ProAmpac Wins Three 2020 Gold Ink Awards from Packaging Impressions

CINCINNATIProAmpac, the leader in flexible packaging, joined with Grow West Organics, Oldcastle, and EB Stone to celebrate the acceptance of three 2020 Gold Ink Awards for excellence in printing capabilities.

The leading magazine and content provider for the printed packaging markets, Printing Impressions, announced its 2020 Gold Ink Awards in categories that include all printing processes for labels, folding cartons, flexible and corrugated packaging.

ProAmpac received the following awards in flexible packaging:

  • Silver – for Grow West Organics Pride Lands Premium Potting Soil packaging. The bag showcases near 360-degree brand identity by extending the printed graphics to the bottom gusset in addition to the front and back panels.
  • Pewter – for Oldcastle Just Natural Organic All-Purpose Garden Soil. The organic feel created by the 7-color print is enhanced with its appearance on a beige film substrate.
  • Pewter – for E.B. Stone’s Recipe 420 Bhang Soil Potting Soil. The bold graphics pop-off the black polyethylene substrate to help the bag convey the brand’s identity on store shelves and through eCommerce.

“We’re honored to be recognized by Printing Impressions. We take a great deal of pride in bringing our customers’ great packaging designs to life. All three bags are printed at our UV printing center of excellence in Rocky Mount, VA, and use a process that is unique to ProAmpac,” stated John Ericson, president of ProAmpac’s Lawn, Garden & Specialty division.

All three award winners use bold ultraviolet (UV) energy-cured, high-gloss coated and high-density UV inks. An overcoat and UV light-cured ink system leaves the final product with a laminated look.
