Every item on this site is manufactured in Element factories by our full time professional employees. We do not resell items imported from China or any other country; we are a ﬁrst hand manufacturer.
We make it our mission to ﬁnd the best packaging and labeling solutions for our clients by combining our design and manufacturing expertise with your individual requirements. Below is a general production ﬂow chart.
DESIGNING is the first and most important step in the manufacturing process. You choose the shapes, colours, and designs; we will ensure your final product functions for its intended purpose. Element has a professional designing team to create eye catching, bespoke products to its customers.
PRINTING begins after your conﬁrmation of the ﬁnal proof of the desired product. Using our state-of-the-art machinery, we apply either oﬀset, ﬂexo or screen printing techniques. Oﬀset and ﬂexo printing methods are mostly used for paper products. Screen printing is mostly used for fabric products. Colour on a computer screen may look diﬀerent than colour on paper or fabric. To prevent colour disputes, we prefer to get a pantone code from our customers. If you don’t have a pantone code, a CMYK code would also be suitable.
SURFACE HANDLING includes Hot Foil Stamping, UV Varnishing, Embossing and Debossing. These are the most widely used ﬁnishing methods in the paper bag and box production process. None of these can be applied to a fabric bags or Kraft bags. While gold and silver are the most commonly used foils, there are many diﬀerent colours available. We also apply textures onto paper to get an extra fancy look for finished bags, boxes and tags.
LAMINATION enhances matt, glossy or metallic eﬀects and improves the anti-wear and weather resistance of the surface of paper products. Depending upon customer needs, we can laminate our luxury paper bags, non-woven bags and swing tags. Matt or glossy PP lamination are the most widely used lamination types. We also oﬀer soft-touch and metallic lamination to our customers for an extra fancy look on our paper bags and tags. Lamination can’t be aplied to twisted paper handled kraft bags.
DIE CUTTING is the combination of cutting and indentation using a unique template created for the die cutting machine which enables thousands of identical items to be mass produced with a unique print and an indentation method known as “folding marks.” Diﬀerent machinery is used for diﬀerent products. Precise cutting is so important for a quality finished product. Fine cutting is essential for strong and efficient gluing as the process moves forward.
GLUING or SEWING the paper or non-woven bags is the ﬁnal step in our production line. It is essential that the proper techniques are used in this step to ensure a pristine finished product. Because of our many years of experience, we know which glue and machinery to use on various paper and non-woven products to achieve perfect, eye-catching products. This step in the process includes setting handles, eyelets and reinforcements.
QUALITY CONTROL ensures your products are perfect. Quality is our primary objective. We test all items for dimensional stability and resistance to ensure reliable performance. From selecting the raw material to shipping, every item is checked by our QC team at several levels of production. The last and most detailed quality check is performed after gluing. After passing the QC our products are ready for packaging.
PACKAGING AND SHIPPING occurs after the ﬁnal quality check. Products are carefully packed by our shipping department. We use various sizes and types of cartons and packages to protect items from damage during shipping and to reduce shipping costs. We use pallets to ship large quantity orders so loading and unloading easy. Here are our most used pallet and carton sizes:
