Diamond Packaging Wins Five Packaging Awards
ROCHESTER, NY—November 14, 2013—Diamond Packaging won five awards, including Folding Carton of the Year, in the 70th Annual North American Paperboard Packaging Competition, the industry’s premier showcase for all that is new and outstanding in paperboard packaging design and technology. Awards were presented last month at the PPC Fall Meeting Leadership Conference in Dallas, TX.
The competition, sponsored by the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) and judged by a jury of packaging professionals, industry experts, professors and magazine publishers, is a celebration of the industry and its creative potential. It is also an affirmation of paperboard as the clear and intelligent choice for packaging in today’s eco-conscious world.
Diamond won the Folding Carton of the Year Award for Elizabeth Arden’s Limited Edition Sunflowers packaging. The overall presentation imparts unusual depth and distinction through creative design, material selection, UV matte and gloss spot coating, embossing and debossing.
The carton was converted utilizing Neenah Paper Royal Sundance Ultra White Felt textured paperboard and offset printed with three PMS colors and dense black inks, in-line with UV matte and UV gloss spot coating.
UV matte coating contributes to the natural aesthetic of the Sunflowers carton and provides a striking contrast to the UV gloss spot coating used on the front panel text and sunflower graphic.
The graphics were enhanced with embossed sunflower petals on the front and rear panels, and debossed text on the side panels, contributing to a unique visual and tactile presentation that stands out in the crowded retail environment.
Diamond won a Gold Award for the L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power Moisturizer carton.
The carton was converted utilizing Iggesund Invercote G premium paperboard and offset printed with four color process, two PMS colors, opaque white and transparent gold metallic inks, in-line with UV matte and UV gloss spot coating.
Foil stamping with matte coating enhances the front, side, and top panels. A secondary gloss foil stamp on the front and side panels provides a striking contrast to the matte finish surrounding it. Decorative embossing enhances the L’Oreal logo on the front and top panels.
