The print quality of The Gisborne Herald colour supplement Discover has earned the newspaper’s press room staff a gold medal in the 25th Pride in Print Awards.

The Gisborne Herald press room team were awarded gold for their work in the web coldset category.

Coldset web offset printing is a process in which ink is allowed to dry naturally through evaporation and absorption as a continuous roll of paper is fed through a printing press.

The team is particularly pleased to have won the accolade on the 25th anniversary of the print awards, says press room manager Nick Scanlan.

“I’d like to credit the staff on doing a good job in keeping up a high standard.”

They have maintained the high standard set by former press room manager Robert Thompson, who has since retired.

Among previous Pride in Print awards won by The Gisborne Herald team are 2013 and 2015 golds, which were also in the web coldset category.

The aim of the awards is to celebrate print excellence and to encourage the industry to “constantly push boundaries”.

Print award categories include digital, inkjet, screen and web coldset.

Judging in the web coldset category is based on technical excellence in all facets of the production process, as well as the degree of difficulty in production in the entry.
