Thoro Packaging won two awards at the 21st annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition, the industry’s premier showcase for foil stamping, embossing, and other specialty effects. Awards were announced this week at the Milwaukee Intercontinental in Wisconsin.
The competition, which is sponsored by the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA), recognizes creativity and superior execution of designs that reflect positively on the industry as a whole.
Entries are judged on several criteria including design, execution, and level of difficulty. Winning an award is a mark of excellence in the printing field and recognition of superior achievement.
Competing against hundreds of entries from around the country, Thoro earned recognition by winning two Bronze Leaf awards, one for Best Use of Specialty UV Coatings on our Thoro Web Center Card and one in the Self Promotional Category for the Thoro 2013 WestPack Purse.
Since its inception in 1992, the Foil Stamping and Embossing Association has worked towards industry awareness and growth. Now as the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (still the FSEA), the organization continues to strengthen the industry as a whole through education, seminars, statistical surveys, reference tools, ‘green’ initiatives, conventions and technical conferences, trade show exhibition, and advertising.
