BASIC FLEXOGRAPHIC

Custom printed boxes Eco Friendly Option

This is the simplest form of printing, consisting basically of a ‘rubber stamp’ style print applied directly to the cardboard on a brown or white paper liner using waterbased inks. Although 3 colour print is available, the style is best suited to the more basic 1 & 2 colour work where close registration & all over prints are not necessary. Available colours are also somewhat restricted, so PMS colour matching is not always available. Quantities as low as 500 – 1000 are possible in this format. Preparation costs start at $495 for a basic 1 colour job. Turnaround time is 2 - 3 weeks from artwork approval.

HIGH QUALITY POST PRINT (or HQPP)

Zilzie Wines wine cartons Eco Friendly Option

This is a big step up from basic Flexo, & although it is also printed directly onto the cardboard (post printed), the quality of the print is vastly superior in comparison. Up to 7 colours (with full PMS colour matching) + a basic varnish is available, & inks are again waterbased ie. environmentally friendly. Close registration & all over print is not a problem in this format (even basic 4 colour process work is possible), & the print liner can be varied to give a matt or gloss finish. The majority of our clients utilize a coated white outside liner to achieve the glossy look, & jobs are fully diecut to give a very neat finish. Preferred minimum quantities for this format are 3000 for a 12pk wine carton & 5000 for a 6pk, although smaller runs are possible in some cases. Preparation costs for a typical 3 colour print start at around $1960. Turnaround time is 6 - 7 weeks from artwork approval.

LITHOGRAPHIC

Litho cartons - high quality printing
This process involves the preprinting of a roll of paper & then laminating that sheet onto ‘singleface’ to make up the completed cardboard. Up to 7 colours (including metallic inks) again with full PMS colour matching + varnish (aqueous, matt UV or gloss UV) is available. Inks are ‘oil based’ hence not as environmentally friendly as the Flexo format. This style offers the most accurate printing with picture perfect representation, however there are few jobs produced that cannot utilize our HQPP process more economically & with probably 90% of the Litho print quality. In fact there are a number of jobs we’ve produced where experts in the field have not been able to pick our HQPP from Litho.

Litho obviously has its place in our line-up of product offerings, however we tend to be able to offer better ‘value for money’ with the HQPP. Preferred quantities for Litho start at the 5000 mark, but best value is achieved with larger runs.
