Packaging for the "fast moving consumer goods" market plays a vital role in promoting the product to the customer, as well as in carrying informative and legislative detail. Combining these roles requires commercial awareness, detailed knowledge of the relevant technologies, creative care and consideration of the effects of colors, typefaces, and images that must support the brand.

• *the printing technologies
• *their relevance to the labeling formats or structural package
• *the application of the label to the structural package
• *the development of artwork
• *the use and impact of labeling on a range of consumer products
• *some legal considerations The book concludes with a chapter on future labeling systems.
