Diamond won First Place in the “Sustainability – Folding Cartons” category for Procter & Gamble’s Secret Clinical Strength packaging. The folding carton was converted utilizing Clearwater Candesce SBS paperboard, cold foiled, and offset printed with six color inks, in-line with DiamondTouch soft touch coating, and UV gloss spot coating.
Candesce SBS was chosen due to its aesthetic and performance characteristics and the fact that it is 100% recyclable and made from a renewable resource.
The UV gloss spot coating on the Secret logo and swoosh lines provides a striking contrast to the overall matte soft touch finish surrounding it. The DiamondTouch soft touch coating adds an appealing tactile quality that promotes consumer interaction.
Diamond won Second Place in the “Sustainability – Folding Cartons” category for Elizabeth Arden's Viva La Juicy Sucré packaging. The folding carton was converted utilizing FSC-certified Iggesund Invercote G paperboard, cold foiled, and offset printed with pink, transparent gold, and process black inks, in-line with UV gloss spot coating.
Invercote G was chosen for its smooth surface that is tailored to faithfully reproduce the most sophisticated printed images and meet the high demands of flawless foil stamping and embossing. The tightly-registered UV gloss spot coating on the pink stripes and Sucré logo provides a striking contrast to the overall matte finish surrounding it.
Diamond won two awards, including First Place in the “Specialty – Technical Achievement” category and Third Place in the “Sustainability – Folding Cartons” category, for its 2017 calendar, a promotional item given to customers and suppliers.
Diamond won Third Place in the “Folding Cartons – Offset” category for Iovate Health Sciences International’s HydroxyCut Max for Women packaging.
All of Diamond’s winning entries were manufactured using 100% clean, renewable wind energy and produced in a Zero Manufacturing Waste to Landfill (ZMWL) facility.
