Paperboard Packaging Council’s National Paperboard Packaging Competition

www.ppcnet.org

Judged by a jury of packaging professionals, industry experts, professors and media experts, the North American Paperboard Packaging Competition recognizes packages from carton manufacturers involved in the concept, design, print, performance and shelf appeal of paperboard packaging.

 

Package of the Year
TPC Printing & Packaging
Bath & Body Works Be Joyful 2.5 oz.

Carefully converted to mirror the aesthetics of a holiday ornament, the carton features custom laminate lenses that took months of prototyping to create. The lenses were cautiously applied to the board, as miniscule imprecisions in placement could throw off the entire look. The carton also has custom press applied colors and silkscreened white copy for a clean appearance.

 

 

 

 

Folding Carton of the Year
The Ellis Group
M&M’s Mini 4 Pack Stocking Stuffer

This eye-catching carton reminds us how structural and graphic design can work together to form a gift-worthy package. The carton’s perforations and creasing let consumers split the pack into individual gifts—ready to fill all of the stockings on the mantle during the holidays. The graphics feature one of the four M&M’s characters dressed for the holiday.

 

 

Rigid Box of the Year
Tap Packaging Solutions
Leitmotiv Eau De Parfum Set 

A luxurious rigid box was the choice for Leitmotiv. With gold foil stamping and a hinge opening, this setup box stands out on the shelf, conveying a lightness and elegance that appeals to the brand’s target market. Inside the pack, the perfume bottles are further branded and protected by paperboard sleeves that are printed and foil stamped to match the outer wrap.

 

 

Eco Award of the Year
WestRock
Verticrate

 

This 12-pack carrier for glass beer bottles sits at the intersection of sustainability and brand power. In substituting a lighter 27pt Carrier Kote for the previous design’s litho-laminated B-flute, this carton yielded 66% freight/logistics savings, 3% material weight savings, 81% savings in pallets and valuable brewery floor space, and a 30% carbon footprint reduction.

 

 

Inno Award of the Year
WestRock
Duralift

This 20-can beer carton features a strap-style handle—made entirely of paper.

The strap distributes weight to the ends of the carton where it attaches to the minor flaps, improving strength and performance. Additionally, the rigidity of the cans helps the carton withstand the pressure of their weight, thereby eliminating deformation and bulging that can occur when customers pick up similar packs. The strap also extends to allow space for the consumer’s hand, and has a reinforcement ply for a more robust and comfortable grip.

 

Judges’ Award of the Year—1
Caraustar
Carrier for Bakeware Pans with Lid

With this heavy-duty paperboard carrier, consumers can safely and comfortably transport their hot dishes to picnics, family gatherings, or the Sunday game. A four-corner beers style tray with fold-over double-layer handles, this design can hold twice the weight of the food that consumers can place in the pan. The system also includes a corrugated pad that insulates the hot pan and increases stability and strength of the paperboard tray.

 

 

Judges’ Award of the Year—2
JohnsByrne Co.
Casamigos Tequila Boxes

Converted on a one-of-a-kind press with three coating units, eight print units, and 4 drying units, they have silver pre-foil stamping, ultra violet gloss coating, seven colors, soft-touch matte coating, and satin varnish. Post-press, the carton was embossed with the Casamigos logo, and a vertical wood grain deboss was applied throughout.

 

Judges’ Award of the Year—3
TPC Printing & Packaging
Jack Daniels Tennessee Fire Holiday carton

This Jack Daniels carton features special holographic red foil stamping and extensive embossing. To achieve the fiery effect, the carton required a whopping seven passes including silk screening, two stamping passes, and embossing in addition to diecutting and folding/gluing.
