Yes, we offer comprehensive packaging design consultation services. Our team of experts can work closely with you to understand your brand identity, target audience, and product requirements, and develop a packaging solution that aligns with your goals and objectives.

Absolutely. We understand the importance of visualizing the final product before committing to full production. We offer prototyping and mock-up services, allowing you to review and approve the packaging design, materials, and construction before proceeding with the actual manufacturing run.

Our minimum order quantity for custom printed packaging varies depending on the specific project requirements and materials involved. Generally, we can accommodate small runs starting from 500 units, but larger quantities may be preferred for more cost-effective pricing.

Printing & Finishing

Yes, we have the capability to print on both the interior and exterior surfaces of the packaging. This can be particularly useful for including additional branding, instructions, or messaging inside the package.

Absolutely. In addition to standard printing techniques, we offer specialty printing options like spot varnish, metallic inks, and specialized coatings to create unique visual effects and enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of your packaging.

Absolutely. Our engineering team can provide valuable input on structural design elements related to protection, preservation, opening features, reclosability, stacking, display, and more. We take into account factors like product fragility, distribution environment, and end-user handling.

Certainly. Our team of packaging experts has extensive knowledge and experience in matching the right materials and finishes to specific product types and applications. We can provide valuable guidance and recommendations to ensure your packaging solution not only looks stunning but also provides the necessary protection and functionality for your products.

We can accept and work with all common file formats, including PDF, AI, EPS, PSD, and INDD. Our pre-press team will review the files and make any necessary adjustments or conversions to ensure optimal printing results.

We have an exceptionally talented in-house design team that can handle all aspects of packaging design, from initial concepts to final production-ready artwork. However, we also collaborate with external designers if clients have existing relationships or preferences.

We employ advanced color management techniques and utilize specialized color profiling systems to ensure color consistency across different substrates and materials. Our prepress team carefully calibrates our printing equipment and conducts rigorous testing to maintain accurate color reproduction, regardless of the material used.

While our primary focus is on packaging design, printing, and converting, we can coordinate with trusted partners to provide packaging assembly and fulfillment services upon request. This can include tasks such as package construction, product insertion, and distribution.

Sample Service

We offer extensive expertise in specialty closures like magnetic flaps, tuck ends, integral slide boxes, origami folds, interlocking designs, reusable sealing mechanisms and child-resistant or senior-friendly openings.

Yes, our factory houses a versatile range of printing and converting equipment tailored to efficiently handle a wide spectrum of run sizes – from a few hundred units on digital devices to mass production capabilities on larger offset presses.

Color densities are rigorously measured and calibrated every 500 sheets by the press manager during the print run to ensure extremely tight color consistencies well within G7 tolerances.

We utilize stringent multilevel visual inspections under specialized lighting coupled with instrumental testing of critical parameters like colorimetry, sealing strength, compression resistance and microbiological thresholds at advanced in-house laboratories.

While significant changes can impact timelines, our digital capabilities do allow for accommodation of some late-stage copy or content changes within reasonable parameters if absolutely necessary.

Absolutely, our technical team includes packaging engineers and compliance experts who can guide you through requirements like food safety validation, transportation testing, customs declarations or environmental regulatory processes.

Production & Quality

We utilize an integrated digital platform to choreograph documentation workflows spanning design history records, version control, machine data capture, quality test evidence archiving, and final product certification to simplify searches and analytics.

Yes, we provide free pre-production samples, usually in the form of digital print proofs or production-level mockups, so you can thoroughly evaluate and approve the print quality, color accuracy, finishing results, and overall execution before committing to full production.

Certainly, our design team can generate detailed 3D models, renderings, or 360° virtual views of the proposed packaging to provide preliminary visualizations before physical sampling. This allows you to evaluate the design intent digitally.

Absolutely. Our engineering team can provide valuable input on structural design elements related to protection, preservation, opening features, reclosability, stacking, display, and more. We take into account factors like product fragility, distribution environment, and end-user handling.

We combine digitally-controlled cutting equipment calibrated to within a 0.25mm tolerance with multi-point automated vision inspection stations capable of detecting subtle structural defects via AI-enabled diagnostic algorithms accurate to a 97% degree.

Absolutely, we encourage customers to mark up approved samples with any change requests related to graphics, finishes, dielines or construction for fine-tuning prior to production. Our team can efficiently implement revisions.

 Our process includes furnishing both digital PDF proofs for content approvals as well as pre-production analog proofs for color and finish verification prior to full production. This gives you total confidence upfront.

We make sample production a priority and can usually produce and ship (via express courier) physical samples within 4-7 business days of finalizing the design. Digital samples are even faster within 1-2 days.
