Quad/Graphics has been recognized by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) for excellence in driving technology innovation and supporting growth for the mailing industry.
Postmaster General and Chief Executive Officer Patrick R. Donahoe presented the inaugural Partnership for Growth award to Quad/Graphics at the annual National Postal Forum, held March 17-20 in San Francisco.
"Quad/Graphics has played a tremendous leadership role in our industry, and has pushed the boundaries of innovation and technology use," said the Postmaster General. "Our collaboration with Quad/Graphics demonstrates how technology is making mail more powerful and transforming the mailing industry."
Early on, Quad/Graphics shared information about its interactive print solutions, which helped the USPS make decisions on technology-driven promotional initiatives using QR codes.
Quad/Graphics continues to advocate for the USPS and its use of integrating technologies to increase mail volume. The company also is a leader in developing new technology tools and applications, as well as state-of-the-art performance measurement tools that meet the dynamic needs of today’s marketers and publishers.
"Our success as a company is directly linked to our long-standing commitment to technology leadership," said Joel Quadracci, President & CEO of Quad/Graphics. "As innovative people redefining print, we are constantly developing and deploying solutions that build on the proven power of print and mail in a multichannel media world. Through our suite of interactive print solutions, we are redefining how printed materials can be used in the mail to better engage consumers and maximize business results.
