Customer service is our top priority, and it’s our goal to become your flexible packaging partner.

Our customers find the ability to order to demand, thereby reducing costly inventory and obsolescence, a real game changer, especially for small and medium size businesses.
What are the benefits of digital printing vs. conventional printing?
GREAT question! Digital printing eliminates many of the steps in the conventional printing process, making it much faster and more efficient. Some of the benefits of digital printing include:
- Low minimum orders
- No plate or setup fees
- Run multiple SKUs in one job
- Short turnaround time (5 business days for roll stock and 15 business days for finished pouches)
- Ability to print high-definition quality graphics and match existing product line designs
- The use of variable data and graphics which make it possible to create customized packaging to:
- Meet the needs of select target markets
- Run unique marketing campaigns & promotions
- Enable track and trace technology
- Verify your product’s authenticity
- Set yourself apart from the competition
Is digital printing less expensive than conventional?
In most cases, yes. Digital printing eliminates the need for investment in plates and cylinders, reduces waste and eliminates obsolesete inventory. It produces short runs more economically, and in cases where variable data and multiple SKUs are involved (or fast turnaround time is needed), medium run length jobs are competitively priced. Shipping costs are also substantially reduced when ordering locally.
