2013 NAPL Marketing Plus Award Winners Named

The National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL) has cited 17 companies from a dozen U.S. states and three foreign countries as winners of 2013 NAPL Marketing Plus Awards. Winners were recognized last night during the NAPL Soderstrom Awards Dinner at The Gleacher Center in downtown Chicago.

Leading the list of Gold Award winners is Flottman Company of Crestview Hills, KY, which took home three gold awards, including two in the category of Corporate Identity. Four other companies—Calitho, Concord, CA; DS Graphics, Lowell, MA; The Standard Group, Reading, PA; and Action Graphics, Inc., Lincoln Park, NJ—each won two golds. In terms of overall awards, DS Graphics was top honoree, with a total of nine winning entries.

“We continue to be impressed by the high quality of these entries from companies of all sizes,” said Samantha Lake, NAPL Marketing Director, who led the judging panel. “The innovative and highly effective use of print and multi-media is proof that printers worldwide are not only embracing, but excelling in their role as marketing services providers.”

NAPL Marketing Plus Awards are selected on the basis of points gained via an objective scoring measurement that takes into account both the quality of the individual end product or campaign and its success in meeting its stated goals. Awards were presented in 11 categories this year.
