Freeport Press, Inc. is proud to announce it was recently awarded seven 2022 Print Excellence Awards from
Graphic Media Alliance.
Each year, Graphic Media Alliance holds its Print Excellence Awards competition to recognize Ohio, Michigan
and northern Kentucky printers who have demonstrated excellence in 36 categories and two out–of–region
expert judges rank them in a regional competition. This year’s judges were longtime Premier Print Award
judges, Ken Eberhart (retired, Merrick Printing, Louisville, KY), and Jeff Ekstein (Willow Printing Group,
Ontario, Canada), who ranked them in both regional and state–wide competition.
For his first time overseeing the Print Excellence Awards judging, Graphic Media Alliance President, Andrew
Schall, was in awe of the process. “The level of detail in which our judges review each entry is profound; in
many cases, our judges found it challenging to pick a winner. Ken and Jeffs combined expertise spans more
than 75 years in the printing industry. The Print Excellence Awards showcases our finest offerings in Ohio,
Michigan, and N. Kentucky, and this year did not disappoint. As demonstrated in this year‘s contest, our
members continue to innovate, ensuring a bright future for our industry and our Association.”
All of the Gold award winners in the regional competition are entered in an association–wide competition for
Best of Category and Best of Show prizes that will be awarded in August at the 2022 Grand Ceremony
sponsored by Millcraft.
Freeport Press, Inc. won the following awards:
5 Gold Awards
2 Silver Awards
