xerox Corporation, the Premier Print Awards will hand out 103 Best of Category (aka the Benny) award winners, Awards of Recognition, and Certificates of Merit at the GRAPH EXPO tradeshow on September 11, 2011.

Recipients of the Benny join the ranks of other prestigious printers in the industry.

Jim Mayes, president of ColorCraft of Virginia and a Benny recipient says, “We’re glad to win a Benny, our first in five years. We’ve been trying for some time and are very thankful and pleased to have earned one at the 2011 Premier Print Awards. Morale is high and it means so much to everyone that works here.”

John Eastty, president and chief executive officer of Aus-Tex Printing and Mailing offers, “Having won recognition almost every year since 1996, it is truly an honor to be awarded a Benny in 2011 as one of the best printers in the world! Our employees as well as our customers will cherish and savor this award for many years to come.”
