The Shen’s Art Printing Co., Ltd. has been celebrating since recently winning a prestigious award for production of the Taiwanese edition of Elle magazine. In achieving its Gold award at the 2012 Asian Print Awards, Shen’s Art is ranked among the very best quality printers in Asia.
Utilizing its Goss M-600 press, Shen’s Art won Gold for Elle magazine in the category of ‘Web Offset on Coated Stock (70 gsm and above)’. According to Mr. Jeff Shen, vice general manager of Shen’s Art, the company was founded as and is predominantly a sheetfed printer, so the award is particularly pleasing as it signifies the company’s equal mastery over the art of web printing.
"At Shen’s Art we’re proud of our continuous efforts to innovate and develop our product offering and it was for this reason that we were the first printing company in Taiwan to install the 16-page Goss M-600 web press," explains Mr. Jeff Shen "But it has always been essential that we maintain the highest standards in every aspect of our service. This latest award underlines our efforts to fully live up to the founding principles of the company – namely to combine art and printing with a production goal of perfection, beauty, and fine quality."
With the aim of improving and promoting print in Asia, each submission in the 10th Asian Print Awards was evaluated for quality by an independent judging team of print professionals with specialist knowledge in print design, prepress, substrates, inks, consumables and print finishing. Shen’s Art has been printing the Taiwan edition of Elle magazine on its Goss M-600 press for 15 years. The submitted entry was appreciated by the Asian Print Awards panel for its excellent print quality and professional work in the print field. "Shen’s Art is a textbook example of the best that Asia has to offer in professionalism, high quality and the unrelenting pursuit of perfection, so we’re particularly pleased they decided to enter these Awards and that they won appropriate recognition for their skills and dedication," comments Tim Mercy, vice president of commercial web sales for Goss International in Asia.
