Girls Who Print Day is October 2, 2018!
First celebrated in 2012, Girls Who Print Day is an annual event, held on Tuesday of Graph Expo/PRINT each year. The signature theme of Peace. Love. Girls Who Print. reflects the camaraderie of the industry’s largest virtual sorority of women in the print/graphic communications field. Now numbering nearly 10,000 members around the world, GWP Nation continues to promote our love of print, paper, design and communication through networking, blogging and education.
GWP Day is hosted in The Printerverse and BROADCAST LIVE ON FACEBOOK AND YOUTUBE while being celebrated all over the country with parties, posters, videos and more. The annual GWP Leadership Panel, featuring women leaders in the industry, follows the presentation of the Girlie Award each year. Many graphic arts educators around the country stream the panel live to their classes, allowing students to pose the questions online in real time. Videos of past panels can be viewed here.
A major highlight of GWP Day is the awarding of the GIRLIE! On September 12, 2017, the fourth annual Girlie Award was presented to Trish Witkowski of FoldFactory.com during our lunchtime activities, and was a complete surprise to her! Past recipients are Pat McGrew, Cary Sherburne, and Deborah Corn. Watch the look on Trish’s face when she realizes she has been selected as the 2017 Girlie! And yes…the award comes with a Tiara! Many thanks to Morten Reitoft of Inkish.TV for capturing the moment!
Any time you attend Graph Expo, you’re invited to celebrate Girls Who Print Day with us in the Printerverse at noon on Tuesday for a light lunch. For those who cannot attend, we always share photos and videos via social media throughout the day! No matter where you are on GWP Day, you are part of the celebration! The photos you share from your own parties are a big part of what makes GWP Day so special. Be sure and use #GirlsWhoPrint as you post photos on social media.
