Custom Printing

Custom Cardboard Box Printing

Print Specifications

Give your custom carton that extra look of professionalism with your logo or unique artwork design printed onto the outside.

Our printing options and services include:

Flexographic

‘Flexo’ is a relatively cheap print method, suitable for producing single colour, medium quality images on corrugated cardboard. Often used for shipping boxes, it can give a resolution down to around 1mm.

Screen Printing

Screen Printing produces a sharper and more detailed image on a cardboard box.  It is often used to brand die cut boxes for presentation or shipping.  It is suitable for 1 or 2 colour printing.  Halftones can be used to create different shades of these colours.

Graphic Design

We can put you in touch with reasonably priced, professional graphic artists who can assist you with the development of your artwork.

Run Size

We have a minimum printing run of 200 sheets.

File Formats

  • Print files need to be in eps or ai vector file formats.
  • PDF are acceptable if they contain high resolution graphics and not embedded images.
  • JPG PNG and bitmap formats can sometimes be used to create a quote. However they are not acceptable for final print format.
