Positive ProgramsApril 2014
One of the more positive programs that packagePRINTING offers is our annual Excellence Awards competition. This contest recognizes top-quality printing applied to packaging components of all types—tags and labels, flexible packaging, folding cartons, and corrugated. Like other printing contests, what makes the Excellence Awards competition such a positive program is the recognition it provides for all those involved. While the focus is on package printers, it also provides recognition to their customers and suppliers.
I’m especially pleased to hear from past winners about the pride felt by the operators who produce the winning entries. Having worked a good number of years in manufacturing, I have a profound appreciation and respect for the people who work on the floor in manufacturing plants. Given an environment in which they are respected and provided the opportunity to contribute, they are typically highly motivated and can contribute much to a company’s success.
With the Excellence Awards contest, package printers have an opportunity to participate in something positive, something that they can share with their customers, employees, and suppliers. Keep an eye out for more information in the coming weeks.
