ASSeMbLY

Schawk has the knowledge and expertise required to assemble mechanical art files that meet an increasingly sophisticated set of technical standards. As technology advances, it creates more opportunities for design execution and requires much more specialized technical skills that are far beyond the expertise of most designers.

to ensure the integrity of the design and that printer specifications are met, Schawk leverages a wide range of technologies, long-standing relationships with business partners and our deep organizational knowledge of imaging, color and printing processes.

this knowledge also improves time and cost efficiencies. When mechanical files are executed to the requisite standards, there’s no reworking before printing. No delays getting new products or campaigns to market. Multiply this across multiple brands, SKUs and campaigns, and the potential cost savings are huge.

DIgITAL fILeS

At Schawk it’s not just the precise, color-accurate, optimized digital files that we create for you, it’s the years of specification engineering and color science backing those files. It’s also our deep knowledge of color and printing requirements across substrates and mediums. And understanding the complex technical differences among file formats and the processes by which they are accurately created.

Whether it’s a packaging design that requires a combination of line/Pantone colors and four-color process, or RGB equivalents for an online catalog, or an ad running four-color process in a magazine, Schawk’s digital files are meticulously prepared to ensure that your brand looks consistent and compels action across brand touchpoints.

mAnAgement: OuR AdVAntAge.
The strength of Schawk’s services is that they reflect the principles of brand point
management. Brand point management is the integration of processes across
the lifecycle of a brand – from strategy and creative through execution and print
management – to drive agility, quality and consistency in the materials that win
consumers’ hearts.
Schawk premedia is a key part of this integration. Anthem Worldwide, Schawk’s strategic
design company, leverages Schawk’s premedia knowledge and expertise during the
design refinement stage to produce concepts that are printable so they retain their
power and integrity (and don’t require re-working) during the premedia phase. And our
processes are underpinned by industry-leading brand management technology, BLUE.
Through people, processes and technology, Schawk delivers. Talk to us.
BLUE is a robust software product with an industry-leading easy-to-use visual
interface developed by Schawk specifically to guide the product lifecycle
management process. We also support the implementation of BLUE with training
and education and related technology services.
