Featured Award Winner: Time to Be Extraordinary
LasX Industries is proud to have been selected as a Bronze Leaf Award winner in the Best Use of Laser Cutting category at the 20th Annual Gold Leaf Awards Competition, sponsored by the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA). The prestigious Gold Leaf Awards Competition honors imaginative and technically difficult works in a variety of categories which creatively incorporate foil stamping, embossing, die cutting, or specialty effects. Each year it is a culmination of the most original, brilliant and innovative works in the industry. Design, execution, and level of difficulty were used as criteria to judge more than 250 entries submitted this year by trade finishers and commercial printers from across the globe, which competed in 29 different categories.
LasX has a long history of achievement at the Gold Leaf Awards. This is the fourth consecutive year LasX has received an honor in the competition, including both Gold and Silver in 2010.
The Time to Be Extraordinary Clock Piece, designed and laser cut by LasX Industries, features multiple laser cut panels to illustrate clock gears and hands. When closed, the cover of the folder reveals a stunning, three dimensional clock face. Detail like this can only be achieved using laser cutting. But it also critical to that the laser system is able to deliver superior registration and precision, especially with a piece that is both printed and cut on multiple panels that must perfectly align. This award winner was cut on a sheet-fed LaserSharp® STP laser cutting system, ideal for greeting cards, direct mail pieces, folding cartons, and more.
