Vanderbilt Printing Services wins awards for excellence in print quality

Vanderbilt University Printing Services continues to lead its peers in the in-house publishing and printing world, recently securing two Silver awards for excellence in print quality in the 2024 In-Print Awards. This competition, a collaborative effort between the In-Plant Printing and Mailing Association and In-Plant Impressions magazine, shines a spotlight on the exceptional work of in-house printing operations across corporate, health care, government and higher education sectors. 

This year’s winning entries included the following projects: 

  • Campus Dining “Let’s Eat” brochure – Designed for Vanderbilt Campus Dining, this engaging publication delivers essential meal plan information to undergraduate students in an attractive and user-friendly format. The publication stands as a testament to how high-quality print materials can enhance communication and student experience. 
  • Sarratt Society notecards – This custom notecard set, featuring a stylized image of the iconic Kirkland Hall, included matching envelopes, custom foil-stamped carrier box and belly band. Produced in collaboration with Development and Alumni Relations, this project is used to support deeper engagement with Sarratt Society donors.
