The Association For Creative Industries (AFCI), the international trade association for the design, manufacture, distribution and retail sales of creative arts products, announced the winners of its popular New Product Awards.
In January 2019 at Creativation, AFCI’s international conference and trade show, manufacturers from all over the world submitted new and innovative retail products in the Show’s New Product Showcase. The judges, consisting of leading industry buyers, influencers and editors, selected the winners based on what makes the product unique, how the product will improve the crafter’s overall experience, and the interest and excitement the product generates for those outside of the crafting community.
The New Product Winners for 2019 are:
FOIL QUILL by American Crafts/We R Memory Keepers
The Foil Quill heat pen allows you to foil projects using your electronic cutting machine! Simply insert the Foil Quill into your machine and foil any design with precision. It works great on paper, chipboard, vinyl, leather and more. With multiple tip sizes and dozens of foil colors, the customization is endless.
MACHINE WASHABLE PICTURE BUTTONS by Winky&Dutch
These new patent pending machine washable picture buttons are the first innovation in sew on buttons in more than 50 years. Each button is handcrafted in the United States.
ADTECH DRIP-LESS GLUE GUN by AdTech
The DRIP-LESS glue guns are a joy to use! The patent pending multi-chamber design reduces dripping and stringing, while providing a top-notch gluing experience with more power, faster heating time, ergonomic design, specially engineered nozzles and precise three-finger trigger.
