end result of the mid web, folding carton, and napkin category competition. While the mid web submissions can cover many diff erent substrates, the folding carton and napkin entries sit on very opposite ends of the spectrum, especially as far as thickness and ink holdout. But one thing they all have in common: those that earn awards are among the best. In mid web, MeadWestvaco and Peruplast both earned medals. Judges gave three awards to American Greetings Corp.

Among them, Cascades Boxboard took two prizes, as well as the Best of Show for its Becel® Buttery—Light carton. “Line and process work both had good color saturation,” said Dan Reilly, Flint Group, a level of execution judge. “Smooth vignettes and excellent fl esh tones made this piece stand out. The judging was very diffi cult because so many excellent examples were submitted. Most pieces scored out very high, creating a close competition.” Tenorio called the piece a “textbook example of a job where all of the attributes Add a little magic to your printing plant!
