Virginia Tech Wins Print Award of Excellence and Most Outstanding Printed Piece

Virginia Tech's Printing Services received two awards in February 2011 for their dedication to excellence for Outreach Now, an annual publication of Outreach and International Affairs and Virginia Tech's Research Magazine.

The magazines were submitted to the Printing Industries of Virginia (PIVA) Best in Print 2010 contest. Representatives from the Printing Industries of America (PIA) judged each submission on the excellence of preparation, printing, binding, skill of the printer, difficulty of the job, and absence of flaws in the piece.

The following are the two awards received by Virginia Tech:

  • The Best in Print First Place was awarded for the most outstanding printed piece in the magazine sheetfed four–color process category for Outreach Now.
  • The Best in Print Award of Excellence was received for recognition of excellence in the magazine sheetfed four–color process category for Virginia Tech's Research Magazine.

“These are important awards because we competed against commercial printers of our size who likely have newer and better equipment than we have. We know we produce high quality work for Virginia Tech, and it is gratifying to see our work recognized by other printers in the industry,” said our Printing Services Manager.

Virginia Tech was one among eight companies that submitted a total of 50 entries in their class. The contest featured 500 pieces submitted in 40 different categories of printing. Printers are separated into three classes depending on their number of employees. “To win Best in Print Awards is a real honor and indicates the printing was judged superior to other printing inspected by the professional print judges,” stated Alice Fletcher, PIVA Executive Director.
