ABOUT

CL&D Digital is a solutions and customer focused label and package printing company that provides smaller run projects seeking production-run quality. We provide production quality, innovative packaging solutions and are experts at producing market ready prototypes, samples, sales kits, comps, and other short-run packaging projects.

Beyond packaging, we offer handwork and fulfillment services such as application, forming, filling, and fulfillment. Think of us for samples, short runs,  prototypes, promotional products, sales kits and comps.

Our customers include many Fortune 500 consumer products manufacturers. Some of the most famous names on the planet count on CL&D Digital’s ability to provide quality packaging for their branded package and label samples. CL&D Digital’s complete packaging design services and project management capabilities can help build your brand from concept to completion and get your product on the shelf in record time.

 

The digital technology we use has changed the way many consumer goods manufacturers are bringing new products to market: fast and cost effectively. Providing fast and worry-free, one stop branded packaging and printing solutions is what CL&D Digital has done every day since we started in 1995.

There are no minimums and deliveries can be as quick as next day. We're not just package printers, we're packaging consultants providing the most experienced and reliable team in the industry.

FAST and ON TIME. We are one of the few digital package printing companies that can provide production quality prototypes. This means that the materials we use to create your sales samples and comps are very close, if not the same, to those that would be used on a full production project. It gets our customers the most realistic looking and feeling prototype on the market.  We can help you get your product on the shelf in record time.

Below are the products we can print and assemble here at CL&D Digital. Some of the most innovative and interesting projects we have done cannot be marketed out of respect for our clients and their newest products.  With that said, if you don't see your solution here, just ask because we may have the capabilities but not the ability to show off our work.  If you have a special challenge, we would love to take on your project.

PRODUCTS

Direct to press packaging means quick turns and short runs.  There are no color separations, plates or cylinders used with conventionally produced packaging.  CL&D Digital offers 6 color capabilities plus white.  We can match PMS and spot colors which means our customers receive production quality color.

Digital packaging meets your time, cost and flexibility demands.  Because set-up is minimal, it is ideal for short runs like samples, comps, test marketing and shelf sets.  You save money eliminating  inventory and storage. You can also customize and make last minute changes.

 

Our project management and internal account representatives are second to none. Our customer service team is attentive and goes above and beyond to meet the needs of our customers.

Not only will we print your sales sample, prototype, and comp packaging,  but we will also fill it with your product or a simulation filler. This is the best way to get an idea of what the final product will look like. This is also ideal for sales kits because we can package, fill and bundle multiple products into one package.

We'll store your cold products and ship everything out to different locations if need be. Think you might need something done that you don't see listed below? Ask us about it and we can help you with a solution.

Preferred file set-up guidelines for Ai files:

Fonts

  • Please supply OUTLINED files if possible.
  • If submitting a file with live type, then please supply all fonts necessary to print the file.

Placed Images

  • Please supply high resolution images (300 ppi or greater).
  • Images with spot channels are the best option if Pantone colors are used in an image.
  • Images in layered CMYK Photoshop format are preferred as they offer the most flexibility if color correction or a white plate involving the image is required.
  • RGB images will have to be converted to CMYK for printing, with the color of the converted file sometimes differing greatly from the original.
  • Please supply clipping paths with images if needed.

Color

  • For files utilizing PANTONE colors, we will use a PANTONE book as the target for the color output.
  • If files require color matches other than PANTONE colors as the targets, please supply targets or guidance for matching.
  • Ai files created with artwork in the file linked to swatches in the swatch palette that are set as "spot colors" or "global process colors" offer the most efficient editing when color matching is required.

White Plate

  • Any items that need to be backed in white (items that are not intended to be transparent) should be copied to a unique layer.
  • These items should be linked to a special "custom white" spot color, although the actual CMYK breakdown of the spot color reference used on the file is not important.
  • The white plate items should be set to overprint (fill and/or stroke as applicable).
