Glenroy Inc., a converter and printer of flexible packaging for over 50 years, was presented with five awards for expertise in flexographic printing at the Great Lakes Graphics Association (GLGA)'s 2016 Graphics Excellence Awards.
An affiliate of Printing Industries of America, GLGA states that the Graphic Excellence Awards is the largest regional affiliate print competition in the U.S. and is intensely competitive. The Graphics Excellence Awards program recognizes companies for superb craftsmanship in the design, creation and production of top-quality printed material produced for their customers.
Competing with approximately 900 entries, Glenroy won "Best of Category" awards for Petsmile Pet Toothpaste in the category of Flexo -- Wide Web, Process and for Persil Pro Clean in the category of Flexo -- Wide Web, Screen. Glenroy was also awarded a "Certificate of Excellence" for La Vie! Vibrant Energy dietary supplement and two "Awards of Excellence" for Ester-C dietary supplement and Gaviscon Max Relief.

The judging criteria included registration, crossovers, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonal qualities of color, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, and overall visual impact.
