Diamond Packaging Wins Four Awards in 2022 Paperboard Packaging Competition
Diamond Packaging announced that it won four awards in the 2022 North American Paperboard Packaging Competition, the competition for carton manufacturers involved in the concept, design, print, performance, and shelf appeal of paperboard packaging. Awards were presented last month during the 2022 Fall Meeting & Leadership Conference in Austin, Texas.
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.
“On behalf of the Paperboard Packaging Council, I congratulate all of this year’s deserving winners,” said Ben Markens, President of PPC. “To be recognized in our competition is a feat, demonstrating mastery in design, manufacturing, distribution, shelf presence, and much more. It is a true stamp of excellence.”
Diamond won an Excellence Award: Sustainability in the Cosmetics category for Caldera + Lab’s The Clean Slate packaging.
The folding cartons were converted utilizing FSC-certified Neenah 100 PC White Vellum paperboard – made with 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) fiber – and offset printed with process black and PMS inks, in-line with UV matte coating. The inside was printed with custom black and PMS inks, in-line with UV matte coating.
The graphic design incorporates clean, simple graphics and a color palette reminiscent of the natural tones in the American West. Vertical columns of alternating, italicized text span the panels and create visual interest.
An embossed logo block on the front panel adds depth and dimension along with an appealing tactile quality that promotes consumer interaction.
Diamond won an Excellence Award in the Cosmetics category for Inter Parfums' Oscar de la Renta Alibi packaging.
The folding cartons were converted utilizing Clearwater Candesce SBS paperboard, cold foiled, and offset printed with custom gold and process black inks, in-line with UV gloss coating, and aqueous matte coating. Overprinting transparent gold ink over foil creates shimmering metallic effects.
The graphic design incorporates an overall embossed leather pattern with exquisite stitching detail inspired by the fashion brand’s Alibi handbag with its signature lock clasp. The debossed Oscar de la Renta logo framed by an embossed white block on the front panel adds dimension and contributes to a unique visual and tactile presentation.
The combination of colors and textures beautifully complement the design of the primary container – a thick-walled flacon with clean structural lines highlighting the fragrance within, topped with a gold-colored cap.
Diamond won an Excellence Award: Sustainability in the Pharmaceutical/Healthcare category for P&G’s Crest 3D Whitestrips Radiant Express packaging.
The trapezoid-shaped folding cartons were converted utilizing Clearwater Candesce SBS paperboard, cold foiled, and offset printed with four color process, opaque white, and three PMS inks, in-line with DiamondTouch soft touch coating.
