The Finishing School

Celloglas Sponsor the PPA New Talent Awards & Create Unique Print Finished Decorations

The PPA New Talent Awards celebrate the brightest new stars in UK consumer magazines and business media. This high-profile event is run by the industry, providing a platform to recognise the exceptional individuals who are establishing and developing their careers working on magazine and business information brands.

Celloglas became a formal member of the PPA (Professional Publishers Association) in October 2013 and offered their services to the ceremony by creating uniquely designed table numbers and bottle neck toppers especially for the evening, as well as sponsoring the category of ‘New Designer of the Year’.

The designs were created onto a black silk Mirri board – with the table numbers being printed using white ink and a matt spot UV on the Celloglas in-house Roland DG LEJ-640, and the bottle neck toppers being foiled with a silver foil and then gloss spot UV at the Celloglas Reading factory.

The wide range of finishing options and services that Celloglas can provide to the publishing sector include; foil blocking, screen varnishes (including glitter, spot UV, fragrance burst, silver latex & Photochromic inks), overall UV, as well as a variety of lamination options.

As part of the evening, and in honour of the Oscars world-breaking selfie, the PPA challenged the New Talent audience to deliver a ‘selfie’ of truly Twitter-crashing fabulousness and they certainly weren’t let down with numerous excellent entries!

The 2014 winners were revealed at a glittering ceremony at The Brewery on March 4 hosted by Mark Frith.
