Design, prepress and cliche production

Polyprint > Services > Design, prepress and cliche production



Design is the process, during which we create visual concepts of envelopes. This is the first step to a good package.

To develop your project you can use the help of our specialist or services of an advertising agency. In both cases it is very important to reach conformity between the design of the packages and the specifics of flexo printing. 



Prepress is the process, during which we adapt our design to a specific printing process.

Prepress is an intermediate process between design and making cliches. Before making the printing form (cliche), we provide a number of operations that require excellent knowledge of technology and the specifications of the printing machine, as well as excellent knowledge of the software, which is used, and knowledge of polygraph printing.

Irrespective of whether your design is made by us or an advertising agency, it is mandatory for us to carry out finishing touches before making cliches.

Making cliches


Cliche is the printing form, which carries out the printing process.

POLYPRINT Ltd. collaborates with the best producers of cliches. After finishing the prepress process, the project is given to a company, which produces the cliches. The cliche is flexible, made from photopolymer and we use it to print our customers’ product. For every single color we use a separate cliche.

In order to calculate the price for one cliche, we need to know the specific sizes of the package and the number of modules, which will be placed on the printing form. To get an offer for cliches please contact our specialist by tel.:+359 887 090 667 or e-mail: and notice stict sizes of your package.

Making cliches can be analog or digital (CtP).



POLYPRINT LTD accepts different formats of files (ai, eps, cdr, pdf), which have been made by using applications such as Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw. To print a project correctly, it is of great importance that your files are correct. In the table you can find certain compulsory requirements.
