Wallace Takes 1st Place in World Label Competition
Press release from the issuing company
January 30, 2001 - Wallace recently won first place honors in the World Label Association’s annual competition for the second consecutive year.
Wallace’s “Discover Novus 2-Way Decal,” produced by its Denver, CO label facility, placed first in the Screen Line and Screen/Tone – Non Prime category. This same label also won a first place award in the recent annual competition of the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI).
Entries in the World Label Association’s 2001 competition were taken from the winning entries of the three major label associations in the world: FINAT (Europe); TLMI (North, South and Central America and Australia); and the Japanese Federation of Label Printers (Japan).
“We are honored to receive such a prestigious award. The Denver Plant has worked diligently to provide our customers with labels that they can be proud to display on their products and in their places of business,” said Bob Turner, Wallace’s Vice President of Label Manufacturing. “This award exemplifies Wallace’s commitment to excellence.”
The entries were considered by a group of international judges representing each of the trade associations. According to Dale Bunnell, Chairman of the World Label Association, “The judges were looking for examples of world class quality which reflected the best use of current production technology. Wallace’s entry met those criteria. This award truly places Wallace among the world leaders in the industry.”
This is the second consecutive year that Wallace has won a first place award in this competition. Last year’s winner was the “Dimple Technology Label,” produced by its Cincinnati, OH facility.
