Rochester, NY – Diamond Packaging today announced that it won three awards in the 75th 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 2018 Fall Meeting and Leadership Conference in Atlanta, GA.
The competition, sponsored by the Paperboard Packaging Council (PPC) and judged by a jury of packaging professionals, industry experts, and professors, 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 a Pewter Award in the “Cosmetics” category for Laura Mercier’s Exotique Face Illuminator packaging.
The folding cartons were converted utilizing metallized polyester board and offset printed with four PMS colors and opaque white inks, with UV gloss and UV matte coating.
The multi-level embossed tiger pattern is tightly registered to the dark brown ink and provides a stunning contrast to the copper finish surrounding it. The debossed section on the front panel provides an ideal backdrop for the embossed Laura Mercier brand logo and product name.
The combination of color and textures beautifully complement the design of the primary container – a dark brown oversized compact encasing a multi-toned, multidimensional highlighting powder.
Diamond won a Pewter Award in the “Pharmaceutical/Healthcare” category for Procter & Gamble’s Crest 3D White Whitening Therapy packaging.
The folding cartons were converted utilizing Clearwater Candesce® SBS paperboard, cold foiled, and offset printed with six color inks, UV matte, and UV gloss spot coating.
The UV gloss spot coating is registered to the holographic hot foil stamping pattern and provides a striking contrast to the overall matte finish surrounding it.
Overprinting transparent inks over cold foil creates shimmering metallic effects on the Crest logo.
Foil embossed (Crest logo, hexagons) and debossed (Whitening Therapy) accents add dimension and provide an upscale appearance unique to personal care products.
Diamond won a Pewter Award in the “Cosmetics” category for Tarte Cosmetics’ Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette packaging.
The folding cartons were converted utilizing metallized polyester board and offset printed with four color process, rose gold, purple, and opaque white inks, with UV gloss and UV matte coating.
The exquisite, multi-level blind embossed crocodile pattern is tightly registered to the front and side panels and provides a stunning background for the company and product logos.
The combination of color and textures complement the design of the primary container – a covetable rose gold embossed compact encasing four bronzing powders and two highlighters.
All of Diamond’s winning entries were manufactured using 100% clean, renewable wind energy and produced in a Zero Waste to Landfill (ZWL) facility.
