Gurnee, Illinois based announced that packaging solutions provider Independent II was recognized in the 2023 Digital Labels & Packaging Awards for its Jeptha Creed Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey RSC corrugated box solution, produced on the Domino X630i digital aqueous inkjet press.
Independent II of Louisville, Kentucky, is a privately-owned corrugated manufacturer, providing total packaging solutions. It designs, manufactures, warehouses, and delivers corrugated and packaging that protect customers products in-transit and on shelves.
With Domino’s X630i, Independent II improved the print quality while eliminating the need for ink plates.
“This award validates our vision and investment with Domino,” said Finn MacDonald, President, Independent II.
The Digital Labels & Packaging Awards were introduced in 2022 to represent the full depth and breadth of work produced using digital printing and converting equipment. The Analogue-to-Digital category recognizes solutions previously printed using conventional processes, but now progressed digitally to benefit the converter and their customers.
The judges noted that, “Changing from flexo to inkjet in a challenging heavily inked design, opening detail in the logo while eliminating noticeable fluting marks scored highly.” Finn MacDonald adds: “Independent is thrilled to receive this award. It recognizes our goal to bring brown, branded, and digital packaging success to our market. The Domino X630i single-pass digital press produces award-winning, aqueous-based, four-color print on uncoated and coated corrugated sheets – which our business is built on. Independent and Domino share a vision to deliver ‘everyday digital’ impact to markets where the pop and flexibility of single-pass digital create bolder business opportunities.”
Launched in June 2020, the X630i allows corrugated box printers to maximize productivity and efficiency, enabling the profitable development of short- and medium-run market opportunities and facilitating new business streams.
“This is an industry-leading example of what can be achieved with today’s digital inkjet solutions, and we are proud that our technology has facilitated such success,” Jeptha Creed and Domino’s X630i,” said Matt Condon, Business Development Manager, Domino Digital Printing North America.
