Printcare Plc, Sri Lanka’s leading exporter of packaging, renowned for its innovative printing and packaging solutions, triumphed as the overall winner and ‘Sri Lanka Master Printer 2018’ at the biennial print competition conducted recently by the Sri Lanka Association of Printers to recognise excellence in print.

Consistently ranked among the top export brands serving a prestigious global clientele in FMCG, tea, confectionery, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and apparel industries, Printcare was selected the winner from over 1000 entries in 28 categories and over 60 printing companies in Sri Lanka. Printcare also received seven Gold, four Silver, and two Bronze awards, in addition to the ultimate Master Printer Award, considered an acknowledgement of the best in the country.

The bi-annual mega event dedicated to the country’s print industry includes a conference, exhibition and awards ceremony. The award ceremony marks the grand finale of the event where all members of the printing fraternity gathers to celebrate and honour the industry’s best. The Chief Guest for the gala ‘Collate 2018’ event was Hon. Prime Minister Ranil Wickramasinghe.
