COLOP wins double Oscar of the creative industry for its e-mark® go and LaDot Cosmetics stamps

The Creative Impulse Award is a permanent fixture at Creativeworld. It has developed into the most prestigious prize in the hobby, craft and artists' supplies sector. In 2023, there were 54 entries, which show the innovative power of this industry. On the first day of the fair, 4 February 2023, the festive awards ceremony took place on the stage of the Creative Academy in Hall 1.1. All in all, the competent jury of experts chose three winners in each of five categories. COLOP won first and second place in the popular category "Creative Product of the Year".


1st place e-mark® go

Based on inkjet technology, the e-mark go enables multi-coloured prints on almost all absorbent surfaces, such as paper, cardboard, cork, wood, stone, leather and much more. The creative companion is controlled via a newly developed app. The handy mobile printer impressed the jury with its large selection of predefined motifs, as well as the wide range of options for creating individual designs in the intuitive editor of the e-mark go app. It is even possible to load your own designs into the app as jpg or png files. Once the creative design is complete, the motif can be printed on various objects with a simple sideways movement. Also highlighted was the creative uses, such as printing on ribbons, labels, signs, even goose feathers, printing in bullet journals, designing greeting cards and much more.


2nd La Dot Cosmetics Stempel – Temporary Tattoos

LaDot stamps are suitable for all those who would like to decorate their skin with great designs, but do not want to have permanent tattoos. Whether on the beach, on holiday, at the next festival - with LaDot everyone can express their individual style. LaDot stamps stand for an authentic look without a lifelong commitment. Depending on your mood and the occasion, you can always choose a new tattoo. A concept that also convinced the jury of the Creative Impulse Award.

Heinz Angerlehner (Head of Marketing COLOP Digital) and Jacques Ahn (Managing Director COLOP Arts & Crafts) agree: "The two awards are not only a reason to be proud, but also an incentive to enrich the industry with our creative product innovations and to set unique accents".
