From greeting cards and labels to packaging, advertising and promotional materials, the presence of a foil stamped and/or embossed image on a product represents quality, added value, shelf presence, individuality and security. As the use of foil stamping, embossing and holography continues to grow in existing markets and penetrate new markets, the Foil Stamping and Embossing Assn. (FSEA) (Topeka, KS) continues in its goal to discover and promote excellence in these very mediums with its annual Gold Leaf Awards Competition.

Entries are judged on design, execution and the level of difficulty. The 2004 Gold Leaf Award winners are featured on the following pages. The deadline for entering the 2005 competition is January 16, 2006. See www.fsea.com for more details.
