Our printing process is sheet fed offset; and each of our presses has eight printing stations with in-line cold foil and two coating units. We also offer off-line foil stamping and embossing for additional decoration options. In finishing, we can apply window film and/or RFID tagging as required. We then glue the cartons into the finished structure providing a variety of options. The substrate options include premium paperboard with post-consumer recycled content to meet your sustainability goals.
THE ARKAY DIFFERENCE
Using the most advanced technologies and working with a palette of decorative special effects, Arkay meets any visual challenge.
EMBOSSING: The raising or lowering (Debossing) of the printed surface. Arkay has the capability of single-level or multi-level Embossing to add dimensionality to the package. Use along or with other finishing techniques, we create a unique package for your product – one that grabs the customer and draws their attention to your product.
TEXTURED FINISHES: Sometimes we want more than a specific look for your packaging – you also want a specific feel. At Arkay we accomplish this using a wide range of textured finishes. Just another way we strive to make your vision come to life.
STAMPING: Applying a high-quality (often metallic) finish to an area of a carton. Stamping has been a specialty of Arkay for over sixty years. We have the capability to stamp on top of many different coatings. Using our experience and expertise, we can create a wide variety of effects including holographic or richly pigmented effects.
