PINE has announced that DMM, Inc. of Scarborough, Maine is an award winner in the Association’s New England regional Awards of Excellence Competition. The announcement was made with hundreds of industry professionals in attendance at PINE’s Industry Awards Gala, held at the Boston Marriott Burlington in Burlington, MA on April 11. PINE’s Awards of Excellence Competition attracted over 300 entries from over 35 printing and imaging companies across New England competing in a variety of printing and graphic communications categories such as best annual report, direct mail campaign, labels & packaging, and more.
DMM, Inc. won a Pinnacle Award (Best of Category) for its DMM Rebrand Cross-Media Campaign and two Awards of Recognition in the categories of Digital Printing: Campaign and Digital Printing: Customized/Personalized/Variable Data. A panel of judges with extensive experience in printing and print production, were brought in to examine the wide range of work submitted. Each entry was judged anonymously on its own merit in a category with similar printed pieces. The judging criteria included: registration, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonal qualities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, overall visual impact and bindery.
“Our judges have a total of 80 years of print production experience and are invited across the country to other PIA associations to judge, so they have seen all levels of print,” said Christine Hagopian, PINE’s President. “The quality of PINE members’ entries can stand up against any others across the country. Our members should be very proud of that.”
