Thailand printers win big at 2019 Asian Print Awards

The 2019 Asian Print Awards recently took place in Bangkok, Thailand in the days of Pack Print International, with many Asian companies winning for their creative solutions.

Awards were handed out for gold, silver and bronze winners across a number of categories.

Overall, companies from Thailand shone at the awards, picking up the most number of wins. Thailand printers took home 31 awards across gold, silver and bronze, marking the country with the highest number of wins.

But when comparing companies, Pragati Offset from India took home the most number of awards across all three segments – it took home six awards – while Pragati Pack was awarded two wins.

Asian Print Awards 2019 chairman Paul J Callaghan compared the printed work submitted to a Formula 1 car.

“It’s the best they have and they feel it can win the race, in our case, the awards,” he said.

“This work goes head to head with other work from around the region… the awards is where all the hard work – from the job order being won through to production to delivery to the client – becomes well worth the effort.

“We need to be recognised for this and the Asian Print Awards provides this platform.”

According to Callaghan, since 2001, when the Asian Print Awards was started, the focus was on improving print quality by way of awarding companies gold, silver and bronze for excellence in print production in Asia.

“This goal was achieved several years ago and together with the judges and sponsors, along with the new levels of technology introduced into the industry, the quality level rose year on year,” he said.

“Today, Asia produces some of the world’s best print work you can find for local consumption and export. We produce work that is second to none, and in most cases, much cheaper.”
