What's Included

Included in a Simplified Sample:

Key Points to be noted:

  • Simplified Samples, made using sampling machines, may not have the sharp print quality of our primary production. They might be more challenging to fold and show minor paper imperfections like creases or tears.
  • The appearance of Black tone printing can differ between print batches due to variations in equipment, paper, and applied finishes or coatings.
  • For precise color needs, opt for Pantone over CMYK, or provide us with a physical item (like an existing box) for color reference. For Pantone or specific color matches, request a Press Proof or Pre-production Sample.
