• Wide Web: Ampac Paper – US
• Corrugated: Advance Packaging Corp. (through Printron Engravers) - US

"Again this year, the FTA Excellence Awards demonstrated just how far flexographic printing has come and the world-class quality that flexo is capable of," says Wendy Andrushko, North American director of sales for DuPont Packaging Graphics. "We are also delighted to note that this is the first time that a Best of Show was awarded to a Cyrel Round user—printed by Plastic Packaging with sleeves imaged by Southern Graphics—and were very pleased that, once again, a high percentage of the award winners were printed with Cyrel. We wish to recognize all those customers that continue to advance flexography."
