About Us


ABS recently received numerous awards from the Great Lakes Graphics Association (GLGA). We won the Best of Category (that’s the highest) in two separate categories for our 2014 ABS Calendar. We also won Best of Division for our Calendar and the Alexian Brothers Annual Report, an Award of Excellence for “The History of J.P. Morgan Chase & Company” book, as well as a Certificate of Merit for the Popular Bank “Loan Madness Returns” postcard.


What we didn’t know was that the ABS Calendar received the BEST OF ILLINOIS award and a RUNNER-UP award for Best of Show, which means we were one of the Top 4 Entries in all of Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin! This was announced at the GLGA Awards Dinner on Tuesday night, where several ABS Associates were there to accept the awards (see photos).


The judges made these comments regarding our 2014 ABS Calendar:


“For 26 years I was a print buyer. This calendar within itself would be a resource relative to the multiple different printing processes. I would have kept it very close to my desk. Fantastic promo!”


“This entry also displayed numerous printing techniques with precision. Spot coating, textured coating, scratch ‘n sniff coating, spot gloss/spot dull UV coating, soft touch coating, combined with good, crisp printing & rich deep black solids pushed this entry past other fine entries. A magnificent print job with many demanding applications.”


At ABS, we know that we have knowledgeable and diligent employees, deep expertise and skills, the highest attention to quality, and an investment in advanced technology; we are extremely proud to have our work recognized as some of the best in the Midwest!


A sincere thank you goes out to all of our ABS employees who played a role in producing these award-winning pieces. Job well done!!
