PRINTING United Alliance Announces 2020 Product of the Year Award Winners
PRINTING United Alliance, the largest and most comprehensive member-based printing and graphic arts association in the United States, today announces the winners of its annual Product of the Year competition. The award-winning solutions were produced by PRINTING United Alliance member suppliers and are available for sale in 2020. Over 200 entries were submitted across 85 categories. This year, the program features a new dedicated virtual gallery where entries are displayed and can be accessed at: poy.printingunited.com/product-gallery/.
Product of the Year judging was conducted for both output devices and non-output devices. For output devices, a printed target produced a scorecard that determined winners where some categories were determined by just tenths of a point. Non-output categories were scored by a panel of judges, all experts within their respective realm of the printing industry. The diverse group of judges worked to identify the best products, many submitted in highly saturated categories.
In addition to the new virtual awards gallery, a prominent digital badge was developed to indicate winning products. Digital badges include the Product of the Year award logo, embedded data about the award, and link to the manufacturer’s website.
“I’m proud to be part of this competition and to provide the opportunity for manufacturers to compete and showcase their products in this tough time,” says Ray Weiss, Director of Digital Print Programs, PRINTING United Alliance. “The competition was tight in many categories with multiple entries and having the new judging format allowed the cream to rise to the top. Congratulations to all winners!”
