Silkscreen

Silkscreen

A very effective way of printing, it is especially good in reproducing Gravure finishes and colours as it uses the same ink technologies.

Laser Cutting

Laser Cutting

Aides the production of larger mock ups and is a great and very quick way to test cutters before they are made into Dies.

Precise Cutting
Precise Cutting

A piece of machinery that is very time saving and saves hundreds in time and checking of expensive cutter and crease guides before they are made

Digital Formats

Our art worker can work with all digital art working formats, and Photoshop formats.

Business

We can take design files from agencies and create full printable separated artworks including finalising spot colour channels from CMYK, layout adjustments, as well as adapting layouts to include migration logo’s from brand to brand, market to market.

3D Designs

All we need is a cutter guide and your design and then the software will create a fully movable 3D PDF.

Digital Artwork

We also have Esko software, which is a very clever program that enables your design to be viewed in a 3D format before it is printed.


Silkscreen

Silkscreen is one of the oldest printing methods historically used in ancient China and although we like to keep up with all aspects of modern printing technics, it is still a very effective way of printing, it is especially good in reproducing Gravure finishes and colours as it uses the same ink technologies as production presses.

Screening produces second to none Metallic, Pearlesant, Diffuser effect, high build varnishes(Gloss, Satin and Matt), and Merck pigment colours along with all other conventional uses for the process.

Laser Cutting

Having this machine has also saved on producing small quantities where the purchase of an expensive cutter and creaser simply would not be cost effective, it also saves the time of cutting and creasing by hand which we used to do all the time on large boxes and cartons.

Because it uses the same digital file as the artwork it is as accurate as the file, and slight changes can be made instantly if the cutter is not working correctly.

Cutting and Creasing

These can be made in 24 hours(sometimes less) and the more complex designs in 48 hours.

These forms of cutters are good for long runs and multiple packs where the laser cutter would be to slow.

These cutters can be used to cut out thin plastic and metal along with all forms of paper up to 3mm thick.

Hand cutting and creasing is still available as we like to mix the new with the old, and this also makes us extremely flexible on timings and budget.

New Cold Foiling

We have just completed the testing stage of the cold foiling process and we are happy to now add this to the list of services that we can offer.

The range of foils is not as large as the the normal hot foils that we keep in stock, but new colours are being added on a regular basis.

We mainly use Kurz foils but also have in stock all major foil manufacture’s shade cards and stock of many of the most popular foils available.
