Why have 3D movies remained popular, despite higher ticket prices? The best of the bunch – like Avatar – take full advantage of the medium, engaging their audience with the film's world in a way that a 2D movie couldn't.
Packaging works in a similar way. Generally, it's easier to sell a project idea to your client when you can provide product samples they can see, feel, and handle.
Custom samples help you win more business. That's why Apex Die is committed to being your sample-making partner. Read on to discover more benefits of custom samples.
Custom Samples Can…
- Bring an idea to life – If your client's intrigued by a project idea but wants to see how it will look and feel before pulling the trigger, a custom sample will help win them over.
- Incorporate many finishing processes – At Apex Die, we can produce a custom sample that combines several finishing techniques, including die cutting, foil stamping/embossing, UV coating, and handwork processes such as folding/gluing.
- Test out a design – Creating a three-dimensional sample to test out your design is often a good idea. Maybe your client needs to verify the fit, placement and protection for a specific product within a folded carton or other packaging application. Or perhaps you're considering a project that will be produced using a material or finishing process that you or your client are unfamiliar with. Occasionally, a design will be exposed as flawed or incomplete only once a sample is produced! Apex Die can provide a custom sample that verifies your design's feasibility – before you commit valuable resources to producing it.
Custom Samples are Affordable
At Apex Die, we can quickly and accurately produce custom samples at a relatively low cost. We recently upgraded our die making and CAD capabilities to improve the quality and versatility of the sample-making services we offer you.
If custom-made samples are cost prohibitive for your project, let us know how you and your client plan to use them. We may be able to provide "stock-on-hand" samples that deliver what you need.
Requesting a custom-made sample is easy. Just provide Apex Die with your package's die line files (or a drawing), its physical dimensions, and the stock you'd like to use. We'll do the rest. We can deliver samples of most standard package designs within 48 hours.
