ORLANDO, Fla., May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SunDance (sundanceusa.com), an Orlando-based firm offering design, print and mailing services, today reported that it was the recipient of two prestigious Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) Gold Leaf awards, chosen from among hundreds of exquisite entries submitted from around the world. The 23rd Annual Gold Leaf Awards were presented at an Awards Banquet during the Annual FSEA Conference in Orlando, FL on April 4, 2016.
Since its inception in 1992, the Foil & Specialty Effects Association has worked toward industry awareness and growth. It serves as a resource and educational platform for decorating technologies, including foil stamping, embossing, cold foil technologies, specialty coatings, laminates and laser cutting.
"We are very proud to have received these awards," said JohnHenry Ruggieri, Managing Director. "The competition was stiff and the submissions for the awards process were exceptional. We are humbled by the decision of the expert judges, who chose two SunDance submissions for recognition with Gold Leaf Awards. You can be sure these awards will hold pride of place on our awards wall at SunDance."
FSEA Gold Leaf awards are a means of recognizing exceptional performance in three categories: Design, Execution and Level of Difficulty. SunDance submissions garnered awards for Best Use of Laser Cutting/Edging for the SunDance Wine Bottle Case; and Miscellaneous/Creative Use of Foil Stamping/Embossing on the cover of a history book for Hard Rock.
- This is Hard Rock is a Hard Rock history book that includes three sections: This is our Roots, This is our Essence and This is our Experience. The cover featured white foil lettering and was finished with a soft-touch film laminate.
- SunDance Wine Bottle Case: As a self-promotional piece, SunDance created a laser-engraved wooden wine box with a stunning winery scene using our state-of-the-art laser cutter/engraver. In addition to the outstanding work this took can do with wood, our tests have shown it does equally well on glass, crystal, ceramics, marble, onyx, tiles, and even metal.
"The recognition we received at this important industry event could not have been achieved without the hard work of the talented SunDance team," Ruggieri added. "Together, we have built an expanded portfolio of capabilities, developed over years of listening to customer requirements and unmet needs, that gives us a range of capabilities unusual for a firm our size."
