Annual Competition Acknowledges Leading Package Printer as Industry's Best

LOS ANGELES - September 30, 2011 - Superior Graphic Packaging, California's leading large-format packaging printer, today announced that it has won the prestigious Gold Ink Award. Produced by Printing Impressions Magazine, and recognized as the industry's most acclaimed printing competition, the awards honor the most outstanding print projects produced by printing manufacturers, designers, direct marketers and more from around the world. Over 1,000 submissions were received in categories including digital printing, magazines, commercial printing, packaging and more. Superior Graphic Packaging won Gold in the poster category for its expansive and colorful Grand Teton National Park poster.

"It's always an honor to be recognized by our peers for achievements in the printing industry - especially because it underscores our unwavering commitment to the highest quality printing standards," said Doug Rawson, founder and CEO of Superior Graphic Packaging. "We are known primarily for our packaging work so it is particularly gratifying to be recognized for our ability to deliver award-winning poster printing as well."

All entries were judged by a distinguished panel of graphic artists, production managers and print buyers on a host of criteria - from print quality and technical difficulty to overall visual effect.

"We received a number of high-caliber submissions, and the posters category is always highly competitive," said Erik Cagle, senior editor of Printing Impressions magazine. "Superior Graphic Packaging did an amazing job of capturing the beauty and spectacle that is Grand Teton National Park, creating a work of natural art for the ages."
