Narrow Web Print Awards planned by Flint Group for Labelexpo Americas

March 8, 2010

A new award will be presented this year for products printed using Flint’s Flexocure Force inks.

Flint Group will present the 6th Annual Narrow Web Print Awards at Labelexpo Americas in Chicago this year, celebrating excellence and entrepreneurship in narrow web printing. Label converters from all over the world who use Flint’s inks are invited to submit labels of their choosing for evaluation by a panel of industry judges. Criteria for judging includes registration, smoothness of dot/vignette, overall print quality, and degree of difficulty. Entries will be placed in categories relating to technology and application.

This year a new award will be given. The Force Award is dedicated to companies whose entries are printed using Flint’s new Flexocure Force inks. “We want to reward entrepreneurs using Flexocure Force in narrow web by introducing this special category,” says Niklas Olsson, brand manager for Flint Group Packaging & Narrow. “Flexocure Force is a universal product with unique features that pushes the boundaries in UV Flexo printing, and we want to celebrate the creativity and printability this technology provides.”

The 2010 award winners will be announced at the Narrow Web Print Award Ceremony at the Flint Group booth (840) at Labelexo Americas on Thursday, September 16.
