Have a look around our website, and if you’re still not sure then give us a call to discuss your needs.


Our CAD department running the latest software which enables us to work from a variety of formats.

If you don’t have a file, don’t worry. We can also work from a printed sheet, rough sketch, an existing sample of even just the dimensions.

Our sample tables also mean that we can offer a “short run” facility with a maximum sheet size of 2 Metres x 1.2 Metres.

Sometimes, the design is the hardest part of a project. You know what you want, and you have an idea of how it should work, but you’re not sure of the details and the technicalities of doing it.
This is where our CAD staff can help. They have experience of producing working samples for twist and lock, kiss cut stickers, dispensers, DVD & CD slip cases, POS displays, cartons, boxes, pillow packs,
floor vinyls, swing tickets, hangers, envelopes, folders, wallets, brochures, greetings cards, gaskets, photo frames, mobiles, templates……the list goes on.

Samples can be made in any of the following materials;

Foam board / Foamex / Correx / Display board / PvC / O-Flute / E-FLute / B-Flute / C-Flute / EB-Flute / BC-Flute / and many more substrates.
