Entrants were judged by a variety of criteria: • General category entries were first evaluated on pack- age development objectives and the types of materials used. The judges then considered the success of each entry ’s structural design and how well the printing and converting processes helped achieve the stated objec- tives. The judges also measured the package’s impact on production, manufacturing, distribution, storage and warehousing; economics (material substitutions, line efficiency, cost reduction); brand enhancement; and mar- keting. Finally, the package’s impact on the retail store shelf was carefully considered • Innovation category entries were assessed on how the package demonstrated a unique, innovative structural design or how it utilized cutting-edge materials such as substrates, inks, laminations, coatings and/or convert- ing processes • Eco category nominations were appraised accord- ing to how paperboard replaced a less-sustainable substrate and/or utilized clean production processes, saved on energy or materials, or reduced transporta- tion and fuel costs n TAKE A BOW: FTA WINNERS • Colbert Flexographic Packaging Corp. • Disc Graphics, Inc. • Ellis Packaging Group • Graphic Packaging International • Great Little Box Co. • Menasha Packaging Co., LLC • Southern Champion Tray, LLC FTA members Win big at Paperboard Packaging Competition Numerous Awards Doled Out to Seven Companies SevenFTAmemberswereamongthewinnersinthePa- perboard Packaging Council’s (PPC) 70th annual North American Paperboard Packaging Competition.

The Atlanta, GA-based pack- ager won for its Yuengling Tite-Pak 12-Count carton for D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. The PPC praised the piece, noting that its “partitions in the shape of shark fins that are pushed up from the base between the heels of the bottles were designed to reduce breakage and lessen the noise made during tran- sit.” Additionally, its proprietary Tite-Pak design “integrates into existing brewery equipment with no stops or interruptions and without diminishing line speed. Since the system utilizes existing material from the package’s bottom panel, there are no additional material costs.” Judging took place over three days in July at PPC headquar- ters.
