Sampling Service

The Smartcentre is your first port of call for our professional sampling service – producing samples, mock-ups and prototypes with our specialised machines from a highly experienced team.

A key aspect in any new product, is the ability to turn a great idea into something real. Our Smartcentre sampling service helps bring ideas to life and gives you, the customer, the ability to test your products with a professional prototype. Whether your ideas are hand sketched drawings or a need for something unique to be designed around an existing product, our sampling service can provide you with samples of innovative packaging solutions. This includes, food packaging, confectionery packaging, luxury packaging and POS ideas, so you can ensure the final print is to a professional standard.

With the ability to print four colour and white directly on to a wide range of rigid and flexible materials and objects, we can produce greetings cards, POS and packaging samples to the highest quality, on any coated or uncoated material. We can also offer sample packaging, or greeting cards, with almost any finish, including foiling, embossing and flitter as well as simulating spot varnish and overall varnish effects. In addition, we offer engraving and laser cutting – cutting intricate shapes following a CAD profile.

The sampling service allows you to physically see a finalised printed and finished product and is an excellent way to get an insight into how we work and what we can offer. By product prototyping; time, cost and resources can be saved. It creates the ability to be able to test the market with finished samples before going to production, providing you with the assurance and confidence to sell your final enhanced product.
