2014 BIA Product of Excellence Awards

The winners of the Binding Industries Association's 2014 Product of Excellence awards are stellar, as they are every year. The creativity and technical expertise that goes into the creation of each project is, quite simply, some of the best work from around the world.

The BIA Annual Conference, held this past spring in Dallas, is the definitive event for graphic finishers, binderies, custom loose-leaf manufacturers, information packaging companies, and industry suppliers to engage in empowering sessions and networking opportunities. Attendees of this year’s conference shared new profit-building solutions and connected with leading industry suppliers to find profitable business solutions. Attendees also had an opportunity to tour three facilities local to North Texas: digital print firm ABCO, Artifacture art studio which specializes in laser cutting and dimensional paper design, and transactional printer O’Neil Data Systems.

Founded in 2008, the Hall of Fame honors binding and loose leaf manufacturing industry executives who have gone far beyond the standard obligations to become a dominant force in the shaping of BIA and the business of finishing.
