About the PRINTING United Alliance Premier PRINT Awards

The PRINTING United Alliance Premier PRINT Awards competition is the industry’s most prestigious award of recognition honoring the very best in print communications. The awards recognize excellence in quality, creativity, and innovation. The Premier PRINT Awards competition exemplifies the very best in the printing industry.

The Premier PRINT Awards was born from the convergence of the most advanced awards programs in the printing industry: SGIA’s Golden Image Award, Printing Impressions’ Gold Ink Award, Packaging Impressions’ Excellence Award and the Print Industries of America Benny Award. These awards programs laid the foundation for a single unified award that recognizes the best of the best in graphic communications.

The Premier PRINT Awards is an all-inclusive industry competition that represents all areas and categories of print—screen, offset, digital, wide format, flexographic, letterpress, gravure printing, and embellishments/enhancements—produced by commercial printers, sign/display shops, package printers/converters, in-plants, trade binderies/finishers, graphic designers, and students. This premier event highlights the extraordinary work that is produced in the industry for customers.
