The FTA stated that the competition for this year's awards was fierce and saw some of the best print jobs in the competition's 55 year history. More than 450 print samples were submitted and 106 received awards in 10 different categories.

One of the FTA judges noted that, "the quality of the print entries this year has pushed the execution and difficulty to a new level. From older machines to newer more complex units, the competition has driven innovation to preprint and combined packaging."

"We are honored to receive this recognition from our peers.
