    Litho Lead Times Got You Down?

    Are you spooked by the demands of the season to meet your deadlines...

    ...and your litho print manufacturer is telling you that you’ll be waiting 7-8 weeks for your packaging? The weeks leading up to the holiday season are the busiest time of year for many manufacturers who produce retail packaging and displays. As capacity dwindles and litho lead times swell in print manufacturing during the run-up to the holiday season, it’s easy to get distraught or feel too small to matter. The turning color of leaves and crispness in the fall air is also a signal that we are in that time of year when so many other retail companies need beautifully printed packaging to capture the ensuing holiday rush. The Big Wait is upon us.

    But you need to move at the speed of business in order to maximize reach to your customers, which means that you need product on the shelf ASAP. What’s the solution?

Our packaging solutions require no setup fees or tooling charges, and we can deliver with minimal lead time because Fantastapack is powered by our HP high-capacity digital press.
