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 powerful 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 meticulously 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.
SATO Group has established a
system to consistently and comprehensively cover all processes from the
development of label substrates, production of base paper, design proposal,
printing and processing.
