Mimaki Announces the My Mimaki Contest Winners

With the recent renovation of Mimaki USA headquarters showroom, the decision was made to create a contest with the goal of uncovering fresh designs from Mimaki end-users to display in their new expansive showroom. So Mimaki challenged print professionals and shops from around the US to submit their most innovative and outstanding print projects produced on their Mimaki printers. Even after decades of innovation in printing, Mimaki print experts were delightfully surprised by the creativity of their customers.

The response was overwhelming, “The number of entrants and the quality of their work exceeded our expectations,” according to Paul McGovern, Marketing & Promotions Manager at Mimaki USA.  Paul also noted, “Our winners were chosen for their original design and execution, which exhibited a level of creativity consistent with an industry that is constantly looking for new ways to push the envelope.”

A Mimaki panel reviewed all of the entries and are excited to announce the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners – all recipients of great Apple products for their efforts!  Mimaki would also like to thank everyone who entered for sharing their inspiring work which remains on display in the showroom.
