Inc. 500 Powerhouse Receives Universally Recognized Symbol for Print Perfection
HOUSTON (August 28, 2012) — BrightBox Brand Marketing, generally recognized for its powerful, comprehensive marketing performance, took home top honors by winning the Best Of Category Award for Print/Graphic Arts Self-Promotion in the Print Industry of America’s 2012 Premier Print Awards. The firm also received a Certificate of Merit in the Novelty Books category. BrightBox is the only Best Of Category Award winner in Houston, Texas.
“This award speaks to the strength of our team and the versatility of our company,” said BrightBox Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer Patrick McDonough. “There is no higher print honor than a Premier Print Award. This is a real testament to the perfection we strive to bring our clients every day.”
The Premier Print Awards are the most prestigious international print competition. Thousands of firms and printers from around the world enter each year, all of them hoping for the chance to take home the distinguished honor of Best Of Category – the Benny statue. The Benny has become a universally recognized symbol for excellence in the printing industry. To come out on top, an entry must display perfection from design to completion, embodying end-to-end flawlessness in print production. The judges honor this standard to such an extent that a winner is not declared in every category.
BrightBox secured the awards for its Houston First Corporation Brand Analysis Presentation. In a twist on printed media, the firm used actual printing plates as the book covers. The plate emulsion begins as a deep green, similar to BrightBox’s brand colors, and develops a patina over time – going from green to a golden brown shade. Its corners were rounded and it was bound with silver wire. The presentation’s strong look made it an instant contender and their first time entry won one of the highest awards in the printing industry. The print process is fragile in that a piece can become marred at any particular step. From design to ink coverage to binding, an error-free print piece must undergo the print process under the watchful and diligent eye of professionals with extraordinary attention and focus. As BrightBox’s certificate for the award states, the brand received the recognition for “demonstrating a unique ability to create visual masterpieces.
