Binding Industries Association Issues Call for Entry for the 2012 Product of Excellence Awards

For over three decades, the Binding Industries Association's annual Product of Excellence awards recognized outstanding examples of craftsmanship. Winning a Product of Excellence award tells your customers and prospects that the work your company produces is among the very best.

A Competitive Advantage

Winning can set you apart from the competition and secure new business. Winning companies use their triumph to solidify client relationships, grow their business, and enhance their standing in the marketplace.

In the decades that the Product of Excellence awards have been around, many things have changed in the binding industry. However, one thing has remained a constant: the value of winning a Product of Excellence award.

Every company produces pieces that are outstanding. From around the world, binderies send their work to be judged against that of their peers.

Your company, too, can put the benefits of winning to work for you!
