UMaine Printing Services recognized by national group

The University of Maine Printing Services was recognized by the Association of College and University Printers (ACUP) during the national group’s gala dinner and awards ceremony earlier this month in Cincinnati.

UMaine was one of about a dozen in-plants that were honored for achievements in quality, design, sustainability and distinctive service, according to an article by In-plant Graphics.

UMaine Printing Services was awarded first place in the “Digital Multiple Page” category for its digital print production of a booklet for the Climate Change Institute. The cover features a holographic image and the words “Exploration and Discovery” and “University of Maine Climate Change Institute.”

The 64-page color brochure was a collaborative effort by Printing Services; Betty Lee, assistant director of the Climate Change Institute; and Carol Nichols, senior designer in the Division of Marketing and Communications.

Earlier this year, UMaine Printing Services also achieved G7 Master Qualification awarded by Idealliance, a not-for-profit industry group dedicated to guiding print production best practices, specifications and standards worldwide.
