PINE has announced that Penmor Lithographers of Lewiston, Maine is an award winner in the Association’s New England regional Awards of Excellence Competition.
The announcement was made during a Virtual Awards Show with hundreds of industry professionals in attendance on May 5.

PINE’s Awards of Excellence Competition attracted over 250 entries from over 35 printing and imaging companies across New England competing in a variety of printing
and graphic communications categories such as best annual report, direct mail campaign, labels & packaging, and more. Penmor won 5 Pinnacle Awards (Best of Category)
and 3 Awards of Recognition. A panel of judges with extensive experience in printing and print production, were brought in to examine the wide range of work submitted.
Each entry was judged anonymously on its own merit in a category with similar printed pieces. The judging criteria included: registration, clarity and neatness, sharpness
of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonal qualities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, overall
visual impact and bindery.

“Our judges have a total of 80 years of print production experience and are invited across the country to other PIA associations to judge, so they have seen all levels of print,”
said Christine Hagopian, PINE’s President. “The quality of PINE members' entries can stand up against any others across the country. Our members should be very proud of that.”
