March 2014 AIMCAL Award
The Technical Award in the Healthcare, Cosmetics and Toiletries Category recognized Hazen Paper’s metallizing and converting role in setup boxes for Gucci Pour Homme and Made to Measure gift sets from Procter & Gamble Co., Cincinnati, Ohio. Hazen supplied Ultracure acrylic silver 48-gauge metallized polyester and laminated it to the coated side of 80-pound litho paper. The film laminates well and smoothly stretches around the padded top of the Pour Homme box. McLean Packaging, Moorestown, N.J., provided package design and contract packaging services.
The judges were impressed with how all the elements of the packaging came together: metallization, lamination, ink laydown, pillow top and fingerprint-repelling surface. “It’s appealing from afar,” noted one member of the panel.
