Appleton Coated Wins Gold and Silver Awards for Recent Swatchbooks in Gold Ink Awards Competition
COMBINED LOCKS, WI—September 15, 2014—The Gold Ink Awards honored Appleton Coated with a Gold and Silver award for its recent swatchbooks. The awards ceremony and Hall of Fame Banquet will be held in Chicago on September 29 in conjunction with GRAPH EXPO 14, and featured in Printing Impressions magazine.
“Considered the ‘Oscars of the printing industry,’ the Gold Ink Awards are judged by a dozen professionals and peers. In addition to having our own promotional materials recognized among the year’s best examples of creative, printed communication, it’s always nice to see the number of Gold Ink entrants who select our papers for their award-winning work,” said Ferkó Goldinger, Appleton Coated’s marketing manager.
A Gold award will be presented for the new Curious Collection swatchbook, designed by Appleton Coated’s Judy Brochtrup. The swatchbook welcomed Curious Matter, an avant-garde, uniquely textured paper made with potato starch, and complements the other six grades of multi-sensory papers in Curious Collection. These fine papers are manufactured by Arjowiggins and distributed exclusively in North America by Appleton Coated.
The Utopia Swatchbook, designed by The Thorburn Group of Minneapolis, MN, will receive a Silver award. The swatchbook helps navigate the entire Utopia family of six high-quality, coated papers’ grades, shades, finishes and distinct personalities, ranging from the elegance of Premium to hardworking Utopia Three.
