Here’s some more information about tube decoration options to help you in your decision making process:
Offset Printing #
A printing technique that allows high color. The inked image is transferred, or offset, from a plate to a rubber blanket. Then, the inked image is pressed to the printing surface. Options include simple design offset, gradual/dot offset printing, and large area offset.
Silkscreen Printing #
A mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. The ink of the printing pattern using the silkscreen process will be slightly raised. The maximum colors offered for silkscreen decoration is 6. It is not recommended to use colors that overlay closely to each other, as each color is printed in a separate “pass” or process, so for each color there will be slight variability in where it is printed.
Hot Stamping #
A lithographic printing method where pre-dried inks or foils are transferred to the component at high temperatures. Hot stamping is a luxe, high impact decoration technique and can be applied in glossy or matte.
The possibilities with labeling are always endless– choose from in-mold, full-wraps, spot labels, and expanded content labels. Using a label can sometimes provide more detail or artwork continuity for your brand.
Refers to the four ink colors– cyan, magenta, yellow and key (black)– and also refers to this printing process. CMYK can only be used for sheet printing for laminate tubes, but is able to show the most complicated and colorful of design patterns.
PMS Color Match #
Match your tube color following COMPAX’s color matching process. You are able to select any Pantone color, approve pre-production samples, and hit the market knowing the color will be consistent across every production tube.
Both closures and tube texture can be provided in matte and glossy finishes. You’re also able to add UV gloss for even more shine and additional barrier properties.
MOQs for COMPAX Tubes all typically start at 10,000 pieces. Depending on how complex the decoration technique is, the MOQ may be 30,000 pieces.
