Open only to SGIA members, the Golden Image competition honors industry-leading printing in more than 50 categories. This year, judges evaluated 231 entries from 71 companies.

We’ve been conducting the Golden Image competition since 1981, and this year’s entries really stood out,” said SGIA Vice President, Print Technology & Training, Johnny Shell. “Congratulations to all our winners — gold, silver, bronze and the ‘Best Ofs’ and People’s Choice!”
