Sep 12, 2023 | News

TVF, a 100% employee-owned, leading global textile supplier, has won two textile awards from the PRINTING United Alliance 2023 Pinnacle Product Awards competition. A TVF print media fabric, 3.2 oz. Jet Flag 6144GS, and an apparel fabric, our 4.7 oz. Polyester Raptor, have been selected by printing industry judges for honors in Non-Output Device categories. 

Announced in the weeks before the annual PRINTING United Expo (TVF will be in Booth #C2905 October 18-20), the Pinnacle Product Awards recognize products that improve or advance the printing industry with exceptional contributions in quality, capability, and productivity. 

“We’re honored to once again have multiple fabrics selected as winners for Pinnacle Product Awards,” says TVF Program Director for Apparel & Home Décor Brian Vieweg. “Both Jet Flag and Raptor stand out for their consistency and printability, so customers know when they use these materials, their jobs will include brilliant printing results that will stand up to the demands of their applications. We look forward to showcasing these award-winning fabrics at this year’s PRINTING United Expo in Atlanta.” 

Jet Flag from TVF is an open knit, lightweight fabric with great durability and print-through capability. Its open mesh knit makes this preshrunk fabric ideal for see-through applications. This polyester is compatible with direct disperse and dye sublimation paper transfer (dye sub) inks and is ideal for flags, point of purchase displays, window treatments, and trade show exhibits. Jet Flag is being honored this year in the Media – Textile – Flag awards category. 

Raptor provides great weight, comfort, and reliability for activewear and athleisure applications, thanks to its construction and minimum snagging and pilling risk. Compatible with dye sub printing, this UPF50 wicking fabric is engineered for sports jerseys, athleisure, and yoga apparel applications. Raptor is being honored this year in the Media – Textile – Apparel awards category. 

“One of the things I like best about our competition is that it is juried, and judges are basing their decisions on objective criteria,” said Dawn Nye, Program Manager Pinnacle Awards, PRINTING United Alliance. “And with outstanding entries like Jet Flag and Raptor, they had their work cut out for them.” 

The Pinnacle Product Award competition evaluates products that will be available for sale in 2023. The panel of accomplished industry judges selected winners like Jet Flag and Raptor in nearly 60 categories from over 160 entries spanning analog, digital, output, and non-output technologies.
