The announcement was made April 27 during the 2012 PICA Awards Banquet in Concord, North Carolina, with more than 300 industry professionals in attendance. The PICA Awards competition is one of the largest printing contests in the nation. This year, the PICA Awards attracted more than 643 entries from 58 printing companies, along with more than 300 entries from 17 graphic arts high schools and six college graphic arts programs from across the Carolinas.
A panel of out of state judges with extensive experience in printing and print production was brought in to examine the work. Each entry was judged on its own merit in a category with similar printed pieces. The judging criteria included: registration, crossovers, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonal qualities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, finishing, bindery, and overall visual impact.
Watch: The History of Keiger's Logo
The Keiger family has been in the printing industry for 70 years. It started back in 1943 when C. Ira (Pete) Keiger purchased the Indera Mills inplant print shop and renamed it to Old Town Print Shop. The 4thgeneration of family is now working in the business. Keiger Printing has changed its name to Keiger Graphic Communications to better express all of its capabilities. So we thought we'd show you where we came from and how our logo and name have morphed over the past 70 years.

Xerox XMPie® Sports Marketing Case Study:
Season Ticket Booklets for The Winston-Salem Dash
The Winston-Salem Dash minor league baseball team was gearing up in 2010 to move into a newly built, state-of-the-art stadium in North Carolina. Along with the move, the team's owners sought to re-energize the Dash's marketing and game experience to be more fun and personal. One step was hiring Keiger Graphic Communications in 2009 as its official printer. By 2011, Keiger recognized an opportunity to improve the Dash's season ticket booklets, which were printed by another vendor using a relatively standard personalization template, and was awarded season-ticket production for the 2012 season.
Some 322 variables were defined for personalization, covering seat location, game date and time, opponent, a barcode identifying the ticket owner, one of 20 "feature" photos - selected for occasions, such as fireworks night, or randomly - and an advertisement on the back. The new season tickets look better, are easier to read, and include new features that have boosted customer satisfaction. Dash can now track usage and bring in more revenue through special offers and advertisements on the tickets.
