Spec Development - do you need help?
Many of our clients need assistance developing a spec that is ready for a manufacturing quote. There are many details that can be reviewed to make the product really spectacular. We can help you with:
- the product; determining what you need in your package (media, books, etc)
- the best type of packaging based on look, feel, retail presence, distribution, etc
- the best type of packaging for your budget
- full spec development by a packaging engineer including dimensions & materials, and calculation of product weight to be used in shipping portion of quote
- custom dies
- printing spec and special printing effects discussion
- multiple quotes if you want to compare manufacturing costs on different specs to determine your price point

We will want to first go over qty & budget to make sure it is a good fit, and then if so, we can invoice hourly. Consulting is done via email. Please see our Spec Development Page.


Once we have an estimate in place that works with your needs and budget, we'll send you an order form to get the project started.

For the order form, we'll need to know:
- Project Name
- Billing / Shipping Address
- Method of payment you prefer
Options include:
1) bank wire or online check, cash discount of 5% applies
or 2) card payment (mastercard, visa, amex), cash discount does not apply


Payment can be 100% (required for rush schedules) or a split 50% retainer and 50% remainder due when source material is ready. The 50/50 split is a good option if you anticipate a slight delay (a few weeks to a few months) between getting the templates and having the art ready to go, or if you plan to work on art prior to data (cd/dvd content, video, etc). We do ask that projects be completed within one year.

We'll supply the templates for art layout, and you'll need to upload print-ready artwork. Dropbox, hitail or google drive are great options for files.
Your ready to replicate formatted/mastered data also gets uploaded in the same way. For discs, the disc image includes all formatting and mastering and is the same file that you use to burn a check disc. Please do check all data and art before submitting to us for processing as charges will apply to process new source material.
