“I am very proud of the Insta team,” said Janet Wells, President & CEO of Insta Graphic Systems. “Our work was compared to the best in the world, and we came out on top. That’s quite an accomplishment!” More than 66 companies from around the world entered the competition, submitting a total of 353 prints in 50 product categories.
“The judges had a very difficult time this year, not because of the sheer volume of entries, but because of the overall quality of the work. Judges in virtually every category told me the entries were so good that choosing winners was a real challenge,” said Johnny Shell, SGIA’s Vice President of Technical Services. Shell added that the Golden Image competition is judged on the technical accomplishments of each entry, excluding aesthetic issues from the evaluation and scoring process. Prints are judged on the level of difficulty and quality of execution. “Winning the Golden Image Award for several categories puts Insta Graphic Systems among the top specialty printers in the world in terms of quality and capability. The ability to consistently print such high-quality products indicates that Insta Graphic Systems is an expert at controlling the many variables involved in specialty printing,” Shell said.
