That’s the mantra of printers, prepress providers and even consumer product companies (CPCs) in this edition of FLEXO’s Annual Designer’s Guide. The question is: why don’t we collaborate more? Three CPCs attempt to answer that. Meanwhile, one private label CPC—Western Family Foods—talks about design in terms of FIRST. Also on the private label front, supermarket A&P discusses the redesign of its entire store brand line. Going further downstream, we survey prepress providers on how to make and build relationships with designers for more effective print results.
