Creation and Hamilton Partnership Strikes Gold – Creation

Kenko Koi

The expertise and design skillset at Creation Reprographics, specialists in packaging artwork, pre-press and plate production, helped printed and plain label manufacturer, Hamilton Adhesive Labels, strike gold at this year’s FlexoTech Awards.

Creation’s reprographic experts managed the pre-press process on Hamilton’s Queni Koi label design, which was awarded the coveted overall Supreme Winner and claimed gold in the process labels category at the ceremony, held on October 10, 2018.

Using Creation’s state-of-the-art reprographics software, the Asahi AWP® plate and Pulse PureTone® inks and varnishes, enabled Hamilton to combine rich colour and bold tones with high-end quality graphics to create a distinctive flexographic print.

Hamilton’s Managing Director, Chris Marsh, said: “We really couldn’t have achieved a label with the design and quality levels seen on the Queni Koi pack without the support and outstanding expertise that Creation were able to deliver. Working with their team enabled us to develop a label to a golden standard and they are a trusted partner to us in ensuring we are delivering extraordinary levels of service and quality to customers.”

Creation has supported Hamilton Adhesive Labels to excel in print excellence following the adoption of its Asahi AWP flexographic plate system. Hamilton began integrating the water washable plate into its operations back in 2016 due to its ability to deliver print superiority and extensive sustainability credentials.

Creation understands the complexities of the industry in delivering competitive and efficient printing processes and supported Hamilton throughout internal trials enabling the company to produce premium printed labels.

Managing Director of Creation, Matt Francklow, said: “The award wins at FlexoTech are a fantastic achievement for Hamilton and we are very proud that they chose Creation to work with on this project. The relationship that we have developed with Hamilton over the past few years is crucial in fine-tuning a process where the parameters are so vital.”
