ROCHESTER, NY | Diamond Packaging earned three awards in the 61st annual Premier Print Awards Competition, sponsored by the Printing Industries of America.
Diamond was recognized in the Environmentally Sound category for its 2010 corporate calendar, said to demonstrate Diamond's expertise in sustainable packaging design through right sizing, material selection, and the use of MiraFoil coating, described as an economical, in-line alternative to foil stamping. It uses no heavy metals and results in less material and energy usage compared to an off-line foil stamping process. Diamond also reduced overall calendar weight through resizing.
Godiva's 2009 Halloween Collection earned Diamond honors in the Finishing Techniques (Specialty Inks or Coatings) category. The tuck top, auto bottom, and full seal end cartons feature a combination of die-cutting and special coating techniques that complement the Halloween-inspired graphic design. The cartons were offset printed with four-color process inks and two hits of PMS #4975 in-line with UV gloss spot coating and an overall textured (reticulated) coating. The reticulated coating imparts a raised, thermographic-like textured finish without utilizing specialized board or requiring a separate embossing pass.
Diamond's third award was in the Cartons and Containers category for L'Oreal USA/Matrix' 2009 Holiday Collection, displayed at fine hair salons nationwide. All cartons feature a custom gold glitter, pearl-coated paperboard that captures the essence of luxury. The graphics are enhanced by decorative foil stamping on the front and side panels.
