Since the inception of the awards in 1978, hundreds of InterTech-awarded technologies have changed print and graphic communications workflows and efficiencies. From software enhancements, to prepress and beyond, there are few areas of the print and graphic communications process that have not been improved by a past InterTech(tm) recipient.
Honorees receive the InterTechTM Lucite Star and recognition among industry peers. Additionally, they are featured in industry publications, news releases, and conference presentations. Due to the shifting nature of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision to hold an awards gala and details regarding the distribution of awards to honorees will be determined at a later date.
