Caribbean-based publishing house, Toute Bagai Publishing (TBP) and US-based American Printing Company, have for the third consecutive year, won the top prize at the Sappi Annual Printers Awards held recently in New York City.
Sappi Fine Paper North America announced the MACO Caribbean Living Volume 13, Issue 3, produced by TBP, was among 10 gold winners at its 15th Annual North American Printers of the Year awards for 2011-2012.
In addition to winning Gold in the Sheetfed category, Toute Bagai Publishing also took the bronze award for its MACO Caribbean Living Volume 13, Issue 4.
President and Chief Executive Officer of American Printing Company, Robert “Bo” Stanford, said he was delighted American Printing was recognized as one of the Top 10 printers in the country by being named the Gold Award winner for the third year in a row.
“This is a testament to our unwavering commitment to quality and developing strong partnerships with customers such as Toute Bagai Publishing. Winning this award three years in a row – with the same publication – confirms Toute Bagai’s excellent design and photography, American Printing’s commitment to quality, and the extraordinary partnership that has developed over the years,” he said.
TBP’s Managing Director Neysha Soodeen maintained her company’s ability to win consecutive annual awards reflects not only consistency in quality, but also the dedication of her team, along with a network of professionals from the region.
MACO Caribbean Living highlights the Caribbean’s most luxurious and architecturally beautiful homes, villas and resorts, and portrays the diversity of the region through the creativity of cuisine, art, gardens, and travel and tourism.
