Flint Group was announced as the winners of the 10th Annual Narrow Web Print Awards that were presented at awards ceremony at Labelexpo Americas 2014 in Chicago, Illinois. Not only was it the 10th annual print awards, it was also the 25th anniversary of Flint Group exhibiting at Labelexpo; both very exciting milestones. 

Several countries participated in 2014, including the United States, Canada, Brazil, Germany, and Russia. Entries consisted of a large collection of technologies: UV screen, UV Offset, UV flexo, water-based flexo, specialty inks, and coatings. This year, Flint Group introduced a special category for web packaging applications; encouraging printers to exhibit the unique applications possible using narrow/mid web presses.

 “The Print Awards continue to be a fantastic tribute to the entrepreneurial spirit and creativity our global customers demonstrate as they submit the most creative use of colour, design, and materials in narrow web label printing,” said Niklas Olsson, Flint Group Narrow Web Global Brand Manager. 

Mr Olsson continued: “It is truly an honor to see the print quality submitted by our customers. Each year we look forward to the judging; it is amazing to see the quality and stunning effects converters around the world create when using the inks we supply them. Quite a number of entries contained multiple print methods used in combination and thus creating very eye catching effects. It’s encouraging to see the sophistication and excellence in every detail in their printing – truly pushing the bar in cutting edge designs and application of inks.”

 Awards were presented in 12 different categories – all print submissions using inks, coatings and specialty products supplied by Flint Group Narrow Web.  In addition, several of the winners also used plates and plate material supplied by Flint Group Flexographic Products.
