Fifty-three converters from around the globe submitted more than 300 entries for this year’s TLMI Annual Label Awards Competition. Winners were announced at the TLMI Annual meeting held recently in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Best of Show Award went to Rochester, New York-based Label World for the company’s digitally printed Parkside Smoked Cheddar Sesame Crisps label. The label also won a First Place in the digitally printed Food and Beverage category; it was printed on an HP Indigo 4050 digital press using silver metalized pressure sensitive paper to allow for a simulated gold appearance. A layer of opaque white backs the label’s four color process image, and the label was finished with a full overprinted scuff-resistant varnish. 

John McDermott, president and CEO of Label World said, ‘As a relative newcomer to TLMI, we are extremely pleased to have won the Best of Show award at this year’s annual meeting. We are particularly excited that this award can showcase our digital capabilities, and especially so because this is the first time that a digital label has ever won the TLMI Best of Show Award.’ With over 20 years in the printing industry, Label World is a custom label printing company that offers solutions for product branding, identification, security and tracking.

A total of 77 awards were presented in this year’s competition including one Best of Show, 51 First Place Awards and 25 Second Place awards. More than 10 percent of this year’s entries came from countries outside of North America including Italy, Spain, England, The Philippines, Scotland and Brazil.
