GBP Wins 2 SGIA Golden Image Awards for Best Prints

Clearwater, FL, November 5, 2015 – GSP, a leading retail services provider, is proud to announce today that it has been honored with five SGIA Golden Image Awards during the annual Specialty Printing and Imaging Technology SGIA Expo in Atlanta.

Two of the five winning entries were produced by Great Big Pictures, the Madison, Wisconsin-based large-format graphics production lab acquired by GSP earlier this year.

After picking up the two gold ribbons and three silver ribbons, GSP Vice President of Operations Elaine Scrima said, “For the third year in a row, GSP wins! I’m honored to represent the outstanding work that our team produces on a daily basis at our three imaging facilities for our retail and foodservice customers.” Scrima was attending the SGIA Expo when the winners were named and is scheduled to be part of an SGIA “graphics production dream team” panel of imaging experts today at 3pm EST.

SGIA’s Golden Image Awards celebrate industry-leading excellence in specialty imaging. Nearly 400 entries in 53 categories were submitted from 87 companies around the world and evaluated today during the SGIA Expo in Atlanta. The Golden Image competition is judged on the technical accomplishments of each entry, excluding aesthetic issues from the evaluation and scoring process. Prints are judged on the level of difficulty and quality of execution.

SGIA’s Vice President of Technical Services Johnny Shell called this year’s competition among “the best they’ve judged” and congratulated GSP, saying, “Winning these awards puts GSP among the top specialty printers in the world in terms of quality and capability. The ability to (do it) consistently… means GSP is an expert at controlling the many variables involved in specialty printing.”
