MGI JETvarnish 3D Series Honored for Innovation

The prestigious annual DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation program has granted a second, consecutive honor to the MGI Group (mgiusa.com). An international jury of expert judges from global corporate brand manufacturers and package printers selected the JETvarnish 3D “Digital Decoration Process” as being worthy of a 2017 Diamond Finalist Award for the advancement of packaging industry standards of excellence. In 2016, the DuPont judges bestowed its first ever “Leadership in Innovation Award” upon MGI in special recognition of its original JETvarnish 3D digital technology and contributions to the worldwide packaging industry.

The Diamond Finalist Award, the highest award group level, recognizes significant achievement in all three judging categories and evaluation criteria:

  • Technological Advancement:

New materials, technology integration, increased production & distribution efficiency

  • Responsible Packaging:

Waste reduction, energy & environmental impact that benefits the greater good

  • Enhanced User Experience:

Enables greater product accessibility, aids merchandising and motivates purchase

Since winning the 2016 “Leadership in Innovation Award”, MGI has expanded the product line with the world’s first B1+ size digital print enhancement press (JETvarnish 3D Evolution), the world’s first roll-fed digital print enhancement press (JETvarnish 3DWeb), the world’s first use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for print registration (AIS SmartScanner) and a host of other new software and hardware technology advances to optimize print embellishment quality and production volumes.

MARRS Printing & Packaging Success Story

For both the 2016 and 2017 awards, the DuPont program also recognized the exceptional quality of craftsmanship utilized by MGI California customer, MARRS Printing & Packaging. The MARRS team used their JETvarnish 3D to produce a number of the samples reviewed by the judges. MARRS is one of the leading providers of cosmetics, healthcare and consumer goods packaging solutions in the United States. Their exemplary work and customer success with the JETvarnish 3D Series has been highlighted in “Printing Impressions Magazine”, “PackagePrinting Magazine”, “Packaging World Magazine” and at the annual Digital Packaging Summit executive conference.
