Victorian printer Purple Press, owned by Cliff Royle, is going into liquidation with further details of what is happening to its staff or equipment being unclear.
The company based in Carrum Downs, Melbourne, was resolved to be wound up.
Purple took out the first National Specialised Print Award from Konica Minolta last year, winning an advertising package valued at $10,000.
ProPrint was unable to reach Royle, and has contacted liquidator AMB Insolvency.
Purple Press specialised in personalised presentation products.
Royle also held a number of graphic arts patents, along with being managing director of binding specialist business RoyleBind.
