All you have to do is send four of your best print jobs as entries for PrintWeek Awards 2024. You can send multiple entries, which enhances your chances of winning or being shortlisted.”  

In the last edition of the Awards, held on 30 October 2023, 48 Prisms were handed out in 33 categories. There were 11 Performance Awards, 18 Quality Awards and four Special Industry Awards. Mumbai-based TCPL Packaging edged out 12 contenders for the pole position to take home the coveted PrintWeek Printing Company of the Year Prism. Saket Kanoria of TCPL said, “This recognition holds immense significance in the world of print and packaging, and it’s a moment that fills us at TCPL with pride.”

The 13th edition of the PrintWeek Awards, in 2023, received submissions from 100 printing and packaging leaders. More than 700 print and packaging samples were evaluated by 23 Jury members comprising industry experts, brand representatives and print buyers during the Jury Week held on 4-6 October. All print samples were coded and the identity of the company was kept confidential. The Jury members reviewed the entries, discussed their choices with their fellow members and then made the final selections.  

First-time winners and joint winners were the running themes of the evening. This points towards two major industry trends – technology implementation across the board and the proliferation of small, often craft-based businesses and D2C brands, thanks to the rising demand for fast, easily ordered short-run packaging. Plus, more and more companies are adopting in-house skills to boost technical expertise, at the same time, implementing structural changes, adding automation and tweaking the work process.

Highlighting how the industry has collectively proven itself in delivering innovative, eye-catching products, joint winners were declared in 15 categories. Some of them were Most Challenging Project of the Year (Afflatus Gravure and Holostik India); Customer Service Company of the Year (DCD Printers and S Kumar Multiproducts); Green Company of the Year (EPL and Multivista); Export Company of the Year (Brilliant Printers and Quarterfold Printabilities); Innovative Printer of the Year (paper/paperboard / corrugated) (Perfect Packaging and ITC Packaging and Printing Business); Label Printer of the Year (Any Graphics and Kwality Offset); Packaging Converter of the Year (F&B) (ITC and Lipi International); Packaging Converter of the Year (Letra Graphix and Sain Packaging).
