V3 Recognized for Print Excellence at PIASC’s 2011 Regional Competition

V3 received recognition for print excellence at the recent PIASC (Printing Industries Association of Southern California) Graphics Night held at the Pacific Palms Resort in Industry Hills.

V3 was among a select group, representing the best in printing throughout Southern California across 96 possible categories. Judging during PIASC’s Seventh Annual Regional Competition was based on 6 criteria: print reproduction; layout, design and typography; stock compatibility; binding and finishing; difficulty; and overall excellence.

V3’s impressive showing included eight Awards of Excellence, seven Certificates of Merit and three Best of Category awards for a total of 18. Judged as the most outstanding in their categories were the following entries:

1. Product catalog for Scosche Industries

2. Booklet for Santa Barbara Tile – Jeff Shelton Tile Design

3. Single promotional self-mailer for Artist Representation

“It’s such an honor to be considered among the best in our industry,” says Mike Szanger, V3’s vice president of sales and marketing. He adds: “These awards are a testament to the collaborative relationships we enjoy with our clients and the collective talent and commitment of our people.”
