Diamond Packaging won three awards in the 29th annual packagePRINTING Excellence Awards comprising sectors such as tags and labels, flexible packaging, folding cartons, and corrugated cartons. Winners were chosen from hundreds of entries submitted in over 40 categories.
The entries were judged on print quality, functionality, and secondary converting and finishing attributes.
Of the awards, Diamond won Second Place in the Sustainability – Folding Cartons and Folding Cartons – Offset categories for Elizabeth Arden’s Green Tea Cucumber carton.
The carton was converted utilizing Tullis Russell Trucard 0 matt recycled paperboard and offset printed with four color process and two Pantone Matching System inks, in-line with ultra violet matte and DiamondEmboss specialty coating.
The coating enhances the logo and text, and provides a striking contrast to the matte finish surrounding it. Tightly registered multi-level embossed accents (cucumber slices, flower petals, logos, and text) complement the eye-catching graphics.
Trucard 0 matt recycled was chosen for its aesthetic and performance characteristics and sustainability attributes.
It is a premium quality uncoated, mixed sources board containing a minimum of 50% Forest Stewardship Council approved de-inked post-consumer fiber.
The cartons were manufactured using 100% clean, renewable wind energy and produced in a Zero Manufacturing Waste to Landfill facility.
