Best Use of Foil/Embossing for Direct Mailer

SunDance was awarded a Silver Leaf in the Best Use of Foil/Embossing for Direct Mailer category for producing Levin Rinke's Direct Mail Die Cut Door Postcard. This oversize, door-shaped direct mailer utilizes innovative patterns and window-shaped die-cuts to attract attention and entice the viewer to “open the door” to learn about the client’s real estate services. 

FSEA Winner - LevinRinke-1


Best Use of Specialty UV Coating

SunDance took home the Silver Leaf for the Best Use of Specialty UV Coating category for Spring Hill College’s “Seek More” Brochure. This eye-catching full-color brochure effectively utilizes spot UV to pinpoint stars in the sky and the beautiful architecture of the building on the front cover. The spot UV adds an extra pop to the cover and marries nicely with the soft touch laminate for a wonderful quality feel that continues throughout the entire brochure.
