Tams packaging cardboard box printing and manufacturing process

The complete box packaging service

We provide a complete in-house service from our offices and factory in Cuffley, Hertfordshire. From original CAD design through print and production you can rest assured that the Tams Team will look after you every step of the way.

CAD design,  sampling and artwork

Our team of hugely experienced designers will work with you to understand you needs and suggest creative solutions to your packaging project. We have our own in-house CAD so we can produce samples so that you can see for real what your packaging will feel like. We can also produce digitally printed samples which are often used in advance of a full production run for sales and marketing.

If you need assistance, we can help you with artwork to adjust existing designs or to create new concepts, working with the full suite of Adobe Creative Cloud.
