Charlotte, North Carolina - The Kurz Group was awarded two Golds, three Silvers and one Bronze at this year's FSEA (Foil and Specialty Effects Association) Gold Leaf Awards. In addition to the Gold Leaf Award, the stamping foil manufacturer also received the “Best of Show” prize in the greeting card category for the Christmas card created by its US subsidiary Kurz Transfer Products, L.P. Kurz's second Gold was earned in the category for best application of a holographic foil for the poster "The Beautiful". With the special award for print finishing at Printstars and the Silver at the Creativity International Awards, "The Beautiful" had already reaped its third award.
