As part of our personalised service guarantee, you’ll get your very own internal production controller. This single and dedicated point-of-call not only makes your printing experience with us more interactive, convenient and comfortable, but ensures that your exact needs, specs and delivery requirements are communicated by your production controller directly to our production team and met with absolute precision.
We have designated ‘Colour Champions’ focused on developing a culture of continuous improvement through the measurement and analysis of colour. The Mellow Colour Management System vastly improves our colour consistency and reliability, while allowing us to match global print quality standards, including ISO 12647, making your products as vibrant and dynamic as possible.
With this 100% inspection system, all labels are checked for print flaws as well as data integrity through a bi-directional inspection process. This, compared to manual inspection systems, removes human error, reduces the risk of data contamination and also ensures that we comply fully with the high standards set by pharmaceutical and cosmetic label printing.
Even with the most specialised teams and the latest technology, it is the end result that
matters most and that means quality always comes first. We adhere to, and comply with the
most stringent industry standards.

The Ubuntu House is a place of safety for new-born babies who have been abandoned, orphaned, neglected or born as a result of an unplanned or crisis pregnancy. SA Litho label printers supports the Ubuntu House with monthly monetary donations that contribute towards the feeding and caring of the new-born babies. Our hearts go out to every baby that arrives at the Ubuntu House and we hope that our contribution will make a difference in the lives of these beautiful children.
The Peninsula School Feeding Association (PSFA) was established to address the problem of hunger in school children. PSFA provides meals to primary, secondary and special-needs school learners in the Western Cape. SA Litho proudly sponsors Ravensmead Secondary School with the Peninsula School Feeding Association, helping ensure that the learners are fed two wholesome meals a day. This year (2016) we have extended our sponsorship to include two more schools, namely; Kasselsvlei High School and Plantation Primary School. SA Litho is currently responsible for feeding approximately 500 children daily.
16 Days of Activism is a worldwide campaign to oppose violence against women and children. SA Litho wholly supports this campaign and has constantly partnered with Women against Rape (WAR) to raise awareness of – and to oppose – violence against women and children.
Volunteers from our all our Western Cape divisions (SA Litho Label Printers, CTP Cartons & Labels, CTP Flexibles, Boxes for Africa and Boland Printers), gather each year to prepare comfort packages, educational kits and sandwiches for our surrounding communities.
“14 million South Africans go hungry every day. FoodBank SA collects edible surplus food from manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers and redistributes this food to hundreds of verified NPO’s that collectively feed thousands of hungry people daily.” (FoodBank South Africa 2015)
SA Litho pledges a monetary value to the FoodBank SA to allow 10 SA Litho staff members to pack food parcels with them at their warehouse for our 67 minutes on Mandela Day, 18th of July each year.
SA Litho is a proud sponsor of the Veritas Awards which recognises wine of exceptional quality. The Veritas Awards dinner takes place in October of each year where all the Bronze, Silver, Gold and Double Gold medal winners are announced.

We are committed to developing the skills and knowledge of our employees and to this end we focus on programmes such as apprenticeships, learnerships, and bursaries for employees.
Our Graduate Programme provides opportunities for graduates to receive on-the-job work experience. Since 2011, thirty eight graduates have been appointed. 97% of these appointments have been for Black employees of which 68% have been Black females.
The graduates are appointed at various divisions in disciplines ranging from engineering, financial management to marketing. Each graduate is placed with a mentor who provides support, guidance and practical exposure to the workplace.
Our Bursary Programme has been running since 2011. Bursaries are awarded to employees who are earmarked for further development and focus on courses at NQF Level 6 or higher.
We have also been instrumental in the development of the Printing and Packaging Bridging Programme in conjunction with other partners. The aim of this programme is to address the scarcity of candidates applying for apprenticeships in the printing and packaging industry. This programme is recognised as an entry level qualification into any of the printing and packaging apprenticeships and related qualifications.
Our in-house training programme further enhances the quality of training received by our employees. Where industry related training material is unavailable, internal trainers develop content for our training programmes.
