In-Print 2021 Deadline is Today: Get Busy
After a one-month extension, the deadline to enter the In-Print 2021 contest is today, March 31. It's time to get busy selecting samples of your in-plant's best work to enter in this prestigious competition, the only print contest exclusively for in-plants.
With less printing being done this year due to COVID-19, your chances of winning have gone up. Even if you didn't get the chance to print the complex types of work you did in the past, no one else did either. More basic print jobs will rise to the top this time.
Past winners have engaged their operators in the selection process, asking them to put aside five or six pristine copies of particularly eye-catching, complex pieces. Once February rolls around, the manager then gets involved in sorting through these potential submissions and picking the very best ones to enter. Your operators will be proud to know their work is being considered for entry into this national contest, a collaboration between In-plant Impressions and the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA).
In-Print 2021 includes numerous categories for both “Offset” and “Non-Offset” pieces. Plus, there are categories exclusively for in-plants with 10 or fewer employees. And there is a category this year for COVID-19 floor graphics, window clings, signage, stickers, etc.
So get your employees involved today and start saving samples. You owe it to them to honor their hard work by entering it in In-Print 2021. Here are some tips to help you select the very best pieces for entry. View the rules and categories here.
