Alcoa Flexible Packaging Shrink Sleeve Wins Best of Show Award at PLGA Annual Meeting!
RICHMOND, Va.--Recently, at the Packaging & Label Gravure Association's 10th Annual
Operational Conference, Alcoa Flexible Packaging was again recognized
for premium print quality by receiving "Best of Show" for
its Neilson’s The Ultimate Chocolate Milk™
1 liter bottle shrink sleeve. Not only did the Alcoa shrink sleeve win
the top award in its label category, it then contended with the best
entries among 30-plus different product categories for "Best of Show".
Another outstanding example of the fine quality rotogravure printing
from Alcoa Flexible Packaging, the reverse printed 50 micron PET shrink
sleeve label utilizes 7 colors to produce a label that appears drenched
in chocolate milk. The photo realistic graphics of luscious chocolate
milk being poured into a translucent glass with condensation droplets
captures consumers' attention, inviting them to drink and enjoy.
This is the 7th award Alcoa Flexible Packaging has received in the past
twelve months for its shrink sleeves. Alcoa shrink sleeves are produced
at the Alcoa Downingtown Packaging Plant in Downingtown, Pennsylvania.
