The Academy of Screen Printing Technology (ASPT) presented its Dave Swormstedt, Sr. Memorial Award and welcomed three new members during the 2011 SGIA Expo (New Orleans, October 19-21).
This year's Swormstedt Award was presented to Bea Purcell and Laura Maybaum for their article, "The Future for Curing," which was published in two parts of "Specialist Printing Worldwide" magazine — in the fourth issue of 2010, and the first in 2011. Both women work as market segment managers for Nazdar, Inc.
The Swormstedt Award, founded in 1978, recognizes the best article or technical paper, written on any aspect of the screen printing industry and published in the previous fiscal year. The winners are chosen, annually, by members of the Academy.
ASPT, a group of leaders who support technological advancements and growth in the screen printing industry, also welcomed its newest members, who were inducted at the 2011 SGIA Expo:
James Ortolani, HIX Corporation
Johnny Shell, SGIA
Ad Versteeg, Evident
Combined, the three men bring more than 68 years of specialty imaging and screen printing experience to ASPT. Learn more about the Academy's inductees.
