2018 PrintROCKS! Awards

What’s not to love about what we do? We want to share that with the rest of the printing industry and with you. Every year, we submit our pieces to various print competitions, including PrintROCKS!, part of PPI Association. This year, our parent company Alexander’s gained seven awards and a “Mad Props” award for a marketing campaign we created! Four of those awards went to Tektured products and pieces. Just as we wanted to show off our pieces to PrintROCKS!, we want to show them off to you!

Mad Props – Tektured Foil Promotional Series

We received “Mad Props” for the promotions we created for our brand Tektured. This brand focuses on creating branded promotional products for suppliers to pass on to their clients. Tektured also emphasizes MGI digital spot foil and UV varnish, which we used on a lot of our promotional materials for this series!

The cool part about this award is that it’s 3D printed! We know our designer is very pleased to have such a fun award for his hard work.

Best of Invitations and Programs

Tektured foil and varnish open house

Part of our Tektured campaign, these invitations in clear envelopes invited clients to an exclusive premiere of our facility. The premiere was all about how our foil and varnish work. Because our brand is all about texture and touch, of course we had to use digital foil and varnish on them! They look and feel like real tickets on a leather background!

Best of Foil Stamping

Tektured foil finish guide

Another piece of the Tektured promotional series! This finish guide inspires potential and existing customers on how to use digital foil and varnish.

Each page has a side-by-side comparison of print with and without MGI enhancement. This makes the impact of digital foil and varnish much clearer, and highlights how clients could use them in creative ways–like creating a leather texture, simulating a glass of water, or making realistic sprinkles on a glossy glazed donut! It’s a short but sweet look into the power of touch marketing and design using MGI finishes.

Best of Promotional Campaigns, Business to Business (Digital)

Tektured sample kit

The final, major player in Tektured’s promotion, the sample kit has it all. A notebook with both foil and varnish, foil samples, a sturdy luggage tag, and a docupad you can brand to match any business. The kit itself comes with plenty of useful information about the products and services offered at Tektured. Plus, it uses foil and varnish as well! One of the most interesting things about it is how we’ve used varnish to simulate stitching on the case and a glass compass, making this whole kit feel exactly like a travel bag.

 

These winners will go on to the PIA Premier Print Awards. Winners of this contest will receive statues of Benjamin Franklin (called “Benny” awards)–two of which we’ve won before! With so many entries, Tektured hopes to gain new recognition for our design and technology.
