Hamilton printing companies “in the medals” over ANZAC weekend

Hamilton’s Admark Visual Imaging and The Green Frog Sign Company received a haul of medals over ANZAC weekend at the annual NZ Sign & Display Awards.

In total, one gold, two silver and three bronze medals were awarded. The Sign & Display Awards provide recognition of the craftsmanship, technology and material that combine to create really great printing, and further allow businesses to benchmark themselves against the rest of the industry. Clearly, from these results, the ingredients required for excellence in printing are alive and well in Hamilton!

Medals were awarded as follows:

GOLD Admark
Outdoor digital imaging design
Menin Gate graphic

SILVER Green Frog Sign Company

Any sign produced but designed from out of house

Concepts or Themes

Tip Top Ice Cream Pajero

Laurie Pilling, Admark’s Managing Director says, “while winning awards is not in our minds when we are printing work for our clients, it is extremely gratifying to receive them as it demonstrates to our staff and clients that we really are doing a great job. Winning gold for the Menin Gate graphic was particularly meaningful to me as an ex-army man, and to win it on ANZAC weekend was even more special as the graphic was designed to commemorate the amazing recognition of ANZAC soldiers that the citizens of Ypres, Belgium make each evening. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank and congratulate our clients, the Hamilton City Council, NZ Bus and Tip Top Ice Cream. And congratulations also to Dave and his team at The Green Frog Sign Company”.

Dave Mann, Green Frog’s Managing Director says “We strive to be one of the best in our industry and to be recognised with national awards alongside Admark is great for both our staff and clients. Thanks go to Peter Sergel, Hamilton Gardens Curator and to our dedicated staff”.
