C.J. Graphics, Friesens, Pollard Banknote and PrintWest earn Benny Awards

The Printing Industries of America’s 68th Annual Premier Print Awards Competition recognizes the highest quality printed pieces in various categories from around the world. Each year, only the most worthy pieces receive Awards of Recognition, Certificates of Merit, and the highest honour – the Benny statue. In fact, the Benny has become a universally recognized symbol for excellence in the printing industry.

Entries in this year’s competition arrived from eight different countries, with four leading Canadian printers receiving Best of Category Bennys. These included C.J. Graphics of Toronto, Ontario (8 Bennys), Friesens of Altona, Manitoba (1 Benny); Pollard Banknote of Winnipeg, Manitoba (1 Benny), and PrintWest of Regina, Saskatchewan (2 Bennys). Over 2,200 entries were judged and the winners will receive their Bennys at The Premier Print Awards Gala, September 10, 2017 during the Print 17 tradeshow in Chicago.
