Another Northside Graphics double with the Irish Printer Awards

Published by Northside • 9th November 2017

Northside Graphics are delighted to announce two new industry awards shortlists, this time with the Irish Printer Awards.

Irish Printer is the only dedicated print industry publication that covers both Northern and Southern Ireland. Now in their 40th year, the awards celebrate excellence in print quality, innovation and service throughout the industry.
This year Northside Graphics have been shortlisted for two awards for Irish Printer:
Digital Printer of the Year
The judging panel consists of experts and professionals across all fields in the print industry. In the Digital Printer of the Year category they studied jpegs and physical samples of digital print. They considered a number of areas including print quality, the level of difficulty involved, the execution and the finishing of the final job. They also assessed the consistency of print quality, reproduction and finishing.
Large Format Digital Printer of the Year
In the Large Format Digital Printer category, the judges looked for both creativity and quality in the print samples supplied. The difficulty involved, execution of the final job, print quality and finishing are all factors that were also considered before shortlisting.
Judging every aspect of print
The judging panel contains experts from many different fields of the print industry including the creative sector. They look for excellence not just in the overall quality of the finished print, but in specific areas including fineness of detail and screen, the complexity of the print, the inks used, image sharpness, the equipment or technology used, the range of tones and the consistency of the colours. They also look for even the smallest defect in the final print and finishing.
To meet this criteria, Northside Graphics had to prove not only that we use the best quality presses available but also that we have the best systems in place to handle production, checking, workflow and finishing.
