Normally, black looks very traditional.  But when used as a background color and juxtaposed against sharp yellow, pink or blue, it looks very modern. 

We’ve seen this popping up in packaging over the last couple of years.  Selfridges & Co. shopping packages and Selfridges & Co. wine are a few examples.  Wrigley’s 5(TM) Gum is another example.  Starbucks(TM) Black Apron Coffee packaging is another.

Now, the look is coming to promotional products, too.  These are some new additions to our product line.

    I feel gray background with sharp magenta will be better, more artistic and fashional.
