Quad/Graphics, Inc. (NYSE: QUAD) today announced that its Commercial & Specialty and Direct Marketing groups have earned multiple awards in Printing Impressions magazine’s annual Gold Ink Awards, one of the industry’s most prestigious annual print competitions.
Quad’s winning entries, which included two Gold, one Silver, three Bronze and seven Pewter awards, will be recognized at the Gold Ink Awards & Hall of Fame banquet September 9 in Chicago.
The Gold awards represent the highest distinction in an awards program that draws more than 1,000 entries every year and were bestowed for Quad/Graphics’ printing of the Jacobs 2012 Annual Report and a Lancôme pop-up magazine insert. The Silver award was given for Loupe Magazine, the publication of the Photographic Resource Center, a non-profit organization based at Boston University. The Bronze awards were conferred for the Next Level Apparel 2013 Business Catalog, a TLC Honey Boo Boo magazine insert and a Garage Team Mazda direct mail piece. Pewter awards recognized Quad/Graphics’ work on Exxon Mobil’s 2013 Energy Outlook report, catalogs for Bed, Bath & Beyond, Neiman Marcus, J.Hilburn and Costa, and direct mail pieces for Nissan and Garage Team Mazda.
“The awards attest to the high quality work that we produce to help our clients stand out, promote their brands and achieve greater results in their respective marketplace,” said Craig Faust, President of Quad/Graphics’ Commercial & Specialty. “Since Quad/Graphics established our Commercial & Specialty division in 2010, we have more than doubled the size and scope of our operations to meet our clients’ demands. Award-winning product and service quality – performed in a quick-turn environment – is the standard we have set for all of our Commercial & Specialty facilities.”
Quad/Graphics’ Direct Marketing division showcased its digital printing and variable data and personalization in winning its three awards: “Our winning entries demonstrate how marketers are increasingly using data and personalization to create even more relevant and engaging direct mail,” said Steve Jaeger, President of Quad/Graphics’ Direct Marketing.
