Repacorp, Inc. Wins PSDA 2010 PEAK Award

PEAK competition recognizes the best in printing industry

Phoenix, AZ, 4/5/2010 — Repacorp, Inc. has been awarded the PEAK Grand Award in the Screen Printing category.

Print Excellence And Knowledge (PEAK) Awards competition spotlights companies that not only meet customers’ printing needs through creativity in design, manufacturing, fulfillment and other services, but also solves problems or improves business functions.

“Your work is among the best in our industry and we are happy to present you with this honor,” writes PSDA Print Solutions Magazine in a recent email to Loren Harkrider, plant manger of Repacorp’s screen and large format digital printing division.

Repacorp won the Grand PEAK Award for the screen-printed flexible vinyl cover of the Neil Young Diary. The replica of Neil Young’s personal journal is Smyth-sewn with a 6-color silk-screen print. A white base coat was applied before 4-color process printing and the color was sealed with a matte clear coat. Texture was applied by radio frequency debossing. To view the diary, please visit  www.repacorp.com/awards/peakaward.htm.

“When your employees come through and deliver such an exceptional product to their customer, it shows that they are at the PEAK of the competition,” said Rick Heinl, President of Repacorp, Inc. “I am honored to be recognized by the Grand PEAK Award, and I am very proud to see our employees recognized by such a great award. Congratulations to all involved in this project and for making all Repacorp employees proud.”

Repacorp Inc. will be recognized during the PEAK Awards Lunch Presentation at the 2010 Print Solutions Conference & Expo on May 24, 2010.

RFID Application—Conference & Expo Name Badges

Repacorp’s RFID 4-color process tags were the star of a recent Conference & Expo.  Repacorp’s ability to print up to 6 colors prior to insertion enabled the name badges to be branded with the Conference and Expo’s logo.  When participants walked through the doors of the Conference & Expo with their name badges, the RFID chips recorded who attended, their company, date, time, and other pertinent information about the attendee. RFID readers at the booth level eliminated the need for scanning cards.

Tool Free Cutting System

Labels cut special shape

Due to our proprietary cutting system, we do not charge for dies. Our tool-free cutting method allows us to cut any desired shape—just provide a die line with your artwork.

With the ability to produce labels any shape imaginable, Repacorp has enabled designers to create labels that stand out on the shelves.  With digital short label runs (no plates or dies), it is now very cost effective to test designs in marketing research or update the look of a product’s label.
