Hazen Holographic Calendar Wins Award at IHMA International Event

Trade industry body International Hologram Manufacturers Association (IHMA) has announced that a new eye-catching holographic calendar has won the “Best Applied Decorative/Packaging Product” category at the Excellence in Holography Awards 2020, organized by the association.

The calendar, from USA’s Hazen Paper Company, features a number of holographic innovations to create an “outstanding” decorative design. These include Hazen-lenses set behind the date and month windows, a gray motion background sky and a color variant for the dragon’s body, and dual lenses to create a flame effect.

The award was presented by the IHMA at this year’s virtual Holography Conference (Dec. 8-9), reflecting a “significant step forward” in the ongoing development of highly innovative holography solutions for commercial packaging and decorative finishes and applications.

The Excellence in Holography event recognizes outstanding achievement, marking success for those at the forefront of the sector who have developed innovative or commercially viable hologram products or techniques during the past 12 months.

Involving sector suppliers, manufacturers and end-users from around the world, the event, held for the first time online because of the pandemic, saw Dr. Paul Dunn, chair of the IHMA, commend the standard of entries as extremely high.
