Québec Printers Celebrate at Gutenberg Gala

June 2, 2015  By PrintAction Staff

Printing industry executives from across Québec gathered at the Montreal Science Centre in mid-May to recognize some of Canada’s best print at the 33rd annual Gutenberg Gala. The printing program and competition, organized by the Institut des communications graphiques et de l’imprimabilité, is juried by an independent committee.
“This year, the committee was given the mandate to carry forward the Gala across Quebec, and I am pleased that several companies have answered the call. The contest pushes the boundaries of each, and responding to the challenges raised by the talent and creativity of companies, communication agencies and print buyers of Quebec, regardless of company size,” said André Goyette, CEO, Imprimerie Contact Netpak-Division and Chairman of Gutenberg 2015 Committee.

Goyette continues to point to the growth in display graphics and packaging submissions and this year’s introduction of flexography as a category. “Interest in the contest and the gala continues to grow, and we are very pleased,” he said. Fifteen awards were presented at the Gutenberg Gala, including:
