Independent II wins ‘Digital Labels and Packaging’ Award with Domino X630i

Domino has shared the news that Independent II has been recognised in the 2023 Digital Labels & Packaging Awards for its Jeptha Creed Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey RSC corrugated box solution, produced on the Domino X630i digital inkjet press.

Having previously won for ‘Excellence in Flexography’ on the Jeptha Creed box in 2020, for Independent II, a subsequent award in the ‘Analog-to-Digital’ category signifies that “brands now have choices without compromise”. With Domino’s X630i, Independent II further improved the print quality while eliminating the need for ink plates.

“This award validates our vision and investment with Domino,” says Finn MacDonald, President, Independent II.

One of 14 awards bestowed on printers and converters involved in the digital print for packaging supply chain, the ‘Analog-to-Digital’ category recognises solutions previously printed using conventional processes but now progressed digitally to benefit the converter and their customers.

MacDonald adds, “Independent is thrilled to receive this award. It recognises our goal to bring brown, branded, and digital packaging success to our market. The Domino X630i digital press produces award-winning, aqueous-based, four-colour print on uncoated and coated corrugated sheets – which our business is built on. Independent and Domino share a vision to deliver ‘everyday digital’ impact to markets where the pop and flexibility of single-pass digital create bolder business opportunities.”

Matt Condon, Business Development Manager, Domino Printing Sciences, concludes, “Domino is delighted that Independent II has been acknowledged within these prestigious awards for its innovative work with Jeptha Creed and Domino’s X630i. This is an industry-leading example of what can be achieved with today’s digital inkjet solutions, and we are proud that our technology has facilitated such success.”
