When we enter printing awards competitions, we expect to come away with a couple of wins. Our folks are just that good, and it’s simply a standard to which we hold ourselves.
But the 2018 Awards of Excellence from the Printing Industries of New England (PINE) has driven us into uncharted territory. This year, Lane Press received 11 awards, more than we’ve won in a single awards competition. Of these honors, eight are for publications for which we haven’t previously won awards – and one is for a print project being recognized for the third year in a row.

For this competition, a panel of national printing experts evaluated and judged more than 365 printed projects for their quality of print production and difficulty of execution. As always, we are proud to share these honors with the publishers who trust us to produce their excellent publications.
At the recent 2018 PINE Awards of Excellence gala event in Worcester, MA, we were humbled to receive the following honors:
Pinnacle Awards, First Place
Awards of Recognition, Second Place
Awards of Merit, Third Place
