ROCHESTER, NY – October 16, 2019 – Diamond Packaging today announced that it won five awards in Printing Impressions magazine’s 32nd annual Gold Ink Awards competition, the industry's most prestigious print competition. Winners were chosen from nearly 600 entries submitted in 47 different categories. Entries were judged on print quality, technical difficulty, and overall visual effect.

Diamond won a Bronze Award in the “Folding Cartons” category for Splintek’s SleepRight Ultra-Comfort Dental Guard packaging.

The folding cartons were converted utilizing WestRock Tango® SBS paperboard, cold foiled, and offset printed with four color process and opaque white inks, in-line with aqueous gloss and UV gloss spot coating.

Overprinting transparent inks over a custom rainbow holographic cold foil adds depth and dimension to the multi-faceted graphic design.

Hot foil stamping the inside rear panel provides a brilliant, mirror-like finish behind the clear thermoform tray holding the product. The combination creates a three-dimensional effect that makes the product appear to 'float' within the carton. Embossed accents (logo, medallion, diamond) contribute to the upscale appearance.

Diamond won a Pewter Award in the “Folding Cartons” category for Inter Parfums’ Anna Sui Fantasia Mermaid packaging.

The folding cartons were converted utilizing FSC-certified Iggesund Invercote G paperboard and offset printed with seven PMS and custom color inks, in-line with DiamondTouch and UV gloss spot coating.

Overprinting transparent champagne rose gold ink over cold foil creates shimmering metallic effects on the panels and perimeter of the carton. The custom turquoise ombré design seamlessly transitions from dark to light, creating a luxurious gradient background for the gloss and embossed accents.

Multi-level embossing (mermaid, shells, seahorses, starfish, plants) add dimension and contribute to a unique visual and tactile presentation.

Diamond won a Pewter Award in the “Folding Cartons” category for Parlux Fragrances’ Tommy Bahama Island Life packaging.

The folding cartons were converted utilizing Clearwater Candesce® SBS paperboard and offset printed (on the back side of the board) with four color process and brown inks, in-line with UV matte coating. Printing on the back side of SBS combined with an overall matte UV coating creates a striking contrast to the gloss of the gold foil.


The graphic design incorporates soft gradients and an overall pattern that simulates rattan. Inside printing reprises the familiar swordfish logo.

The subtle overall embossed pattern adds texture to the packaging. The hot foil stamped and embossed accents on the front and top panels add distinction and reinforce Tommy Bahama as a prestige brand.

Diamond won a Pewter Award in the “Folding Cartons” category for Procter & Gamble’s Crest 3D Whitestrips Professional White packaging.

The folding cartons were converted utilizing Clearwater Candesce® SBS paperboard, cold foiled, and offset printed with seven color inks, in-line with UV matte and UV gloss spot coating.

The trapezoidal structure beckons from the shelf and instantly differentiates itself from the competition. The die cut windows on each side panel allow the consumer to see the product inside.

Overprinting transparent inks over a custom “Pillars of Light” holographic cold foil creates shimmering, colorful metallic effects that catch the eye and invite closer inspection. Embossed accents (logo, white strip) add dimension and provide an upscale appearance unique to personal care products.

Diamond won a Bronze Award in the “Calendars” category for its 2019 corporate calendar, a popular promotional item given to customers and suppliers.

The “Making Waves” calendar features Extended Color Gamut (ECG) seven-color process printing, cold foiling, UV gloss spot coating, DiamondGlitter and DiamondReticulate specialty coatings, multi-level embossing, debossing, intricate die cutting, and NFC smart tagging.

All of Diamond’s winning entries were designed utilizing recyclable paperboards and manufactured using 100% clean, renewable wind energy, in a Zero Waste to Landfill (ZWL) facility.
