„From sharp images and tight registration to consistent repeats and proof-to-print matching – award recipients have proved the importance of attention to detail and unparalleled execution,” the FTA said in announcing a total of 121 awards April 30 at its annual awards banquet in Phoenix, Ariz.

The awards recognize the „extra sweat spilled by the men and women on the shop floor or in the premedia department does not go unnoticed,” the FTA explained.

The prepress and plates for six of the winning entries were produced by ProAmpac’s in-house Graphics Departments at the Wrightstown, WI facility. „Having the prepress and plate capabilities allows for constant collaboration between the press and graphics departments, which helps us achieve the highest quality print for our customers. We are honored to receive these high-level awards”, agreed Caryn Kuehl, ProAmpac’s prepress workflow supervisor and Bob Fiala, printing process engineer for ProAmpac.

„This recognition highlights our expertise and commitment to make our packaging better and visually brighter,” said Rita Cox, president of ProAmpac’s Prolamina division. „More than ever, the packaging is helping our customers capture the attention of shoppers and energize the buying decision.”
