Winning isn’t everything, but it sure is nice.

Winning isn’t everything, but it sure is nice.

We don’t need to be the biggest printer, but we do want to be the best.

When we’re on press, working hard to get a client what they need, we aren’t thinking about awards that might come our way down the line. But when it’s all delivered and it’s time to submit for awards from the printing industry, we take a minute to be proud of what we’ve accomplished. We compete with printers from not only across the U.S. but also around the World. These awards, given by the Printing Industries of America (PIA), are just a physical symbol of our commitment to innovation, to excellence, and to our clients.

We have been given almost an embarrassment of riches when it comes to these awards. They are handed out at an Annual Awards Gala night and some years we can barely sit down from winning an award before our name is called out again. There is no doubt nights like this feel good, even great. We love to call the client the next day and let them know their piece won an award that they can be proud of too. After all, it is the relationship between the client and CIP that elevates a project to the level of an AIP award winner.

What does it take to win one of these? Hard work. Perseverance. Dedication to excellence. Listening to the client. Knowing the process. Being Creative. Loving the Challenge. All of these are paramount. We have emerged from a startup company in 2006 to a booming, award-winning printer within a few short years,. And our plan is to continue making our clients proud of their decision to choose us as their printing partner.

These Printing Awards were won by Clear Image Printing over the last few years. The awards were given by the Printing Industry Association, Southern California (PIASC) at various ceremonies across the United States.
