The Graphics Excellence Awards competition is an annual event that recognizes companies throughout Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin for superb craftsmanship in the design, creation and production of top-quality printed material produced for their customers. This year’s competition was judged over two days with a panel of outside graphics experts who brought more than 60 years of collective print, finishing and converting experience to their evaluation. As one of the largest regional graphic competitions in North America, GEA had more than 800 submissions representing 64 companies.

“We’re honored to see several of our finished labels awarded by GEA,” shared Jackie Kuehlmann, Director of Marketing at Inland. “We take great pride in collaborating with our customers and showcasing their brands with quality label printing.”

The award-winning companies are honored each year at the GEA Celebrations, hosted by the Great Lakes Graphics Association. This year’s dual event will be held May 18th, at the Medinah Shrine Center in Addison, IL, and the Wisconsin Club in Milwaukee, WI.
