AIFEC 2020 Best Label Awards

AIFEC 2020 Best Label Awards

The annual meeting of AIFEC partners ended with the presentation of the awards of the second edition of the awards for the Best AIFEC Labels, which this year have raised the company Coreti as the winner in the category of food and beverages and Adhesivos del Segura in the news of innovation and development.

Coreti's winning label is a wine label created for Sabaria. It is a wine that represents the jewel of this winery, so the label represents that idea: the front is made with two different papers to give it volume. The upper part is printed on velvet paper with dry stroke and stamping and the lower part in soft touch with embossed stamping and blue screen printing.

Most of the works that have been presented this year have been in the category of food and beverages, so the jury also decided to give a second prize for another label that was very close in score to that of Coreti: it is the MUWI label by Etilisa, a wine label that represents the poster of the fourth edition of the music festival at the Music & Wine winery, made in four-color printing with fluorine pink ink. Use the hot stamping technique and apply 3D pyramid relief.

The winning label in the innovation and development novelties category is Anti Gotta, a proposal by Adhesivos del Segura for the Chateau de Mus winery that includes an integrated anti-drip disc. The production of this label with the disc has three die-cutting processes and the possibility of lamination to give the appearance of paper required by the customer.

Fedrigoni launches Paper Box

The entire range of Fedrigoni papers is divided into three easy-to-handle sections, with nearly 900 different types of natural, coated, colored, white, smooth and embossed papers of all weights.

Developed by designers Paul Neale, Andy Stevens and Huw Morgan of the Graphic Thought Facility (GTF) agency, the Paper Box is made entirely from Fedrigoni paper, including the elegant outer casing. It aims to inspire and guide designers, printers, publishers, packaging professionals, etc.

Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie creates the bottles of Angels' Share and Roses on ice by Kilian

Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie creates the bottles of Angels' Share and Roses on ice by Kilian

Kilian Paris entrusted Stoelzle Masnières Parfumerie with the creation of the bottles of the new fragrances The Liquors. A thick glass, engraved with the emblematic K motif, reflecting light from every angle. Trompe l'oeil objects, reminiscent of cocktail glasses in Art Deco bars... The great complexity of the design of this bottle required a technical feat from the Stoelzle team.

Angels' Share was concocted in collaboration with perfumer Benoist Lapouza. Roses on ice is the fruit of the collaboration on the taste of "gin on the rocks" between Kilian Hennessy and perfumer Franck Voelkl.

For the launch of these fragrances, several challenges were successfully met: a facetted bottle, very rich in glass, carried by a very small screw ring; a very regular distribution at the base and shoulder despite very pronounced intaglio engraving; the creation of a very specific mould, requiring a demoulding in several parts; and perfect dimensional control to allow a good positioning and gluing of the plate.

TNT Global Manufacturing meets a new challenge with the collar and caps for Loubiworld collection

TNT Global Manufacturing meets a new challenge with the collar and caps for Loubiworld collection

Louboutin's Looubiworld collection combines the elegance of the brand's iconic red and the metallic shine of nickel, enhanced with epoxy or plastic. TNT Global Manufacturing has materialized the brand's creative design through the collar, made of two pieces - an aluminium stovepipe and a brass plate, respectively nickel-anodized and nickel-galvanized - and hidden by the 100% recyclable injected zamak cap, once assembled. Each head is embellished with red details in epoxy or plastic.

There are 7 patterns:

Loubifunk: Pineapple composed of 4 zamak pieces including 2 with epoxy inlay inside the top leaves.

Loubidoo: Cat made of 5 zamak pieces. Epoxy ears and red plastic lipstick.

Loubikiss: Mexican style head made of 2 zamak pieces, with lips covered with a thin layer of epoxy.

Loubirouge: Iconic Louboutin stiletto, with heel on Paris, overlooking the globe, made of 3 zamak pieces, and sole covered with a thin layer of epoxy, requiring excellent know-how given the complexity of the surface to be covered.

Loubiraj: Indian tiger made of 3 zamak pieces and a red plastic jewel on the side of the top.

Loubicrown: Crown made of 2 zamak pieces and 4 "precious" stones in red plastic.

Loubicroc: Egyptian crocodile wrapping an obelisk, made of 3 zamak pieces, with epoxy-coated claws on each leg.
