Create, explore, test, perfect

As a stand-alone service, or integrated with The Total Package, prototyping allows companies to create, explore and test their package designs… sometimes repeatedly as part of an iterative innovation process meant to perfect the design.


By first creating a mock-up that embodies the design vision, we experiment to achieve the ideal color, substrate and finish. We help identify possibilities, compare options, and even meet finished production needs for small runs.


From a quick sample for proof of concept, to a large tradeshow graphic for one-time use, our prototyping services include embossing, finishes and a wide variety of substrates.
