In-Print 2020 Contest Deadline Extended
Entering your in-plant’s work in a printing contest exclusively for in-plants should seem like a no-brainer. What better way to bring awareness to your in-plant than by entering pieces you produced into a national contest?
Yet most in-plant managers just put it off, complaining they are too busy, and they let this opportunity pass them by. Or they imagine they can’t compete against larger, better-equipped in-plants, ignoring the categories exclusively for smaller shops.
If I’ve made you feel guilty, good. By now you should know that just entering pieces produced by your hard-working employees will make them proud, showing them how highly you think of their efforts.
But as for that “too busy” thing that so many managers hide behind, well, we’ve decided to remove that as an excuse by adding a full month to the deadline.
That’s right, instead of Jan. 31, the new deadline for In-Print 2020 will be Feb. 29. (This is a leap year. I checked.) So now there’s no reason in the world you can’t find an extra hour to select several of your bet pieces from 2019, fill out the simple online entry form, and mail them in. No reason.
In-Print 2020, a collaboration between In-plant Impressions and the In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA), includes numerous categories for both “Offset” and “Non-Offset” pieces. Plus, there are categories exclusively for in-plants with 10 or fewer employees. 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 2020. Here are some tips to help you select the very best pieces for entry.
