We want to understand who you are including your goals, requirements, and restrictions. This allows us to make better recommendations on product styles, materials, and decorating techniques that will help achieve your goals.
We engage with you to thoroughly understand your needs, brand strategy, target markets, and campaign budgets to deliver products that connect you with your audiences.
We make it a priority to present and carefully review different options for your specific project with you. That allows us to create and execute a plan knowing all of the parameters that are important to you, following our “do it right the first time” mindset.
We love your feedback! It is important for our business relationship to evaluate your experience with us, learn about the product performance, and implement campaign learnings into the next project.
We evolve our working together into a strategic relationship of mutual value, versus a vendor relationship.
We don’t expect you to buy something without first experiencing a sample of our work. We’re happy to let you see and feel our quality firsthand. Please keep in mind that our sample supply is always changing, so we may not have a sample of the specific product style or in the desired finish on hand.
We want to make sure our designs meet your needs. Therefore, we need to understand the goal for your campaign, your intended audience, and the experience you want to create. Based on the intended use and the weight, size, and structure of your content pieces, we will create a structural design of your binder, folder, sample display, or packaging project. In addition to the structure, we will work with you on material choices, finishing options, and accessories to complete the look and feel.
Once we have agreed on the design parameters for your project, we’ll complete a price estimate as quickly as possible. Generally, we’ll have pricing to you within 24 hours on standard items. However, additional time may be required for specialty designs.
- Templates & Mock-Ups
When you’re ready to create the artwork for your project, we’ll provide you with a template to ensure your graphics are created with score lines, glue strips, tuck flaps, and die-cutting tolerances in mind. Please know that for our CI RIGIDBOX® packaging line, our in-house design team will work with you to ensure optimal placement of your artwork, which means templates are not required. We offer mock-ups of your project to ensure sizing and functionality meet your needs.
- Artwork Preparation
Your project manager or sales representative will provide you with clear instructions on how to set up your artwork. Our team requires native files for all offset printed or foil stamped projects. Once we receive your files, our prepress team carefully reviews your artwork to ensure it will produce well on our equipment. Should you need help with your artwork preparation, please let your sales representative know.
- Proofs & Press Checks
We’ll generate a proof for your review and approval. Our project managers make the final approval process easy. Please let your sales representative or project manager know if you wish to press check your project. We would love for you to visit our facility!
Once you have approved your proof and returned it to us, your project manager will contact you with a completion date.
