Diamond Packaging Wins Four Awards in 2019 Packaging Impressions Excellence Awards Competition
Awards showcase Diamond's capabilities, including cold foiling, specialty coatings, and sustainable technologies.
Diamond won three awards for Inter Parfums' Anna Sui Fantasia Mermaid packaging, including First Place in the "Folding Cartons – Offset" category, Second Place in the "Sustainability – Folding Cartons" category, and Third Place overall in Best of Show.
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.
The overall DiamondTouch soft touch coating adds an appealing tactile quality that promotes consumer interaction. The UV gloss spot coating is tightly registered to the embossed accents and provides a striking contrast to the overall matte finish surrounding it.
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 blends 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.
The combination of color and textures beautifully complement the design of the primary container – a glass spray bottle decorated with an ornate silver cap topped with a mermaid. It also adds distinction and reinforces Fantasia as a fun, whimsical brand.
Diamond won First Place in the "Specialty – Technical Achievement"
The "Making Waves" calendar, which was conceptualized, planned, and produced by the entire Diamond team, originates from a beautiful, hand-drawn pencil drawing. The 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 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.
