Print Advocacy Program Recognizes the Power and Sustainability of Print in the Media Mix


Reston, VA - The Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC) welcomes Two Sides North America as a co-sponsor of the annual Positively Print recognition program.  In its sixth year, the Positively Print program is designed to recognize print advocacy campaigns that promote the enduring power and sustainability of print in today's multi-channel media mix.

"Two Sides is pleased to co-sponsor the Positively Print program as it so effectively aligns with our organization's focus on the unique attributes, effectiveness and sustainability of print and paper," states Phil Riebel, President, Two Sides North America, Inc.

Intended to spotlight the variety of ways in which the effectiveness and sustainability of print are being promoted, the 2015 Positively Print awardee will be recognized at the EXECUTIVE OUTLOOK Conference on Sunday, September 13-opening day of GRAPH EXPO 15-the year's most innovative and comprehensive graphic communications exhibition and conference in the Americas. The "Transform" themed GRAPH EXPO 15 will take place with co-located CPP EXPO, September 13 - 15, 2015, in Chicago's McCormick Place.  

"The Positively Print program was created to acknowledge creative and effective print advocacy campaigns with the entire graphic communications industry," said Ralph Nappi, President of GASC.  "This year, together with Two Sides North America, we want to demonstrate to companies involved in print that advocating for print can be done, and it helps to carry a powerful message that benefits the entire industry."

The 2015 Positively Print program is now open for submissions.  This year's awardee will join a highly creative lineup of recent past winners that includes: IKEA's "Bookbook" Campaign (2014); Sappi Fine Paper's "PRINT &" Book (2013); and, PrintCity's-"PRINT! Seen! Lean and Green" campaign (2012).
