Production of your media packaging

We can answer any questions you may have regarding print production. We would be happy to discuss your desired product and guide you through our comprehensive range of media packaging for vinyl records and optical discs. We will present our products to you, explore the available options, designs and alternatives, and clarify any issues such as technical feasibility or the availability of non-standard materials. Together, we can weigh up the options and find the solution that will best suit your product and make it into something really special. Alternatively, if you have already decided on a final concept for the packaging of your data medium, we can get straight on with creating a flawless print or packaging product that matches your precise specifications.

Complete Media packaging

We produce all the standard media packaging products that you will already be familiar with. This includes all kinds of sleeves, bags and accompanying printed material for vinyl records as well as all the paper and plastic packaging options for optical discs. And when we say ‘standard’, we mean: to the highest standard.

In addition, we offer a range of particularly fine and high-quality products. For these items, we use special paper types and specialist processing and finishing techniques. Our premium products give your valuable content the packaging it deserves and showcase it in a professional manner.

For truly exclusive presentation, we can design custom products to your exact specifications. This allows us to package both standard and non-standard content in a particularly artistic and attractive way. A bespoke design will make it easy for you to draw attention to your media product.

Print finishes

The look and feel of the product’s surface is the first sensory contact that a potential buyer has with your medium. It can then take only moments for the customer to decide if the product is interesting enough to examine any further.

Sometimes it is the smallest details that have the largest impact. That is why we use a range of special materials and employ several highly effective print finishing processes. In this way, we can create packaging that really catches the eye and, when used creatively, also aesthetically enhances the overall appearance of the product.

Our print finishing options

  • Spot colour
  • Organic lacquer
  • Hot foil stamping
  • Foil lamination
  • Blind embossing
  • Partial lacquer
  • Laser cut
  • Colour cut
  • Inside-out printing
  • Punching

The art of media packaging

We believe that art deserves artistic packaging. To achieve this, we would be happy to exchange ideas with your graphic designer and bring our materials knowledge and manufacturing expertise into play. This kind of dialogue often opens up new perspectives that allows us to present your products in an even more favourable light.

When it comes to designing unique or artistically ambitious projects, we can draw from a repertoire of print products and packaging that you do not see every day. We have a knack for making your artwork stand out from the crowd, and designing truly stylish products is one of our favourite activities.

We print your hard cover books

Books are very individual − and we will reflect that when bringing your book project to fruition. Together, we will define the kind of book you want to produce and ensure that the final product will be exactly as you had envisioned it. Once the concept has been decided on, we will organise any preparatory work that is still outstanding and manage all the processes that make up the printing of a book: from pre-press and sheetfed offset printing to the book stitching, cover production and final processing. For a special finish, we can create fabric and plastic covers and use attractive print finishes. Once the manufacturing process is complete, you will find yourself holding a high-quality printed work in your hands: the kind of book you yourself would buy.

Expert prepress department

To ensure that your finished print product turns out exactly as you had imagined it, careful preparations must be made for series production. As a rule, we use the print data you provide as a template for the print production. Our pre-press expert performs a general data check before production begins and makes the necessary adjustments if any specifications have not been met. If you wish, we can also make improvements to the content, such as reformatting, image editing or typesetting. For colour-critical or artistically exacting motifs, we will be happy to analyse the ISO colour proof you provide before printing begins.

Environmentally friendly quality

We manufacture your print products using a value-based production approach, which makes us something of an exception in industrial production. We can make this promise because our manufacturing partner uses the latest production technologies and operates one of the most advanced printing plants for media packaging.

The manufacturing technologies we use also ensure good karma for your products, as the entire production process is environmentally friendly and in accordance with the ISO 14001 environmental management and ISO 50001 energy management standards. We only use FSC-certified paper and cardboard for your products.

In addition, we can offer you the option of 100% climate-neutral production of all data carriers and media packaging in accordance with the ClimatePartner programme. If you opt for this, the corresponding ClimatePartner logo will then appear on your product.
