Print On Hard Surfaces Must Read | 2023 Pyramid Awards | Supplier Decorating GOLD WINNER Indiana Metal Craft PPAI 112175, S5 Bloomington, Indiana This specially crafted ornament was digitally post-printed, bringing an antique engine to life though detailed depth and relief. A UV-cure flat-bed digital printer with 3D capability was used to produce the effect. Recipients can see how fine details at varying levels – including the bolts, the belt, the oil reservoir and the gear behind the flywheel – come together through a combination of artisanal die making, highrelief casting and skillful print registration and color matching. SILVER WINNER CounterPoint PPAI 227346, S6 Las Vegas, Nevada Martell, the oldest of the great French cognac houses, prides itself on being a pioneer of audacious and exceptional cognac. This promotional counter mat captures the iconic nature of the Martell brand while also catching potential customers’ attention through its image quality and highgloss Krystex finish. An example of digital offset lithography, this counter mat is realistic, visually effective and provides customers stimulation at the point of purchase. GOLD WINNER Orbus Visual Communications PPAI 428128, S7 Woodridge, Illinois Far & Dotter needed a trade show booth that could showcase different environments of a franchise experience. Adler Display partnered with Orbus Visual Communications to create a custom booth that could be reconfigured into a 20x20 exhibit or a 10x30 exhibit. With Orbus’ ability to print on sheer fabric, the client could create the privacy of a conference room without needing to add bulky or expensive walls, while also adding branding throughout the booth. Orbus was able to print clear, vibrant images on the soft knit and eclipse blackout fabrics to help the booth tell the franchise experience story. As a G7 Master IDEAlliance certified printer, Orbus was able to accurately color match brand colors, skin tones, photographs and more. Print On Textiles 76 • SEPTEMBER 2023 • PPAI
