Custom, creative packaging made easy with Chromagraphics
We can provide the knowledge and technical expertise to develop with you and your team amazing custom packaging. Together we can produce product containment packaging, dimensional portfolios, promotional kits, slip cases, book set cases and many other unique packaging projects. Chromagraphics can provide a one source turnkey approach from concept creation, engineering the working dimensions and product functionality, prototyping, providing templates for your graphic designers to lay out your artwork itself, to the actual printing and packaging production. We can also supply you with interactive 3D proofs allowing 360º rotation.
Turned edge package construction
For those projects requiring a higher end look, we produce turned edge packages. These entail printing flat sheets and then mounting those to binder board in such a manner that no unfinished edges are visible on the final product. Turned edge products are typically film laminated to prevent any cracking along those tight turns of the mounted sheet wrapping around the binder board edges.
Mounted corrugated package construction
Another popular and more budget oriented box construction method is mounting directly to various thicknesses of corrugated material. You can choose to mount your printed graphics to one or both surfaces of the corrugated. Different gauges of fluted corrugated materials are available for you to choose from and some are available with a white surface on one or both sides as a small upgrade from the traditional brownish kraft paper color. This is a nice option when only mounting to one side to leave the unprinted side white and not the brown kraft color.
Direct print onto substrate package construction
Some more budget-oriented packages can be manufactured via printing onto a thicker coated cover material without the expense of mounted corrugated or turned edge construction. These are generally smaller dimensioned finished products where the thinner wall construction still offers enough dimensional stability for the overall piece where mounting to a thicker substrate is not necessary.
Closures and other packaging special effects
There are numerous available closure methods you can choose from including magnets, tabs and slots, Velcro, mechanical latches, buttons and many others depending on the box type and of course your budget.
We can help you navigate through the various box styles, available materials, coatings, film laminating, embellishments such as, UV coatings, foil stamping, debossing, diecutting and many other special effects that are best suited for your packaging needs. What can look like a confusing and technically difficult project for you to tackle can be made easy with our help, expertise and guidance from project conception all the way through production and kitting/fulfillment.
