When we receive the first pieces, we need to do some samples to be sure the color was accurate. Also, we did different tests on how much layer we need to print because the committee want the design to appear in both sides. The tests were also done to see the readability of the embossed text behind the pieces. With this new material, it’s important to know in which one the effigy is done.
We send our samples to Quebec where the carnival committee comes back as fast as possible to give us their approval: we were ready to produce their thousands of effigies!
