Kodak and AGC Honor Two Graphic Communications Companies Using Advanced Screening Technologies

Press release from the issuing company

ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 11 -- Kodak, in conjunction with the Association of Graphic Communications (AGC) and AGC’s 64th Annual Graphic Arts Awards, will present KODAK Technology Application Awards to L.P. Thebault Company and New York Label & Box. The honors will be presented at the 2006 AGC Graphic Arts Awards Exhibition Designers and Technical Excellence Day on May 11. L.P. Thebault Company will receive the KODAK Technology Application Award for production of a BURBERRY men’s clothing catalog. The Parsippany, N.J., company used a combination of conventional screening and KODAK STACCATO screening to print on an uncoated, textured stock to create a soft look for earth toned fabrics and sharp and bold colors for accessories. Kodak and the AGC credited L.P. Thebault and Burberry for clearly understanding the value of collaboration and for applying the right technologies for the right job. New York Label & Box Corporation of Islandia, N.Y., will receive the KODAK Advanced Technology Recognition Award for the production of a pressure sensitive label for ROLAIDS Soft Chews. The Long Island label and tag printer used KODAK HYPERFLEX Ready Imaging Software and KODAK MAXTONE hybrid screening to eliminate the highlight break often associated with flexo printing. HYPERFLEX Ready Imaging Software and MAXTONE hybrid screening allowed the creation of smooth vignettes while eliminating excess waste on setup. The AGC and Kodak noted that New York Label’s use of screening technologies reduced creative limitations and led to greater shelf appeal. “Kodak is pleased to join with the AGC in honoring these two technology savvy graphic communications companies,” said Kevin Joyce, Managing Director, United States and Canada Region, and Vice President, Graphic Communications Group (GCG). “As these award winners show, print providers have new ways to partner with their customers and to strengthen their customer relationships.” Kodak will present the awards at 11 a.m. May 11 at 245 Park Ave. in New York City. The AGC, a regional affiliate of Printing Industries of America/Graphic Arts Technical Foundation, is the leading advocate for the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut metropolitan area’s $20 billion graphic communications industry. It provides education and training, and program and networking opportunities for its printing, advertising, publishing and graphics sectors.
