Graphic Excellence Awards Finalists Announced


Yesterday the finalists were announced for the Printing Industries of the Gulf Coast’s (PIGC) 2012 Graphic Excellence Awards (GEA), which will be held on Wednesday, April 18th. Listed below are the SWP entries that have won an Award of Excellence or above. In addition to the Award of Excellence, there are several other top awards, such as Best of Category and Award of Merit for each category in three different divisions. The GEA banquet is held to announce the Best of Category, top division, special category and top show winners. The entries that are bolded below have won one of these awards and will be announced during the program in April.

This annual regional print competition affords a unique opportunity for SWP to not only recognize our clients, but showcase the superb craftsmanship of our employees. The pieces entered in the competition represent the finest printed materials produced by the leading printers and designers in this region of the country. Many companies use this as the first step in their quest of winning a Benny, the award given at the international competition, Printing Industries of America Premier Print Awards. SWP was awarded a Benny in 2009.

Congratulations to our winning clients listed below, as well as to our phenomenal production staff for producing these great pieces! SWP will announce the final results right after the GEA banquet in April.
