Meyers Wins First Sustainable Packaging Award
Meyers Reaches Milestone in Sustainability and Packaging Journey by Winning This Award
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (February 16, 2023) – Meyers, a printing company that designs and manufactures innovative packaging, labels, retail displays and more, has received the 2022 New Jersey Packaging Executives Club (NJPEC) “Package of the Year” award in the Sustainability Health & Beauty category for packaging it created for each of the four fragrances in ULTA Beauty’s EDT Purse Sprays collection. The NJPEC annual awards recognize industry excellence that meets the criteria of Design Excellence, Shelf Impact, Uniqueness, Cost Effectiveness, and Graphic Presentation.
Meyers’ award-winning packaging created for ULTA Beauty’s EDT Purse Sprays leveraged responsibly sourced materials with unique production methods, resulting in a stunning shelf presence at a dramatically cost-effective price. The company created packaging for all four fragrances in the collection – Sugared Vanilla, Island Breeze, Coconut Cream, and Black Salt Vanilla. “The packaging we created for ULTA Beauty’s EDT Purse Sprays collection is unlike anything we’ve ever produced before,” said Michael Dillon, Chief Revenue Officer, Meyers. “We created a pearlescent packaging stock using specialized coatings, instead of purchasing already-pearlescent paper. This led to a nearly 10-times savings in cost that was beautiful and perfectly complemented the brand’s well-priced beauty products.”
“I’ve worked with Meyers since 1988, taking them to every company I’ve worked with,” said Jael Dalessandro, Senior Operations and Compliance Officer, ULTA Beauty. “In terms of packaging, Meyers always comes up with new technologies and new ways we can be more recyclable. That innovation and their commitment to quality and customer service is so impactful for us as a company and really helps us be an industry leader when it comes to sustainability, and makes our products stand out from a standpoint of beautiful aesthetics.”
The ULTA Beauty EDT Purse Sprays packaging was custom designed to hold the small item upright while being very stable on the shelf. In keeping with Meyers’ commitment to sustainability, the package was created using FSC-certified materials at a Sustainable Green Printing Partnership certified facility. One hundred percent of the electricity used to manufacture the packages was carbon-free and renewable. The printing of the package was done on a digital-flexo-hybrid press that includes both traditional flexographic print and digital print. This manufacturing process for folding carton packages is exceptionally rare and strikes a balance between managing costs and quality.
