The FSEA Gold Leaf Awards competition evaluates print and packaging submissions that utilize a wide range of specialty finishing techniques, from foil stamping and embossing to specialty coating, film laminating, diecutting and cold foil applications. Submissions come in a variety of formats, including book covers, point-of-purchase displays, folding cartons, promotional pieces, calendars and more. The pieces are assessed on design, execution and level of difficulty, with the highest honors going to those companies that best execute the decorative enhancements.

The 26th Annual FSEA Gold leaf award winners were announced at the 2019 Odyssey Expo in Atlanta, Georgia, in mid-May. Entries were received from countries around the world, and gold, silver and bronze winners were honored in 41 categories, including those featuring UV-cured coatings.
