Mid Web, Process, Film
Gold & Best of Show Award
Terra Sweets Medley Wrapper
Printed by Industrias de Plasticos S.A.
“This design represented for us a total challenge, as the client historically had done the wrapper in rotogravure and we were going to print it flexographically. Achieving the ideal balance of each color to reach the perfect tone that captured the real element of the photo, while getting the pitch black background requested by the customer, was the real difficulty here. This print is made at 150 lpi separated to eight colors, with a delicate adjustment of pressure to reach great definition in each point and complete moiré elimination with the adequate selection of angles, percentages and linescreen of the five process colors that come together to make the background.” – Printer’s Comment
“Great! The 5-color, rich black with small reverse type at high speeds was very impressive. Registration is impeccable. Beautiful glow in the fade.” – Judges’ Comment
