Technical feasibility and options testing

Designing your product with the right materials and processes in mind is critical to product function and manufacturability. We can recommend the optimal material or conduct testing of multiple options to find the absolute best choice. 

With our wide range of in-house printing and converting processes, we can suggest the appropriate technology and technique that not only meet your design requirements but provide a pathway to scale up to production volumes when the time comes.

Prototyping

Turning your product from a design file into a working prototype is an all-important step in the development process. However, it can also be time-consuming and lead to delays in your schedule, especially if multiple rounds of prototypes are needed. 

We understand the pressure to get your product to market as quickly as possible. Our prototyping service delivers high-quality conceptual or functional prototypes, including multiple versions in a single run. We’ve worked hard to optimize our process to accelerate yours.
