LifeArt Scoops Global Accolade for Sustainable Coffin Innovation

15th October 2020 | News

LifeArt has won global recognition for its personalisable, low emission coffins and caskets in a prestigious international awards scheme.

The business, which has operations in the UK, Hong Kong and Australia, scooped Silver in the FESPA Awards 2020’s Packaging on Paper and Board category for an entry titled Final Delivery, which showcased its Heritage Timber and Collections range.

LifeArt’s products are described on the FESPA Awards website as a “perfect sustainable alternative” to wood that “can be printed to almost any finish and design”.

Heritage Timber is a traditional timber effect coffin and casket range, described as so convincing only the environment can tell the difference, whilst the Collections range offers a wide variety of images and colours in order to reflect the diversity of life.

Attracting entries from across the globe, the annual awards are organised by FESPA (Federation of European Screen Printing Associations), the printing industry’s umbrella body.

The winners, who were announced in a virtual ceremony in September, are selected for their hard work, creativity and production expertise.

Kevin Crute, CEO of LifeArt UK & Ireland, said: “We’re thoroughly honoured to achieve recognition in this year’s FESPA Awards and it’s a real testament to the collective hard work and innovative approach by our teams across the world.

“It’s also great to see groundbreaking work within the funeral profession attracting attention outside of our sector. Indeed, this accolade very much fits with LifeArt’s mission to develop new technology and deliver a sustainable generation of traditional and personalisable coffins and caskets that meet the needs of today’s environmentally-aware consumers.”

FESPA’s panel of expert judges reviews hundreds of entries from printers and sign-makers and selects only the best for the honour of a FESPA Award.

It’s FESPA’s mission to champion print excellence and promote the unique power of print. The Awards are just one element of its Profit for Purpose programme, which exists to educate and inspire, encouraging the printing community to connect, share ideas and best practice.
