Copresco has won four major Graphics Excellence Awards from the Great Lakes Graphics Association (GLGA).
“The awards program is the largest regional print competition in the United States,” says GLGA Director Bill Gibson. “The winning entries acknowledge exceptional quality and craftsmanship in design, creation and full color printing.”
Copresco was honored with Best of Division awards for a financial prospectus and a product brochure. Two Awards of Excellence were garnered for digital book printing. Certificates of Merit Awards were given for a client cookbook and the firm’s Overnight Lite newsletter.
“These awards demonstrate the exceptional quality that Copresco brings to digital printing,” says Copresco President Steve Johnson.
One of the firm’s winning pieces was a full-color, full-bleed 7”×10” booklet for an international investment technology organization. “Just a few years ago, offset printing would have been the only choice for producing such a prestigious financial piece with a quantity of only 50. It was perfect for our short-run services,” Johnson said.
“At 20 pages, plus cover, the booklet would typically be saddle stitched, but the client wanted the prominence of perfect binding, realizing that Copresco was one of the few printers that could accurately and economically bind such a small quantity and small page count,” he concluded.
“Our Overnight Lite newsletter has won many awards for editorial excellence, but we’re delighted that it has now also been recognized for its beautiful quality. You can read Lite’s content online, but we insist that you subscribe to the printed newsletter to fully appreciate it,” says Editor Lee Strouse.
Copresco produces millions of pages of short-run publications, books and manuals. Projects range from booklets, catalogs, handbooks, textbooks and technical materials to training aids, guidebooks, newsletters, calendars and cookbooks.
The Great Lakes Graphics Association accounts for annual shipments of nearly $19 billion.
