Featured Customer: Cooper’s Coffee

Let’s be honest: few things are as important as coffee. It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning…it’s the perfect excuse to take a break at work…it’s a safe topic of conversation in these politically divided times.

That’s why when Cooper’s Coffee asked us to design boxes for their amazing (and truly eye-opening) products, we jumped at the chance like a jumping coffee bean. We also used it as another reason to immediately go out and get a cup of coffee. (You know…for quality assurance purposes).

Customer of the Month: Six Month Smiles

In a recent survey, more than 40 percent of people reported that they feel like they’re judged based on their appearance. 40 percent! Are you one of them?

We all want to look our best, and that means having a smile worth, well, smiling about. But not all of us want the long term commitment that braces or other complicated dental procedures often require. Not to mention, once you’re past your teenage years, you may feel insecure about walking around with a mouth full of metal.

Six Month Smiles

That’s where Six Month Smiles, this month’s Customer of the Month, comes in.

Litho Box Printing Versus Direct Printing

As you finalize your box design and are getting ready to print your custom boxes, you may have questions about which process will work best for you. First, you’ll need to decide between litho printing and direct printing. Though both processes use the latest technology to create crisp prints, the method you choose will ultimately depend on your specific needs. In this post, we’ll explain the difference between direct and litho printing methods.

Direct Printing
Direct Print Boxes - Flexo Print
If you need a more basic, less expensive, and perhaps faster printing process, then you may want to consider direct printing. The process is just as the name would imply: here, the colored ink is stamped “directly” onto your corrugated box through the use of a printing plate. Depending on the number of different colors used in your design, it may need to make a second pass through the machine. The direct printing process uses flexographic, or “flexo”, technology, and is ideal for clients that have settled on a design and would like to keep their custom printing plates for a longer period of time. It can also be more economical than litho printing, saving you money as you get your business off the ground or work to get out of the red. If the graphics on your box are more minimalist in nature, this may be the process for you.
