Typical FMCG fare may be short on shelf life and lower in value, but Sherwood Press ensured longevity of impact and lustrous looks in print to jump from being a finalist in 2013 to take the top spot this year.

The Apple box for Norman Collett is one of several jobs that stood out. Construction and graphic design were created in-house. The carrier box, engineered to meet store merchandising requirements, not only won over judges - “a very considered entry, demonstrating excellent quality and consistent construction” - but the client was “thrilled to see the concept on shelf; this was made easier by working with Sherwood Press’ forward-thinking team”. Another of many satisfied customers was Bakkavor Group for the Tesco Finest Croquembouche Dessert Kit.

FFP almost swung this category with a range of entries such as Ubley yoghurt tubes, based on the Disney film Frozen. A natural looking, clean background for the squeezable yoghurt packs was achieved using a print process that took two years of research into every aspect of the flexo process to perfect. This attention to detail was picked up by judges who commented: “The standard was outstanding, superb definition and crisp registration.”
