Mechanicsburg, PA – 6/6/13 – Fry Communications repeated as a Gold Award winner and also won a Silver Award in Sappi’s North American Printers of the Year 2013 competition, sponsored by Sappi Fine Papers. Fry’s own WOW! Factory Sample Book took gold in the “Printer’s Own Promotion” category, while outstanding production of Ducks Unlimited (Sept/Oct 2012 issue), published by Ducks Unlimited, Inc., merited silver in the “Magazines – Web” category.

“Being a repeat gold winner is a spectacular honor, especially for one of our own promotional pieces. To win two awards on the heels of winning an International Printer of the Year Award in 2012 drives home the amazing craftsmanship of our employees. Yes, we’ve made investments in technology and services but these back to back honors really speak to their training and dedication,” said Henry Fry, Chairman of the Board.

We are very pleased and proud to receive the Gold Award for this piece.”

"It’s truly an honor to be recognized as one of the best printers in North America,” said Kevin Quinn, Director of Sales. “We have an excellent, longstanding partnership with Ducks, and we are thrilled to share this honor with them.”
