Homework for the Holidays
As Christmas approaches and you scramble to finish jobs over the next week, don't forget to keep an eye out for printed pieces you can enter in the In-Print 2018 contest. Your operators will be proud just to know their work was selected for entry, as will the customers who ordered those jobs. You owe it to them to make the effort.
In-Print 2018 — the only printing contest exclusively for in-plants — is an excellent way to show off the quality of your shop's work. Jointly sponsored by In-plant Graphics and the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA), the contest includes numerous categories for both “Offset” and “Non-Offset” pieces. See the category list here.
As a perk for IPMA members, their first three entries are free. Other in-plants pay a very low entry fee—just $35 per piece. (Compare this with other printing contests, which charge more than $100 per entry!) New this year are three categories exclusively for smaller in-plants, so they don't have to compete against the larger shops.
