Labeltronix Takes Home 'Gold' in Flexography Awards Five Years in a Row

Posted on May 21, 2013

For the fifth consecutive year, Labeltronix is a gold award winner for Excellence in Flexography from The Flexographic Technical Association (FTA).

“With these latest honors, we have now won 24 gold, silver and bronze medals over a five-year period from the Flexographic Technical Association, and I’m very proud of our team that earned us this recognition,” said John Trail, president of Labeltronix.

Labeltronix also brought home two silvers and a bronze in the annual event, which is an international competition for excellence in flexography—a printing process that uses flexible relief plates with raised images.

The awards showcased Labeltronix’s innovative technology, which includes “high-definition flexo” color printing that produces photo-quality labels. The color on these stunning labels has a “real-life” look.

“We are the first—and only—label printing business in the country capable of delivering this premium quality on every order, every day,” says Trail. The decision not to charge extra for the upgrade in quality since it was introduced in 2009 is in keeping with the company’s Lean Labeling® philosophy.
“One of our bedrock goals is to produce the highest quality labels available in the market while using Lean Labeling, which produces those labels at a cost and delivery that can’t be beat,” Trail says.

“We go for the gold on every project,” Trail says. “That attitude is reflected in our ISO 9001:2008 certification, which we earned in 2010. It’s the standard of excellence we continue to maintain for ourselves, whether we are entered into a competition, or not.”

The gold award was for processed printing on a metalized paper label that a sports nutrition product uses. The other three awards were for wine labels. Two silver awards were granted to Labeltronix-produced labels—one in the “screen uncoated” category and the other in the “line uncoated” category. Labeltronix also won a bronze for a “screen uncoated” wine label.

“We’re especially proud of that success this year, as we celebrate our 20th anniversary as a business.” Trail said. “With these latest honors, we have now won 24 gold, silver and bronze medals over a five-year period from the Flexographic Technical Association, and I’m very proud of our team that earned us this recognition.”
