Mimaki Announces Contest Winners


Wide-format printer manufacturer Mimaki USA, Suwanee, Ga., announces the winners of its My Mimaki contest. The contest was held with the goal of uncovering fresh designs from Mimaki end-users to display in the company's newly remodeled headquarters showroom in Suwanee, Ga.

Mimaki challenged print professionals and shops from around the U.S. to submit their most innovative and outstanding print projects produced on their Mimaki printers.

“The number of entrants and the quality of their work exceeded our expectations,” says Paul McGovern, marketing and promotions manager at Mimaki USA.  McGovern also noted, “Our winners were chosen for their original design and execution, which exhibited a level of creativity consistent with an industry that is constantly looking for new ways to push the envelope.”

A Mimaki panel reviewed all of the entries and are excited to announce the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners—all recipients of great Apple products, including a MacBook Pro for their efforts. Mimaki would also like to thank everyone who entered for sharing their inspiring work which remains on display in the showroom.

First Place went to Nathan Sellers, of A Better Sign, Snellville, Ga, for his project "One of a kind Arcade Controller."

Second Place went to John Sellers of A Better Sign, Snellville, Ga, for his project "Zelda Dog Tags with Treasure Chest;" and Third Place went to Ivan Calderon, of Kaleidoscope New York in New York City for his project "Starbucks Packaging. "
