FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
PSPRINT ANNOUNCES WINNERS OF CUSTOMER ARTWORK CONTEST
JUNE 1, 2014 – OAKLAND, Calif. – As part of PsPrint's annual Customer Appreciation Month in April, PsPrint, a Deluxe company and leading provider of online printing services, proudly announces the winners of its Customer Artwork Contest.
Customer Appreciation Month is PsPrint's way of demonstrating to customers how much we love them. Every order placed in April was entered into a daily drawing to win one of three $75 Amazon gift cards, plus a monthly drawing with a chance to win a $500 Amazon gift card.
PsPrint also gave customers an opportunity to shine by sharing the inspiring artwork they printed within the past 12 months in PsPrint's Customer Artwork Contest with a grand prize of a $1,000 Amazon gift card and showcase on PsPrint's homepage, as well as a PsPrint Blog post about their work.
"We at PsPrint have a passion for design, and we are very proud of the work our graphic design customers create. We received hundreds of outstanding designs in our Customer Artwork Contest," said Leslie Olsen, Vice President of Marketing for PsPrint. "Our customers are truly talented, and they made it difficult for our judging panel to make their selections."
The winner of the Customer Artwork Contest turned out to be "winners." Artist/graphic designer Zak Wilson and illustrator Samuel Ho are splitting the grand prize of a $1,000 Amazon gift card that they won for their Black Sabbath-inspired poster, which you can see here.
"It was a small-run commemorative poster (for venue, promoter and band) for the Verizon Amphitheater show in Irvine, Calif.," said Wilson. "I sent some posters to [Black Sabbath's production company] after the show, they dug it, and ended up buying it from us. It now represents Black Sabbath's worldwide 2014 tour and has been printed on posters, tickets, shirts and everything in between."
Wilson said that partnering with PsPrint has allowed him to grow his design business.
"PsPrint makes a quality product for a reasonable price and allows one to order small quantities. These three things have been paramount in my creating a large body of work in the concert poster field. It's also allowed me to work with many talented artists, not to mention a wide array of bands because I can take on more projects," said Wilson. "PsPrint provides a quality, flexible alternative to other forms of printing and the posters look great."
PsPrint congratulates all the winners and wishes to thank the hundreds of customers who entered the contest and made it such a great success.
