24-sided Expanded Can
(Winner of the Gold Award in the Beverage Three-Piece Category)

24-sided Expanded Can

24-sided Expanded Can Suntory Foods
“Boss Gold Presso” (185g)

The uniquely designed trisoctahedron shape of this can was made possible by Daiwa Can’s expansion forming technology. Combining polyhedral body with a golden color, this package helped developing the high-quality, premium image of the product, supporting its concept of an espresso that gives adults a richly relaxing experience. It also stands out well under bright lighting conditions at convenience stores and general merchandise stores by the reflecting effect from the 24-sided face.

120-ml film-laminated Mini Bottle Can
House Foods “Ukon no Chikara Super” (120ml) (185g)

This is a sister product of our popular 100-ml Mini Bottle Can, which was first marketed in 2004 and received the Cans of the Year Bronze and Silver awards in 2005 and 2008, respectively. Just like the 100-ml bottle, this new version features a convenient resealable cap and a light and portable body but now with a stylish, longer shape with 120-ml capacity. It is an eco-friendly product that requires no water during its manufacturing process as both the inside and outside of the bottle is coated with PET film.

Two-Piece Gravure Laminated Can with Hologram Ink
(Winner of the Silver Award in the Beverage Two-Piece Category)

In this type of products, Daiwa Can has realized photographically vivid and clear graphics specific to gravure printing. In addition, the use of innovative hologram ink* has made it possible for them to offer a unique three-dimensional rainbow effect, with which the can surface changes colors depending on the tone and angle of light. Multiple graphics printed on the sheet are applied on to cans collectively to produce sets of assorted graphical cans, and this will give marketers an opportunity to develop unique marketing strategies.
