Digital Printing

Advanced digital printing for your flexible packaging needs. We use HP Indigo 20000 printers that don’t require plates, which means no set-up fees.

Even better, digital printing has significantly less lead time, so you can get to market quicker while never having to compromise on looks. Need to change designs seasonally or have a lot of SKUs to print? Digital printing allows just that as there are lower minimum orders and easy design change capabilities.

Conventional Printing

Rotogravure or flexographic printing is known for guaranteeing consistency across large volume printing. These printing methods use high-speed rotary plates which are great for high-quality image reproduction — even on the thinnest of substrates.

This is our client’s go-to when they know they will continually need to print the same ongoing design in large volumes. While there are usually more upfront costs with plates, you can be sure to save in the long run.
