Stout Screenprinters Score National Acclaim
You’re probably not familiar with flexography, thought you see it every day. It’s a printing process that uses a flexible plate to transfer an image to packaging. Stout seniors Aaron Brice and Ashley Raymond have won state and national awards for their work in flexography for the Menomonie-based shirt screenprinting company Ambient Vision Inks (full disclosure: they print many Local Store products). As a part of a class project, the pair designed a label for the company’s packaging boxes. The label is a simple, two-color design, but it’s the message that the two believe impressed the judges. Brice and Raymond will accept the Excellence in Flexography award at the Flexographic Technical Association annual forum in Indianapolis. They also won a similar award for the project from the Printing Industries of Wisconsin.
