“It’s an honor and a bit humbling to be so highly recognized in so many categories. This is a validation for all our employees who work hard to make sure Think Patented is a leader when it comes to color, quality, and overall production.”
David McNerney, President

Eleven participating associations within the Americas Printing Association Network (APAN) sent their top 15 winning entries from their competitions to the Printing Industries of New England (PINE), where the judging took place. These “best of the best” pieces from the regional competition went head-to-head in the national competition, and the work was judged by three national printing experts with over 90 years of cumulative experience. The judges were chosen from a pool of like individuals that have either owned, operated, or managed a printing facility.

“I was proud to host the first national print competition on behalf of my peers in APAN. It was impressive to see the amazing work of our members from across the country displayed here at PINE,” said Christine Hagopian, PINE President. “The judges were blown away by the quality of the work submitted by our APAN members, using phrases like print magic and wizardry combined and the natural imagery in this piece of perfection.”
