Sewickley, PA - The Binding Industries Association (BIA), the world's largest association for trade binderies, graphic finishers, custom loose-leaf manufacturers, and suppliers to those industries, is pleased to announce the call for entries for the 2010 Feingold Award. Entries for this competition are due April 23.
The Feingold Award began in 1992 as a tribute to Bill Feingold of Charles Leonard Inc., to honor products and processes that break new ground in the graphic finishing and custom loose-leaf manufacturing industries.
Those eligible for entry include suppliers, domestic or international, for technology that helps advance trade binderies, graphic finishers, and custom loose-leaf manufacturers. The award is given to the company whose product or process is deemed most unique or innovative by a panel of experts.
"It's crucial to recognize quality and outstanding achievements from the supplier community," says BIA Board member Patricia Traynor, Finish On Demand. "Suppliers bring life to projects, help with tough challenges, and advance the industry in which we work."
The top supplier winners will be honored at the 2010 BIA Mid-Management Conference, being held May 17-19 at the Baltimore Hilton in Maryland, which is considered by many to be the preeminent conference for the binding industry.
