Get Your In-plant National Recognition
Your employees work hard to produce quality printed pieces. As their manager, you should be working just as hard to get them recognized for their efforts. One way is by collecting samples of their excellent work and entering them in In-Print 2014, the only printing contest exclusively for in-plants.
In-Print boasts more than 30 categories for both offset and digital printing, so your shop's best work will have plenty of opportunities to win. Plus, there are categories specifically for users of MFDs and copiers, so you'll no longer be competing against iGen3s and NexPresses.
Other special categories include:
- Combined offset/non-offset
IPMA members pay nothing for the first three entries; non-members pay just $30 per entry. (Compare this with other printing contests, which charge more than $100 per entry!) The January 31 deadline is coming fast, so have your staff gather samples now—four copies of each entry. Make sure those samples have great registration, crisp folds and no hickeys so they make it to the final round of judging. Entries must have been produced in 2013.
Entering the contest is well worth the effort. Think of the morale boost your operators will get when something they printed gets honored nationally. Read the rules, see the categories and find a link to the online entry form here.
