Awards won by Diamond Packaging
In “Creative Use of Foil/Embossing on a Folding Carton” category, Diamond bagged a Gold Leaf award for its Elizabeth Arden’s White Diamonds Gift Set.
For converting the QuikSet carton, metalized polyester board was used. It was offset printed with transparent purple, transparent gold, opaque white and dense black inks, aligned with high gloss UV coating.
To enhance the beauty of the gift set and reinforce the White Diamonds brand, the product used beautiful dome-embossed pear-shaped and round diamonds along with blind-embossed flower petals.
For its corporate calendar, Diamond won an award in the “Calendar” category. Its stained leaded glass-themed calendar for 2015 blends the old world charm and skill of a hand-drawn design with contemporary finishing touches.
Clearwater Candesce SBS paperboard was utilized to convert the calendar. It was then offset printed with three spot colours and four colour process inks, DiamondTouch aqueous coating, UV gloss spot coating and soft touch coating.
The calendar’s foil embossed, tightly-registered lead outline provides authenticity to the product. It also stands testimony to the type of decorative effect that can promote customers’ brands. All the embossing dyes, heat sealer machines and foil stamping for the calendar were provided by Metal Magic.
For Vicky Tiel Paris 21 Bonaparte Gift Set of Five Star Fragrance Company, Diamond won a Silver Leaf award in the category marked “Best Use of Embossing”. This gift set packaging showcases a sense of luxury and highlights the essence of the celebrated Paris-based American couturier.

In the “Cold Foil (Sheet or Rotary) on Packaging” category, Diamond Packaging was given a Bronze Leaf award. This was for the folding carton it created for L’Oreal Paris Age Perfect Glow Renewal.
