Bag Packaging Graphic Design
Smurfit-Stone's Graphics Center is a full service, flexographic, pre-press facility, operating to provide graphics and printing support to our customers.

Attractive, full color graphics increase product identification, differentiation and marketability. Smurfit-Stone's Graphics Center maintains a staff of industrial designers with a thorough understanding of bag structure and printing process to develop graphics exactly suited to the specific package. Capabilities include design, process color separations, color corrections, color proofing and electronic film output.

These capabilities coupled with the years of experience in our graphics center and plant pressrooms provide a level of total expertise that can't be bought through commercial graphics suppliers.

Photopolymer Plates

Bag Packaging plants use photopolymer printing plates on a variety of stack and Central Impression (CI) flexographic presses. All of our plants have in-house polymer plate making equipment and obtain film from the Graphics Center or commercial sources. The majority of the plates used are made from liquid polymer resins, however, four plants run plates made from solid polymer sheets.

Process Printing

Flexographic process printing involves the reproduction of either full color photographic or art images utilizing four standard process colors.

Gravure printing is also used for bag packaging applications. Bag Packaging runs two, 8-color, 44" gravure presses. Both are equipped to run UV coatings. Gravure printing is characterized by it's exceptional quality, but the high cost of engraved cylinders makes long press runs necessary for customers to realistically amortize the costs over a large number of impressions.
