Some of today’s most-influential technology players involved with printing in Canada have put their support behind the upcoming Canadian Printing Awards program, designed to celebrate and recognize the efforts of printers across the country.
HP Canada has signed on as one of the Platinum Sponsors of the Canadian Printing Awards (CPA), while the company will also serve as title sponsor of the program’s Environmental Printing categories. The CPA program is organized into three sections, including: five Environmental Printing categories, 20 Quality Printing categories, and four Industry Achievement categories.
Agfa Canada, Fujifilm Canada, Sun Chemical Canada, the Sustainable Forestry Initiative and Unisource have also moved to support the efforts of printers in Canada, with each company signing on as Gold Sponsors. Silver Sponsors of the program include Domtar, Epson Canada, KBR Graphics and Presstek, while organizers of the upcoming drupa 2012 exhibition in Germany will present direct support of Canadian printing at the upcoming CPA gala.
PrintAction will host the Canadian Printing Awards gala, with a sit-down dinner produced by executive chef Joe Levesque, on the first night of Graphics Canada (November 10, 2011) in Toronto.
Environmental Printing remains a cornerstone of the Canadian Printing Awards, based on the 5-year development of five key categories, including: Most Environmentally Progressive Printing Company, 250+ employees; Most Environmentally Progressive Printing Company, 1 to 249 employees; Most Environmentally Progressive Printing Technology; Most Environmentally Progressive Packaging Project (all processes); and Most Environmentally Progressive Printing Project.
The Industry Achievement categories are a free, nominations-based initiative to recognize leadership in Canadian printing, while the 20 Quality Printing categories are based on applications ranging from variable-data printing and direct-mail to book and newspaper manufacturing.
