Some examples of our expertise include:
  • Custom-shape designs

We create prototypes for every packaging product at Moquin Press before we print, score, die cut, fold and glue. This helps ensure that your product is accurate to your specifications. Have our structural design team create an initial prototype of your design and supply you with the die lines to lay your artwork!

  • Prototyping allows you to see, touch, feel and build your concept. 
  • Analyze the dimensions
  • Shape the consumer experience by putting it together
  • Test the manufacturing filling process
  • Drop-test for package security
  • Modify and perfect your design

Equipped with the latest technology, our award-winning team makes sure your artwork is set up correctly to print and transform into a physical product. Printing is extremely complex, especially when converting multi-layered finishes and intricate designs. Our prepress team has decades of awarded print and packaging experience!

Moquin Press offers state-of-the-art technology. We realize you spend a lot of time and money on your design and artwork. It’s our responsibility to ensure that your graphics will be produced with the highest standard of quality.

Brilliant. Vibrant. True Color.

Moquin Press has an in-house ink lab, which partners with Ink Systems Inc®.  Our UV ink allows us to bring brilliant imagery and packaging to life. We can create on-the-spot drawdowns matching specific color or previous print samples, utilizing Delta E values to ensure accuracy.

Whether it’s a unique spot color or textured coating, we provide the widest range of inks and coatings for any print or packaging application. Some examples of our unique offerings:

  • White Ink
  • Metallic Ink
  • PMS
  • Soft Touch Coating
  • Gloss UV | Spot UV
  • Gloss, Matte and Dull Varnish 
  • Water-Based Gloss, Matte and Dull Coatings

Environmental Benefits of our UV inks include reduced use of solvents and pollutants as well as reduced energy and fossil fuel consumption. Lower greenhouse gas emissions and easier recovery and recycling of printing

Steel rule dies are durable and dependable. Designed using a custom steel rule and a die base, our steel rule dies are created for long-lasting durability. 

Using your artwork file, we cut a high-density birch board on our routing table, bend and lay the cutting-edge rule and finish with an ejection rubber overlay. After the steel rule die cut process, we will retain your die in our warehouse for future production, saving you time and money.

The die making process is a true form of art, and typically outsourced by companies today. Our team takes great pride in creating our own custom dies and we encourage you to come and witness the process!
