XeroxToppan Printing wins Xerox Best of Show award : Xerox Corporation has presented Toppan Printing Company America Inc. and graphic design student Monica Eun-Kyung Yoon with the “Best of Show” honor in the annual Printing Innovation with Xerox Imaging Awards. The multinational competition recognizes innovation and excellence in digital printing applications. Toppan Printing Company America, a commercial printing company, and Yoon won for their “Fear” submission, a digitally printed book about various subjects that people fear, such as the future, loss and being judged. This year’s PIXI Awards competition received more than 300 entries, the largest number in the competition’s five-year history.

Entries were submitted from the United States, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru and Venezuela. Yoon, a student from the New York City-based Parsons The New School of Design, worked with Toppan to produce her senior thesis. The book was printed on the Xerox iGen3 Digital Production Press with a Xerox FreeFlow DocuSP print server using Adobe InDesign software. The book particularly showcases the press’ ability to create detailed work with rich blacks. “Graphic design students are embracing digital technology,” said Gavin Smith, director of digital services, Toppan Printing Company America, located in Somerset, N.J. “Through the display of Yoon’s portfolio and word of mouth, other student designers are requesting that their work be printed digitally on the Xerox iGen3 press.”

PIXI award - Xerox supplies
First, second and third place awards were presented in four categories: variable print/one-to-one marketing communications, monochrome and highlight color documents, short-run digital color documents, and digital books and manuals. Awards were presented to the print provider, creative agency and client to reinforce the importance of partnerships in the creation of digitally printed materials. A PIXI Award was also presented for the best use of Xerox supplies. “Digital is leading the way, and this contest brings creative ideas amazingly to life,” said Valerie Blauvelt, vice president of marketing, Xerox Production Systems Group. “Every day our customers discover the power of digital technology to produce one-of-a-kind catalogs, books, direct-mail pieces and other applications that were unrealistic with traditional presses.”
