FLEXO Magazine : May 2011
FTA TODAY Newmaster agrees. “Packaging buy- ers are demanding more and better un- derstanding of the final printing method from the designer. Asking questions about the reproduction method upfront, is critical, and based on what I saw this year, it’s actually happening. When a designer understands the process—the limitations and the possibilities—man- aging the client’s expectations becomes a lot easier. And, the results are always better as well. ” He adds that those who concentrate their efforts on appealing to their target markets had the most success. “ Color, typography and imagery were focused on the core consumer, without trying to be all things to all people. That delivers a superior result. Many of the gold winners and especially the Best of Show winner exemplify this targeted approach. ” His thoughts echo those of many of the judges. “F lexography is as good as all the other printing processes. The right combination of design, prepress and printer can deliver high-quality print jobs. ” n THE WINNERS’ CIRCLE For every brand, there is an image-painter—the printing/ packaging/converting partner.
