Raise the bar. • Utilize FLEXO Magazine’s May 2010 cover as a vehicle to demonstrate the impact of award-winning technology, its combination with readily available materials—both equip- ment and consumables. • Profile a printer ’s and prepress supplier’s expertise in producing a non-traditional, highly specialized flexo print production job, while guaranteeing quality, consistent, repeatable results. • Unveil the outcome, for all to see, at FFTA’s 2010 Annual Forum, May 2, in Las Vegas, NV The Featured Technology: Kodak Flexcel NX Digital Flexographic System—winner of FTA’s 2009 Technical Innovation Award—that promises high resolution and gravure-like quality. The Project Parameters: Marry flexo to offset in a presentation that contains nine different images of award-winning flexographic print jobs—namely recipients of Best-of-Show Honors in FTA’s 2010 Excellence in Flexography Awards Competition. • Tie and/or link that presentation to similar treatment for the host city for FFTA’s Annual Forum—Las Vegas, NV. • Exercise complete freedom in design. • Mandate 100 percent use of readily/ commercially available equipment and materials.
