Golden Image Winners Shine on the 2016 SGIA Expo Floor

Award winners are honored for superior imaging skills

Las Vegas, Nevada — Today at the 2016 SGIA Expo, the winners of the Golden Image Competition were announced — along with the esteemed “Best of Show” winners, who represent the top tier of the imaging industry.

“The Golden Image award recognizes the highest quality printers who achieve remarkable control and ability,” said Johnny Shell, SGIA’s Vice President of Technical Services. “Only the best in the industry are awarded this prestigious honor.”

The Golden Image Competition recognized the highest standard of imaging and covered almost every item — no matter how complex — in the specialty graphics industry, and awarded Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Honorable Mention ribbons. Among the Gold winners, the best of the best were chosen by members of the Academy of Screen and Digital Printing Technologies and given the highly sought-after “Best of Show” award. Congratulations to the 2016 “Best of Show” winners:
