Assessing printed work
Here at Volkers, we do everything we can to relieve you of your workload, to reduce the risks as much as possible and to get the most from the finished result. To ensure the predictability and reliability of the colour quality, our printing specialists travel around Europe, visiting printers’ production locations. There, they take press samples to check whether the result matches the approved colour proof of the design. They can also gauge and adjust the technical specifications of printing presses, so that the lithographers can, in turn, be 100% certain that they are preparing the right printing plates.
C is for Connection
About us and our packaging
Volkers’ role in the graphic chain is to connect. We aim to operate as a partner right from the start of the design stage. We guide our clients, helping them to keep their grip on their brand identity, completion time and version management. Before production begins on the packaging, Volkers will make suggestions and contribute ideas for optimal alignment, coordinating all the players in the chain, and consequently reducing failure costs and optimising the time to market.
