This year, we were honored when the Great Lakes Graphics Association announced that eDOC Communications was a multiple award winner at the 2016 Graphics Excellence Awards, one of the largest printing competitions in the nation.

The “Ambition” Winter Edition of Field Notes was honored with the highest award, Best of Category. These sets of booklets were unique in that the “Field Notes” logo on each booklet was embossed, saddle stitched with gold staples, and had gold gilding applied along the edges of each individual page, resulting in a beautifully finished piece.
