    ROCHESTER, N.Y., October 14 -- 

    Ontario, Canada-based ASL Print FX recently asserted its position as one of world’s best flexo label printers by capturing the first ever World Label Association’s “Best of the Best” award for its Rennie Estate Winery label at the Global Label Awards in Brussels.

    The international award, considered to be the most prestigious of the label industry, is only open to World Label Award recipients, an honor that ASL achieved earlier this year for the Rennie label. An impressive honor on its own, ASL bested worthy competition from 223 entrants around the world to win the World Label Award. The victory was unprecedented because it marked ASL’s third year in row as a recipient of a World Label Award.

     ASL uses KODAK FLEXCEL NX Plates for all its label production and, since the installation of its FLEXCEL NX System in September 2008, has invested considerable effort in the optimization and standardization of its print production process.

    “The FLEXCEL NX System is fundamental to our print production capabilities,” says Stacy Daly, VP and General Manager, ASL Print FX. “It provides a consistent and stable foundation that delivers outstanding print quality day in and day out. We have gained a reputation for award-winning label production, but the beauty of the KODAK Solution is that we achieve our high quality under truly efficient daily production conditions.”

    ASL utilizes KODAK PRINERGY POWERPACK Workflow and KODAK STACCATO Screening to print all its labels using full stochastic screening, a production workflow that was recently not possible in flexo printing.

    “We have recently invested in additional upgrades for our PRINERGY Workflow installation, and it is clearly recognized as an industry standard by our brand clients,” said Daly. “Long-term partnerships are very important to us, and Kodak’s ability to provide us with complete leading-edge solutions makes them the perfect partner for ASL.”

    Kodak customers around the world are using FLEXCEL Systems to deliver outstanding results to their customers and are rewriting the flexo packaging “rules.”

    “On behalf of Kodak I would like to extend our congratulations to the whole team at ASL Print FX for their outstanding achievement,” says John O’Grady, Kodak Vice President and Regional Managing Director, U.S. and Canada. “Together we are changing the game in regards to the capabilities of flexo printing, and high-quality, efficient label production. It is an exciting time to be in the label industry, and we are honored to be key partners with ASL.”
