We’re sometimes asked if we design and print packaging. The simple answer is ‘yes’ because, to us, it’s just another natural use of our in-house design and printing capabilities. Southside Print can handle pretty much any type of printing imaginable and packaging is no exception. So, you are not limited to just the standard kind of thing, like brochures, stationery and flyers. We regularly produce high quality printing for packaging items too. These include anything from cartons and swing tickets to bags. The list of possibilities is almost endless, a few examples being:
- Printed labels and stickers including wine labels, special offer stickers, pricing labels etc.;
- Cartons for products;
- Boxes of various kinds;
- Printed bags;
- Printed cardboard sleeves, e.g. to wrap around boxed products;
- Header cards for retail products including ‘Euro’ slots if required;
- Swing tickets;
- ‘Pillow’ packs;
- Packaging ‘inners’ and backing cards e.g. for products in clam packs, blister packs and cello packs;
- Point of sale (‘POS’) or Point of Purchase (‘POP’) card dispensers;
Printed literature for packaged products
We also routinely produce the kind of printed literature that you find inside product packaging. This includes instruction manuals, assembly instruction sheets, information pamphlets, warranty documents, guarantee registration cards, vouchers for cross-selling, catalogues, price lists, order forms and so on. If it involves printing on paper, card or board, we can print it!
Advanced print finishing techniques to make your packaging stand out
As well as our digital printing facilities, we also have a whole range of in-house ‘print finishing’ options to make your printed packaging really stand out. Options include lamination (matt, gloss etc.), encapsulation, gloss U.V. varnish including spot varnishing, die-cutting to give your packaging non-standard shapes, traditional hot foil stamping and digital foiling. We can also perforate, score, crease, fold, collate, drill holes, add eyelets, ribbons, add and affix glue tabs, and so on. So, please remember that we’re a print finisher as well as being a printer.
With talented graphic designers and finished artists in-house too, we are more than happy to produce the graphics, design layouts and finished artwork for your printed packaging items. We’ll make them look fantastic, communicate what needs to be said, and show off any products inside to best effect. We’ll also ensure any shaped cartons and boxes (etc.) assemble perfectly, of course.
