This year’s judges were impressed with the overall quality of print among the 500 entries. “It’s easy in today’s fast paced world to just get the job done, but our Printing Industries Association (PIA) members continue to demonstrate the pride and dedication to their craft that has made Ohio and Northern Kentucky printers some of the best in the world,” says the Association’s president, Jim Cunningham.

KDM P.O.P. Solutions Group won 2 Gold Print Excellence Awards: One in the Large Format Printing category for a screen printed poster for a national fashion retailer. The other Gold is in the Point-of-Purchase category for a large format digital piece introducing a new product launch for a name-brand audio speaker manufacturer.

The second is in the Screen Printing category for a large window banner for a fashion shoe retail chain. And the third Silver is in the Digital Printing category for a unique chalkboard in the shape of a bucket of beers. The display has a special chalk receptive surface.

Lastly, KDM also won 1 Bronze Print Excellence Award in the Campaigns/Promotions category for a grocery retailer’s Tailgate Headquarters in-store POP campaign consisting of multiple print elements including posters, decals, and tent cards.
