- Cassette format of the new Aphex Twin E.P. "CHEETAH" - White cassette with Pantone on-body printing, inlay + foiled sliptube to fit MC jewelcase.
- Use of extensive network of suppliers to source cassettes – many manufacturers have stopped producing cassettes, and many of the remaining ones don't offer printing directly onto the shell of the cassette.
- Co-ordination with the client to ensure all formats match as well as possible in terms of colour and foiling.
- White Cassette: Printed PMS638 to both sides. Ferric tape.
- Custom sliptube: Printed 2/0 on 505mcn + silver foiling to front. 'Trapping' issues were a particular concern on this project, so we worked with the printers to ensure the foiling and print elements were in perfect alignment.
- Inlays: Printed 1/1 on 170gsm gloss art + overall gloss UV.
