Variety is the spice of life

in Print work

We work with a huge range of client types at Xcaliba – from start-ups to nationwide high street retailers & from dental groups to marketing agencies.  The range of work we produce for the clients is just as varied (see our Super Service page) but the more challenging does work tends to be for the design and creative agencies we work with – unfortunately (and understandably), for reasons of confidentiality, this is also the work we can not be too vocal about.  We take the need for confidentiality on agency work very seriously and regularly deliver direct to end-users on behalf of our agency client; using plain unbranded labeling and delivery notes whenever necessary.

To give you an idea of the range of print processes and materials we work with here is a selection of some of the work going through Xcaliba this week (names have been removed to protect the innocent):

HR Development Pack – branding metal boxes in white, printed silkscreen.  Producing cut foam inlays to hold a number of ring binders.  Producing the PVC ring binders, printed cover and spines 4 colour process litho and encapsulated onto the cover and spine.

Retail POS campaign for a white goods manufacturer – product stickers printed full colour digital plus white silkscreen, competition claim forms and posters printed full colour litho, twist-lock leaflet dispensers printed full colour litho, mounted to display board and die-cut to shape.  Kitting all of the items into 2324 store packs, across 4 promotions.

Promotional pieces for an alcoholic beverage campaign – printed drip-mats printed full colour litho onto beer-mat board and die-cut to shape, back of bar stickers printed full colour digital onto self-adhesive white vinyl and boxes for promotional glasses printed full colour litho onto boxboard, die-cut, glued and assembled with crash-lock bottom.

And this week’s winner of the most unusual job goes to…

Hats for Ascot (!) – printing full colour using die-sublimation onto white fabric sheets and supplying to a London milliner for the printed sheets to be made up into whacky hats for Ascot Ladies day.

As you can see – there’s never a dull moment at Xcaliba
