16th Annual pP Excellence Awards
Inland Paperboard and Packaging's Domaine Chandon Blanc de Noirs stood its ground in pP's 16th Annual Excellence Awards competition, notching out a first place and Best of Show.
THE PACKAGING FOR Domaine Chandon Blanc de Noirs goes to show that sometimes, bigger is better.
Standing at about 75˝ tall, Inland Paperboard and Packaging (a Temple-Inland Co.) designed this display packaging to draw on the wine's deep colors and unique style. Like many of this year's entries, the Chandon package stood out as one of the industry's best. "Considering the size and complexity of this job, the printer held amazing register," commented Excellence Awards Judge Cordes Porcher, senior technical service rep. (graphics), Board Sales Division, Smurfit-Stone Container. "The bar has been raised—yet again!" Before winning the judges' overwhelming support for the Best of Show award, the Domaine Chandon package raked in enough points in the Corrugated (Preprint)—Flexo (Process) category to edge past Packaging Technologies' Apple & Eve submission. Additionally, Inland's Coors packaging took first place in the Corrugated (Preprint)—Flexo (Line) category.
