who’s honoring me now?

October 29th, 2008

How is genius recognized? How do we measure the immeasurable contributions to society? That question was answered when my Robot/ALERT mailer took a statue at the 2008 Printimage Excellence Awards, which I think is totally like the Oscars of print award shows. In fact, I think they should call it the “Printys” or something with an “e” sound at the end.

Anyway, the award was actually presented to the shop that printed it, The MPX Group. They won 2nd place in the category of Foil Stamping, Die Cutting, Embossing. OK, its not like Best Picture, but its at least Best Supporting Actor. And it would be during the televised broadcast, not the crappy, token taped portion, and maybe presented by somebody like Paul Giamatti.

The mailer in question

OK fine. You’re on to me. The Paul Giamatti of print awards had really nothing to do with my efforts, it just happened to be my piece. You just couldn’t let me have this one, could you. Next thing you’re gonna tell me is that 2nd place in the 6th grade Geography Competition at Elm Creek Elementary was really more Rand McNally’s prize than mine.
