Plastex and Bellissima DMS to leave a stamp on Labelexpo 2023

Press Release – 11.09.2023 

International prepress software company, Hamillroad Software is proud to announce that Plastex s.r.o, their Bellissima DMS trade shop in Slovakia, saw their customer ‘Codex’ being nominated for two prestigious and highly coveted FlexoTech Awards for their Hungarian Christmas 2022 postage stamps, printed using Bellissima DMS. Plastex produced the printing plates for the Christmas stamp featuring Carlo Maratta’s classicist artwork, “The Birth of Jesus,” designed by graphic artist Attila André Elekes. The stamps were printed by Codex Securities Printing Company in Hungary. 

This remarkable accomplishment has earned Codex two nominations at the FlexoTech Awards 2023 for Best Labels (process) and Best Newcomer categories. The winners will be announced at the esteemed FlexoTech 2023 Awards on 11 October this year at the Royal Lancaster in London. 

Although Hungarian postage stamps have historically been printed using 4-color offset, advances in flexography and Bellissima’s unique screening are paving the way for a new era in printing stamps. Plastex has proven that anything is possible in flexo, and the level of image detail they have achieved is simply outstanding.

Plastex provided a solution to their customer, Codex, by addressing the intricate requirements of security stamp printing through flexographic methods.

Klaudia Maňúrová, Production Manager for Plastex said: “Stamps, though small in size, require graphics that are not only clearly visible but also easily readable. When graphics are magnified 5-10 times their original size, tiny details can be lost and flexo has previously struggled to overcome the complex demands of printing stamps. That has all changed with Bellissima’s Ultra High-Definition printing capabilities and we’ve been able to reproduce these special design elements and achieve exceptional image fidelity.”

Jane Petrucci, Head of Marketing for Hamillroad and Bellissima DMS said: “We are so impressed with the outstanding results we are seeing Plastex and Codex produce with Bellissima DMS and delighted to see them winning business by converting jobs from litho to flexo. They are true leaders in the field of flexo printing.”
