Environmental Contribution Award

 Earning the sleeve label award for Environmental Contribution Exportaciones Im Promocion (EXIMPRO) from Mexico, for the product Zen Water, printed with Rotogravure on an rPET substrate with washable inks. The entry is using a PET bottle made 100% from ocean-bound plastic and rPET sleeve material – as well as washable inks that enable the recycling of the sleeve and container together, using current and accepted processes.

Heat TD Shrink Sleeve Category

McDowell; a Resource Label Group Co. were winners in the Heat-shrink TD Sleeve category, for their label for Ghost/Sour Patch Kids: Blue Raspberry. Demonstrating the power of a shrink sleeve – even without the element of shape – this CAN application might reasonably be described as a “sensory masterpiece”. The eye-catching design combined with the touch and feel in the consumers hand is near perfect.
