TOPIC: 2016 PrintROCKS! AWARDS SHOWCASE
By Jules VanSant, PPI Executive Director, and PrintROCKS! judges
The EUGIDUG is happy to welcome Jules VanSant and the judges for the PPI Association 2016 PrintRocks! Awards, to showcase the winners in this competition celebrating the design and production of extraordinary printed pieces produced in the West. Jules and her team will bring winning pieces to display, so you can take a close up look and ask questions. They'll explain why the judges selected the winners in their categories, what they are looking for in a winning design (use of materials, difficulty, pre through post press, etc) and how they were designed, manufactured, and printed. Come and get inspired!
Several GREAT prizes for books, magazine subscriptions, and software will be awarded.
