Press release from the issuing company

ATLANTA - Printpack, a leading manufacturer of flexible and specialty rigid packaging, has been honored with the Silver Award for Wide Web Flexographic Printing from the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA). Winners for the FTA’s 2016 Excellence in Flexography Awards were determined during a three day competition. During that period, 30 judges objectively evaluated hundreds of print samples.

The FTA Excellence in Flexography Awards honor print jobs that deliver vividly sharp images, tight registration, consistent repeats, proof to print matching, attention to detail and stellar overall execution. “The tonal range is excellent, the registration is exceptional and the printer maintained the neutral gray throughout the HD dot,” a judge from the FTA noted in regard to the Printpack sample. 

Each entry was meticulously graded by FTA judges on a wide set of criteria, including level of execution, image sharpness, ink coverage, registration, dot/screen/vignette, consistency, degree of difficulty, substrate printability/ink compatibility, registration tolerance, plate/printing complexity, fineness of print or screen, tonal range and defect detectability. Individual grades for each category are summed up and a print’s total score is established.

“This is an award everyone in our company can take great pride in,” says Mark Brogan, Director of Technology and Innovation at Printpack. “We are committed to maintaining the highest quality in all of our work and it takes a complete team to make that possible.”
