PACKAGING FINISHING & MOCK-UPS

We have a proven reputation for quality - producing hand-finished packaging mockups and prototypes for internal review, market research, photography or as trade samples.

 
 

EMBOSSING & DEBOSSING

The tactile and visual effects of embossing and debossing are a significant feature of packaging finishing.

We also offer micro embossing and debossing that allow a design to be cut to multiple levels or smooth blends like a printed vignette.

Our in-house team of skilled and experienced operators use traditional methods combined with specialist machinery.

We can ensure that every packaging proof that leaves us is embossed and debossed to the highest standard with a level of accuracy that is second to none. Find out more about our embossing and debossing.

DIE CUTTING, FOLDING and CREASING

We offer flatbed digital cutting and creasing for larger products, smaller runs or one off bespoke pieces.

For longer runs, we can offer traditional wood and metal die cutting.

HOT FOILING

Hot foil is sometimes known as foil blocking or hot foil stamping and utilises heat and pressure to add that all-important premium finishing touch.

Our decades of experience ensures that we can apply foil effects onto a wide variety of substrates.

Available in many colours, effects and finishes, Dagwood can provide a foil for any project. Find out more about our hot foiling

COLD FOILING

We can add metallic detailing to any design with cold foil, a simple and cost effective solution.

Once applied, cold foil can be overprinted in precise fit with offset litho inks to achieve maximum effect.

Unlike hot foil, cold foil can be solid or tonal to vary the effect. Find out more about our cold foiling

SHRINK SLEEVES

Shrink sleeves or shrink wraps provide a premium finish to your product that can differentiate your product from the crowd. 

Our specialists can produce fully sleeved mock ups on bottles, cans, aerosols, tins and containers.

We carry out pre-print distortion tests, check bar-codes and can produce faultless seams.

Shrink sleeves are applied by our experts in our professional shrink cabinet for consistent results with trickier shapes and higher volumes.
