Morgan Printers reels in more awards


Monday, May 29, 2017

For the second consecutive year, Morgan Printers, Inc. of Winterville has reeled in scads of major awards in a two-state printing competition sponsored by the Printing Industry of the Carolinas (PICA).

On May 16, the company honored its clients by hosting an open house celebration at its still-new printing facility in Winterville. Morgan Printers management used the occasion to spotlight the 26 printing entries that won PICA awards in the last two competitions.

“Each of these awards is attached to a very valuable client, and we wanted to thank them for their business by presenting them with replicas of the PICA plaques that are now on permanent display at Morgan Printers,” said CEO Lydia Morgan.

Morgan Printers is family-owned and family-operated and has been for three generations. Jack and Virginia Morgan started the business in 1958. It was purchased in 1996 by Jack Morgan, Jr., and his wife, Lydia Morgan. Their sons Preston and Parker are now key contributors to the operation as well.

The 2016 PICA award winners were announced on April 29 and Morgan Printers was honored to receive 11 plaques, competing in PICA’s Division B (10-20 employees). Morgan Printers had won 15 awards in the 2015 competition.

“We are so proud of what we have accomplished, and it’s a great boost on our resumé to be the most highly decorated PICA printer in eastern North Carolina, regardless of size,” Lydia Morgan said. “We don’t need to be the biggest print shop in the region, just the best.

“We love all that we do here…and that includes everything that makes us a one-stop shop in the printing world. No job is too small and none is too large. Our goal with each printing project is to make our customers shine.

“There’s so much more to it these days than putting ink on paper. In the digital printing age, there is no limit to the types of surfaces upon which you can apply ink, and we’re at the forefront of doing it all.

“The technical know-how is important, but at Morgan Printers it’s all about people serving people. It’s about having a passion to serve.”

A 2016 brochure printed by Morgan Printers for the Pitt Community College VISIONS Career Development and Scholarship Program was a finalist in two PICA “best printing” categories, “so that was quite a treat being among the printing business elite,” Lydia Morgan said.

Three clients of Morgan Printers were recognized for receiving PICA awards in both 2016 and 2015. They are:

• The Eyes on Main Street Festival, an outdoor summer photo exhibit in Wilson.

• Igoe Creative of Greenville, a full-service advertising and marketing agency (formerly known as Faulkner & Associates).

• Vidant Health/Vidant Medical Center of Greenville.

“This listing illustrates the vast and diverse spectrum of people we serve, from nonprofit organizations and ECU to agencies and major employers,” Lydia Morgan said.

“We’re excited to go to work each and every day, going about our business of building relationships with our clients and to ensure complete satisfaction. Each job is a new opportunity to excel.”

The PICA organization was formed in 1931 to advance the printing and imaging industries in North Carolina and South Carolina. PICA provides training, resources and a voice of advocacy on both the state and national levels.
