PRINT’s Type & Lettering Awards Are Back!

PRINT’s Typography & Lettering Awards have returned!

Having received so many amazing typeface designs, typographically driven work and handlettered pieces over the last two competitions, we have decided to once again host the Awards for a third year.

What’s the buzz all about? We’ll break it down for you.


  1. The Best in Class winner from each category (see below) will be spotlighted in PRINT magazine.

  2. Winners from each category, including the Best in Class, will be spotlighted in a public gallery on PRINT’s website, which receives over 3 million visits annually.

  3. The galleries will be promoted in PRINT’s design newsletter, which reaches nearly 80,000 subscribers.

  4. All winners will receive a prize pack of design books from PRINT’s official online store, MyDesignShop.com, and a subscription to PRINT magazine.
