Alfred State College’s Print and Mail Services Office recently took home a pair of awards from the In-Plant Printing and Mail Association’s annual In-Print contest.
Specifically, the office earned a silver award for its entry of personalized Viewbook covers, and a bronze medal award for a domed name badge. Altogether, only 73 gold, silver, and bronze awards were selected from nearly 400 entries from print shops all around the country.
The In-Print contest is the only competition that is exclusively for in-plants from all industry segments, and is sponsored by the In-Plant Printing and Mail Association (IPMA) and In-Plant Impressions. Categories range from catalogs, to flyers, to calendars, to special projects, and more.
Catherine Chambers, director of Print and Mail Services, said, “These awards are notable because we competed against much larger in-plant printers such as Excellus Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Kohler Company, University of Oklahoma, University of Texas, and the University of Virginia to name a few. We know we produce high-quality work; it is gratifying to see our work recognized by other printers in the in-plant industry. Alfred State is fortunate to have highly-skilled creative and technical staff who made these awards possible.”
Alfred State’s award-winning Print and Mail Services Office produces a wide variety of projects for both on-campus and off-campus clients, ensuring top-quality services overall. The mission of the office is to meet its clients’ printing, word processing, and mailing needs in a timely and efficient manner.
According to IPMA’s website, the Association was created in 1964 to provide a forum for the advancement of in-plant management through education. IPMA now has 700 members, including those not only involved in printing, publishing, and graphic design, but also mailing, fulfillment, and distribution from all industry segments, including colleges, universities, associations, hospitals, and more.
