Origination

This is the process of preparing your design for print.

Flexographic Plates 

When printing flexographically we need to create a set of printing plates. There is a cost involved with this and it is chargeable with the first order. After printing we will store your plates, free of charge, for subsequent print runs - there is no additional charge  for reprints if the design is unchanged. The cost for the plates depends on the number of print colours, the number of sides printed and the size of the printing plates. We will confirm the cost when quoting for your bags.


Screens

When screenprinting we need to create a set of screens for your design, which is produced from a set of negatives  . Again there is a cost to this, and is chargeable with the first order. After printing the screens will be 'washed' off, but the negatives will be retained and stored for future use. Again the  cost for the negatives depends on the number of print colours, the number of sides printed and the size of the printing plates. We will confirm the cost when quoting for your bags. Subsequent reprints from the same design will incur a small charge to return the existing negatives to screens.
