LMAI Avery Dennison Awards evening

Our label printers are no less artists who are turning out labels that spell success to brands, a success that sounds like the best of music reaching their ears. Creativity starts with right imagination, generating a great artwork with the end consumers in mind, that is talent! Planning and striving to achieve excellence in print and creating the vibrance finally, is passion. When it is time to produce the label, it begins with the finesse of prepress to printing, plate creation and deciding on the embellishments, that is indulgence. Finally managing the colour, registration, implementation of the embellishments and converting to create magic on the press, that is origination. The whole run through is like an orchestra! The music conductor, our label printer, manages it all to achieve excellence in the label so produced, delivering the desired ambience to the product that adorns the label. Having created excellence and won accolades, it is time for getting rewarded with awards. LMAI endeavors to encourage and felicitate the winners of label competition at a glittering LMAI Avery Dennison Awards Ceremony., which was held on the evening of 11th November 2022.
