Entries are open for Flint Group’s 14th Annual Print Awards, with its Digital Solutions (Xeikon) sector to be included within the worldwide contest for the first time.
The awards are to be held at Flint’s stand at the Labelexpo Americas show in Chicago on September 26.
The awards are grouped by Flint’s three divisions: Narrow Web, Flexographic and Digital Solutions (Xeikon). Printers are asked to submit samples for narrow web label and packaging applications, with technologies including water-based and UV flexo, UV offset, digital print, UV letterpress, UV screen, and combination printing.
Flint says entries can represent a wide range of applications including flexible packaging such as food packaging and pouches, coupons, shrink, pressure sensitive labels, cartons, yogurt lids, cut and stack, tags and tickets.
Criteria for judging includes: registration, smoothness of dot/vignette, overall print quality, and degree of difficulty. Flint says entries will be placed in categories relating to technology and application.
The company says submissions are judged by a group of internal and external industry professionals, including an industry peer who is not employed by the company, to bring an objective view to the quality of the submissions.
Antoine Fady, CEO of Flint says, “Year on year, we are excited by the creative and inspiring results submitted. As a go-to-advisor for the industry, we offer a product portfolio of products and services covering all major steps of the value chain, that enable our customers to achieve superior results. These awards showcase what is possible and ignite the imagination.”
The awards were first celebrated at Labelexpo Europe in 2004.
