Impact & Visibility

Create impact and make yourself visible to potential customers by printing your boxes. Choosing the right print process for your packaging brand can be complicted. To help you determine what is right for your business, we have created this guide to provide easy comparison between the print quality in the print processes we offer.

Flexographic Post Print

Post-print refers to the process of printing on the corrugated sheet used for cartons after manufacturing. This process allows the reproduction of 4 colours using water-based inks and a stereo (solid printing plate) which is similar to a rubber stamp. 

It is the most common printing process used for corrugated packaging suitable for most print runs with lower resolution, solid 1-2 colour imagery such as logos and text, and is highly
cost-effective with short lead times.

The cost of creating the artwork for your box will depend on the number of colours (up to 4 colours max) required and the complexity of the artwork. A once off set up charge will apply on all artwork/designs. 


High Quality Flexographic Post Print

High Quality Flexographic printing achieves a high print resolution by applying water-based ink directly onto sheets of coated and uncoated corrugated board and can provide prints in up to 5 colours plus varnish. 

This printing method is a cost effective per unit solution suitable for high resolution imagery such as photographs with gloss varnish, in medium to large volume runs with medium lead times.

The cost of creating the artwork for your box will depend on the number of colours (up to 6 colours max including varnish) required and the complexity of the artwork. A once off set up charge will apply on all artwork/designs. 


Lithographic Post Print

Printing directly onto high-quality coated sheet, then laminating this paper onto corrugated board. 

This printing method is a superior print solution suitable for high resolution imagery such as photographs with gloss varnish, in large volume runs with medium lead times. Litho laminate printing allows for accurate, intricate die-cutting, which makes it ideal for packaging purposes.

The cost of creating the artwork for your box will depend on the number of colours (up to 7 colours max) required and the complexity of the artwork. A once off set up charge will apply on all artwork/designs. 


Digital Print

CMYK printing to coated corrugated board.

This printing method is a superior print solution suitable for high resolution imagery such as photographs, in small volume runs with short lead times.

The cost of creating the artwork for your box will depend on the size of your box and the amount of ink coverage required.
