Premium rigid boxes

Binding cardboard is a very strong material that is used for the production of premium packaging and printed products.

Initially, book covers were made from bound cardboard, so that books could remain intact for many years. Today, gift boxes and packaging for high-end goods are made from bound cardboard.

ATTOLIS uses bound cardboard to produce strong, beautiful boxes and covers for premium catalogs and brochures.  

 

Binding cardboard as a material for making packaging is in demand for several reasons:

  • high quality packaging and attractive appearance;
  • damage resistance. Binding cardboard packaging can withstand even a large load, at which the packaging made of ordinary cardboard is most likely to deform;
  • premium binding cardboard packaging adds value to the content;
  • a variety of design options. Due to the fact that the box is assembled from a variety of parts that can be cut into any size, the use of binding cardboard makes it possible to implement almost any idea with additional inserts and walls.

Digital printing

Digital printing


Digital printing - transferring an image onto cardboard or paper using a laser, inkjet printer or printing machine. Application of paint directly to the sheet does not require longtime and expensive preparation. It is the ideal solution when for  producing small runs of compact packaging boxes under tight deadlines.

ATTOLIS offers digital full color printing for branding cardboard boxes for honey jars, sweets, cosmetics, soaps and other products of suitable size. We produce such packaging in small and medium runs.

Pros:

  • Low cost for small runs. Several hundred boxes are much cheaper to print digitally than with offset method.
  • Short lead time. As there is no longtime preparatory work, using digital printing boxes are made very quickly.
  • Ability to change color, pattern, correct errors and make other adjustments during print run


Minuses:

  • Limits on the size of the package
  • The cost of each item does not reduce when printing large runs

 

Silk-screen

Silk-screen printing


Silk screen printing is a modern type of screen printing, which is performed using a special mesh. The thick paint under the pressure of the squeegee hits the surface through the holes of the mesh, on which the stencil of the future image is created. The print is dried with hot air and special lamps.

Today the technology is widely used in the printing industry. ATTOLIS company performs silk-screen printing on paper, cardboard, corrugated board, plastic and other materials.

Features


The screen-printing method is used for branding the packaging, applying prints, text, illustrations. This method allows you to obtain clear, high-quality printing keeping the original color of the image at the background of any color. So the brand logo printed on the cardboard packaging will remain in the corporate color, no matter what shade the background of the packaging is. Silk screen allows you to apply matte, glossy, complete or spot UV varnish.

You can create an image using one color or several different colors, you can make a metallized or fluorescent image. For each color, its own stencil grid is created, the cost of silk-screen printing depends on the number of printing colors.

 

Offset printing

Offset printing


Offset printing is a technology that involves applying an image to paper or cardboard by transferring it through special rollers. This method requires significant time and money, but the image quality is high.

Today this technology is widely used in printing houses. ATTOLIS offers qualitative offset printing on boxes and packaging. Our experts will impliment any ideas of the client, make an unusual design for an individual order.

We use offset printing to produce full color, durable corrugated boxes. Printing is not applied directly to corrugated cardboard, but to cardboard sheets. We use the laminating method on our special equipment - we glue cardboard with full-color offset printing to corrugated cardboard, cut it to shape, fold ready-made durable colorful boxes.

Features


Offset printing guarantees accurate color reproduction, contrasts and smooth color transitions.

Pros:

  • High image quality, use of CMYK colors and pantones
  • Wide possibilities in the choice of paper
  • Wide range of finishing options
  • Significant reduction in the cost of each unit when ordering a large circulation
  • Fast implementation of large runs


Minuses:

  • Time-consuming and complex prepress, which makes it unprofitable to order small print runs

 

Embossing

Embossing


Embossing is a creation of a sculptured image on a printed material by compressing it between cliches. Cliches for embossing are made according to the layout, in cliches the necessary shapes are cut out, they will leave an impress on paper or cardboard. The relief of the image can be eminent on the front side (embossing), or depressed (debossing).

ATTOLIS has all the necessary equipment for foil stamping and hot stamping, which allows us to implement different customer ideas in packaging decoration.

When processing foil stamping, a foil is laid and pressed between the metal plate and the material, a metallized imprint remains on the material.

For stamping we can use foil:

  • metallized;
  • matte;
  • holographic.

Dyed embossing, i.e. embossing on print, is often used for the production of branded packaging. Additionally, selective UV varnish can be used, then the print will be even more voluminous.

Features


For embossing, it is necessary to order the production of metal forms (cliches), their cost is calculated depending on the area of ​​the embossed elements.

For one relief print 2 cliches are needed, which will compress the material from the front and back sides.

The demand for this type of printing services is constantly growing in the field of business and advertising. Often in the manufacture of packaging and printing, printing is not used at all, all images and texts are applied by hot stamping and foil stamping.

 

In addition to relief stamping and foil stamping, we also perform Silk Foil stamping without clichés.

Silk Foil allows us to get an eminent image in the color of bronze, gold, silver, which is not depressed on the back.

UV Coating

UV Coating


UV coating technology gives printed products a gloss and matte finish without lamination. Matte or glossy varnish can be applied to the entire surface of the product or selectively to make certain elements more noticeable.

In case of packaging branding by application of spot UV coating, the logo is applied with a transparent ultraviolet material, which makes it possible to highlight the brand name, gives it an overflow effect, but does not make it too catchy.

To obtain a more colorful image, the logo can be printed by offset or digital printing with further UV varnish coating. An embossed, tactilely perceptible picture is provided by applying a "high" UV varnish.

UV varnish can highlight not only the logo, but also other elements: illustrations, lines, company name.

Adding glitter to the varnish allows to obtain a glitter material that will provide shine and attractiveness to the packaging design elements.

Features


Ultraviolet varnish has a high gloss, dries quickly, and is resistant to chemical and physical stress.

Also UV-varnish can be matte - Soft Touch coating gives velvetiness to surface of printed products. The application of a special varnish provides:

  • visual appeal of the product;
  • longer service life of the packaging;
  • protection of the box from dirt and moisture.

The use of UV varnish allows to create truly exclusive products.
