Project Management

We will work with you to determine if your project would be best suited for stock or custom packaging.  More details to come...


Packaging Design

There is a misconception that custom packaging is too expensive, difficult, or unsuitable. In reality, a custom package is often a viable option when there is an understanding of all the variables and finding the proper fit.

  • Bottle Surface Treatment
    • The surface treatment is the modern version of “flame treating” a plastic bottle. Flame treating is the application of a flame to the bottle surface to remove contaminants that would prevent the screen print from adhering.
  • Silk Screen Printing
    • A method of printing in which the ink is forced through a design on a taut screen, made of nylon, wire, or other tough screen material, onto the container to be printed. This method can be applied to closures, liners, and most containers regardless of shape or size.
  • Heat Transfer Labeling - also known as Therimage
    • The generic term is heat transfer labeling. Process in which a label is applied to a container by heating the label and the surface of the bottle. The heating of the label activates the adhesive on it. After the application, the labeled container is flamed to set the label. Used for decorating plastic bottles, glass bottles, and folding cartons.
  • Pressure Sensitive Labeling
    • Also called self-adhesive or adhesive-backed labels, a pressure-sensitive label is applied with light pressure and can stick to most surfaces and containers. Pressure-sensitive labels can handle a multitude of labeling projects because they can be printed on papers, films, and foils.
  • Hot Die Stamping
    • This decorating technique utilizes a die (design) that cuts metal foils from a ribbon and by heat, embosses the design onto the surface of the plastic containers. Often used in conjunction with silkscreening on cosmetic containers such as those used for shampoos and conditioners.
  • Sleeve Labeling
    • A decorated, plastic label made into a tubular form that fits over and on plastic bottles.
  • Heat Shrink Decorated Bands
    • Pre-decorated plastic sleeves that are slipped over the container and heated until they conform to the surface of the container. Same principle as the sleeve label, but superior for odd and small shapes.
  • Cold Colors - Organic Inks
  • Deco Effects - frosted, hi-gloss, metallic, acid-etched, water transfer, and more.
