  arTees Island Designs wins 3rd Straight SGIA Golden Image Award

Hyannis, MA, October, 2004 - When the best screen printers in the world competed in the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association's Golden Image Award this fall, arTees Island Designs, Hyannis, Massachusetts, stood out for the third
straight year, leaving with the Gold Medal Award of Excellence for true process color printing on textiles.

"I am very proud of our master printer and the rest of the arTees team, said Steve Gayner, owner, arTees Island Designs." Our work was compared to the best in the world - and we came out on top for the third year in a row.
That's almost unprecedented when you think of how good the competition is. And, once again, we have demonstrated
our expertise in our specialty area - printing photographs on textiles."

More than 100 companies from around the world entered the competition, submitting over 930 entries in 42 product categories. The competition was conducted during SGIA '04 Convention & Exposition (Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, October 6-9, 2004). "The judges had a very difficult time this year, because of the extremely high overall quality of the work. In virtually every category, the entries were so good that choosing the winners was a real challenge," said one of the judges. The Golden Image is a technical competition, excluding aesthetic issues from the judging process. Prints were judged on the level of difficulty and quality of execution.

"Winning the Gold for true process color printing on textiles puts arTees among the top screen printers in the world in terms of quality and capability. The ability to consistently print such high quality products indicates that arTees is
an expert at controlling the many variables involved in screen-printing. They are true masters of the trade."
