Moving Press Checks from Our Facility to Your Home

Thanks to the unprecedented times we're living in, businesses are doing more and more things virtually than ever before. The printing industry is no exception.

Press checks are a part of life for all of us, but even that tried-and-true quality control process has gone virtual.

Virtual Press Checks Start Well Before the Actual Press Check

Succeeding in the virtual space means being prepared for anything. From simple package design to complex layouts, it's important to establish a strong preapproval process and quality assurance testing well before a virtual press check. This can include assembling an experienced team for a series of internal meetings and "pre-game" consultations with clients to set clear expectations and timelines. It also makes certain that everyone is on the same page throughout the entire life cycle of your project.

Virtual Press Checks can Save Everyone Time and Expenses

Communication is vital throughout the entire process. Whether it's exchanging photos of the press sheets or establishing an approval protocol, keeping everyone informed is the key to a successful printing job.

Virtual press checks are likely here to stay, which can be great for your business. They take less time to complete than an on-site press check, and you can save on your overall costs.

Neff is here for you through every virtual step to exceed your expectations.

Packaging Innovations That Builds Brands Michter's Commemorative Packaging

Neff was selected to develop and manufacture new folding cartons to commemorate Michter's Fort Nelson Distillery. This important brand dates to 1753 and claims to be America's first whiskey company.

Challenge
The original art specifications were problematic: metalized polyester with solid bleach sulphate that required: two white inks, CMYK, a match yellow to create copper, one background color, two coatings. These specifications would produce an expensive package that would not be environmentally friendly. The Neff design team went to work to develop a sophisticated package that was both recyclable and cost effective.

Solution
To create a more sustainable solution, we tested cold foil as a replacement for the polyester. Cold foil is applied during the printing process and is adhered to the paperboard with glue. When recycled, the foil separates from paperboard during the deinking process, is burned for fuel, and does not go into the waste stream. Cold foil can be applied to just the areas needed for foil blocking.

Our solution saved Michter's money while reducing its impact on the environment. Using cold foil allowed the elimination of two colors from the artwork, which also eliminated the cost of two inks and two plates. In addition to the costs savings, it also reduced time during prepress.

When your product needs a technically precise package to present your brand that is cost effective and environmentally friendly – accept nothing less.

Neff Packaging Solutions recently installed a Scodix Ultra Pro digital press with a Scodix Foil Station™ to create specialty boxes with high-end luxury finishes. To experience the premium effects of this press, visit neffpackaging.com to request a sample (USA only).

In conventional processes, embossing requires a 2-step die and a separate die cutting pass. Our new Scodix press produces the desired effects without time consuming and expensive tooling and dies for short runs.

This digital process allows Neff to add high gloss, foil, and selective spot varnish enhancements in-house in a single pass. Consumer packaged goods industries including cosmetics, perfume, spirits, confections, and health care will benefit greatly from this capability.

Enhanced Effects for CPG Packaging:

  • Digital UV Effects
  • Digital Foil Stamping
  • Digital Spot Varnish
  • Digital Braille
