Excellent Print Quality for Optimal Design

The Canadian aluminium aerosol can producer Montebello produces the 53mm x 150mm cans with snap lock shoulder for Dr. Scholl’s Athlete‘s Foot Spray. Dr. Scholl now offers a line of instant Cool Athlete’s Foot Solutions. This can was originally designed for 3-piece steel construction, so the graphics consisted of a lot of vignettes and design features like the speckled background pattern at the top and the two-colour word „COOL“ on the front panel. The use of a split ink well and the dark blue screen from the bottom of the can to midpoint allowed the dark blue to fade nicely to zero. Montebello used their dry dot screening technique, dot gain curves and manipulation of the artwork for dry offset printing to make sure that the screened background area showing the light blue speckled graphic at the top of the container is printed smoothly with no harsh and halftone breaks. They achieved the crisp sharp small text on the back panel and those beautiful gradient screens using their Esko-Graphic CDI and digitally ablated dry offset plate material. Digital plates, perfect registration and ink management contributed to the success of the print quality, which is all-round impressive.
