Food packaging prototypes

Professional production quality flexible packaging prototypes

We can produce high quality food prototypes using a wide selection of techniques, often all within our in house studio workshop. Our digital press can print directly onto flexible materials to print onto clear film to create labels, pouches and bags, or foil to create crisp packets, butter wraps, and confectionary packaging.

premium print effects on our packaging prototypes

We can also create premium print effects including embossing, foiling, spot gloss and metallic inks – perfect for creating tin packaging prototypes and premium boxes, tubes and cartons. We take great care in colour matching and hand finishing every prototype to make sure your packaging looks and feels perfect.

Bottle and can prototypes

In addition to our food packaging, we can also design, prototype and produce custom moulded bottles, shrink sleeve packaging and reverse printed clear labels for bottles and cans. You can read more about our bottle and can prototypes here.

Food packaging production

Consistent production quality

Designs on flexible substrates can be tricky to get right, which is why we use trusted suppliers and oversee the production of each and every print and mould job. We can offer great production lead times with suppliers we work with repeatedly, so you can trust that repeat orders will be consistent.

Our trusted food packaging suppliers

We know that consistency and quality is key to producing a quality product, which is why we never outsource our packaging production to the far east - all our cans, bottles and boxes are made in the UK and EU, which means you can get a high quality product with much better lead times, and very competitive pricing.

Popular food packaging products

 

Flexible pouches

Flexible pouches are a great way of packaging liquid products and cereals to stand out on shelf, or gain an commercial advantage in environments where disposal space is at a premium.

 
 

Flow wrap packets

We can digitally print and produce printed film prototypes on a range of materials.

Whether you need a white, foil or clear film we can use a range of print techniques to create airtight heat sealed film prototypes. We typically use high quality thick film to give a quality feel and finish suitable for pack photography but can order in films to match your specification. We can print and create the vast majority of printed flow wrap packet protoypes in house.
