Lone Star Press Takes Home Two PIASC Best of Category Awards

We are excited to announce that on April 7th, 2017 Lone Star Press was awarded two PIASC* Print Excellence Awards for the categories of "Cards" and "Foil Stamping & Embossing/Debossing". The PIASC is a regional trade association for the print industry and hosts this annual event which sees hundreds of entries for different categories. As a recipient of two Best of Category awards our entries will automatically be entered in the PIA** Premier Print Awards which is a national award show hosted later this year. Our winning entry was a beautiful holiday card that printed in CMYK full color, custom die cut and had heavy coverage of silver foil stamping on both sides. A photo of the winning entry is below.

In addition to the two Best of Category awards Lone Star Press also received a Certificate of Merit for an annual report entry.
