Pioneer Balloon, Wichita, Kan., received three awards in the “Wide Web” category—a Gold, Silver and Bronze award—for three different foil balloons from the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) at its 2017 Excellence in Flexography Awards at the Hyatt Regency Long Island in Hauppauge, N.Y.
The Excellence in Flexography Awards recognizes exemplary package printing. Awards are judged over a three-day period by a group of flexographic industry experts.
Categories include wide web, mid web, narrow web, combined corrugated, preprinted linerboard, envelope, self-promotion and non-traditional flexography, college student, and high school student.
Out of 481 entries at this year’s awards, only 121 were honored as being noteworthy flexographically printed pieces.
“Flexographic Technical Association is the premier destination for flexography training, articles, events and other resources," the FTA said on its website. "Since 1958, FTA has been providing the means to an end: Enabling flexographers to grow their skills, connect with likeminded individuals, expand their reachable market and drive flexography to package printing dominance.”
