▲ Not only an import replacement, the latest Best on Show accolade also recognises another example of flexo’s ability to compete with gravure. A number of challenges were overcome in the transition to flexography, for a job previously gravure-printed in India. The use of matte varnish and the need for a higher opacity white pass placed a constraint on the number of colours available but smart substitutions and technical know-how allowed production in eight colours, compared with nine-colour gravure. ▲► Representing sponsoring company, Kemtek, Clive Jonathan (centre) presents the Best on Show trophy to DBC Wovens’ Andy Koo and Botselo’s Garth Hobson.
