Plastic Ants


Ants for plastic label. With cartoon-style drawings. Ants maybe used so that the plastic packaging is free of ants. Because this plastic usually used for wrapping sugar. Very funny. Found in Malang, East Java.
"Semut Hitam" means Black Ant (but not 'black' in that pictures).

Turkey for Noodle

Turkey for Mie Telor (egg noodles). The pictures on this label may be influenced by Western culture. Chef with a distinctive hat and turkey (kalkun). As we know, the turkey is rarely for menu in Indonesia. Few are those who raise turkeys for cultivated. Because there's no Thanks Giving Day tradition. Written at the bottom: "serba guna mudah sekali memasaknya" means: versatile and easy to cook.  
Screen printing on paper as a label. What do you think?
