Printing technology & artwork guidance
What is digital printing?
Digital printing is a method of printing a digital based image onto a printing substrate. In the packaging and labelling industry, several types of digital printing are used: dry or liquid toner, digital offset, inkjet printing.
In our case, we use inkjet technology, which is a contactless printing method consisting in jetting droplets of process inks onto the substrate to print the file image.
What does CMYK mean?
CMYK is also referred to as 'Full color printing' or 'Four color printing' and is the most common used digital printing technique. The system uses 4 primary colors as its base – Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and blacK – with various combinations of these 4 it is possible to produce virtually every color you can imagine.
What are the advantages of digital printing?
Digital printing enables to print complex artworks; high resolution vectors, images, with virtually no limitations in terms of number of colors. It can print short runs effectively and with a faster turnaround time: as long as substrate does not change, multiple artworks can be printed without stopping the line. As it is a computer generated printing, variable data can be printed by linking data base file to master digital artwork. Unlike plate based printing processed which are subject to color-to-color registration, ink flow regularity, plate mounting quality, plate wearing, inkjet printing grants consistency of shades across the same run.
How it is digital printing done at Neopac?
We decorate our tubes with inkjet and direct-to-shape technology. The ink is placed directly on the round container of the tube.
What is the color range with digital printing inks?
We are using 7 colors CMYK and OGV to match all colors within the extended gamut range. With this setup, we are able to print all the standard digital artworks and match more than 85% of the pantone spot colors (with a ΔE<2.0).
How do you ensure color matching?
During the uploading of your artwork, an automated check is performed to see if the file meets our requirements. After the check is over, you will be able to access the preflight report. We strongly recommend to read though the document carefully and adapt the necessary changes.
We are using the latest color matching software to ensure consistent quality within one print job but also from the first to a next order.
In what format should I submit my artwork?
For the best quality, please upload your artwork in PDF/X4 file format. To ensure there is no issues at the printing stage, please read our graphic guide and use our design templates, that you find among each product.
During the ordering process, you will be asked to upload your artwork in PDF format. This file is checked automatically and a preflight report is available to see if the document matches our requirements.
Where can I download a design guideline?
You can access the graphics manual at each product page. Or you can click here to access our graphic guide with tips and tricks to create your tube artwork.

We can provide tube orders from 2’000 to 25’000 units.
What are your lead times?

What types of card can I pay with?
What could be the reason for unsuccessful payment?
Usually this happens when the payment order is not accepted by the card-issuing bank, or it might be due to a telecommunication or IT fault that prevents the authorization request from reaching the card issuer when using a bank card.
- The card is not suitable for internet payments.
- Use of the card over the internet is blocked by the account-keeping bank.
- Use of the card is blocked.
- Incorrect card data (card number, expiry date, security code on the signature strip) has been given.
- The card has expired.
- There are insufficient funds to execute the transaction.
- The amount of the transaction exceeds the card spending limit.
- The connection was probably lost in the course of the transaction. Please try again.
- The transaction timed out. Please try again.
- If you are not returned from the payment site to the website of the merchant/service provider, the transaction was unsuccessful.
- If you have left the payment site, but return to the payment site using the browser’s “back”, “reload” or “refresh” function, the system will automatically refuse the transaction for security reasons.
What should I do if the payment procedure is unsuccessful?
A transaction ID is generated for every transaction, and we recommend that you make a note of this. If in the course of the payment attempt the transaction is refused by the bank, please get in touch with your account-keeping bank.
Why do I have to get in touch with my account-keeping bank if the payment was unsuccessful?
In the course of the card check, the account-keeping (card-issuing) bank notifies the (accepting) bank of the merchant collecting the amount whether the transaction may be executed. The accepting bank cannot give out confidential information; only the bank that identifies the card holder is entitled to do so.
