Unmatched Design Capabilities
Artwork Production & Pre-Media
We are dedicated to turning your visuals into accurate, printable artworks. We integrate artwork and reprographics, making your process faster, more accurate, simpler and more efficient.
Design Adaptation & Consultancy
We have the ability to take a brief from concept to artwork or simply add creative additions to an existing range. Our experienced print specialists know everything there is to know about packaging design and its relationship to printing processes. We will assess your design from both a cost and technical perspective, advising you about what works and what doesn’t, then recommend the design compatible with your specified print process and substrate.
Our high-quality packaging samples can be used to support your integrated communication mix or simply to make spectacular presentations.
Our state-of-the-art 3-D capabilities demonstrate our extensive experience in managing a variety of 3-D requirements across all major consumer and industrial product categories. We can produce photographic quality images at high resolution, and create Interactive PDFs that allow you to rotate product on your screen. We can even produce animated movies to give your product maximum impact.
Our empowered workforce and world-class manufacturing facilities combine to deliver high-quality flexographic and rotogravure tooling to many of North America’s leading consumer packaging and print customers. We have delivered many firsts to our North American customers, from the introduction of fully automated manufacturing techniques and direct laser engraving for rotogravure customers, to our fully digital flexo plate-making facilities.
Manage and maintain your brand at a global scale.
One Global Workflow Management Tool
Our graphics management sites share the same unique brand management workflow tool, designed specifically to maximize your ultimate goal: packaging consistency. ZEN, our highly automated, proprietary management information system provides artwork briefing, production and brand management workflow processes. Our proprietary workflow tool breaks through the confines of traditional systems, bringing a full complement of Sonoco and client artwork production roles and responsibilities into one shared and fully integrated platform.
Our fully integrated and individually tailored graphics management solutions support your brands all the way from concept design through delivery of tooling and management of printers.
Quality control is woven into all our working practices, processes and systems. Every single job undergoes quality control checks at specific stages of the production process, before it is allowed to continue to the next stage. Our artwork management and quality systems are integrated into ZEN.
Print & Color Management
Maintaining tight control of brand identity through consistent and accurate presentation of color, layout and graphics drives every aspect of our work. Our printer management service offers a cost-effective and time-saving solution to optimize print quality and consistency on a global platform.
Our print specialists work with more than 1,000 printers around the globe to ensure a smooth, trouble-free transition from artwork and reproduction to your finished, printed package. Our focused relationships with printers ensure the delivery of packages that fully meet your expectations and support your commitment to brand identity.
