LAS VEGAS, NV (August 26, 2014) — Creel Printing has once again been recognized for printing excellence, bringing home 11 Gold Ink Awards — its most ever. As one of the competition’s most awarded firms, Creel dominated the “Consumer Magazine” category, capturing seven honors, including the Gold.
Creel’s winning entries span high-end fashion and entertainment magazines, event programs, magazine covers, and softcover books. Each honor was achieved on behalf of longtime customers for whom Creel provides a host of services across printing, publishing solutions, and supply chain support. Creel also won a Gold in “Magazine Covers” with V87 Magazine’s printed plastic overlay cover, collaboratively produced with Deux-Points.
