Davenport, Iowa – June 23, 2017 - The Printing & Imaging Association of Georgia (PIAG) announced that ElandersUSA, Elanders Americas’ Acworth, Georgia facility, is an award winner in its 2017 Print Excellence Competition. The competition is one of the largest printing competitions in the nation drawing several hundred entries.A panel of two out-of-state judges with extensive experience in printing and print production were brought in to examine the entries.

The judging criteria included: registration, 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, overall visual impact, and bindery. Of our six submissions, four were deemed Best of Category, qualifying us for the Top Notch Award that will be announced at the ImPRESS Showcase & Print Celebration in August. The remaining two entries earned Award of Excellence recognition. Below are our award winning entries.
