Finishing Industry Celebrates at Gold Leaf Reception

Foil & Specialty Effects Association

The Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) announced the honorees in its 26th Annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition during a reception held at Odyssey Expo 2019, Atlanta, Georgia, in mid-May. Gold, silver and bronze winners were honored in 41 categories, and Best of Show and two Best of Show Honorable Mention honorees also were revealed.

D.E. Baugh, Indianapolis, Indiana, was awarded the 2019 Best of Show award for "A Baugh Christmas Story," which was entered in the category of Greeting Card, Self-Promotion: Most Creative. D.E. Baugh channeled its annual holiday greeting to customers into an opportunity to impress clients with not only its structural design capabilities, but also its high-end, value-added services while having a little fun along the way. Playing on the classic movie "A Christmas Story," recipients opened a "crate" containing a special surprise. Once the card is opened, the shadowbox inside shows the leg lamp glowing against a holiday scene. In addition to foil stamped and embossed elements on the flap, interior elements were multi-level embossed, while some design elements also were diecut.

Two Honorable Mention certificates were awarded the first was presented to Gravure Choquet for "Kallima Swatch Book," in the Client Promotion / Brochure category; and the second to J.S. McCarthy for its "2019 Calendar of 19th Century Inventions," which was submitted in the Self-Promotion category.
