Color-Offset wins SAPPI Award


In a spectacular gala event just north of Düsseldorf, Sappi announced today the winners of the 2004 Sappi European Printer of the Year Award.

37 printers from 13 countries in Europe and the Middle East were awarded with Gold, Silver and Bronze for commercial products that have been filed in seven price categories. It consists of annual reports, books, brochures, calendars and posters, general, magazines, and packaging & labels.

The annual prices from Sappi awarded by an international jury of independent experts from the printing industry and recognizes the best technical skills of European printers. This year the winners were selected out of 1812 submissions from 782 printers from 34 countries.

More than 300 guests including leading figures from the European printing and paper industry attended the award ceremony in the "Gasometer" in Oberhausen.

In welcoming the guests the managing director of Sappi, Jonathan Leslie, said: "Just before the DRUPA the Sappi European Printer of the Year Awards will demonstrate again how much creativity and talent the printers have."

„Die Juroren stimmten überein, dass der allgemeine Standard der Beiträge außergewöhnlich hoch und es an der Spitze extrem schwierig war, sich auf einen Gewinner zu einigen. Wir begrüßen daher die bemerkenswerten Fortschritte der Drucker, die heute gewonnen haben. Sie können stolz darauf sein, zu den Vorreitern der europäischen Druckbranche zu gehören.“

The awards in Gold

Out of the awards which were distributed among the printers, the judges chose six gold winners. The Italian company Fontegrafica from Cinisello Balsamo, in the last year as the Sappi International Printer of the Year, scored with three awards, the best result ever achieved in one year by a printer. Another company from Italy, Print Media from Milan, won the Printers Award.

Among the gold winners: Color Offset and "2004 Giesecke & Devrient"

Color Offset from Munich, received a Gold Award in the category Calendar & Posters for the calendar of banknote printer “Giesecke & Devrient”, a four color offset print on Hello Matt Paper 300 g / m². Under the slogan "The structure of world trade" on each page the development of a particular currency was presented and attached with a genuine banknote.

The judges praised all participants in the category for their creativity and the techniques used for the creation of "real art". According to the jurors the calendar represents by his original design and the convenient format, an interesting history to the development of money and combines it with the practical aspects of a calendar for daily use. The calendar was produced with the greatest care, using an FM screen, metallic inks, spot varnish and embossing and then added with the banknotes.
