US - 22 years since the iconic Barbasol Shaving Cream can appeared in the original Jurassic Park film as a vessel for smuggling dinosaur embryos, Perio Inc – the parent company of Barbasol – has introduced two unique, limited-edition shaving cream cans to represent and support Steven Spielberg’s new Jurassic World film.
Crown Aerosol Packaging North America’s Midwest Graphics Lithography Center worked closely with Perio to ensure that each of the cans, which feature Velociraptors and Pteranodons illustrations integrated with the recognizable Barbasol shaving cream striped packaging, were printed according to the designs created by artist Mark Englert - the same artist whom Universal Pictures enlisted to create Jurassic World movie posters for last year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
“Not only are we thrilled about our partnership with Universal Pictures to celebrate the new Jurassic World film,” said Sarah Paulson, Brand Manager with Perio, “but we are also excited to work with Crown to capture these unique designs on our cans.”
“We had a lot of fun working on this project with Perio,” explains Melissa Quintana, Marketing Manager with Crown Aerosol Packaging North America. “Everyone on our team, from printing to manufacturing, took pride in showcasing the new film in the iconic series.”
Just recently, the effort made by Crown’s team to meticulously print the limited-edition Jurassic World Barbasol cans was recognized by the International Metal Decorators Association (IMDA). Crown received the ‘Excellence in Quality’ award at the IMDA show in May 2015.
