The competition was great, but Thoro Packaging was awarded the Folding Carton of the Year for the Lancer Skincare – Legacy Youth Treatment carton.  At the awards dinner and ceremony hosted by the Paperboard Packaging Council on Thursday, October 5 in Scottsdale, Arizona, Thoro walked away with 4 awards including the coveted Folding Carton of the year.

Inside the Design of the Folding Carton of the Year

This glamorous folding carton was designed in the spirit of a beautiful shell.  Inside is a rare and precious pearl: an ultra high-end skincare treatment. To underscore the value and exclusivity of its “pearl”, the design spared no expense when it came to embellishment. Perhaps most striking is the choice to forgo printed graphics and text for foil stamping and spot UV throughout. This adds a feeling of glam that truly elevates the design and gives the package a radiant glow. The outer sleeve features […]

Google is Changing Their Tune

In the beginning of January 2013, Google launched a campaign “Go Paperless in 2013”. Thoro Packaging is happy to report that Michael Makin, President and CEO of Printing Industries of America, brought the green-washing to light this past Tuesday. He sent anopen letter to Google’s CEO, challenging the campaign as “another example of a self-interested organization using an environmentally focused marketing campaign to promote its services while ignoring its own impact upon the environment.” Google cited many common misconceptions about print in their campaign, which they have since retracted thanks to the efforts of the PIA and other organizations. Click here to read more about this campaign.

“Private landowners plant about 4 million trees every day, which is 3-4 times more than they harvest…” according to the PIA as cited in the flipbook The Value of Print. As Michael Makin mentioned in his open letter to Google, “…today our country has 20 percent more trees than it did on the first Earth Day, which was held more than 40 years ago.”

The printing industry is among the […]
