The 23rd Annual Gold Leaf Awards were held in early April in Florida, USA, and have awarded Watermarx a Bronze award in the Announcement Invitation – Technical Use of Foil/Embossing category. The award is given out by the Foil & Specialty Effects Association, and it attracts entries from all over the world demonstrated the best in foil stamping, embossing and other specialty effects.
Watermarx was chosen from among hundreds of international submissions, the Cox Architecture Sydney “launch invite” stood out to judges for the fine detail that our CLIQX technology was able to achieve on this unique piece. The technical aspect of this category relates to difficulty and skill. Thanks to CLIQX we were able to get an amazing result in the line work of the embossed floor plan design featured on the invite.

This is the 3rd FSEA Award handed out to pieces we have created using CLIQX. In 2013 we were thrilled to learn that our efforts had been recognized with gold in the Embossing and Letterpress in JUST US Edition II. Watermarx also won a bronze for a letterpress foil stamped and embossed business cards in 2012.
Up against some serious global players in the print and embellishing world, we’re very excited to have been recognized by the awards. It’s an exciting honor, and with the same COX invitation submitted to the National Print Awards here in May, we have our fingers crossed for another accolade for CLIQX! Stay tuned.
