Gold Ink Award Winners Honored during Graph ExpoThis year's Gold Ink Award winners were chosen from nearly 1,600 entries submitted in 40 categories. Winning pieces were chosen for their print quality, quality of color separations, technical difficulty, and overall visual effect. Winners will be honored at the Gold Ink Awards and of Fame Banquet on October 11, 2004, during Graph Expo and Converting Expo in Chicago.
One gold, one silver, and one bronze are awarded in each category. The number of pewter awards, or honorable mentions, varies from category to category.
