Diamond Packaging won three awards in the 24th Annual FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Competition, the industry’s premier showcase for foil stamping, embossing, and other specialty effects. Awards were announced last month at the IADD.FSEA Odyssey, held in Schaumburg, IL.
Diamond won a Gold Leaf award in the ‘Most Difficult Use of Foil and Embossing’ category for Five Star Fragrance Company’s Pierre Cardin Choc folding carton. The carton was converted utilizing Iggesund Invercote G paperboard and offset printed with gold and process black inks, in-line with DiamondTouch soft touch coating 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 over the interlocking circles on the front panel provides a striking contrast to the overall matte soft touch finish surrounding it.
Overprinting transparent gold ink over cold foil creates shimmering metallic effects. The exquisite multi-level embossed, interlocking semi-circle pattern adds distinction and reflects the legendary designer’s love for geometric shapes.
