The Association for Print Technologies (APTech℠), formerly NPES, and Two Sides North America, co-sponsors of the annual Positively Print recognition program, announce the award program is now open for nominations. In its ninth year, the Positively Print program is designed to recognize print advocacy campaigns that promote the enduring power and sustainability of print in today’s multi-channel media mix.
