Impressions Awards
Postponed
AFTER MUCH CONSIDERATION,
we have decided to postpone the 42nd
Impressions Awards competition.
This was not a decision the editorial
team took lightly, as we love seeing what
apparel decorators submit for the annual
competition and sharing it in the magazine,
in our online Impressions Awards Galleries
and at Impressions Expo events in our booth.
But out of respect for our friends, the
decorators and the scope of the COVID-19
pandemic, we decided it was only appropriate
to postpone the competition until next

year. This will allow all the decorators and
prospective entrants to instead focus their
best efforts on rebuilding their businesses
to be in the best-possible position after
the pandemic ends. By then, our hope is
that they will be busy as customers come
back with much-needed orders.
The Impressions Awards competition will
resume at the Impressions Expo Fort Worth
event in 2021. Look for updates regarding
categories and entry deeadlines here, online
and on our social-media platforms next
spring. - M.D.
