West Springfield, MA – FiberMark, a manufacturer of specialty cellulose and synthetic fiber-based printing media, is now welcoming submissions for the Annual Specifier Awards to wide format inkjet applications. The FiberMark Specifier Awards program was created to celebrate the best of color, texture, pattern and design. It recognizes excellence in design innovation in a wide array of packaging, publishing, office products, graphic arts and industrial applications from around the world. Since its introduction in 1992, the Awards program has earned an increasing reputation as one of the industry’s most prestigious competitions.
New this year are categories for wide format inkjet print media which include: Signs, Banners, Art/Décor, Displays, Wallcoverings, and Wall Murals. A miscellaneous – Other – category is also provided for projects that fall outside the list of application options.
Any product produced during the previous calendar year is eligible for submission. Entries are judged by a panel of experts who consider the best examples of the aforementioned color, texture, pattern and design, and their expression throughout a range of “naturally creative” materials and themes. Importantly, the judges also weigh construction quality and the relationship of the covering material to the overall product.
Get your hard work recognized in a publication with a 20 year history! If you have printed, designed, specified, or purchased any of the above applications, you could be this year’s Best of Show winner.
