For us, printing is a craft, but design is an art. That is why as a company we pay great attention to creating creative solutions for our customers. Printing House Sofija has its own team of professional graphic designers with many years of experience in this field. We prepare quality graphic solutions for all products that are part of our portfolio as a printing house. That way our customers get everything in one place, from idea to finished product.
Exactly the appearance of your packaging is what first comes in contact with customers, what attracts or repels their attention. The design conveys a lot of information to your customers, sends a message, shares information. That is why we pay great attention to this part of the process of creating packaging, advertising material, or other types of products and help our customers to be unique and recognizable.
Sofija Printing House offers a print proof service which is actually a preliminary version of the finished product. This gives an idea of what the final product will look like and all the details are specified before the serial printing process begins. Our clients have the opportunity to directly participate in the print proof process and thus get the expected result together.
A print proof provides a close-up view of how the product will appear when it is printed. Print proof is required to ensure that the client and the printer are in full compliance with the desired result before going to print.
The print proof is vital because it helps prevent unforeseen problems with text, images, colors and other design elements. Finding and correcting layout questions i.e. colors, design, and other problems that may arise before you start printing not only save valuable time, but also help to avoid disagreements about the final print and printing costs.

MAKING A SAMPLE BOX
Sofija Printing House offers production of a sample box in the development phase of a new product, as well as in expanding the range of existing products. This is a particularly important segment of the packaging production process, as it allows the customer to see and test the type of paper, the actual size of the box and how its product will fit into the packaging. Also, in this way, the durability of the material is checked, with the possibility to choose the most appropriate one by testing several different materials.
We have an experienced and professional team that will design the perfect packaging for your products. The construction of the packaging is done according to ECMA standards and using the most modern programs intended for this type of work.
Offset printing is one of the three basic modern printing techniques. This is a classic method, effective for printing on different types of paper.

Our printing house has the possibility of varnishing with UV Varnish, Water Scattering Varnish, Offset Varnish, as well as selective varnishing with UV Varnish.

Metallized carton is a special type of carton coated with metallized foil. This material is widely used today for various types of packaging boxes. The popularity of this technique is growing day by day. Such material is most often used as premium packaging for pharmacy, cosmetics, alcohol, boxes for the food industry, greeting cards and etc. Printing on metallic cardboard requires UV paints and UV varnish.
Metallized carton is also used in the food and confectionery industry as an interior part of the box. The foil used for lamination is certified for direct contact with food and is a good and safe barrier between the cardboard and the product. The boxes that are used for food packaging, where the product is directly on the foil, we have a certificate for direct contact with food and the client receives it.
Global research shows that metalized packaging attracts much more attention and gives a greater impression of quality compared to traditional packaging.
A corrugated cardboard is made of one or more layers glued together between two flat / smooth cardboard sheets on the top and bottom.
The corrugated cardboard is usually made of Flutting, Testliner, Kraft paper, etc. The corrugated cardboard we produce has the features of E-Flute, which is usually suitable for making boxes, but not for transport boxes.
SOFIJA Printing House is the only manufacturer in the region that uses 100% cellulose paper for corrugated cardboard production. The material is procured directly from Finland from the renowned manufacturer MetsaBoard.
The corrugated cardboard is made of 100% cellulose paper and is most often used for making boxes in which food is packed, ie. where the product is in direct contact with the box. This material is made of 100% cellulose and has a certificate for direct contact with food and it is most often used to make boxes for: pizzas, burgers, food delivery boxes, cake packing boxes, etc.
