Best of the Best Awards are presented to winners in five categories—Combination Printing, Letterpress Printing, Offset Litho Printing, Flexographic Printing and Digital Printing. SATO was honored in the letterpress color process category.
SATO’s winning label was printed using a vivid red ink and a highly concentrated black ink instead of a combination of standard process inks, thereby bringing to life the colors of the label design, which expresses the freshness of the sushi roll.
In order to create halftone dots to reproduce the highest possible color quality, SATO worked to ensure a printing pressure conducive to producing a uniform and stable output. The result was a highly accurate finish that was suited to the product.
