Clearwater, Fla., October 12, 2017 – GSP, a leading provider of retail services, picked up “People’s Choice” at the Golden Image Awards from the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Expo, the largest printing trade show in North America. In total, GSP received eight awards for industry-leading excellence. The other awards included one gold ribbon, three silver ribbons and three honorable mentions for its artwork.

“You’ve won another Golden Image Award!” said SGIA VP Johnny Shell. “You should be very proud of this accomplishment!”

“Our work was compared to the best in the world and, once again, GSP comes out on top,” said Elaine Scrima, GSP’s VP of Operations, who was on hand for the event. “I’m proud of our teams in Madison, Clearwater and Provo, who bring this same attention to detail and quality to work every day for our clients,” she added. Elaine was there to honor Women In Print at the WIP Alliance breakfast and was also on an afternoon panel discussion of print experts.

Our Brand Story

GSP started as a printing company in1978. We found our niche supplying in-store signage for convenience stores when retailers guessed quantities they needed. This led to overage, waste and expense. To solve this, we developed software to guarantee on-time delivery of “the right size sign, to the right store, every time.”

In 2014, we started AccuStore with a dedicated team. As software helped drive our growth, we realized that new printing and fulfillment sites near customers could drive business and improve sustainability. We acquired companies that fit GSP’s technical excellence and superior customer service models.

First was Great Big Pictures in Madison, WI in 2015. They lead the field in large format printing and visual merchandising for iconic fashion retailers. Their standards for customer service include award-winning sustainability programs, and expertise to bolster retail environments services.

In 2020, GSP acquired Custom Color in Lenexa, KS. The company supplies printed graphics to leading retailers. Custom Color’s stellar quality in fabric printing also aligns with GSP’s values.
