Alien (1979): “Balaji Imperial” Cigarettes Pack Replica

Posted in Design, Physical Object with tags , , , , , on March 11, 2017 by Staff Writer

After a lot of on-and-off work, I’ve finally printed, cut and folded my first set of Balaji Imperial cigarettes replicas:


Here’s a sample of the files associated with this project:

I made multiple versions of the box art, and two versions of a hypothetical tax stamp as well. The package art shown in the big photo above is as close to screen-accurate as I can get, given the references. Some of the smaller text I had to guess at, and the art on the top flap is speculative as well.

The die-line was tricky as well, and still needs to be improved in places.

Balaji Imperial Replica Project Update: September 1, 2015

It took quite a bit of looking, but I was able to find and purchase some glossy tan cardstock. And it is exactly the right color.

Assuming everything goes as planned, I will be able to offer an inkjet-printed, die-cut / perforated, un-assembled flat pack, which you will then score, punch out and assemble yourself.

No ETA yet, no price yet.
