Aphotic Wins Label Award

We’re stoked to share our Aphotic Imperial Porter labels won the Grand Award for Innovation at the Visual Media Alliance Showcase Awards thanks to the stellar printing from our friends at Best Label and design from WaveTrain!

These particular labels are printed Flexographic using the newest LED technologies and custom expanded color gamut process. The material substrate used is Silver Metalized Film (BOPP). Best Label applies opaque white ink first in specific areas that need to be a solid color with no metallic elements.
