MSU Wins Award
April 16th, 2018
WEST HARTFORD, CT., April 16, 2018 - Marketing Solutions Unlimited, LLC, a print and digital marketing company which started in the founder’s living room in 1991, has been honored by the regional printing trade association.
Printing Industries of New England (PINE) chose Marketing Solutions as winner of a print contest, bestowing its 2018 Pinnacle Award on the company at the association’s annual gala at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, MA, attended by several hundred members.
“We were thrilled to win the 2018 Pinnacle Award for a package of materials that we printed for the iconic Bushnell Center for the Performing Arts in Hartford,” said Heidi Buckley, founder and president of Marketing Solutions Unlimited. “It’s so gratifying to know that as our company continues to look to the future by embracing the digital age, we also maintain excellence in the traditional arena of paper print. Paper is certainly not passé.”
The wining array depicts lush green foliage printed on a soft white background with deep rust-red accents. The materials were printed four color process and won in the “Invitations and Programs” Division II category.
Just two months ago the company purchased the Heidelberg VersaFireCP 110, a cutting edge digital printer that prints up to a 27 x 13 sheet. The new Heidelberg press can quickly print just about any image on just about any surface.
“A number of printing companies throughout the region have closed their doors in recent years, victim to the digital age,” said Buckley. “We’ve made it our mission to take advantage of new digital technology to expand services for a range of corporate, nonprofit, educational and individual customers.”
The company that began nearly thirty years ago now employs 23 people. “We’ve come a long way from the one-person operation I began in my living room,” added Buckley.
