Local outfits Kiwi Labels and Rapid Labels have both taken out awards at the global Flint Group Print Awards, for work done on Xeikon digital label presses.

The overall winner was Kiwi Labels from New Zealand, with the judges noting its label for H20 Pure Bottled Water was ‘Truly spectacular, it just jumps off the shelf. The various embellishment techniques elevate one another and culminate in the ultimate eye-catcher. This label allows both printer and customer to differentiate themselves from the competition.’

NZ company Rapid Labels also won, in the Self-promotion category, with judges noting: ‘This print marvel reveals the capabilities the Xeikon XC3. It combines all technical highlights of the printer and illustrates the beauty of print quality done right.’

Xeikon says, “Within the Digital Solutions category of the 13th Annual Flint Group Print Awards, printers from all over the world submitted labels in various categories, and we asked two jury experts to select the finest of the finest.

“David Zwang judged the labels on production quality based on his years of technical expertise and experience.

“Deborah Corn, who has years of print buying experience, assessed the general look and feel. All decisions were made unanimously.”

The label awards were a segment of the company’s Digital Solutions Category, now in its 13th edition of the awards.
