Print data management

From the design template to the printed film – everything from a single source: When it comes to print data management, our SÜDPACK printing experts will look after you every step of the way. We will advise you in preparing your print motifs, in selecting the right printing process, will be at your side during print approval on machine and will archive your print data for reordering at a later point in time. You are fully involved in the decision-making at all times – ensuring that we are not the only ones completely satisfied with the results – you are as well.

Pre-press and repro

What process steps does this involve?

Our print data management will be at your side every step of the way through the printing process. In prepress and repro, we will work together to prepare your motifs for printing. After your approval, the packaging film will be printed on the basis of this print data. Afterwards, we will save your data for possible reprints. Maximum transparency for you is important to us here: Thanks to our Online-PDF-Approval-Management-System, you have a clear overview of every process step at all times and can call up print motifs again which have already been archived.

Print approval

Print approval on machine

We always make all the decisions associated with printing on your packaging jointly with you. In flexo and rotogravure printing processes, you approve your order at our premises after viewing sample printing. Our repro experts will be working closely with you and your media agents on this. Through preliminary and final consultations with our experts, you are fully involved in all steps in the process. This allows us to ensure that the results are right and you are pleased with them.

Archiving print data

Archiving print data

We will archive your print data for you over the long term. Your advantage: If you would like to print an order again without making any changes, we can reuse your data and reproduce your printed film. This saves time and money – and will lead to the same high-quality result as you enjoyed with the first print.

Print form production and assembly

Film printing is a matter for the experts. That is why we undertake manufacturing print forms (flexo print) and engraving the printing cylinders (rotogravure print) ourselves. For flexo print, depending on the motif, we create a flexible sleeve by photosetting and curing for every colour used. These are then installed with high precision on our flexo printer. With rotogravure, our specialists engrave up to twelve cylinders for your print: On copper-plated printing cylinders, a stylus is used to create cells of different depths. These then transfer the colour to the film during the printing process. The engraved and chrome-plated gravure cylinders are then installed in the print system.
