Quotations

Once we have sufficient information from our customers or prospective customers, we can quote for the product they require. After the quotation has been approved and accepted, we proceed to the next stage.

Artwork Proofing

The client’s artwork needs to be checked with our team to ensure that it is print ready, and that it matches the specifications for the process we use. We then provide a PDF file for the client’s approval. Once we have received written approval of the artwork, we order the plates.

Lamination

If the job is for a butterwrap foil design, we manufacture the foil in-house on a purpose-built laminator before we print it. The work is adjusted to suit the size of the specification. The foil is then cured for forty-eight hours.

Printing

Once the artwork has been approved by the client, and the plates have been ordered, no further changes can be made. We always advise clients to read and check the proofs carefully before approval, as changes after this point will lead to delays in printing and delivery. Each substrate is printed separately. In the case of Superview or Clearview designs, the wax bands and the centre panels are printed as separate operations.

Converting

Once the printing process has been completed, the product is moved to the slitting machines where it is cut to the dimensions specified by the customer. In the case of Superview and Clearview, the product is then moved to the Superview machines for the final conversion to the finished product.

Dispatch

The finished product is wrapped and labelled, and dispatched to the customer. The pallet will contain the delivery docket, with details of the product and its purpose, and will display the customer’s name, address, order number and any other details requested by the customer.
