Graphic Village, LLC is proud to announce that it was recently awarded five 2019 Print Excellence Awards 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 and two out-of-state expert judges ranked them in a regional competition. This year’s judges were retired printer and longtime Premier Print Award judge Michael Klyn (North Carolina); and Jeff Ekstein, Willow Printing Group (Ontario, Canada), who ranked them in both regional and statewide competition.

Printing Industries Association President, Jim Cunningham, stated how impressed this year’s judges were with the overall quality of the entries.

“Michael and Jeff are very experienced judges and printers whose combined expertise spans more than 75 years in print. They were impressed with our members’ incredible and creative work. It’s easy in today’s fast-paced world to just get the job done, but our Associate 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!”

Graphic Village, LLC. won the following awards:

  • 4 Gold Awards
  • 1 Silver Award

Each of the Gold award winners in the regional competition are entered in an association-wide competition for Best of Category and Best of Show prizes that will be awarded in September at the 2019 Grand Ceremony sponsored by Millcraft, held in Cincinnati, Ohio.
