Seven was certainly our lucky number at the recent Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) Excellence in Flexography awards – where we came away with over half a dozen prizes, including Best Of Show!
Along with the top honour – for our Sky Cinema Announcing Our Christmas 2019 Animation Extravaganza Envelope – we were over the moon to win three gold awards, one silver and two bronze.
Our gold wins were for: Envelope, Process, Coated Paper for our Sky Cinema Envelope; Envelope, Line, Coated Paper for the Salon International 2019 Your VIP Invitation, Exclusively for You Envelope; and the Envelope, Screen, Coated Paper for our The Folio Society Christmas Gift Guide Envelope.
We won a silver award in the Envelope, Process, Coated Paper category for our myWaitrose Beautifully Simple Envelope while taking bronze in the Envelope, Line, Uncoated Paper category for our Institute of Cancer Research Search Envelope and in the Envelope, Process, Coated Paper field for our M&S Sparks Christmas All Wrapped Up Envelope.
As the longest running and most prestigious annual print competition, the awards honour outstanding companies who have made exceptional quality their mission in the pursuit of printing excellence.
Russell Croisdale, Encore Group managing director, said: “Being nominated for any award is always a delight, but to come away with seven – including best of show – is just phenomenal.
“I’m so proud of the entire Encore team, particularly over the past few months, and these awards are a testament to their hard work and enthusiasm.
