Sai Paks India wins Innovative Printer of the Year (PET, LDPE, HDPE, PVC, PP, PS, metal/glass)

In February 2023, Chitale Bandhu Mithaiwale was about to launch a one-litre PET bottle for milk and was looking for a different kind of shrink sleeve. The company wanted the logo to be printed in gold. 

Sai Paks started by printing the artwork with surface-printed matte-effect and surface-printing gold foil. It did not work as the gold foil faded. Then Sai Paks received a special foil from Kurz. Still, the gold looked slightly faded. Then, a layer of varnish was applied, and finally, the intended result was achieved. 

For the product, Sai Paks also developed the configuration of its new UV flexo press, which should have a hot air dual rewind after the ninth colour and then one more UV for extra curing for speciality coating. 

Printed on 40-micron cast PVC, with CMYK plus white plus shrinkable gold foiling plus matte UV on the surface, 10,000 shrink sleeves were produced.

Special Jury Mention
Any Graphics (Noida)

Any Graphics received a Special Jury Mention for a security merged label, a holography technology innovated by the company to combat counterfeiting. In this, security features are visible on the label and look like a part of the design. The company modified the customer’s design and merged the security effects on the label. With this innovation, no extra space is required, and no extra manpower is required to paste security labels. And it is not possible to duplicate this label.
