“Our goal is to highlight the technologies that are likely to have a significant impact on our industry,” said Jim Workman, Vice President of Technology and Research at Printing Industries of America. Since the inception of the annual awards in 1978, hundreds of InterTech-awarded technologies have substantially and significantly changed the printing and graphic communications industry. From software enhancements to prepress and beyond, there are few areas of the print and graphic communications process that have not been improved by a past InterTech recipient, the PIA pointed out.

Honourees receive the InterTech Lucite Star Award and recognition among industry peers. They’re also featured in industry publications, news releases and conference presentations. Due to the shifting nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision to hold an awards gala, as well as details regarding the distribution of awards to honourees, will be determined at a later date, said the organization.
