Contra Vision: Continuing Innovation in See-through Graphics

Contra Vision North America, Inc., has been recognized for Innovative Product of 2013 at the 2013 SGIA Expo for the company’s continuing innovation and new product development. The SGIA Product of the Year award was chosen and presented at the SGIA 2013 Expo in Orlando, Florida in October, with Contra Vision® Sprint™ winning the category of “Media for Inkjet Vinyl, Pressure Sensitive.” The annual competition honors the latest equipment and supplies on the market that play a key role in advancing the specialty imaging industry.

Roland Hill, president of Contra Vision North America, Inc. (pictured), commented, ‘I am very proud to receive this award. As innovators of see-through graphics since 1985 it is a great pleasure to still be recognized as a market leader. We are the only licensed supplier of this type of printable adhesive, Applied Inside™ perforated window film, which is the subject of one of Contra Vision's twenty-seven inventions patented or patent-pending in this field and a U.S. patent owned by Sanryu Co Ltd.

Entries to the competition came from 55 companies from across the world, with 102 entries in 21 categories with the submissions representing some of the industry’s most innovative digital products; the SGIA show provided the perfect venue for discussing and evaluating the entries.

Contra Vision® Sprint™ is provided with a printable adhesive that is low tack and ideally suited to P-O-P advertising, being applied to the inside of retail windows or entrance doors and is repositionable and easy to apply by store staff, not requiring a trained applicator.
