)-- TurnKey Graphics LLC is pleased to announce it has won a Print Excellence and Knowledge (PEAK) Grand Award in a national competition sponsored by award-winning Print Solutions Magazine. A popular printing industry trade publication, Print Solutions Magazine is published by the Print Services & Distribution Association (PSDA) in Alexandria, VA.
TurnKey Graphics won the Grand Award in the “Money Maker” category for a creative and cost effective referral program that helped its client to net a 490 percent return on investment. “This piece is a clear winner,” said the PEAK judges. “The entrant showed that the money saved on printed marketing pieces wasn’t an accident, but was the result of a carefully planned campaign to generate referrals. More importantly, a well-engineered ROI program like this can be a money maker year after year.”
"We're proud to win this award because it shows our ability to provide custom solutions that help our clients improve their business," says Andy Smalley, president of TurnKey Graphics LLC. "Although many marketing and printing companies claim they have solutions for customers, it is gratifying when independent industry experts verify it by providing recognition through these types of awards. Taking care of our customers, solving their problems and improving their business is our focus, and we feel honored to be recognized by Print Solutions Magazine,” added Smalley.
The contest, which drew more than 250 entries from North America and Europe, recognized the work of firms that add value to the print-related products and services they provide customers. The competition spotlights companies that not only meet customers' printing needs through creativity in design, manufacturing, fulfillment and other services, but also solve problems or improve business functions.

PSDA (www.PSDA.org), the publisher of the magazine, is a not-for-profit trade association that has served printing sales professionals for more than 50 years with outstanding publications, trade expositions, education and more recently web services.
"Winning a PEAK Award signifies a sharp focus on solving customer problems or improving a customer's business," says Peter Colaianni, CAE, PSDA's executive vice president. "PEAK awards are won by companies that add value to the products they sell."
The panel of industry experts who judged the contest included:
John Leininger, professor in the Department of Graphic Communications at Clemson University.
