Graphic Village Honored with Twenty-One 2024 Print Excellence Awards

Graphic Village is proud to announce that they were awarded twenty-one 2024 Print Excellence Awards from Graphic Media Alliance (GMA) at the 2024 Southern Region Print Week reception on February 29, 2024.

Each year, GMA holds its Print Excellence Awards competition to recognize Ohio, Michigan, and northern Kentucky printers who have demonstrated printing excellence in 36 categories. New for 2024, GMA was pleased to welcome back Michael Klyn (retired from Peake DeLancey Printers in Hyattsville, MD). Michael’s extensive background in print production and quality control, combined with the expert knowledge of our returning judge, Jeff Ekstein (Willow Printing Group, Ontario, Canada), made for an outstanding duo as each entry underwent careful review and deliberation. The level of competition was so competitive; several categories required the judges to search for minor imperfections to determine a winner.

GV COO, Mark O’Bryan, Director of Marketing Mark Weinstein, and GV President Larry Kuhlman, accept a ‘Best of Region’ award.

In addition to winning nine Gold Awards, six Silver Awards, and five Bronze awards, GV also won a “Best of Region Award” for our Otterbein Senior Life Promotional Campaign.
