Simplified Samples are printed samples of your packaging without any added finishes. They're the perfect type of sample if you're looking to visualize the outcome of your artwork directly on your packaging.
Here's what's included and excluded in a simplified sample:
|Custom size||Pantone or white ink|
|Custom material||Finishes (e.g. matte, glossy)|
|Custom print in CMYK||Add-ons (e.g. foil stamping, embossing)|
Note: Simplified Samples are made with sampling machines, so the print quality isn't as crisp/sharp compared with the outcome from actual print facilities used in production. In addition, these samples might be harder to fold and you may see some small creases/tears in the paper.
Process & Timeline
Generally, Simplified Samples take 4-7 days to complete and 7-10 days to ship.
For each structural sample, you will receive:
1 dieline* of the Simplified Sample
1 Simplified Sample delivered to your doorstep
*Note: dielines for inserts are only provided as part of our structural design service.
Structural samples are available for all packaging types.
