Owens take an overall view of packaging. We always keep the brief in mind. The product’s characteristics, the end consumer and any transportation requirements. Plus how the end product will be
displayed and sold.
We have years of experience in typography, print and carton design. We produce designs and layouts that not only look good but are practical and cost effective when it comes to final production.
We’ll produce CAD samples in the correct material for final size and functionality checks. Minor changes and re-sampling are easy at this stage before any cutting tools are produced.
We can also digitally print and CAD cut samples to give a perfect impression of the finished article.
Once the samples are finalised and approved, the artwork is fitted to the cutter guides and we run pdf and digital proofs. In-house proofing and CTP (computer to plate) allow us to speed up the whole process for clients. From pdf to press takes only minutes and ensures a quick turnaround.
Our state of the art colour press runs paper and board from 60gsm to 1.00mm thickness. With on press colour controls, quality and consistency are assured at all times. Inline coating and drying mean that sheets are ready for finishing almost immediately.
Flexibility and quick make ready times enable us to accommodate short-run work at a competitive price.
Our print finishing is also done in-house to achieve fast turnaround times. Form cutting and gluing on packaging and cartons; folding, collating and stitching etc on commercial print jobs.
We have both automated and hand finishing for flexibility and practical suitability.
