FloorSignage, LLC was recently honored with the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Product of the Year for Alumigraphics GRIP – Media for Digital Inkjet Film at this year's SGIA Expo in Orlando, FL. The competition recognized the latest equipment and supplies currently on the market that are advancing the specialty imaging industry.
“This award validates the years of persistence to develop a truly unique media for the digital printing industry. AlumiGraphics Grip achieved our goals of being compatible with all types of printers, environmentally friendly, outdoor durable, and easy to install and remove making it exceptional for point-of-purchase applications,” said Scott Wieclaw, President of FloorSignage. “Alumigraphics GRIP was compared to other products in the Media for Digital Inkjet Film category, and we came out on top. That’s quite an accomplishment!” What sets AlumiGraphics Grip apart from other substrates is the aluminum foil base material combined with a specially designed top surface. The combination allows for direct to the surface printing with no over laminate and easy application and removal to uneven surfaces without heat or trained installers. “It’s designed so that the sign shop saves time in production and the end user can apply and remove the graphics, providing them with more control of posting along with saving time and money” said Micah Causey, Vice President of FloorSignage.
Fifty-five companies from around the world entered the competition, submitting 102 entries in 21 categories. Evaluated during the 2013 SGIA Expo (Orlando, October 23-25), this year’s submissions represented some of the industry’s most innovative digital products.
“The Product of the Year Award Competition highlights the best technologies and consumables from the specialty imaging community,” said Jeff Burton, SGIA’s Digital Printing Analyst. “Entries were so good that judging category winners was a real challenge.”
