We recently received the results from the annual FPO Awards, and Mama’s Sauce is VERY proud to announce that we have received 13 awards in total; including Best in Category for Silkscreen!
The FPO (For Print Only) Awards are an annual collection of the best in the print world, conducted by the good folks over at UnderConsideration. The judging criteria are right up Mama’s alley, with a 50/50 split emphasis on design and production. This year’s judging roster included five heavy hitters: three designers and two printers. Famed designer Art Chantry, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Design Army, Pum Lefebure, and Pentagram partner DJ Stout represented the Design judges. In-house printmaker at House Industries David Dodde and co-founder & production director at Vertallee Letterpress Brad Murph held it down for the Print side.
So, without further ado, here are Mama’s Sauce 2012-2013 FPO Award winners!
