bags went to print, the print buyer approved an alternate version which used florescent ink instead of the correct PMS spot colours. The outcome was disastrous, and not meeting company standards, the half million order of bags was deemed unsuitable for the American market. They were to be disposed of by the company.

They loved the design so much that an entire campaign was created from it! Suzanne's love for the planet, and her understanding of markets helped turn this printing mishap into an international success!
