The Admark team is celebrating its “best year ever” at the 2019 Pride in Print Awards in Wellington in May.
The company won seven gold medals across various printing disciplines, and was inducted into the new 50 Gold Medals Club.
It also won a Process Award, which represents the “best of the best” in the Inkjet/Sign & Display Print category for a vehicle graphic.
The judges said, “The complexity of this application is very high and the circles are so perfectly matched over a number of different mediums and surfaces – a worthy showcase for this technology.”
Pride in Print also paid tribute to Admark’s recently retired owner and managing director, Laurie Pilling, for his contribution to the New Zealand printing community during his 25 year-plus career.
“I was very humbled and honoured to be recognised at the awards,” Pilling said.
“The print industry has been an exciting and challenging one for me to be involved in, and I am proud to say that New Zealand printers are among the best in the world.
“All of the success I have enjoyed over the years at the various printing competitions has been as a result of the wonderful team we have at Admark, who consistently go above and beyond to provide our clients with technically excellent, award-winning work every day.”
The seven gold medals were for China Girl (Crown Range Cellar) and Flower Boy wine labels (NZ Wine Company), Burger King “Taste of the World” backlit sign, Kapiti Milk & Ice Cream truck (Fonterra), Mobile Dental Clinic (Waitematā DHB), Nature’s Fresh Bread truck (Goodman Fielder) and a Service Foods Garlic truck.
Gallagher also held its Annual Supplier of the Year Awards in May, and Admark received an award for Supreme Customer Service in the “Print Pack & MRO” category.
Lisa Pilling said: “This award is a huge recognition of the effort our team puts in to consistently ensure Gallagher is treated as the highly prized client it is. We are proud to have worked with them for more than 35 years and I’d like to especially thank Sue Sutherland, for her outstanding effort in looking after the Gallagher account.”
