GPA Wins in 2015 Gold Ink Awards

GPA is proud to announce that their “Let’s Make Some Noise” campaign won a Pewter award in the 2015 Gold Ink Awards in the Digital Printing, Marketing Collateral category.

Printed on a range of different GPA substrates using a variety of press and finishing technologies, the campaign was created to commemorate GPA’s 75th anniversary and engage GPA customers in a memorable and interactive way.
