GLBC Brings Home Two Awards at 2022 NA Paperboard Packaging Competition

RICHMOND, B.C., November 1, 2022 — Great Little Box Company/ Ideon Packaging (GLBC) recently won two Excellence Awards at the Paperboard Packaging Council’s (PPC) 79th annual NA Paperboard Packaging Competition. The packaging designs recognized in PPC’s competition represent some of the best folding cartons and rigid boxes manufactured over the past year. The awards are administered and hosted by PPC and judged by a jury of packaging professionals, industry experts, and professors.

The awards are:
1) Gold Award for: Brand & Iron -Origami Candle Box.
The challenge was to design a unique candle box that was sleek and minimalist on the outside but with a surprising and delightful opening experience for the customer. The design was thoughtfully created to fold into itself, so no adhesive was required.

2) Excellence Award for: Om Organics Skincare Beauty Line
The challenge was to create a package that aligned with the company’s values and goals. By using the simplicity of one-color print and printing on the uncoated side of the board a more natural, earthy feel was accomplished paying homage to OM’s concept of being beautifully made.
