KANSAS CITY, MO—Flexographic Technical Association recently recognized Tension Corporation for its expertise and print quality in flexographic printing. Tension was awarded two FTA 2018 Excellence in Flexography Awards.
The Excellence in Flexography Awards are presented to web, combined corrugated, preprinted linerboard and envelope, self-promotion and non-traditional printers, and entries are judged on consistency, image sharpness, defect detectability and ink coverage. This year, 11 of the total 114 awards were in the envelope division that included four gold, five silver and two bronze awards.
“We continuously seek to provide our customers with the best-quality products on the market,” said Lon Robinson, Tension Corporation director of research and development and 2018 FTA Hall of Fame Inductee. “It is an honor to be recognized by the FTA for the print quality of our products, because it gives our customers third-party validation of our quality-promise.”
Tension’s award-winning envelopes included:
- Gold Award in Envelope, Line, Uncoated Paper
- Silver Award in Envelope, Line, Uncoated Paper
The winners in the “Line, Uncoated Paper” category demonstrated excellence in the quality of registration and attention to detail. Judges commented that Tension’s gold-award envelope had “great, solid coverage” and the silver-award envelope featured a “nice ink laydown at green color.”
A longtime leader in print quality, Tension has consistently received FTA awards for its flexographic printing.
