Earth-Friendly Packaging

ARTICO encourages the use of earth friendly products wherever possible. For Fra'Mani Handcrafted Foods new packaging for Whole Foods Market, we selected a paperboard that is 100% recycled with a minimum of 75% post consumer content and used soy inks. Best of all, ARTICO sourced a new mineral based coating for the inside of the box. Contact us to learn more.

Flexography

Flexographic printing is still the main method used for producing pressure sensitive labels. With over 20 years of experience, ARTICO has extensive knowledge regarding substrates, adhesives for all types of production and storage environments, as well as the technical limitations of this type of printing. We can provide guidance on the best printing method for achieving your design goals when printing labels.

Color Management

Printing the color to 100% satisfaction is one of ARTICO’s main goals. On every new product that we print, Jaye, our color specialist, makes sure the color is spot on. This first printing sets the color standard for matching subsequent production color. Here Jaye is reviewing color for the product catalog for Green Toys making sure the color of the images represent the true color of the toys.
