Queensland Complete Printing Services of Nambour not only won the same award in its category (11 to 30 employees) but also won the Judges Choice for technical excellence. The Sticker Company, Harvey Bay, took out the final Queensland Government Business Excellence & Innovation Award (up to 10 employees).

“It was a great night with almost 600 people there, a good spread across the industry,” said Neal McLary, Queensland manager Printing Industries. “We lost a few to the Ashes, but not too many. Entries were up this year with the digital categories fiercely competed for. Litho was also good, although screen printing was a little disappointing.”

Highlight of the night were the business awards, now in their second year. These are judged on the whole of business performance, including such parameters as financial results, management policies, succession planning and infrastructure. There were also the traditional quality printing awards where everyone gets to have a go.

“The awards are very well supported and the night itself is pretty much an end of year party for the industry here,” said McLary.

Stand out winner on the night, Platypus Graphics, picked up a total of 26 print quality awards including seven gold as well as winning the business excellence award.
