Thank you, Tri-Plex."
On behalf of Tri-Plex Packaging, Jason Roth added, "The IMAs recognize artists and record labels working outside the mainstream to create unique experiences through music. When we approached the packaging for American Favorite Ballads Vol. 1-5, we wanted to capture the same principles of individuality and exclusivity. We believe that there is no better or more immediate visual representation of any product than its packaging. Working closely with the wonderful team at Smithsonian Folkways on this project was a truly rewarding experience for us, and to win Best Album Package by such an illustrious group is an incredible honor. We are very proud of our association with Smithsonian Folkways and the recognition of the Independent Music Awards."
The IMAs is an international program that honors top-ranked independent artists and releases, giving them the recognition they deserve. Congratulations to all the winners.
