Pre-production samples are samples of your packaging printed using production facilities. It's equivalent to going into a production run for 1 unit of packaging, which is why it's the most expensive sample type. However, Pre-production Samples are the ideal choice if you need to see the exact outcome of your packaging before starting on bulk order.
Since a Pre-production Sample uses production facilities, all of the following features can be included:
|Custom size||Custom material|
|Print (CMYK, Pantone, and/or white ink)||Finishes (e.g. matte, glossy)|
|Add-ons (e.g. foil stamping, embossing)|
Process & Timeline
Generally, Pre-production Samples take 7-10 days to complete and 7-10 days to ship.
For each Pre-production Sample, you will receive:
1 dieline* of the Pre-production Sample
1 Pre-production Sample delivered to your doorstep
*Note: dielines for inserts are only provided as part of our structural design service.
