These are not the answers to all the questions you may have for us, but maybe you can find the ones you are looking for. For everything else - call, write, ask…
It cannot because each process has its course and time for each phase. Any forced acceleration necessarily leads to skipping certain stages and checkpoints, which most often leads to errors, and those to unforeseen costs, repetition, and ultimately, longer delays. Our responsibility for preparing the packaging production underlines your responsibility for the entire project. Therefore, let’s plan the process together to reserve the necessary time for you and free you of worries about packaging.
We do not produce boxes (and other packaging), but we do everything that comes before producing boxes and all other types of packaging – we do design, photography, illustrations, design adaptations, artwork, 3D models, repro, proofs, mockups, printing control…
It is THE file of all files in graphic design. It contains the exact design of the packaging, all the necessary dimensions, the design translated into the language of the printing press, the elements arranged as they will ultimately look, all the declarations and other printing elements – all ready for repro.
It is a file specially prepared for a particular printing machine, with all the information about the order of color printing, separations for each of them, and press-cutters, partial varnish, embossing, and all other processes in graphic production. In other words, repro is a suitcase in which artwork travels to the production.
Each computer, tablet, or smartphone varies in the color display depending on the technology, type of display, and setting method. That’s why one and the same file will look different on each. Therefore, it is best to make a final judgment about the colors based on a standardized and reliable sample, a proof.
The proof plays a crucial role in predicting and approving the desired result before printing. The print needs to be made by a standardized method that faithfully reproduces the prepress file and is equally relevant for both designers and the printing house. This significantly contributes to efficiency and prevents unnecessary costs and delays.
It is a technical surface defined by the shape and type of packaging that remains visible after the formation of packaging and can contain and present design elements well. Let’s take a rectangular label as the simplest form of packaging and imagine that it is a label that wraps around the bottle and folds in a width of 1 cm. Its printing surface will be the only visible one. Therefore, a declaration cannot be placed below the fold.
It is a fantastic innovation that allows us to see every (even the slightest) change on the packaging on a three-dimensional model in real-time. If we literally move just one letter on the declaration, we can instantly see what it looks like in 3D. We can rotate and view the object from all angles and create high-quality spatial representations that we can use as presentation models.
When used in graphic circles, this term means “translating” a two-dimensional representation into a three-dimensional one and creating a model representing the object in space. Used in domain of prepress for packaging it means the creation of a digital packaging model.
A natural scale design (M 1: 1) is an object drawn in actual size. The scale (M) indicates the ratio of the size of the object in the drawing (1) and its actual size (1). So, a thumbnail of 180 x 180 pixels in size at a 76 dpi resolution certainly cannot contain a draft of the euro pallet (1200 cm x 800 cm) at a scale of 1: 1
That’s our specialty. Our models realistically represent a future product in dimensions 1: 1, identical colors (includes white and metallic), foil printing, glossy and matte varnishes, embossing, identical material (foils, papers, plastics…). We can produce multiple pieces and bulk packaging mockups as well.
Yes, we do. The creativity and knowledge of our designers guarantee exceptional solutions that meet the highest standards of technology and ecology.
It is the most important document in the entire process of packaging production. The brief defines all the requirements related to the given packaging, either in terms of technical implementation, packaging process, or marketing strategy. The brief must clearly convey the task to the graphic studio and provide all relevant information and documents such as blueprints, designs, volumes, types of printing technique, types of materials, declarations, symbols, logos, important references, and all other essential elements.
