Continuing our tradition of excellence in the printing and embellishing fields, SunDance was recently honored with two Silver Leaf Awards at the 30th Annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition.
Held every June, the Gold Leaf Awards is an international competition celebrating the best in specialty print embellishments, finishing, and binding techniques, hosted by the Foil and Specialty Effects Association. This year's awards were of special importance, as it was the 30th year the celebration was hosted.
SunDance is pleased to add to our collection of gold, silver, and bronze awards from FSEA. Take a look at this year's award-winning entries below or check out our past award winners here.
You've spent precious time and money building a brand you're proud of. And when it comes to your marketing and packaging, you want to guarantee that you've got a design that will catch the eye of your ideal customer. One of the easiest ways to achieve this is by adding a cool touch to your design with cold foil stamping. We caught up with one of our resident Packaging Experts, Michael Stephens, to answer some of the most frequently asked questions he has come across about Cold Foil Stamping.
Flexible packaging is increasingly about pouch packaging. That’s because flexible pouches can accommodate a wide variety of products, ship them securely, and display them impressively on store shelves. Pouches offer numerous options for interesting shapes, folds, openings, and closures, as well as printing in a full spectrum of colors, including images and text.
SunDance sparkled at the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) 29th Annual Gold Leaf Awards, taking home a silver and a bronze for demonstrating excellence in foil embossing and diecutting. The Gold Leaf Awards is an international competition celebrating the best in print embellishments, finishing and binding.
Holographic foil adds additional value, flair, and movement to your product. Typically, holographic foil can be applied to most surfaces to achieve the look you desire. Creating a holographic foil print is very similar to another product we offer, metallic foil, but includes an additional embossed pattern that refracts the light. A holographic foil piece is fluid and glittering, showing the different colors of the spectrum at every angle you turn your piece. Your pattern can be a custom based on your particular project design, or you can use traditional patterns and styles like stars, hearts, rainbows, stripes, etc.
The Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) has announced the honorees in its 27th Annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition, and we are so proud of the 2 Gold Leaf Awards we received this year:
Best Use of Foil/Embossing: Silver Leaf Award
Best Use of Special Diecut: Silver Leaf Award
The typical awards presentation would have occurred during an in-person conference event however, this year the FSEA released a video awards presentation to honor the winners as a part of the FSEA Online Learning Experience. This year saw entries come in from across the world—including the US, Canada, Denmark and Taiwan. A panel of industry expert judges chose the projects that best demonstrated excellence in foil stamping, specialty coating, laser cutting, embossing, die-cutting and more. The competition also celebrates the ways these specialty finishing techniques add quality, value, security, aesthetic appeal and brand recognition to the print medium.
As always, SunDance is dedicated to delivering high-quality, cutting-edge solutions for each and every one of our clients. We are so proud to be recognized as pioneers in specialty finishing techniques and effects as we continue to create, innovate and bring your most ambitious print projects to life.
