What We Do
Design & Innovation
Our integrated design studio offers a full CAD service supported by our ‘Mellow Colour’ certified colour management system. All of our printers are trained in the use of this colour management technology. We have computer to plate technology on site.
From a ‘blue sky’ customer brief to replication of an existing carton or sleeve the Cartonage team can offer the full concept to print service. Collectively our design team has more than 50 years of constructional & functional design & development experience. We are confident that we will be able to deliver even the most challenging design brief! Our design process ALWAYS takes into consideration the individual processing capability of our customer’s packing facility. We work directly with our customers operations teams in situ to ensure that our carton or sleeve is ‘fit for purpose’ & offers the best commercial advantage.
Cartonage provides NPD samples FOC & can provide fully printed mock ups. We will always support line trials with samples. The Cartonage sales team are technically trained & are able to support at all stages of the development process.
We can produce any style of carton board carton or sleeve
Cartonage/KOJ have two, six colour presses with UV & Emulsion coaters.
We use only low migration inks at our Cartonage site to ensure that there is no migration from pack to product
We can offer single sheet print but are also excellent composite printers. Our bespoke print processes & systems have been developed & refined to ensure 100% management of non mixed batches.
We care about our environment & have reused/recycled 770 tonnes of waste this year.
We sent ZERO to landfill!
