Chicago, IL – GPA is proud to have honored the 2013 AAF Metro Phoenix ADDY Award winners by supplying thepaper for the program’s Awards Booklet. For the fifth year, AAF Metro Phoenix, the local chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF), has partnered with GPA and the local printing community through Printing Industries of Arizona/New Mexico, whose members provide the printing. PIAZ/NM’s President, Sandi Neuman, has turnedto GPA for support when special projects are being produced for the organization or any of the related graphic organizations.
“GPA has been phenomenal with their enthusiastic participation in our community and with our organization. Their ongoing support has allowed us to be good citizens in the local graphic communications community, support without which many of these projects would just not happen,” says Neuman. The book was printed on GPA’s Ultra Digital® 110# White Matte Cover and 100# White Matte Text. The sheets were cut, folded and saddle stitched to create the finished piece. This year’s booklet was produced at O’Neil Printing, one of Phoenix’s leading print providers, on their HP Indigo 5000.
