“Flexo Friendly” Art Design for Subscription and E-commerce Boxes

Awesome Check Box Ticked Red

We have the pleasure of working with a wide variety of graphic artists with amazing talent. However, many of them are used to working on the internet creating digital graphics for web sites and web pages. Even the ones who have worked in packaging typically create designs that are offset or digitally printed on fine paper, labels, or paperboard such as cartons or display cards.

Printing directly on corrugated board, on a flexographic press is different because it uses polymer print plates that pick up the water based ink and deposit it on the board, much like a rubber stamp and ink pad work together.

Four Things You Probably Did Not Know About Custom Printed Corrugated Mailer Boxes

Context Media 11x12x2 mailer box

We freely share the information we have gathered along the way and here are a few things that usually get a quick “I didn’t know that” from our customers and friends.

In most designs that you see out there, the box length is from the front (left corner to the front right corner) and it happens to be the longest dimension of the three (L x W x H) . Mailers are made that way primarily for ease of opening and removal of the product being shipped.

However, in some applications like the one shown in the photo, the product will … Read More
