Pre press design is a term used in the printing and publishing industries for the processes and procedures that occur between the creation of a print layout and the final printing. 

R. Howard provides a comprehensive in-house design and pre press design service. Our expert pre press design staff with their attention to detail ensure your artwork goes to print safely.

Like an interlocking 3-D puzzle, every crease, every flap must be micrometre perfect, or else you could end up with thousands of pounds wasted. While your expertise may lie in product development or marketing, one of our “trade secrets” is our expertise in packaging development. We take the headache and risk out of carton packaging development and printing.

To get things started, first consult with one of our Print Packaging Professionals regarding product dimensions, product presentation and budget objectives. We provide a “blank canvas” wireframe template in Adobe Illustrator format from the CAD file for your graphic department to design the product brand, marketing message and product presentaion onto. Meanwhile, we use the same CAD file, our packaging engineering department will develop several CAD CUT production ready prototype packages to choose from and create full-size assembled mockups of them.
