FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE FIRECRACKER PRESS WINS BEST NEW PRODUCT AWARD
The Firecracker Press walks away from the National Stationery Show as a standout among many.
SAINT LOUIS, May 29, 2015 The Firecracker Press returned from the National Stationery Show (NSS) in New York City with the distinction of winning “Best New Product”.
NSS attracts an internationally diverse group of buyers from “big box” retailers and department stores, to brick-brick-and-mortar boutiques, and online/mail-order sellers. Each year show organizers invite exhibitors to submit products that are new to the market. Four stationery trade and consumer editors judged nearly six hundred product submissions. Eric Woods, owner stated “there were a total of eight categories, and we were eligible to submit products in four of the eight categories. Since it was our first year exhibiting, we were happy to have been finalists in each of the four categories we entered. The win in the “Paper Love” category was a welcome surprise and we’re thrilled!”
Judges considered innovative product design or concept, how the product answers an industry need, and aesthetic appeal in determining winners. Judges are also looking for creative use of materials and products that have the greatest consumer appeal. The Firecracker Press entered “Moon”, a five-color letterpress greeting card that was printed using hand-carved woodcuts. “The “Moon” card proved to be an attention getter and was a top seller for us at the NSS Show”, stated Missy Knight, Business Manager. The eight award winners, as well as finalists from each category, were showcased in a dedicated area at the show, and winners received glass trophies to recognize their achievement.
“Moon” as well as fifty-eight new products are available for both wholesale and retail purchase at FirecrackerPress.com.
