PEER earns honorsFebruary 1, 2012
LONGMEADOW A brochure for PEER Associates of Longmeadow was recently recognized with an Award of Merit in the 2011 New England Regional Awards of Excellence Competition, presented by the Printing Industries of New England (PINE).
The booklet was designed by Michael Havey of Yasvin Designers in Hancock, N.H., and printed by Howard Printing Inc., in Brattleboro, Vt.
The competition attracted more than 200 entries from 30 printing and imaging companies in New England. Each entry was judged anonymously on its own merit in a category with similarly printed pieces by a panel of non-New England printing experts. The judging criteria focused on technical quality and print execution, including: registration, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings; richness and tonal qualities of color; paper and ink selection; ink coverage, difficulty of printing; effective contrast or softness; and overall visual impact and bindery.
Established in 1887, PINE serves more than 360 printing and graphic communications companies throughout New England. The association is affiliated with the world’s largest graphic arts trade association, Printing Industries of America.
PEER Associates is a small team of evaluators providing customized, highly responsive, utilization-focused Program Evaluation and Educational Research services for organizations nationwide. PEER Associates has offices in Richmond, Vt., Swanzey, N.H., and Longmeadow, Mass.
