Flying the Association flag at FESPA 2015


UK Association Members landed two silvers and a bronze in the prestigious 2015 FESPA Awards, and other UK companies were also among the prizes in Cologne.

Traditionally reticent at these competitions, UK Association companies overcame their shyness to take the two silvers and a bronze in an entry of more than 300 exhibits. Novalia Limited and The Print House Group both took Silver for "Drum Poster" and "Soul Bird Fine Art Print" respectively. DS Smith Display took Bronze for "ASDA Multi-Product FSDU".

Novalia are used to such acclamations, with their work winning awards all over the world. Dr Kate Stone and her team have even created a new word "printovation" in their remarkable work. DS Smith are a major player in the industry but that did not hide the delight of David Atchinson, Operations Director at their plant in Ely when their multiproduct FSDU won bronze.

The UK Association was particularly pleased when a Limited Edition print commissioned for the Screen Printing Now Conference in 2014 won Silver in its class. It was alongside some of the most remarkable work in the competition.
