finat award label competition

Triple win for CARINI once again in the international FINAT Label Competition

Just like in 2017, the leading Austrian label manufacturer CARINI is delighted with the three awards it has received once again this year from the international association for the self-adhesive label industry. The awards were presented on 6 June 2018 at the FINAT Annual Conference in Ireland’s capital Dublin. The annual competition honours and rewards outstanding achievements in the field of end-use applications and marketing as well as print and finishing Quality.

The design possibilities for labels are now virtually unlimited – something that CARINI has proved in impressive fashion once again with its award-winning submissions. The Lustenau-based company uses the latest technologies and provides label designers with a diverse range of thrilling special effects.

The skull and crossbones motif has been moulded during the printing process to create a three-dimensional effect. The excellent execution using two-tone offset printing with hot gold foil and blind embossing has been honoured with a recognition award in the “Wine” category.

Precise hot gold foil embossing for the logo’s finest details combined with 4c digital printing, a matt varnish and a textured material: this label was also very much to the liking of the members of the jury, who presented it with a recognition award in the “Digital Processing” category.

“The fact that the work we’ve been doing since 2017 has been acknowledged once more with three prizes or recognition awards is obviously a tremendous success for our entire team,” says Edgar Sohm, the Managing Director of CARINI Etiketten GmbH from Lustenau. “And repeating this gratifying achievement shows once more that not only are we at the top of our game when it comes to ambitious individual projects, but we’re also able to maintain
