Shrink sleeves & tactile varnishes

Our twitter mascot discovered this on his journey around the web and I thought it was a fantastic example of what can be done with shrink sleeves (plus the photography is 100% better than what I can do here at MPH!). In the past we’ve experimented with our shrink sleeve mockups by printing undersurface as normal but then screen printing a tactile varnish on top.

As you can see with this picture, the moisture drops look effective as a print but imagine what effect can be achieved by having a raised tactile on top? Trust me, the results are impressive. Feel free to contact us if you need further specialist information on how to do it if you feel your design concept would benefit from it. We work with flexo printers that can produce this along with the specialist techniques required from the mass production side, not just how to make a great sales sample.

Who we are – MPH Limited

A quick blog entry to highlight what it is we do here at MPH Ltd. As a company we provide a specialist pre-press service to the printing industry, chiefly the flexible packaging flexographic printers. This includes reprographics, print plate making, specialist advice for designers and printers plus wet proofing.

With all this pre-press knowledge we also service various businesses with sales samples and printed mockups. Creative agencies and designers use us for their prototypes and packaging ideas. We love to develop long lasting relationships with these people, we bounce ideas about and like to be part of that creative process when necessary.

If you want to take a look at our main website visit MPH Limited for more information on our pre-press business. The site is rather old however and is undergoing development.
