Have you ever stopped to think about the many ways print, paper and packaging touch your life every single day? Just stop for a moment, close your eyes and think about how many times you have used print, paper and packaging since you have been awake today … Amazing, isn’t it?

This is exactly what Printing SA asked its members to do in celebration of the International Day of Print which took place on Wednesday, 14 October 2015. Print, regardless of the format we engage with it in, touches our lives in a special way every waking moment of every day. Because of this, we tend to forget the role it plays in our lives which is why this day is celebrated annually to encourage individuals to stop for a second to appreciate and celebrate the role of print in their lives.

Printing SA celebrated this day by means of a ‘selfie’ and ‘groupie’ competition with prizes sponsored by Novus Holdings and Printing SA. Members across the printing federation’s chambers received free, limited-offer, branded t-shirts with the request for them to wear the t-shirts on 14 October, take a ‘selfie’ or ‘groupie’ and upload them to a competition page set up on Printing SA’s website which was open for only that specific day. The initiatives’ aim was to rally behind the print industry, and remind it of the integral part it plays in our economy.

True to the resilient and creative nature of the many people whose livelihoods depend on this industry, we received a wide and colourful spectrum of entries via the website entry mechanic. The judging was based on two broad categories: ‘Best Selfies’ and ‘Best Groupies’ resulting in a total number of four prizes, courtesy of Novus Holdings, being awarded to four individuals and three corporate prizes to the top three ‘groupies’ from Printing SA.
