The Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) of Fairfax, Virginia, has recognized supplier Towel Specialties (PPAI 113150) with the Gold Award for Excellence in Digital Decorating on Textiles.

The winning entry was for beach towels that promoted “Froster Beverages” for Circle K. The full color process design featured vibrant images of the multi-colored, frozen Froster drinks. In addition, Towel Specialties received an honorable mention in the same category for blankets with a beautiful mountain and lake scene for Hartford Steam Boilers.

“Towel Specialties has won the Gold Award from SGIA nine times,” says Murray Siegel, marketing director. “What’s exciting about this year is that we were also recognized for our work on blankets. Prior to 2016, we did not even have any blankets in the line that could be digitally decorated. And, prior to 2015, we were not even digitally decorating any products.”

This is the 18th time Towel Specialties has won an award from SGIA.
