MLC-3 Mini-Rig Cromalin
This is a cromalin print of the box for the MLC-3 mini-rig. As you can see, the entire unfolded box is printed on this one sheet.

Some of the interesting things about this piece are the markups, scribbled in marker to suggest modifications. Here you see a closeup of one of them. Part of it indicates that the TM abbreviations should be added to the trademark titles on the package. In another spot a notation makes a reference to the final packaging proofs that would have followed this test print.

Finally, here is the sign-off tag, which provided a spot on which the identities of the people who had reviewed this version of the prototype could be recorded.

The original photoart that served as the masters for the images on this cromalin can be seen here.
