PIAs Digital Printing Council Wins Gold Circle Award
Press release from the issuing company
ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA – The Digital Printing Council (DPC), a program of Printing Industries of America, Inc. (PIA), won highest honors in the 2001 ASAE Gold Circle Award Competition for its publication, The Very Last Designer’s Guide to Digital, On-Demand, and Variable-Data Color Printing. Every year, the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) sponsors an awards program that recognizes and celebrates the achievements in excellence and leadership throughout the association industry.
This publication was conceived and created by the DPC, authored by David Clark and Frank Romano of Rochester Institute for Technology, and designed and printed by GATF Press. Designing4Digital (D4D), a free online newsletter developed as a companion to the book, has additional applications, tips, and techniques for effectively designing for digital printing. D4D can be accessed directly from GAIN. Because of the success of this book and D4D, the publication has just recently gone through its second printing.
"It is extremely rewarding to receive recognition on behalf of the Digital Printing Council from ASAE. This publication is a key contribution to the present and the future of digital printing in our industry," said Howard C. (Buzz) Webber, Jr., Chairman of the DPC Steering Committee and Chairman/CEO of Cohber Press, Inc. "I would encourage graphic designers to take advantage of both the book and the free online newsletter, Designing4Digital, so that they will understand specific digital and variable-data printing concepts, and then apply them correctly to their printed products."
