A’Design Award & Competition is the world’s largest international design
awards program recognizing top designs that exhibit an exemplary level
of perfection. Entries to the A’ Packaging Design Awards are
peer-reviewed and anonymously judged by an expert jury panel of leading
academics, influential press members and experienced professionals. Mace
Security International, Inc. was honored in the Packaging Design Award –
Professional Entry category.

In its award-winning entry, the company said, “The newly updated mission
statement inspired Mace Security International, ‘Empowering your world
through safety and security.’ It’s important to us to offer the best
safety and security products to our customers and that includes a design

folded paper instruction pamphlet. This method is environmentally
friendly and drastically decreases the company’s PVC footprint.

for our packaging redesign program,” says John McCann, president and
chief executive officer of Mace Security International, Inc. “Our team
