GCI offers a full-service art department utilizing the latest versions of all major graphics applications. As new art files are received, they are cross-referenced against previous versions to maintain appearance consistency throughout the product line.
GCI’s graphic specialists work with your art department in developing artwork optimized for flexographic and digital printing — saving you time and money. Our in-house art department offers a full array of design services.
Make sure to check your print labels design (and information) accuracy before sending them to GCI – corrections or modifications made after the proofing stage will incur extra charges, as we need to repeat the entire pre-press process to incorporate the new files.
