Press release from the issuing company
October 27, 2007 - Cohoes, NY - Mohawk Fine Papers Inc. announces the winners of the third quarter Strathmore Letterhead Competition.
There was an increase in the number of entries and variation of design styles received for the third quarter judging. "If there were any specific trends we noticed in this round of entries, it would be specialty processes - we saw more designs incorporating engraving, letterpress, or solid color coverage on the backs of the letterhead and business cards. The quality and creativity of the work being submitted is impressive," says Laura Shore, Senior Vice President, Communications, Mohawk Fine Papers.
