Now everyone will emphasize the color of the product, to make people “a bright spot”, this “bright” is a visual reflection of the color. And color plays a decisive role in the product, is the first step to distinguish from other similar products, get consumers’ attention and purchase.

Color is also very important in terms of brand recognition and product recognition.

But what kind of red is it? Mandarin? Pink? Rose red? This way to communicate color, in fact, the water cup factory is not clear. If you run into an inexperienced factory or a factory with insufficient capacity, you are in trouble. Unqualified factories will say “OK, no problem.
