Copresco Shares AIPX Award with Illinois African-American Family Commission

Copresco has shared an Achievement in Print Excellence Award with the Illinois African-American Family Commission (IAAFC) and the graphic designer of the digitally-printed, four-color annual report.
President and CEO Steve Johnson presented commemorative award plaques from the Printing Industry of Illinois/Indiana Association to Terry Solomon, IAAFC executive director, Joe Gray, deputy director of finance, information & administration, and Lynn Winston, president of Powell Graphics & Communications, Inc.

Powell Graphics & Communications was faced with the problem of producing a short-run annual report that communicates important information with a tight budget-and a mandatory reporting deadline. The best answer was digital color printing by Copresco. The result was the award-winning piece that met all of the client's project criteria.

IAAFC was established in 2004 to assist various Illinois state agencies in improving and expanding existing human services, educational and community development programs for African-Americans. .

Each year, the Chicago-based Commission is required to submit a fiscal year report to the governor of Illinois and members of the Illinois General Assembly. This report focused on the IAAFC's efforts during the year to understand families involved in several systems including child welfare and criminal justice. .

The 8-1/2" x 11" saddle stitched annual report designed by Powell Graphics featured a full color bleed photo on the four-page separate cover. The 24-page body was designed with full bleeds and four-color on each page. Full tint and blend effects were also used on the cover and throughout the inside pages of the report. .

Strict quality requirements for hairline registration on the fold and no cracking created a digital challenge, but added to the overall appeal of the award-winning piece. .

The AIPX program encourages excellence in print communications and recognizes firms that demonstrate the highest quality standards of the printing industry. .

Since the competitive program began in 2003, Copresco has won nine achievement awards, including four Best of Category Pinnacle awards. .

Copresco specializes in digital on-demand printing of publications, books and manuals for clients in the general business, printing trade, technical and institutional fields. The firm is headquartered in Carol Stream, Illinois. .
