Printing Helps Tube Make Its Mark in Awards
Alcan Packaging Beauty has won an award from the European Tube Manufacturers Association. The supplier of tube, fragrance, and cosmetics packaging received the Best Laminate Tube 2009 distinction for its production of Bye-Bye Spot, Nivea’s latest addition to its Visage Young line.
Alcan Packaging Beauty used two printing methods: Pixel Graphics direct printing for detail and subtle color gradations, and hot-stamping for a mirror effect. According to Alcan Packaging Beauty, its Pixel Graphics technology “brings the most innovative graphics and designs to life, with photo effect, true-to-life labels and matte, gloss, or metallic effects.” It can also be used for plastic tubes.
