The Sappi Printer of the Year and Canadian Printing Awards Winners Are In

St. Joseph Communications' printing of S/ Magazine, The Sharp Book for Men and the Holt Renfrew Fall Catalogue take top honours.

We’re pleased to share that our Print Group was recognized by the recently announced 2018 Sappi North American Printer of the Year Awards and 2018 Canadian Printing Awards; each program a testament to print excellence and innovation.

In its 20th anniversary edition – and final year of the program – The Sappi Printer of the Year Awards judges against the highest standards for print quality, based on the overall impact of the piece and degree of difficulty.  St. Joseph Communications earned two Silver awards in the Magazines – Web category for  S/ Magazine Spring 2018 and Sharp: The Book for Men Fall/Winter 2017 issue.

Published by Contempo Media, S/ magazine offers refined lifestyle content for Canadian women who appreciate the latest in fashion, beauty, arts, culture, dining, travel, décor and wellness.
The Sharp Book for Men is a bi-monthly glossy magazine published by Contempo Media.
In its 20th anniversary video, Sappi paid tribute to the importance of printers in today’s marketing landscape: “The most creative, well thought-out creative in the world would fail without a responsible printer. You provide the final critical magic to every project.”

The Canadian Printing Awards were also announced in November and we were proud to again be recognized for S/ magazine (Fall/Winter 2017 issue), as well as the Holt Renfrew Fall 2018 Catalogue.
