The gravure surface printed film structure showcasing this organic Tinkyada brown rice spaghetti is a healthy example of “what’s possible” when designing for differentiation in the dry pasta category.
Specifically, how the brown colored bran of the unmilled rice is enhanced by the gold (that is actually silver blended with organic color) printed flush to the graphic packaging window. These golden browns are complemented by the vivid pinks and purples of a progressive Canadian brand ’promising a delightful eating experience’.
For brilliant metallic effects from gold-bronze pigments (PANTONE 871 through 876) within water-based, solvent-based or UV coating systems on plastic films, our ROTOSTAR inks could provide the effect worthy of a gluten-free pasta judged “best of the bunch” in a blind tasting hosted by the San Francisco Chronicle.
The flexo reverse solvent ink printed shrink sleeve label around this Active Fresh scented Downy® Fresh Protect packaging is a glowing example of “what’s possible” when designing for differentiation in the performance and price competitive laundry category.
Specifically, how the white pearlescent and silver metallic pigments shimmer behind the translucent light blue, dark blue and dark purple inks; while conforming with the PETg film to the irregular bottle shape.
For clean pearlescent effects within water-based, solvent-based or UV coating systems on plastic or paper substrates, our LUXAN glass flake pigments provide the dimensional light reflection and sparkle that can attracts consumers and positively influence their shopping behavior.
This spouted stand-up pouch, with a flexo reverse printed film construction, is a visually clean example of “what’s possible” when designing for brand clarity in noisy retail environments.
Specifically, with the silver ink printed across three heat sealed edges and around a fitment. The bright metallic pigments, against the white substrate, provide a clean contrast that doesn’t lose luster in the fine typography, rules and illustrations from front to back.
Method Products™ have commendably achieved a Cradle-to-Cradle™ SILVER certification for this ‘dye and perfume free’ gel hand wash refill packaging designed for recyclability and “to help save trips to the store”.*
This gravure printed pouch is an elegant example of “what’s possible” when using gold-bronze pigmented inks on film for premium product positioning in an otherwise staple food category.
Specifically, for the woodcut farm illustration and italic lettering as well as around the Idahoan logo, mashed potato photo and bottom gusset as a framing device. This generous application of true "rich gold" ink attracts current and new consumers with the effect and color of metallic brilliance.
Idahoan extends the retail impact of gold from their eleven piece line of stand-up pouch line of instant mashed potatoes to the paperboard box, folded carton and microwave cup packaging formats for maximum visual impact and competitive differentiation.*
This gravure reverse printed stand-up-pouch is a brand brilliant example of “what’s possible” when leveraging the optical and functional benefits of metallic silver liquid ink for dishwasher detergent packaging.
Specifically, when the individually sealed Action Pacs™ of Cascade® Platinum with Dawn® can be displayed in a laminated pouch for the premium metallic silver positioning on shelf; with a cost-benefit over foil pouches.
Thin polypropylene is particularly metallic ink friendly with its smooth surface that encourages metallic pigments to orient flatly and evenly for optimal direct, rather than scattered, light reflection back to the viewer.*
The narrow web flexo printed pressure-sensitive labels on this Dove Men+Care® Extra Fresh deodorant are complex examples of “what’s possible” when designing for a soft metallic brilliance in personal care.
Specifically, how well the silver ink maintains its metallic effect within the dot pattern that diminishes to mere pin-points. That same silver ink also provides a subtle contrast to the white typography and strong contrast to the bright green graphic area. One metallic silver ink simultaneously serving three design intentions!
For surface printing on pressure-sensitive labels, here within laminated structures, ECKART formulated the ROTOSTAR UV Series non-leafing silver metallic inks for lustrous brilliance across a range of applications.*
This flexographic printed shrink sleeve label is a powerful example of “what’s possible” when designing for metallic brilliance on supplement and vitamin packaging like the MuscleTech® Platinum line.
Specifically, how well the full body sleeve with nearly full ink coverage maintained it’s silver metallic effect throughout the heat shrinking process. The brilliance of that silver ink is also nearly seamless between the two pieces at the neck of the canister, for appeal on retail and home shelves before and after the packaging is opened.
For reverse printed films in shrink sleeve applications ECKART has formulated ROTOSTAR UV FX non-leafing silver metallic ink with optical properties previously only achieved using solvent Gravure inks.*
This gravure printed pouch is a confident example of “what’s possible” when designing and printing for metallic ink brilliance on flexible food packaging.
Specifically, how metallic inks can be printed in high-bond heat sealed areas as well as vignetted from full coverage to zero; where the yellow ink begins behind the fruit illustration.
Overall, this pouch conveys a silver foil-like effect with metallic ink printing on both sides coupled with the silver/white contrast in the HALLS® lettering of this new Sugar Free Citrus Blend packaging.*
Brilliant examples of ECKART metallic inks printed through flexographic or rotogravure processes onto graphic and structural packaging.
