Established in 1993 with the goal to promote excellence in print in New Zealand, the Pride In Print Awards have been a pinnacle of recognition year after year for the best in visual print communication products produced in New Zealand. They embody a culture of excellence aimed at meeting and exceeding the needs of the customer and continuously pushing boundaries.
It is in the commercial marketplace where Pride In Print delivers its greatest tangible reward. Each sector of the industry is covered, with expert panels of judges analysing every entry. Judging is based on technical excellence in all facets of the production process, typography and good design, allowing specialists to make judgements based on the potential and the limits of processes, and the materials and equipment used.
This year a new category was introduced to the Awards programme – The Business Awards. These awards are intended to highlight the businesses that are driving the future of the industry.
There are three categories – Sustainability, Wellness & Innovation, each of which are an important factor in the success of a business and the evolution of the industry, ensuring that print continues to have a great story to tell.
On 25th June, a contingent of Kale Print representatives attended the 2021 Pride in Print awards. A welcome celebration after the 2020 awards night was cancelled due to Covid restrictions.
The team were honoured to be recognised amongst their peers as leaders in their field, displaying excellence in a variety of categories including the new Business Award Innovation category for their reception chairs and a prestigious overall category win for Promotional Print with the Wealleans 2021 Calendar.
