Our full in-house service enables design, print and multimedia packaging solutions, to cover all of your bespoke print and packaging needs.
Direct Source can offer the following in-house print services:
Best for colour printing from 100 pieces up to 10,000 and beyond.
If the artwork is full colour (CMYK), we generally use litho print machines.
The artwork is split into the component CMYK colours onto an optional white base - this can differ depending on customer requirements. A lacquer can be printed on top of the print to provide a gloss finish (optional and free).
Perfect for colour matching large areas of solid colour, metallics and fluorescents.
We recommend this printing method for solid colours and pantone matching spot colours.
If the artwork consists of just a few colours then screen printing is the route to take.
We use Dubuit screen printers, each with a capacity of 18,000 per day. We can print 12cm and 8cm discs.
- Allows matches to pantone colours
- Excellent for logo solid area colour
- Allows for special finishes (metallic, fluorescent)
- Up to 5 spot colours can be registered (with or without white base)
Digital Inkjet Print:
We use an industrial 2Print printer that gives a cost effective solution, on any media surface, to short run requirements.
With fast turnaround times, this method is ideal for budget projects which are cost based and do not require the highest print quality.
Excellent quality, perfect for quality short runs (up to 100 pieces). This uses either a white or silver base and gives a very high quality finish similar to litho.
We use a thermal Prism machine for single colour black text printing and serialisation, and a thermal re-transfer Everest machine for full colour prints.
After the production of your media, we can pack and distribute your order according to your requirements as well as offering bespoke packaging solutions.
