Diamond won three awards, including a Gold Leaf Award, for its 2020 corporate calendar. The 2020 “Making Music” calendar pays tribute to an American icon – the electric guitar. The inspiration? A Gretsch G5422TG Electromatic® Hollow Body with Bigsby® vibrato tailpiece. The calendar features multi-color UV printing, cold foiling, UV gloss spot coating, multi-level embossing, debossing, and intricate die cutting.

Diamond also won awards for folding cartons it produced for Inter Parfums' Oscar de le Renta Bella Essence fragrance, P&G's ARC Teeth Whitening Pen, Crest Gum & Breath Purify Healthy White toothpaste, and GLEEM Professional Teeth Whitening Light Kit.

Diamond designed, manufactured, and donated
nearly 10,000 shields to UR Medicine Home Care.

Monroe County Legislature President Dr. Joe Carbone (Irondequoit) and County Legislator Karla F. Boyce (Henrietta, Mendon, Pittsford & Rush) joined Karla Fichter, CEO, and David Rydell, President, of Diamond Packaging, to donate 10,000 face shield masks to UR Medicine Home Care in Webster, NY. The face shields were designed, manufactured, and donated by Diamond Packaging.

“These masks protect the eyes, so when our staff go into patients’ homes, they’re fully protected,” said Jane Shukitis, President and CEO of University of Rochester Medicine Home Care. “And they also wear a gown, they wear gloves, they wear covering on their feet, but this has been one of the products that has been really helpful.”

“We saw an opportunity to help in this challenging time,” said CEO and owner Karla Fichter. “We have the technical and design capabilities, resources, and material availability that a lot of companies just don’t have right now. We’ve been working on designing, redesigning, and improving the face shields to come up with something that can truly benefit all of the brave people out there on the front lines every day and taking chances for themselves and their families.”
