Silver Trophy Won at the International Flexography Competition Grand Prix Cyrel Awards 2010
This June in Prague, the DuPont Congress 2010 International Flexo-Print-Pack was held, and with it, the competition Grand Prix Cyrel Awards 2010 was recapped. The Grand Prix Cyrel Awards 2010 is a highly acclaimed competition to assess works in the field of flexography all over the world. This year, the 8th competition took place, and for the first time, Estiko Plastar AS along with the flexoplate producer Data Plate OÜ took part in it. It is a pleasure to announce that the competition proved to be a success for us. Over 500 works entered the competition and five top works in each of the five categories were awarded a trophy. Our entry, titled “Ciabatta with spinach and olives” was awarded a 2nd place trophy and a certificate of honour. The same was awarded to the flexoplate producer Data Plate OÜ and Mantinga UAB from Lithuania, who ordered the package, and whose great design was one of the key points in winning the trophy. Arkadi Kirss from Data Plate OÜ was in Prague to receive the awards.
The congratulatory letter sent by DuPont stresses that this accomplishment is a testimony to the high printing quality of Estiko Plastar AS, in accordance with the highest standards of flexography. The high acclaim can be credited to the constant development of our print preparations and printing technology as well as buying high tech printing presses at the beginning of the 2000s. The awarded work was printed on the Novoflex press manufactured by Windmöller & Hölscher.
Cooperation with Data Plate OÜ has completely converted our printing technology onto digital plates. Together, we have held in-service training for typographers and people working in computer-aided graphic design. In the middle of 2016, we have started to use Digiflow & Pixel+ technology, so as to increase the quality of our printing even more
