FSEA Announces Gold Leaf Award Winners

PostPress

Embossing, foil stamping and specialty effects can raise the level of quality, added value, shelf presence, brand recognition and security for a product. These are the types of unique and eye-catching pieces the Foil & Specialty Effects Association showcases during its annual Gold Leaf Awards Competition.

The 24th Annual Gold Leaf Award winners were honored during the IADD•FSEA Odyssey, held in Schaumburg, Illinois. More than 300 entries were received from around the world, including pieces from the US, Canada, Australia and the UK. Judging was based on design, execution and level of difficulty, with submissions utilizing a number of specialty finishing techniques from foil stamping and embossing to specialty coating, film laminating, laser cutting, diecutting, cold foil application and more.
