The Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA – Topeka, Kansas) is inviting companies in the finishing, printing, folding-carton, greeting-card and binding industries to submit their best work to its 27th Annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition. “The print finishing industry is performing spectacular work each and every day on greeting cards, presentation folders, labels, invitations, folding cartons, packaging boxes and much more,” said FSEA Executive Director Jeff Peterson. “The FSEA Gold Leaf Awards program grows every year as entries are submitted from around the world by finishers and binders that want to compete against the best in the industry.” Entry deadline is Monday, March 2, 2020.
New technologies have also fueled growth, with expanded award categories in areas such as digital foil and specialty UV coatings. Entries will be judged on design, execution and level of difficulty in more than 25 categories – with a Gold, Silver and Bronze Award presented in each category. A “Best of Show” award will be selected from among all of the Gold Award winners. All winning companies will be announced, with their winning entry displayed, at an awards reception during the 2020 FSEA·IADD Joint Conference, to be held April 27-29 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Competition winners also will be highlighted in promotional campaigns, PostPress Magazine and other trade publications, on the FSEA website and at industry events throughout 2020.
