CINCINNATI, OH (January, 2018) – KDM P.O.P. Solutions Group is proud to announce it was awarded a total of five 2018 Print Excellence Awards from the Printing Industries of Ohio • Northern Kentucky.

Each year, Printing Industries of Ohio • N. Kentucky holds its Print Excellence Awards Competition to reward Ohio and Northern Kentucky printers that demonstrate excellence in 35 categories. This year’s judges thought the quality of the print among the 400 entries just keep getting better every year. “Winning a Print Excellence Award is more than just a personal success and mark of true craftsmanship. It shows customers that you are leaders in the industry,” said PIANKO Association President, Jim Cunningham.

KDM P.O.P. Solutions Group won three Gold Print Excellence Awards in the Point-of-Purchase category. These included a window graphic for the Lottery industry, produced on the new Komori Lithrone GL offset press, a large poster for a children’s fashion retailer off the large format Planeta litho press ((pictured), and a corrugated case stacker for a beverage manufacturer produced on its large format digital flatbed press. The Gold winning entries will also be entered into an association-wide (Printing Industries of America) competition for Best of Category and Best of Show prizes in September.

KDM also won two Silver Print Excellence Awards. One in the Point-of-Purchase category for an offset aisle violator for a big box retailer. The second Silver was in the Campaigns/Promotions category for a home furniture retailer, consisting of multiple printed pieces including posters, tent cards and ceiling danglers for a holiday promotion.
