Cutting corners with your board supplier and utilising low cost material can have a very damaging effect with the repercussions effecting the finished look of your packaging. Two cartons for the same drug printed at different times, standing side by side on a pharmacist shelf with varying shades of colour are not only damaging to the brand but also consumer confidence as counterfeit questions are then raised. It is also important that your carton board comes from a sustainable accredited source where the mill manages its forests and adheres to FSC or PEFC rules. Purchasing material from a non-ethical source could result in you contributing unwittingly to environmental problems.
To help service our customer and keep pace with the speed that we aim to offer, Reelvision Print have made further investment into CAD sampling and design. Offering bespoke, blank, mock-ups within a short time frame will improve the work flow and subsequently shorten the lead-time. Reelvision are arguably the fastest to market once PDF’s have been approved and it was important to the team to help improve time scales prior to PDF stage, right at the front end, and prior to receiving the artwork to ensure that we help get a project moving within 24 hours.
From carton concept through to delivered product, Reelvision Print has structured its business to be at the forefront of service standards with a ‘can do’ attitude to address even the most challenging of deadlines. This positive outlook does not come at the expense of cost as Reelvision Print does not believe that service equals inflated charges. Reelvision never charge ‘fast-track’ costs no matter how short the lead time.

As a carton printer based in Lancashire the power of the sun is not what automatically springs to mind. However, with one eye on the future and our long term commitment to the environment, coupled with the spiralling costs of energy, it was a relatively easy decision to invest in 176 solar panels to help improve our efficiency, reduce our carbon foot print and sell power back to the grid.
Birthday celebrations for our fabulous Quality Manager. See pics of our staff celebration. .
As a major supplier to the pharmaceutical and medical industry for printed folding cartons it is critical that the Reelvision quality control systems are challenged and checked to ensure full compliance to the ISO9001:2008 and PS9000:2011 is achieved.
Seven years ago when Reelvision was being established, the big dilemma was finding a building that would be secure in its own grounds and allow for the growth plan outlined in their ten year business plan. The unit in Haslingden Lancashire seemed perfect for their manufacturing process flow, it could accommodate the demands of PS9000, be secure in its own lock up grounds and with an acre of land there was room to expand the operation.
It’s easy to forget that our packaging started life as a tree, so a visit to the mill for customers and staff really helped cement our understanding.
