FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Ceremony
Las Vegas Raiders season ticket booklets win gold at the FSEA Gold Leaf Award Ceremony
Norcross, GA, July 5, 2023 – CPI, a division of FineLine Technologies, announced today that it received the top prize in the prestigious FSEA Gold Leaf Awards for Best Use of Digital Foil for the 2022 Las Vegas Raiders season ticket booklets.
The FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition evaluates submissions that utilize a wide range of specialty finishing techniques from foil stamping and embossing to specialty coating, film laminating, laser cutting, die cutting, and cold foil applications. Submissions come in a variety of formats, including greeting cards, folding cartons, labels, promotional pieces, calendars and more.
The award-winning Las Vegas Raiders season ticket booklets contain 15 different ticket types and 13 different pieces of artwork that are unique for each game. Each Las Vegas Raiders game has unique foil and SCODIX polymers, which is a raised UV treatment that imbues additional texture and high shine into each ticket. The foil treatments are perfectly matched with the ticket printing and images and are applied as these tickets go through a minimum of four processes on different printers. The processes include a perforator, an Igen machine for variable data and color, a foil machine, and a SCODIX that adds raised UV treatment. The front cover of each ticket book is also hot foil stamped using custom magnesium dies.
Each game ticket contains an encoded RFID inlay, which is applied to the ticket back and contains the season ticket holder’s specific seating information for each game. This RFID inlay also allows for additional fan engagement both during and after the game.
FineLine CEO George Hoffman said, “The Raiders have always believed in supplying their season ticket members with cutting edge items that add value to the Raiders brand. These beautifully crafted ticket booklets are truly a work of art and require considerable design work and production expertise that CPI brings.”
CPI Vice President and General Manager Curtis Howells added, “For more than 25 years, the Raiders have depended on CPI to deliver branded items that delight their season ticket holders. We’re proud to work with such a respected brand and deliver a unique experience every game to season ticket holders.
