Printer of the Year

Printer of the Year

This award is widely regarded as the world’s most respected achievement in the field of printed communications—and this year it could be yours.

Since 1999, Sappi’s been celebrating exceptional printers like you who relentlessly drive for results. We collect your most impressive print pieces from the past year and evaluate them across a number of categories to determine which is most deserving of our top prize: bragging rights and $20,000 in branding and marketing support. And because we’re equally committed to stretching the boundaries of what’s possible with print, we’ve added two new categories—Packaging and Activated Print—to inspire you to keep pushing the industry into the future.

It’s time to prove your skills in the printing industry. Submit by April 7, 2017, for a chance to cross the finish line first and take home the title of Printer of the Year.
