Structural Design

Each package we produce is designed to suit our customers’ unique needs. We work closely with our customers during the R&D phase to develop a package that fits their product perfectly for optimal protection, that functions flawlessly, and is also attractive. We produce sample cartons on our Computer-Aided Design table. Our customers generally supply us with their product and a few basic design specifications. Next, we create samples for them to test and approve. Once the carton is approved, we will email an electronic die line (structural outline) for the art designers to place their graphics.

Pre-Press

Our pre-press department is efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. They ensure our customers' artwork prints correctly. Our customers can provide graphics via FTP sites, WeTransfer, Sharefile, or email. The file size will determine the best method of file transfer.

Our team is happy to answer any questions upfront so that the process is smooth and efficient, which saves our customers money.

Our Prepress Department offers color proofs, three-dimensional mockups/prototypes, Webway internet-based project communication, facilitation, and computer to plate electronic workflow and processes.

Printing

Where ink goes on paper, and the shelf appeal takes shape. Our Printing Department has two 40” printing presses and one seven-color 57” press, which results in the ability to be flexible with our schedule when necessary.

This flexibility results in shorter turnaround times and the ability to meet our customers’ needs quickly and efficiently while maintaining a high-quality level. Our printing department offers five different types of coating, soy-based process inks, and U.V. inks and coatings. We also provide printing on the inside of the carton for a unique finish that will surprise and delight consumers.

We customarily print on paperboard that ranges from .012 to .030 in thickness. We also have a mini ink plant under our roof. Managed by INX international, they ensure that we do not run out of ink and can do special mixed Pantone colors and ink proofs called drawdowns.

Foil, Emboss, and Cello Window

Dress it up with these specialty options.

The Foil Stamp is incredibly shiny and will catch the attention of your customers' attention and support a high-end product feel. There are numerous colors and textures to choose from.

Embossing is an option that will bring dimension to your carton. A logo, image, or pattern is an excellent choice for embossing. It is also possible to emboss a foiled image for double the impact. Adding a cellophane window to a carton where visibility of the product is necessary is something we can also do. Customize your window shape and size, and we will take care of the rest.

Die Cutting

Your package must also be cut, scored, and perforated where necessary. The cutting department at Sonderen Packaging takes care of this step by utilizing our four cutting presses. The cutting department takes pride in ensuring the cartons form correctly, whether they are hand or machine loaded. We also create and maintain the cutting dies in our plant. Once you purchase a cutting die, you will never have to pay for another unless you change the structure of the package.

Finishing

Precise folding and gluing of the cartons are executed in the finishing department.

Finishing takes great care in making sure that the cartons are glued in the proper place and with the correct amount of glue to be strong and durable. The finishing department is also the final quality check before your product is packed into custom-sized corrugated cases and shipped to you.
