Kansas City, Chicago, New York – which city has the best pizza? Well, that might depend on how good the local plastic is!
If you’ve stayed in a hotel or motel lately, you’ve seen full color key card printing with ads for pizza – and other local goodies. The pizza pictures printed on my last key card looked so good that I was tempted to take a bite right out the card – especially after waiting an hour or so for the delivery!
As I waited for my delectable looking pie, I wondered, why did the pizza look so much better in key card printing than any other kind of printing? I mean, I have never been tempted to eat my pizza coupons before – but the full color key card printing with the pizza picture on it – hey – that looked good!
So, I while waiting for my mouthwatering looking slice of “za”, I went to http://www.my1stop.com and did some full color plastic key card printing research (it’s what print bloggers do alone in their hotel room)!
See if you can guess what I learned . . .
Full color plastic key card printing looks good enough to eat because:
1. The key cards cards are protected with a nice glossy laminate that makes the color really pop? T/F
2. The new composite key card materials fuse rather than soak the pigment into the card – keeping the color clearer on closer to the top of the card? T/F
3. Key card printing is done on naturally glossy materials that add natural color depth and contrast.
4. Plastic key card printing is actually done with pieces of three cheese pepperoni, green olive and anchovie pizza T/F.
Send me your answers – I’ll have lots of time to review them – while waiting for my hotel key card advertised pizza to be delivered. If I can hold out that is . . . Snap. Crunch. Hmmmmm. Fresh plastic ingredients. Not bad, not too bad at all, Maybe I’ll cancel that delivery . . .
