Lancaster Printer Scores 10 Awards for Excellence - a Perfect 10 for Intelligencer at Neographics 2011

Lancaster, PA, September 15, 2011 --( The sky was the limit for Intelligencer Printing at Neographics 2011 as the Lancaster, PA, printer took home a Power of Print Award for a stunning brochure produced for NASA. But that was just one of 10 Intelligencer printing projects honored during the annual exhibition and dinner ceremony, held on May 5th at The Crystal Tea Room in Philadelphia. The company also received Best of Category Awards for a catalog, brochures and a magazine, all four colors or more. Plus, they accepted six Franklin Awards of Excellence honoring a variety of catalogs, brochures, booklets, calendar, and a self-promotion brochure, all featuring the company’s proprietary high-definition printing process, and unique coatings.

In addition to the print awards, Denny Bushong, a pressroom supervisor and Intell employee of 46 years earned the Graphic Arts Associations “Craftsperson of The Year Award.” “Once again this year’s entries were very competitive, but this year Intelligencer should be especially proud of their performance. The first two elimination rounds were judged by Printing Industries of America’s technical staff, so judging was even more rigorous than in the past. To win 10 awards, including a nomination for the prestigious Power of Print Award honor, is quite an achievement. This confirms that Intelligencer is able to produce extraordinary printing on a very consistent basis. This year they produced excellent work for companies like NASA, Armstrong, Performance Bicycle, QVC, WP Carey and a host of others. These firms depend on having the highest level of print quality,” said Marge Baumhauer, President of the Graphic Arts Association, hosts of Neographics 2011.

It’s a good feeling,” says Michael Stief, President and CEO, Intelligencer Printing.
