Small and large printers alike, from large format displays to the smallest labels, books, magazines and packaging, bring us color and originality! The Gutenberg Contest is not only for Montreal and the surrounding areas, nor only for the big players in the industry. The challenges are real, regardless of geographic location or company size!
Here are the 14 categories of the Gutenberg 2024 Competition:
Remember that the categories (except for the 100% digital category) do not take into account the printing process. You can therefore submit pieces in the same category that have been produced using offset, digital, silkscreen, inkjet, flexo, finishing, etc., or combinations of different processes. Pieces will be judged according to the final result.
