Awards were presented in thirteen categories, recognizing individuals, companies and promotional campaigns. The CPPA honors those that have distinguished themselves in their profession while making an impact on their business and the industry at-large.

Ironmark won the award for 'Suds and Swag', a unique event that brought together twenty vendors and several hundred invited guests. It doubled as a vintage Oktoberfest-style beer tasting and corporate gift show, as October is the perfect time for companies to think about corporate holiday gift giving.

The event, which took place in October 2017, transformed Ironmark’s print production area into a bustling trade show floor. Visitors browsed through a highly-curated selection of corporate gift vendors, while sampling tavern fare and sipping local microbrew samples provided by Oliver Brewing Company.

“It is an honor to be recognized for creativity and innovation in the promotional products field,” Ironmark CEO Jeff Ostenso said. “We are fortunate to have a team of experts on staff that possess qualities and passion for the field and to be recognized for the award-winning work they do for Ironmark clients.”
