GraphTec, a commercial printing company from Jessup, MD, has earned the “Grand Q” award in the 2010 “Excellence in Print” competition sponsored by the Printing & Graphics Association MidAtlantic (PGAMA) (Columbia, MD). The Grand Q is the highest level of achievement for the regional industry contest.

The award was presented March 24th during the “Excellence in Print Awards Gala” at Martin’s Crosswinds in Greenbelt, MD.  Other high honors received that evening included best work from a small press (Little q), which went to Printing Specialist Corp. of Glen Burnie, MD; and best work from a digital press (the Digital q), which was given to Baltimore Color Plate of Towson, MD.

GraphTec’s winning piece was prepared for Dauses Press using a Komori Lithrone LS640 offset press. It also won the “Best of Category” title in the category of “Catalogs, Company Capabilities.” A team of independent judges selected the entry as the “Best in Show,” designated by the Grand Q award.  

A subsidiary of Consolidated Graphics, GraphTec has been an active member in PGAMA since 2007. The plant operates 24 hours a day, five days per week.
