It was awarded in the letterpress category for the premium Japanese tea, “Keikacha.” It received the award at a ceremony held at Labelexpo Americas 2016 in Chicago on September 13.
    The ‘Best of the Best’ Awards are presented to L9 World Label Awards winners in five categories—Combination Printing, Letterpress Printing, Offset Litho Printing, Flexographic Printing and Digital Printing.

    Features that were recognized for Keikacha include metallic printing, varnish printing and laminate coating which give a premium look and feel. The finished product showcases SATO’s technical printing capability to regulate printing pressure and ensure accurate printing registration.
