Packaging – Folding Carton Category
"Dynamic and striking, this folding carton entices consumers at first sight with its distinctive "X" shape, bright orange printing, and the look of an upscale rigid box. Picking up the pack, consumers feel its luxurious soft touch coating and notice the glimmer of its fine detail foil stamping. At home, after removing the lid, they're delighted to see the signature "hello sexy" panel, under which the product is inset into even more coated, foil stamped board. Providing an immersive brand experience from store shelf to unboxing and beyond, this carton clearly demonstrates paperboard's limitless marketing capabilities—it's a pack you simply can't put down." - PPC Judges
