FINISHING & MOCK-UPS
2D & 3D mOCK-UPS
Dagwood are specialists in producing high quality 2D and 3D mock-ups. With nearly 50 years experience, we have a proven reputation for quality - producing hand-finished mock-ups for market research, brand development, design, internal discussion and prototype development.
Our skilled artwork studio and print team can help with complex folding and packaging make up and can produce mock-ups of all types.
All the facilities at Dagwood are in-house, so we can maintain tight control on timings, quality and confidentiality.
EMBOSS & DEBOSS
The subtle effects of embossing are often an important feature of packaging design and printing. At Dagwood, we have a finishing team that is highly skilled in the art of embossing and de-bossing.
Our machine room has an extensive range of specialist machinery, with highly skilled and experienced operators to ensure that every embossed proof that leaves Dagwood is of the highest standard. We use techniques that involve both male and female plates as well as standard plates to achieve results of the highest standard - and pride ourselves on a level of accuracy that is second to none.
The use of foils on packaging and labels is an important feature that is often the ultimate in decorative appeal.
We continually invest in the highest quality machinery for our skilled team at Dagwood, ensuring that we can apply foil effects onto the widest variety of substrates. Our ability to combine foils with embossed images allows us to produce some truly remarkable, tactile and visual packaging.
Our range of foils extends way beyond gold and silver, and includes an impressive range of pigmented, textured and holographic foils.
Die cutting can often be a central part of the process in developing packaging. At Dagwood, we have experience in preparing accurate dies and cutter formats that can generate large numbers of the same shape from a wide range of materials.
We can provide an in-house die cutting service as part of our overall service in the production of mock-ups or as a stand-alone service.
