📦 Go to Lumi.com to find the best fit for custom packaging: http://www.lumi.com Dielines and proofs are essential steps in packaging prepress. Prepress is all the stuff that happens to prepare your digital designs for the physical world. On this episode, Jesse covers what Dielines and Proofs are, how they work, and some tips and tricks to prevent common prepress mishaps. DIELINES — The goal of dielines and proofs is to prepare designs for the exact capabilities and machinery of the machines in manufacturing. It starts with a dieline. A dieline is a digital layout of your packaging, laid out flat. It accounts for folds, cuts, bleed, and any 3D aspects that your design needs to account for. PROOFS — Next comes the proof. Typically, the proof is digital and it looks like your dieline except it may have notes or changes from your manufacturer to ensure your design is perfected for manufacturing. Your packaging proof is an agreement between you and your manufacturer on the precise expectations of your project so look it over thoroughly and if you have questions, ask ASAP because every day you wait to approve your proof is a day added to your production timeline. ✉️ SUBSCRIBE for weekly videos on packaging, shipping, supply chain challenges, and fulfillment — for your product and your soul. http://bit.ly/LumiNews 📣 SEND YOUR Qs: Have a question about #ShippingThings?

Lithographic Printing for Packaging
 
05:00
📦 Go to Lumi.com to find the best fit for custom packaging: http://www.lumi.com In the packaging world, there are four dominant printing methods — flexographic, rotogravure, digital, and lithographic. Lithographic printing is based on the premise that water and oil don't mix well together. Lithographic print plates are made with sheets of metal and the design is put onto the sheet of metal. The negative and positive parts of your image are all on the same plane, the only difference is that the positive parts of the design attract ink while the negative parts of the image attract water. So, only your inked design is transferred onto the final material. In packaging, lithographic printing is most used often for boxes. But here’s the thing — you can’t apply lithographic printing directly to corrugated sheets, so your design is printed on regular paper and laminated to sheets of corrugated. On this episode, we dive into how the process works, how does it look, how much will it cost you, and what is it really best for. 📧 SUBSCRIBE for weekly videos on packaging, shipping, supply chain challenges, and fulfillment — for your product and your soul. http://bit.ly/LumiNews 📣 SEND YOUR Qs: Have a question about #ShippingThings?

What is Lithographic Printing?
 
01:03
The most common type of lithographic printing is offset. This printing process is based on the fact that oil and water don't mix. In offset lithography, you have an oil-based ink roller and a cylinder covered in water. Your printing plate is moving through both and picking up the positive and negative parts of the image. The positive parts of the design will attract the ink while repelling the rest. Next, the inked, positive parts of the design are transferred to the blanket cylinder. That’s what makes the process offset. The blanket transfers the image on your print surface while the impression cylinder pushes your substrate onto the print plate giving your image its crisp, beautiful design. That is lithographic printing. 🏅 Become a supply chain pro and get definitions to the words that every entrepreneur and ops team member should know: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLrqM6Vg4p-UQImb6yDKB9L10BImZf8sXO
