Screen Printing congratulates the six winners of the inaugural Rising Stars Awards, which shines a light on emerging talent who have become proven leaders in the specialty graphics industry. The honorees – all of whom are 35 or younger and work for printing companies – were chosen based on their professional accomplishments, fresh thinking, contributions toward industry advancement, commitment to excellence, and impact on their organizations. 

Bucking the mostly unfounded – and generally unkind – stereotypes about millennials, these six young go-getters prove that success isn’t reserved only for those who have been in the specialty printing industry for decades. These award winners carved a path for themselves with fierce determination to master their chosen craft and dedication to continually build and improve on the work they are doing.   

Nominators highlighted their candidates’ experience, philanthropy, vision, and drive. The chosen winners – selected by the Screen Printing editorial staff from a pool of impressive contenders – share an enthusiasm for the world of print and an eagerness to push the boundaries beyond the status quo. These pages showcase just some of the incredible qualities that make these six industry members award worthy.
