SA Litho Label Printers, a division of CTP limited, has upheld a reputation as a total solutions provider, with an all-embracing product portfolio existing of wetgum labels, self-adhesive flexo labels and digital labels, shrink sleeves and, perhaps the lesser known addition, packaging sleeves.
“SA Litho has been a producer of packaging sleeves for almost a decade and services numerous markets; the FMCG and retail markets amongst others,” says Jon Williams, sales manager at SA Litho. “As supplier into these markets, we had identified an opportunity to not only satisfy our clients labeling needs, but their sleeves needs as well. This makes it more convenient for our clients to source all of their packaging from one central point, call it a one stop shop if you will’’, Jon concludes.
Packaging Sleeves are a noticeably popular packaging format, favoured by many clients for their dual marketing and functional properties. Sleeves are a creative yet practical packaging format that simultaneously promotes the product and maximises its shelf appeal, all the while serving as a platform to convey vital product information and functions as an additional barrier of protection for the product.
SA Litho print on a wide range of board substrates and use the very latest in print and finishing technology to bring their clients vision to life. Multi-colour print capabilities and finishing techniques like foiling, embossing and an assortment of varnishes are available to produce premium quality sleeves available in custom shapes and sizes dependent on each client’s specific requirements.
SA Litho’s latest investment in a new state of the art gluing machine has further advanced their competitive position. “The new investment has seen an improvement in our already fast turnaround time” says Jon Williams. “Clients can typically expect a lead time of ten working days” he concludes.
Given today’s challenging trading conditions, print quality and colour management remain focus points amongst brand owners and retailers. In order to further strengthen their position as a provider of packaging sleeves of only the highest quality, SA Litho implemented Mellow Colour, a colour management system in early 2017.
This system, which facilitates colour quality and consistency throughout the printing process, allows them to match global print quality standards. Impressively, SA Litho boasts a three month implementation period, the fastest by any print company in the world and was the first company in South Africa to be awarded Club 100 certification. This honour is bestowed on printers who achieve 100% score on a print job compared to the ISO standard.
Along with a highly specialised team and state-of-the-art equipment, SA Litho fingers their quality-focused and attention to detail business approach as the key to their continued success. The company adheres to the most stringent of industry standards, FSSC 22 000 and the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
