North America W&S starts award season with a bang
FTA AwardsThe 2020 awards season has kicked off with some impressive wins from the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA). The FTA is always a challenging and proud competition to win, as each entry must be submitted as four entire continuous press repeats. The judges thoroughly critique the entered press sheets and compare for accuracy and consistency.
Judges impressedMCC Mason stole the show, winning a gold in the Narrow Web/Line/Metallized Paper category for the Crown Royal Heroes Blend. Printed on a Gallus RCS430 in Mason, the judges commented “We were impressed with the lay and overall print and pop. The gold areas look great and the piece has good register. And a great job with the purple overlays.”
Additional winnersMCC Napa also picked up two golds in the competition. Crucible won in the Narrow Web/Screen/ Metallized Paper category, printed on a Gallus EM280, and Freakshow Chardonnay took the honor in the Narrow Web/ Process/Coated Paper category, printed on a Gallus EM510S.Congrats to the entire Mason and Napa teams for a stellar job!
