Winning in the Best Sleeve Label 2015 & Heat TD Shrink Sleeve Category was CCL Label (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) for their production of Diageo’s Smirnoff Sours sleeve labels. According to the judges, the entry is a 'sexy' label, it is innovative, exudes shelf appeal, and incorporates plenty of technology.
