COLOR CRAFT GRAPHIC ARTS Where Solutions Unfold
Color Craft is an all-inclusive folding carton company that’s been providing customers of every size with hands-on, individualized attention for over 75 years. Our long list of capabilities is the direct result of our listening to our customers – and continually finding new ways to exceed their expectations.
That’s how we learned that oﬀering everything under one roof not only ensures complete quality control throughout the production process, but saves time and money as well. So from structural design and sample-making, to pre-press and printing, to die cutting, finishing and beyond... we’re ready to be your single source solution for paperboard packaging and printing services. And we invite you to put us to the test.
Structural Design and Sample-Making Solid Thinking. Nowhere is our passion for solutions more evident than in our focus on structural design. By combining a designer’s sense of form with an engineer’s understanding of function, our award-winning structural designers approach each project by taking into account such diverse factors as retail shelf space, converting requirements, and even marketing objectives – to deliver packaging that commands attention. They’ll work with you at every stage of the process to arrive at a design that not only suits your application, but exceeds your expectations.
But designing a package is only half the story.
The next step is to turn that idea into a fully functional prototype sample – one you can hold in your hands long before the job even goes to press. And that’s where our expertise really shines – producing high-quality samples that you can use for photo shoots, trade shows and more, often in as little as a 24 hours.
Graphic Design and Die-Making Make it jump oﬀ the shelves. Our designers specialize in the kind of clean, sharp graphics that grab consumers’ attention. So whether you need a package, catalog, brochure or more, we’ll not only help maximize your visual impact, but also strengthen your appeal to your target customers. And since it’s all done in-house, we can do it all at a fraction of the cost you’ll find elsewhere. The same is true of our in-house Die-Making capability. We’ve made thousands of diﬀerent folding carton designs for packaging, point-of-purchase, countertop displays and more. And each one is custom built for its particular application and purpose. The latest in laser-cut technology means that virtually anything is possible – allowing us to execute even the most imaginative idea with optimum accuracy. And by streamlining the communication between engineering, fabrication and cutting, we not only ensure top quality, but also the most eﬃcient process.
We have the tools to make it happen: • Coherent Everlase M46 Laser • Sabermatic 42" Die Making Saw • Tsukatani Hamono Power Blade Bending System • Graphtec Cutting Pro 47 x 36 Flat Bed Cutting/Plotter • HP Designjet 500 Roll Feed Plotter 42"
Precision is key. Our passion for exceeding customer expectations extends to printing as well. Which is why at Color Craft, we continually invest in new equipment and new technologies to help maintain the highest standards. Our wide range of presses means that we can handle both large and short runs with equal eﬃciency. So whether your package design needs one color or eight, we have the expertise and the equipment to handle even the most challenging assignments. And even if you require multiple coatings, such as aqueous or UV, we’re equipped to deliver the quality you demand and deserve.
The right press for every job: • 6-Color 28 x 40 Komori Lithrone 40 Press with computer color console, infrared dryer system, color densitometer and sheet cleaner, with aqueous coater • Two 6-Color 28 x 40 Aurelia 640 Presses with computer color consoles, infrared dryer systems, color densitometers and sheet cleaners – one with an aqueous tower coater • 4-Color 28 x 40 Aurelia 440 “Elite” Press with computer color console, infrared dryer system, color densitometer and sheet cleaner
Converting The right way to finish. We know that our job doesn’t end with a beautifullyprinted sheet of paperboard – because there’s still work to do to transform it into an eye-catching piece of packaging. That’s why we oﬀer a wide range of finishing services; from standards like cutting, scoring, folding and gluing, to more premium options like foil stamping, embossing/debossing and more. But no matter how unique or innovative your final package needs are, our precision cutting and finishing equipment and staﬀ ensure that the job is done right – every time.
