ROCHESTER, NY – November 26, 2019 – Diamond Packaging today announced that it won three awards in the 76th annual North American Paperboard Packaging Competition, the premier competition for carton manufacturers involved in the concept, design, print, performance, and shelf appeal of paperboard packaging. Awards were presented last month at the PPC 2019 Fall Meeting and Leadership Conference in Minneapolis, MN.

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 more sustainable choice for packaging in today’s eco-conscious world.

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.

Diamond won an Excellence Award in the “Cosmetics” category for Inter Parfums’ Sui Dreams in Purple by Anna Sui packaging.

The folding cartons were converted utilizing FSC-certified Ecological Fibers Flexpack Lumina Pearlescent paperboard and offset printed with seven PMS inks, in-line with satin aqueous coating.

Ecological Fibers Flexpack Lumina Pearlescent paperboard was chosen for its luxurious finish and environmental attributes. The Kraft board features a protective, water-based, luminescent top coat and a proprietary embossing pattern created specifically for Inter Parfums. The FSC-certified mixed sources paperboard was made with 20% post-consumer waste (PCW) fibers.

The printed ombré design seamlessly blends purple, pink, yellow, and green inks, creating a luxurious gradient background for the hot foil stamped and embossed accents.

The artwork incorporates frequency modulated (FM) screening. FM screening varies the number of dots, as opposed to amplitude modulated (AM) screening, which varies the size of the dot. The 20-micron FM dot eliminated all issues related to screen angles, resulting in smoother vignettes and softer color-to-color transition not possible with traditional four-color process printing.

The overall satin aqueous coating provides a striking contrast to the gloss of the gold foil.

The embossed logo and floral pattern on the front and top panels add dimension and contribute to a unique visual and tactile presentation.

The combination of color and textures beautifully complement the design of the primary container – a semi-translucent glass spray bottle shaped like a handbag and topped with a satin gold cap.

Diamond won an Excellence Award in the “Pharmaceutical/Healthcare” category for Iovate's Hydoxycut Ultra Lean packaging.

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

The overall soft touch coating adds an appealing tactile quality that promotes consumer interaction. The UV gloss spot coating is tightly registered to the embossed and blind embossed accents and provides a striking contrast to the overall matte finish surrounding it.

DiamondSparkle specialty vignette glitter decorative technique creates shimmering tactile metallic effects that catch the eye and invite closer inspection.

Embossed accents (logos, medallion) add distinction and reinforce Hydroxycut as a premium brand.

Diamond also won an Excellence Award in the “Pharmaceutical/Healthcare” 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 unique 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.

Embossed accents (logo, white strip) add dimension and provide an upscale appearance unique to personal care products.
