Acuity for Packaging Prototypes

Produce realistic, high quality packaging samples on demand

The ability to produce packaging mock-ups that look just like the finished article can give you the power to win more work. With Fujifilm's short run packaging print machines, it is possible to emulate effects used in high-end packaging, such as spot varnishing, foiling and embossing, and print rigid or flexible packaging prototypes, including shelf-ready packaging, folding cartons, labels, pouches and luxury printed boxes. You could even create your own stunning presentation boards and pop-up advertising banners to gain greater attention.

Demonstrate before delivery

For print businesses, having the capacity to produce brilliant, high quality packaging samples in house means you can show customers what you’re capable of. Plus, having the flexibility to print impressive mock-ups on the fly with our short run packaging option means you can secure work faster and demonstrate options easily, and quick turnarounds will also keep your customers happy.

Create samples in your studio

For design studios, being able to print, touch and hold high-quality packaging samples created by an in-house packaging press, can make a huge difference in the creative process. Designers can explore options, see them as they would appear on the shelf, and hone creative ideas and finishes to best match and enhance a product. Discussing creative decisions is much easier when you have a true example to present.

Present elegant, high-end packaging prototypes

Relying on inferior samples to demonstrate finished print could risk business. If you remove the need for potential customers to use their imagination, you’ve removed a barrier to new business. With the right in-house flexographic print solution, you can create rigid and flexible packaging samples on-demand, including cartons, labels, pouches and luxury boxes. Imagine being able to hand more than just a rough mock-up to a customer.

Reproduce eye-catching effects

With the right machine, you can create packaging prototypes that replicate the finish you’d get on a final product. White ink can be used to print on coloured materials and clear ink for spot varnishing effects. Even foiling and metallic inks can be emulated, along with embossed or textured effects. By demonstrating these sophisticated finishes in the design of a packaging sample, you can create greater impact and sell-in power.

Cost-effective sampling

One of the greatest benefits of an in-house digital solution for packaging samples is how cost effective it is to create high-quality one-offs. It eliminates the time and cost of producing samples with offset or screen, yet you still get the desired quality and finish. It’s possible to create multiple versions easily, and setup is simple. A digital solution could be complementary to your other print processes, or you could utilise it to great benefit as a standalone inkjet printing machine.
