As one of the longest running and most prestigious annual metal decorating competitions, the IMDPA’s Excellence in Quality Contest honors outstanding companies who have made exceptional quality and precise consistency in the pursuit of decorating & packaging excellence. Trivium Packaging’s two IMDPA Excellence in Quality Awards were awarded for:
Award of Excellence
The Saint Gervais Mont-Blanc can was launched following the success of Frozen II. Developed, produced, and filled in France, this 300ml can holds Mont Blanc’s thermal water spray. Trivium’s expert printing knowledge was applied to the vision for this bottle resulting in successful development, using metallic inks that matched the marketing expectations of the customer, and flawless production of can after can of this limited-edition product.
Best of Category: Aerosol & Bottles
The GEN Z 16 FL oz water bottle is truly unique! The bottle showcases Gen Z’s signature design with use of colorful graphics containing fun images, all on a bottle that is refillable and 100% recyclable, infinitely.
“Throughout this project, the Trivium team was fantastic to work with,” said Neil Mellers, Chief of Growth & Founder at GEN Z. “Special thanks to our account managers for taking the time to walk us through the process and ensure our design looked great on the bottle!”
Judges evaluated the quality of printing, the degree of difficulty, the appearance of coating finishes, registration, and the technical expertise required for each piece.
