28th Annual Gold Leaf Awards

The Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) has opened the 28th Annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition. FSEA invites companies in the finishing, printing, folding carton, greeting card and binding industries to submit their best work.

The FSEA Gold Leaf Awards program has grown as entries are submitted from around the world by finishers and binders that want to compete against the best in the industry. New technologies have fueled growth, too, with expanded award categories in areas such as digital foil and other specialty UV coatings. Entries will be judged on design, execution and level of difficulty in more than 25 categories, with a gold, silver and bronze award presented in each category.

Entry deadline is March 8th.
