DFTA Award

Christiansen Print impresses with preprint expertise

The preprinting specialists at Christiansen Print won big at the Flexographic Printing Association e. V.’s DFTA Awards ceremony this year, taking home prizes in the categories of 'Digital Package Printing' and 'Preprinted Corrugated Cardboard'. The jury focused on criteria such as print quality, innovation, environmental aspects, and complexity.

In the 'Digital Package Printing' category, they received the award for a printed image for Aoste-brand displays; the design stands out due to its natural-looking wood-grain structure, which also creates significant challenges for the printing process. The design was printed on uncoated paper with a working width of 2.8m and was produced using the HP PageWide T1100S digital web press in Ilsenburg.

"The award-winning product represents excellent print results with exceptional colour quality, creating a nearly 3D effect for the viewer," says Michael Weber, Director Corporate Marketing Thimm Group. "Digital printing makes it possible to realise even the most sophisticated print designs on uncoated papers, yielding cost advantages for the customer."

Weber concludes, "The awards reflect our commitment to quality and our high level of preprinting expertise and, of course, it motivates our team to keep delivering first-class print products."
