Whether it's a Valentine's Day card or a video game you bought for your kid, a foil stamped and/or embossed image will catch your eye. The use of foil stamping, embossing and holography represents quality, added value, shelf presence, individuality and security. To promote and acknowledge continued creativity in this area, the Foil Stamping and Embossing Assn. (FSEA) (Topeka, KS) honored the winners of its annual Gold Leaf Awards competition at a banquet March 4, 2006, during the FSEA Annual Convention in San Antonio, TX.

Entries were judged on design (creativity), execution (technical excellence) and level of difficulty. One gold, silver and bronze leaf were awarded in each of the 13 categories, with one “Best of Show” chosen from all the gold leaf recipients. A sampling of the gold leaf winners follows.
