‘We’re excited to celebrate and promote the best-of-the-best in beverage can design, said Renee Schouten, director of marketing for INX International Ink Co. ‘We introduced the contest over a year ago, and as more brand owners and graphic designers use the INX Color Catalog and appreciate its value as the single true color standard in the metal decorating industry, the contest has attracted greater interest and awareness.’
