Versatile technology and highly qualified employees make for the best results
We make more of your packaging
Our printers are characterised by their technical knowledge, experience and a sixth sense for colours. They convert your ideas to the printed format as well as monitoring and controlling the entire printing process. Their responsibilities also include the set-up and maintenance of our specialised Swiss manufacturing lines.
The printing is carried out with photographic quality. In doing so, you can choose from flexographic, screen and letterpress printing. When it comes to digital printing, we work in conjunction with high performance print partners. In addition to the standard finish types (gloss and matt) different finishes can also be partially applied to an image, and special inks can be used. For example, these include inks with Iriodin pigments, or scented properties or with soft-touch surfaces. Our innovative procedures also include the application of Braille or Inviseam printing. Thanks to our internal graphics department, we are able to ensure a flexible and rapid procedure as well as personal consultation regarding the development and realisation of your products.
We are happy to face any challenge and pay attention to even the smallest of details. We are true to the "nothing is impossible" motto, and like to think of ourselves as our customer's "wish-maker".
Our flexographic printing capacities can use up to 10 print stations and, alongside colours and finishes (gloss, matt, semi matt) we are also able to offer cold and hot film embossing as well as screen printing.
When it comes to letterpress printing, we work with up to 6 colours + varnish (gloss or matt). This simple printing procedure also offers the opportunity for photo-printing (CMYK) and is slightly cheaper compared to flexographic printing.
