    Chris I am curious why you made a selective adjustment on the white colour in the label at the Illustrator end rather than simply adjust the white point of the entire label image in Design 3D – in the same way you adjust the white plastic for the label. If the print inks are semi transparent then they are all effected by the substrate colour. Normally I am adjusting the overall white point in Design 3D.

    Sorry, typo… I mean same way you adjust the white plastic lid, not label. Wish we could edit comments.
