Additionally, TC Transcontinental Packaging was the recipient of the coveted “Best of Show” award, for Transcontinental Robbie’s Post Fruity Pebbles/Cocoa Pebbles packages, while also winning a Silver award in the Wide Web/Line/Film category as well as in the Wide Web/Screen/Film category, a Bronze in the Wide Web/Screen/Coated Paper category, and a Self-Promotion award for its Inspire NexGen 240 bag.
For the second year in a row, TC Transcontinental Packaging has been recognized with the prestigious “Best of Show” for its printing performance and execution.
“It is very rewarding to win FTA’s back-to-back ‘Best of Show’ award and to be recognized by the industry,” said Pepper Stokes, GM ] of Transcontinental Robbie. “The challenge in printing this particular project was the two different SKUs on the web which are on totally opposite ends of the tonal range. The Fruity Pebbles is largely high-key, bright colors and the Cocoa Pebbles is largely low key dark colors. At the same time, within each of these items we have solid/near solids of the process colors on the same plate as highlights, so we are hitting almost 100% of the tonal range on each. Both represented very busy designs with a lot of individual elements requiring great detail to be produced. Together with leading edge technology in prepress, plate materials, and world class press room execution, we were able to show what flexography printing can accomplish.”
