  • Printing on rubber?

    Doing an invite for a client who wants to do something with rubber. Anyone have experience printing on "rubberized" paper or special transparencies? FiberMark makes a paper call "Touché Cover" but the color selection sucks...

    Any suggestions would be of great help!

    The only time I've had this done, the job was silkscreened.....it looked like hell so we had a company foil the job....it looked pretty decent. They only drawback was the job had to be letterpressed really slow almost 1 at a time.

    Good luck

        We have done a few jobs on Touche Cover and you are right the color selection is very limited. We are about to print a job where the client could not find the color they wanted so we are going to print over the stock with another color - I'll let you know how it turns out.

          Whoah! I'd say that there's a line that needs to be drawn in your service model.

            Ya know Broacher, my first inclination was to suggest custom printed rubbers... Well, the outside of the package is custom printed...!...oh, heck, let's just drop this idea altogether... LOL!

              If I owned an abortion clinic, I would print some condoms that said something like "there's a 0.012% chance you're gonna have to call us after tonight," and then the number. Heh.
              IM me sometime! I promise I won't abbrev. any words under fourteen letters long.

                I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

                Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

                In terms of real world critique, if...

                Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

                Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

                The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
