Briggs and Stratton Graphic Services earns Best of Show at In-Print Competition

Ability to match backgrounds to perfection places in higher category

Menomonee Falls, WI (July 27, 2009) - Briggs & Stratton Graphic Services earned the title of Best of Show for the Circle of Life Catalog in the 2009 In-Print competition, sponsored by IPMA and In-Plant Graphics magazine. The catalog was selected for top honors from the 34 Gold Award winners in this year's competition.

"I was so surprised when we received this honor," said Briggs & Stratton Graphic Services Manager Debbie Pavletich. “There were many outstanding pieces in this year's competition. I am very proud of our production team."

“There’s a lot more credibility...once you get an award like this,” says Press Room Supervisor Brian Patterson.
The 120 page perfect bound catalog was produced for SHARP Literacy Inc., a client of Randy Will, Sales Account Manager for Graphic Services. The file was provided by the customer but required scanning of all of the artwork and color correcting images.
SHARP Literacy Inc. is dedicated to teaching students to read and write effectively and build their vocabularies through the use of visual arts and art history. The intent of the publication is to eliminate racism by helping children better understand their heritage and the varied cultures that make up the Milwaukee community. The book features personal stories written by children about their cultural heritage and their family history. It is illustrated with their drawings and photos of bead collages and murals they had created.

In addition to Best of Show, Graphic Services received a Gold Award for the Briggs & Stratton Vanguard™ Club Car brochure and a Silver Award for the Mader Communications Group Adding Value promotion card.
