Ways to print custom boxes
Therefore, he has decided to request a custom chart and is now analyzing the various options for printing his custom chart. Most people want to know what the printing methods are and how they are used in the boxes. Well, there are three main printing methods used in the manufacturing industry. These are flexographic printing, digital printing and lithographic lamination. These methods are used and applied to your logos and your creative arts in relation to what is needed. The first and cheapest way is flexographic printing.
Fold it until you do
Flexographic printing is a type of printing procedure that uses a flexible plate. It has been compared to a "modern version of typography" and can be used in almost any type of material, such as plastic, metallic cellophane, paper, etc. It is also the most basic form of printing available because it is available in 1 to 3 colors. Flexographic has built a reputation for being used in simple projects.
Let's go digital
Then we have digital printing, one of the latest forms of printing. It was invented in 1991 and can be divided into two additional subcategories, inkjet and xerographic. Digital printing is still considered very profitable, the main difference between digital and flexographic is that digital uses a full range of colors for printing.
Finally, it is laminated with Litho, which is often considered the highest quality and expensive. When you are litholamine, insert a printed press sheet on the board and then continue punching and processing in the box. Lithography lamination gives you much better quality than digital printing and flexographic printing.
It's all about money.
However, when choosing a type of printing, your biggest concern will be the price. Usually, it costs less to add a type of print to your box than people generally think they do. Studies show that adding a color print results in 10% compared to the actual field price. In fact, higher quality printing generally costs more, but in the long run, paying for printing is probably one of the cheapest bills. When considering a type of printing, think about how quickly you need it. Research has shown that Flexographic has a high printing speed (how fast something is pressed), varying from 200 to 300 fpm (feet per minute), while digital printing has low printing speeds running at an average of 50 at 100 fpm. One of the important questions to ask the manufacturer is how long it will take and compare it with other manufacturers to see an estimate of the total price. In the big picture of things over the years, you can see that the total average time for custom box production is now 3 to 5 business days. For more information visit this website
There are alternatives to printing methods, e.g.
- Drawing of the design itself
- Using stickers
- Print at home
Buy if you want to look as professional as possible, I suggest you join the large number of people who use manufacturers to print designs for them. Technology is changing exponentially fast, no one knows where it is going, so maybe the future of printing is changing and these methods are considered old.
