Intelligencer Selected to Print Historic 9/11 Photography Collection
Press release from the issuing company
(Lancaster, PA, October 10, 2005) — Lancaster, PA-based Intelligencer Printing Company was recently selected to reproduce the emotionally powerful Ground Zero images taken by Gary Marlon Suson, the official Ground Zero photographer for the main union of New York’s firefighters. Suson, who had exclusive access to the “pit” where recovery workers toiled in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks, recently opened the Ground Zero Museum Worksho(www.GroundZeroMuseumWorkshop.com) in New York where the photography collection is exhibited.
The Museum is open by appointment only and includes Suson’s photography as well as salvaged remnants from the Ground Zero site. Revenue from the posters and cards will help pay overhead to keep the Museum open and continue to raise money for 9/11 charities.
Intelligencer was chosen as the printer for all promotional collateral associated with the Museum. Using its High Definition printing process, Intelligencer produced 10,000 posters and 14,000 postcards to help raise awareness about the unique Museum and the tribute it represents to the fallen heroes of 9/11.
“When Gary contacted us, I knew we needed to help him in any way we could,” says Dean Baker, Intelligencer’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This wasn’t just another print job, it was a chance to help record history.”
“Intelligencer did an incredible job,” says Suson. “I’m especially pleased with the quality. The images were shot on 3.5 X 3.5 film, so I was concerned we might lose some of the detail in the large poster format. But thanks to Intelligencer’s High Definition printing process nothing was lost. The printing truly captures the poignancy and immediacy of the images.”
