OBH | Print Awards | Lucky 7!

we were delighted to walk away from the 2018 South Australia Printing Industry Craftsmanship Awards (PICA) with a total medal count of seven.

Receiving 1 Gold Highly Commended, 2 Gold, 3 Silver and 1 Bronze during a relaxed ceremony amongst our peers and suppliers at the Hackney Hotel. The Printing Industries Association of Australia (PIAA) CEO, Andrew Macauley and his team presented the awards for all categories.

Details of each award are as follows:

Highly Commended:
GOLD – Ivanhoe Grammar School Yearbook
Ball & Doggett Sponsors Award

Annual Reports or Yearbooks:
GOLD – Ivanhoe Grammar School Yearbook
Awarded for the consistent quality colour printing and range of earthy colours reproduced using four-colour process and enhanced by spot UV varnish and deep embossing “to create an intriguing reproduction of Aboriginal dot art on the front cover.”

Annual Reports or Yearbooks:
SILVER – Donvale Christian College 2020 Vision
A vision in itself, this magazine-style publication, in keeping with the title, cleverly uses die-cutting and printing of solids on the textured linen cover stock to produce a high quality finish. The uncoated text pages printed in four-colour process are sealed with a velvety satin varnish.

Annual Reports or Yearbooks:
 – Good Shepherd Lutheran College Prospectus
For the choice of ink to enhance the design attributes of the publication and the paper selection of a Recycled Board Cover and Laser Text which provides a smooth surface for the four colour process inks, maintaining superior opacity, crisp type and good skin tones throughout.

Leaflets, Flyers or Brochures: SILVER  – Woodstock Wines, The Stocks Society
Awarded for the excellent colours and crisp type using four colour process inks on a premium paper, die cut and folded to complete the “stylish brochure”.

Self Promotion:
SILVER – Hue, Shades of OBH
Acknowledgement that the magazine was produced entirely in-house from photography, video production and design through to print production.

Innovative Reinvention:
GOLD – SA Food Industry Awards Program, Shine A Light
For the enhancement of the graphic element on the cover to enhance the logo and title without other embellishments.

All of the gold awards are now escalated as automatic entries into the National PICA awards to be held in Sydney in June.

We celebrated the significant acknowledgement of our quality with the entire team over morning tea. We are incredibly proud of this result and see it as confirmation of the hard work and dedication of all team members in every department who aspire to get the best results for our clients.
