Graphic Design Services and Prepress
Our graphic design team is experienced in design for flexographic packaging. When creating a design or fine-tuning it prior to plate production, every aspect of the final printing process is taken into consideration.
Digital Film Imaging
Using graphic files in many popular file formats, we are able to produce negative film colour separations in sheets up to 36" by 44" up to 2400 dpi according to your supplied specifications. Our film of choice is AGFA's Impower Plus 4 mil matte film with superior emulsion characteristics.
The proof plays an essential role in a successful packaging design. Our Roland CammJet large format printer provides proofs on various substrates to meet your needs.
- ColorProof: Full size design print with high quality resolution and colour simulating spot colour and process colour designs.
- ScreenProof: Using our Flexographic RIP, the design is printed using the necessary screen ruling in process colour, giving an effect of the final print job's appearance.
- LabelProof: Printed on either a matte or gloss vinyl with required diecut, LabelProof allows a true design feeling with the ability to apply the proof to the actual product.
- PackProof: Using a special prototyping paper, PackProof is the perfect fit for packaging in the design stages. In combination with custom diecut scoring and a reduced scale print of the packaging design, the mockup can be assembled to represent a corrugated box, allowing the true effect of the carton shape and design.
