Strategic Factory a Hit at the PGAMA Excellence in Print Awards Gala

March 24, 2017 / Company News

The printing industry is alive and well, as we experienced firsthand on Wednesday, March 22 at the Printing and Graphic Association MidAtlantic’s (PGAMA) 13th Annual Excellence In Print Awards Gala.

This event showcases the incredible work our region has produced—from binding and finishing to annual reports, from packaging to maps, from folders and brochures to magazines—and everything in-between (there are 49 different categories you could enter).

More than 300 members and guests gathered at Martins Crosswinds in Greenbelt to enjoy an evening of food, drink, networking and celebration.

Entries were judged by a committee of graphic arts experts outside the region who evaluate the quality of printing, including degree of difficulty and technical expertise.

Of the 22 pieces Strategic Factory submitted, nine were selected in their respective categories. We entered a variety of pieces including business cards, brochures, menus, our 2017 calendar, an acrylic tabletop centerpiece, vinyl wall graphics, photos of vehicle wraps and more.

Strategic Factory ended up taking home three coveted Q Awards: one for our work on Fratelli’s restaurant menu, one for a package we designed, produced and mailed to all participants in the Earnst and Young (EY) Entrepreneur Of The Year 2016 Maryland competition, and one for our fleet of Strategic Factory wrapped vehicles.

Additionally, we were extremely honored to receive the Spirit of Excellence Award for our unique 2017 calendar (judges selected just ONE winning piece from the more than ELEVEN THOUSAND submissions!).

We want to thank our dedicated team—experts in their respective fields—for all their hard work day in and day out. And of course, a huge thank you to our loyal clients for working with us to create these award-winning pieces!

We’re already looking forward to next year’s Excellence in Print Awards Gala. Consider this is an open invitation to any business looking for an award-winning printing and marketing company…contact us today and let us create your next masterpiece!
