Vibrant Graphics Wins High-Powered IQ Award

Each year, BizTimes Milwaukee honors regional companies with groundbreaking services and products, awarding them with a prestigious IQ Award. This year, digital printing company Vibrant Graphics received the award thanks to an innovation they developed that significantly impacted their industry.

Milwaukee, WI, March 24, 2010 --( After an intense competition across Southeast Wisconsin, Vibrant Graphics prevailed as one of the BizTimes Milwaukee Innovation Quotient (IQ) Awards winners for 2010.

The contest called for businesses throughout the region to nominate an innovative product or service that they have developed, and the awards honor these trend-setting Wisconsin companies. Over the past year, the team at Vibrant has spent considerable time and effort perfecting a new in-mold labeling process, which involves digitally printing labels on thin, unsupported films and laminating for ultimate protection. This application was the first to be used in the nation, and quickly implemented by several large injection molding companies. It gives in-mold labels a new level of functionality and overall appeal. BizTimes Milwaukee recognized the company’s innovative work, awarding them with one of ten honors for this year.

“Vibrant Graphics is pleased to be a winner of the Biz Times IQ Award for innovation,” said Mike Sewart, president of Vibrant Graphics. “This award is emblematic of the Vibrant Graphics culture of embracing new ideas, as well as the quality that is evident in our people and the products supplied to our valued clients.”

Vibrant Graphics will be featured with other award-winners in an upcoming edition of BizTimes Milwaukee, a popular, widely circulated small business magazine. The company will formally receive recognition at an awards luncheon on April 29 at the sixth annual BizTech Conference & Expo, held at Wisconsin State Fair Park. The BizTech Conference & Expo is the largest business-to-business conference in the state.
