Diamond Packaging Wins Three Awards in 2020 Packaging Impressions Excellence Awards Competition
Awards showcase Diamond's capabilities, including cold foiling, specialty coatings, and sustainable technologies.
Diamond won First Place in the "Sustainability Category – Folding Cartons" category for its 2020 corporate calendar, a popular promotional item given to customers.
The 2020 "Making Music" calendar pays tribute to an American icon – the electric guitar. The inspiration?
Tightly-registered UV coatings enhance the design and highlight the individual guitar components. High gloss UV spot coating accentuates the beautiful walnut finish on the guitar body. Satin and matte UV coatings on the amp provide a striking contrast to the gloss accents.
Cold foil delivers shimmering metallic effects on the guitar's tuning pegs, strings, frets, pick-ups, pickguard, and vibrato tailpiece. Rainbow holographic cold foil enhances the pearl inlays.
All guitar components were embossed, while debossed sound holes add realism to the guitar body. The amplifier features a leather embossed pattern and embossed knobs that simulate the real thing.
Diamond won First Place in the "Folding Cartons – Offset" category for Procter & Gamble's Crest Gum and Breath Purify Healthy White packaging.
Overprinting transparent inks over holographic cold foil creates shimmering metallic effects on the Crest logo, intersecting radial pattern, and text. The UV gloss spot coating is registered to the foil embossed areas and provides a striking contrast to the overall matte finish surrounding it.
The horizontal pillars holographic foil is also used to great effect on the tooth illustration outline and product benefits call-outs on the side panel.
Multi-level embossed foil accents add dimension and provide an upscale appearance unique to personal care products.
Diamond won Third Place in the "Folding Cartons – Offset" category for Procter & Gamble's GLEEM Professional Teeth Whitening Light Kit packaging.
Overprinting process inks over cold foil creates shimmering blue metallic effects that catch the eye and invite closer inspection. Multi-level embossed and debossed accents add depth and dimension.
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.
