For Immediate Release
AlumiGraphics Smooth selected as 2014 Product of the Year in two categories at SGIA Expo in Las Vegas
AlumiGraphics Awarded Product of the Year for Two Consecutive Years
Columbus, OH, 10/27/14
FloorSignage, LLC, manufacturer of AlumiGraphics products, was honored for the second year in a row with the Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Product of the Year award for AlumiGraphics Smooth. This year in Las Vegas, AlumiGraphics Smooth was selected for Media - Vinyl and also for Media - Non PVC. The competition recognized the latest equipment and supplies currently on the market that are advancing the specialty imaging industry comparing hundreds of entries in over 20 categories.
"The first award for AlumiGraphics Grip in 2013 was an honor but two more awards this year for AlumiGraphics Smooth are simply over the top. These latest awards are a result of feedback from PSP's that used our original material and requested some variations to the surface" says Scott Wieclaw, President of FloorSignage, LLC. "We owe a lot of thanks to those companies that understood the benefits of foil-based-media (FMB) vs. vinyl media and used it on all types of outdoor wall surfaces."
The Product of the Year Award Competition highlights the best technologies and consumables from the specialty imaging community and judged by industry professionals. Vice president Micah Causey said "once we introduced AlumiGraphics Smooth we quickly understood that this would become our number one selling product because PSP's have opportunities almost daily to sell graphics on walls, columns and building wraps and AlumiGraphics Smooth makes the possibilities easier". "More evidence of this came in the form of the 2014 SGIA benchmark report showing that building wraps and graphics are categories with strong growth". Causey adds that "there are some good products out there but AlumiGraphics Smooth is user friendly to produce and apply and it can last much longer on outdoor surfaces. It's the difference of FBM vs vinyl".
Wieclaw says "we listen to our customers and they enjoy printing direct to the surface with no over laminate and simple application and removal to textured surfaces without heat or trained installers. There is growing demand for graphics that end users can apply and remove, allowing them more control of posting along with saving time and money". Also, "recognizing that AlumiGraphics is an environmentally friendly wide format media is meaningful to many customers and an important additional benefit to the other features of the material".
