Jergens Body Butter Sandalwood Tube
“This print uses a combination of process inks and spot colors with a gold cold foil accent and pleasing soft-touch coating. The pearlescent sheet makes for a difficult substrate due to the stretch of the material. Registration and color consistency is critical for the appearance of the white band and image. Properly balanced color is imperative for this nature-based image with a range of light and dark tones.”

“How do you know when you’re looking at a Best of Show? When the judges ask each other ‘What don’t you like about this print?’ and nobody can come up with anything to say! A spectacular job by this printer.”
