For years, we have been manufacturing a particular case in a pearl-coloured cardboard with a very high price as it is usual with this special cardboards. The factory did not inform us that it was no longer going to be produced, which led us to fulfil our client’s needs with a different material with the same look and in a record time. We took as base a standard cardboard and after different tests there was approved one of the options whose finishes with pigments, pearl colours, plastics and varnishes were not at all inferior to the previous solution.
The result was: 1. Obtaining the same appearance, 2. Saving money for the client in the folding-box cost, 3. Eliminating the stocks of a difficult rotation raw materials.
