Pet owners want a handsome place to keep their kibble, and this project delivered

Independent Can Company's printed six-and-a-half gallon metal can for Eukanuba dog food recently won the "Grand Award" at the 2006 Excellence in Quality competition presented by the International Metal Decorators Association during its annual convention in Chicago.

Entries were submitted for review by a host of metal lithographers from around the world. Each entry was evaluated by an impartial committee of judges. Criteria for evaluation included the quality of printing, degree of difficulty, appearance of the coating finishes, registration and technical expertise required to achieve the desired results.

“Pet owners want a handsome place to keep their kibble, and this project delivered,” said Kurt Iverson, Iams spokesperson. “The Eukanuba dog food container commemorates the 60-year anniversary of The Iams Company and celebrates our mission to enhance the well-being of dogs and cats.”

Independent Can also won a Best of Category and an Award of Merit for "Liberty Chopper" and "Budweiser Clydesdales" metal signs for Desperate Enterprises.
