Gold & Best of Show Award

Zavida Coffee Roasters Organica Box

Printed by Packaging Technologies Inc.

“Our customer, Zavida Coffee Co., had great expectations for this print in conjunction with the launch of this new packaging format for Costco Clubs. The graphics were designed to be bright and bold, with lush greens and soothing blues creating the image of a natural tropical paradise. The print was created with an actual photograph which had some butt fit areas and some zero traps on a 44-in. repeat, leading to a challenging job. This print also had multiple small logos throughout, which was difficult to maintain in register and keep clean due to the combination print. Zavida was thrilled with the color, definition and finish of this package.” – Printer’s Comment

“Great laydown of metallic ink. Difficult registration. Overall, a very clean print.” – Judges’ Comment
