23th Annual Gold Leaf Awards

The Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) proudly announces the honorees in the 23rd Annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition. Gold, silver and bronze winners in 38 categories were recognized at an awards reception during the FSEA National Conference, held in Orlando, Florida.

More than 300 entries were received from around the world, including the US, Canada, Australia, Finland, India and Denmark. Judged on design, execution and level of difficulty, the competition assesses submissions utilizing specialty finishing techniques from foil stamping and embossing to specialty coating, film laminating, laser cutting, diecutting, cold foil application and more. With a commitment to gaining visibility for the processes and those companies that execute the decorative enhancements, the competition celebrates the quality, added value, shelf presence, security and brand recognition that these finishing processes lend to the printed sheet.
