offset printing
Our Offset Printing will give you the ability to print on any stock from 60lb. to 28pt. We also print on challenging substrate such as: foilboard, plastic, and static cling. And with our inline coater we are able to further enhance your printing with gloss, satin, soft touch, as well as metallic coating.
Our die cutting is geared for the shorter runs which gives us the ability to get those smaller jobs done without incurring large cost and sacrificing the quality of your projects.
folding and gluing
For folding and gluing, our production line adopts a vacuum adsorption belt conveyor. When it comes to enclosing or protecting products for distribution storage, sales and use, we ensure a strong bond is maintained for the integrity of each carton.

reverse end tuck top box
Reverse End Tuck Top

Is a box with top and bottom closing flaps placed on opposite sides of the packaging. The box is popped open from either the top or bottom, with both flaps being closed after the product is inside. The box is glued on one side. These boxes make good economic sense and are able to be stocked closely together. However, a weak cut edge on the front panel can run into window material when closed.
reverse tuck end box
Reverse Tuck End

Same as a STE but the custom reverse tuck end ends tuck and lock on opposite panels. The custom RTE is a more cost effective chipboard box than an custom STE due to the fact that you can have more boxes print on a sheet.
standard reverse tuck box
Standard Reverse Tuck

The joint on the Standard Reverse Tuck carton is located at the seam along the right side panel, in the rear. The closure panels on top and bottom swing in opposite directions, with the bottom folding in the rear and the top folding in front. This carton can be assembled either manually or by automation. With a friction lock closure on top and a slit lock tuck closure on bottom, as shown here, the carton is easy to open and close, while remaining unlikely to open inadvertently at its base.
standard straight tuck box
Standard Straight Tuck

This style is suitable for products requiring a primary display panel with a large window. With fold/tuck closures in the back, the raw edges at both ends of the front display panel are concealed. The Standard Straight Tuck also obviates any interference between the window film material and the tuck, which might occur if a reverse tuck style were to be used. This carton is suitable for manual assembling, as well as automated assembling and closing applications.
tuck top snap lock bottom box
Tuck Top Snap Lock Bottom

Same as a TTAB but the bottom is not pre-glued. The custom tuck top snap lock bottom has four flaps that are folded and locked to form the bottom. It has a stronger bottom vs. the auto bottom, less expensive to manufacture, but takes longer to assemble.
walker-lock tray box
Walker-Lock Tray

Formed from a single piece of combined board, the design features an unbroken bottom, and several layers of corrugated in the end panels. Trays are not shipping containers, but they are frequently used as inner containers for parts, delicate produce, letter mail and other products, or as elements of display stands.
