Rochester, NY – Diamond Packaging today announced the debut of its 2022 corporate calendar, a popular promotional item given to customers and suppliers. The calendar showcases many of Diamond’s capabilities, including multi-color UV printing, cold foiling, UV gloss spot coating, multi-level embossing, and debossing.
“This year's calendar celebrates the company's sustainability and conservation efforts through its partnership with the Seneca Park Zoo in Rochester, NY,” said Dennis Bacchetta, director of marketing of Diamond Packaging. “Diamond has a long-standing relationship with the zoo and proudly supports the organization through donations, participation in their Environmental Innovation Awards, and annual Earth Day events.”
The header features Roycroft Renaissance Master Artisan Laura Wilder’s “Animals of the Savanna” print commissioned by the Seneca Park Zoo. It commemorates the Animals of the Savanna Exhibit expansion, which features Masai giraffes, zebras, ostriches, a southern white rhino, and over a dozen other species.
The calendars were converted utilizing Clearwater ReMagine™ 30% PCW paperboard, cold foiled, and offset printed with four color process inks, in-line with UV matte, aqueous, and soft touch coatings.
Tightly-registered coatings were used to enhance the design and highlight the individual calendar components. UV matte coating was used on the trees, grass, and animals. Aqueous coating was used on the sky and backgrounds to add contrast. Soft touch coating adds a tactile effect to the giraffe and zebra.
Cold foil delivers shimmering metallic effects on the 2022 and Diamond Packaging text in the bottom backer.
Multi-level embossing lends distinction and depth to the design. Many of the header components were embossed, including the iron gates, trees, animals, and text. Subtle debossing frames the entire calendar. Select backers components (including the lion, rhino, elephants, and Seneca Park Zoo text) were also embossed to add more depth and realism.
The calendar pages were converted utilizing Domtar Cougar Natural Smooth 80# Text paper and offset printed with four color process inks and UV matte coating. The watermarks continue the image printed on each of the three panels underneath. The unique finish and subtle colors beautifully complement the design concept.
The recyclable shipper was converted utilizing Clearwater Candesce® SBS paperboard laminated to E-flute corrugated fiberboard, and offset printed with four color process inks, in-line with and aqueous gloss coating. It is artfully decorated with the custom giraffe pattern from Laura Wilder's “Animals of the Savanna” print.
The calendar header and backer components were converted utilizing Clearwater ReMagine™ paperboard made with 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) fiber and manufactured using 100% clean, renewable wind energy in a Zero Waste to Landfill (ZWL) and Carbon Neutral (Scope 1 and Scope 2) facility.
