Labels Awards Evening

FlexoTech International Labels Awards Winner

As you may know we entered one of our favourite range of labels into this year’s prestigious FlexoTech International Print & Innovation Awards – and guess what… we did it! We had been shortlisted in the ‘Best use of flexo within a single forme’ category and were delighted to be named the winner at a black-tie awards ceremony and dinner at the Hilton London Metropole on the 13th October.

It was a great honour to win this award for a range of labels we produced for food manufacturer, Pureety’s, Ultimate Marinade Glaze product. The labels were printed on our 7 colour press in 4 colour process and were then given an overall matt varnish, and finally a spot gloss UV, to give a really striking effect,’ said Stephen Tew

The FlexoTech judges agreed, describing the winning label range as ‘One of the best examples of the use of flexo in printing a complex set of designs from the four colour set, with registration and vibrancy being maintained throughout.’

Stephen Tew, Stephen Bates, Catherine Tew and Matt Seaford attended the event hosted by Whitmar Publications, this was a truly international evening, with around 450 people in attendance from leading labelling manufacturers around the globe. And whilst the companies themselves might not be household names, many of the nominated products certainly were, with ranges from top brands such as Asda, L’Oreal, Sharwood’s, Dettol and Coca-Cola all up for Flexo-Tech awards.

We are now looking forward to entering into next year’s awards – thank you to everyone for all your support.
