Discovery

A simple introduction goes a long way. Oliver strives for excellence when it comes to design and pre-press—and it starts with conversations. We communicate with you to understand your goals, pain points, and ideas to find the best solutions for your packaging and printing needs.

Design

Your packaging and marketing collateral plays many roles. It elevates your brand, inspires all involved with your organization, functions well, and delivers peace of mind to you and your customers. That takes a team effort. You can rely on us for a variety of design options–including inks, paperboard, coatings, and more—and accurate estimates.

You’ll receive custom designs that:

  • Function on all levels to protect, promote, inform, and sell
  • Are made from top-of-the-line resources that are both cost-effective and eco-friendly
  • Feature structures that are innovative and serve their purpose, while standing out visually

Proofing

We utilize a fully-digital workflow that provides you with a secure platform to upload your files and archive complex projects for consistent results. We can provide digital soft proofs, including 3D visualizations, to download or view online or hard proofs that allow you to touch and see your design in the adjacent formats.

For your approval:

  • Standard Epson proofs
  • Epson SureColor S80600 proofs with nine colors + white and silver that can output on specialty stocks
  • Mock-ups to give you the feel of the packaging
  • Digitally printed samples to finalize the details
