International Label & Printing wins four GLGA awards

May 21, 2013

The Illinois-based company is the recipient of one Best in Category award and three Awards of Excellence.

The Great Lakes Graphics Association (GLGA) has announced that International Label & Printing Co., Inc. of Elk Grove Village, IL, USA is an award winner in the 2013 Graphics Excellence Awards (GEA) competition. The judging was concluded on April 11 with nearly 1,000 print entries in the competition. The GEA competition is one of the largest printing competitions in the nation.

International Label & Printing won a total of four awards. It won one “Best of Category” Award for Pipeworks Brewing labels, and three “Awards of Excellence” — two for Pipeworks labels and one for 18th Street Brewery labels. The “Best of Category” winner will automatically qualify and be entered into the Printing Industries of America (PIA) national Premier Print Awards competition, with the winners to be announced later this summer.

A panel of out-of-state judges with extensive experience in printing and print production was brought in to examine the work. Each entry was judged on its own merit in a category with similar printed pieces. The judging criteria included registration, crossovers, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonal qualities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, finishing, bindery and overall visual impact.
