The end of the year is still a handful of weeks away, but now that we are into the home straight on 2017 thoughts are turning to awards and accolades. The printing industry is no different in this respect which is why Irish Printer, along with sponsors Canon, are gearing up to present the 40th year of the Irish Print Awards.
Finalists have now been announced in categories as diverse as Book Printing and Commercial Vehicle Wrap, and a special category recognising the efforts and innovation of SME Printers. This last category is an important place on the winners’ podium as it highlights the work done by printers working at the SME scale, some of whom will surely drive the industry here forward in the years to come.
Philip Brady, Head of Canon, sums things up well:
“2017 is a very important year for both Irish Printer magazine and Canon Ireland as this year marks the Irish Print Awards 40th Anniversary and Canon Ireland’s 30th Anniversary. These are major milestones for both the Irish Print market and Canon so it was a natural fit.”
Nominations are still open in several business and individual categories including Best Customer Service Team, Young Print Manager and Printer Personality of the Year.
The awards take place this year at the Aviva Stadium on December 1st, 2017. Details, nomination forms and tickets are available at the Awards homepage and they are on Twitter where news of nominations are updated as they come in.
