Oregon Printing Communications is proud to announce it was recently awarded a 2018 Print Excellence Award from the Printing Industries of Ohio & N.Kentucky.

Each year, Printing Industries of Ohio & N.Kentucky holds its Print Excellence Awards Competition to recognize Ohio and northern Kentucky printers who have demonstrated excellence in 35 categories. This year, member companies submitted close to 350 printed pieces, and two out-of-state expert judges ranked them in a regional competition. This year’s judges were Ken Eberhart, Merrick Printing Company (Louisville, KY); and Jeff Ekstein, Willow Printing Group (Ontario, Canada).

Printing Industries Association President, Jim Cunningham, stated how impressed this year’s judges were with the overall quality of all of the entries. “Ken and Jeff are experienced judges and printers whose combined expertise spans more than 50 years in print. Yet, even they were impressed with our members’ incredible work. It’s easy in today’s fast paced world to just get the job done, but our Association members continue to demonstrate the pride and dedication to their craft that has made Ohio and Northern Kentucky printers some of the best in the world!”

Oregon Printing Communications won a Silver Award in the Direct Mail category. Our entry, entitled “Living on the Edge” was a postcard featuring a unique technique: Edge painting. Edge painting can help branded pieces stand-out and is especially useful on items like business cards.

Award-winning, painted-edge direct mail.
