The Trinity Hill L’Eritage Gimblet Gravels wine label has won Best in Category for Labels at this year’s Pride In Print awards.
Pride In Print organisers received 162 submissions for the awards, nearly double the number from last year.
Labels covered everything from wine to food and luxury goods packaging.
Judge Gary Gibbon said all the judges thought Trinity Hill’s entry was a spectacular label and awarding it best in the category was a unanimous decision.
The label features sculptured emboss and silver foil embellishment, printed and entered by Multi-Color New Zealand.
“We had a lot of labels to judge but this one stood out,” he says. “It looks simple but it’s very high quality.”
Gibbon said its special feature was the embossing of the foil and print which was done in two processes, with the latter being difficult to do on a reel to reel press.
“We estimated the degree of difficulty to be a nine out of 10 to get the foil into register and there were absolutely no blemishes in the print.”
Other liquor winners included Jagermeister, which won Best in Category for Rigid Packaging with its mini fridge display cabinet; and Invivo picked up a Gold Medal for its Invivo X label.
