If the Timestrip® is not being integrated into the product itself, and is being used as a ‘label’, then it is very straightforward. We need to know:
- Duration of the Timestrip® (from 5 minutes to several years) and the temperature environment it will be calibrated for, such as room
temperature or refrigerator.
- Graphic concepts, layout and branding guides Adhesive requirements. (What will it be stuck to? Do you need adhesive? Will you use a carrying card? Do you want a key chain?)
- If the Timestrip® is being integrated into the product itself, the first step is for us to look at the actual product or CAD design. We are happy to supply a Non-Disclosure Agreement to maintain confidentiality. We will then propose a feasible design for the Timestrip®.
We have our own design facility so creating the surface graphics, working on design layouts and finalising artwork is all part of the service. We’ll need your logo artwork in a vector file format like .ai or .eps, (not a .jpg or bitmap) and any brand guidelines or draft layouts you can provide. If you need to match production inks to brand colours we can send you a swatch book to specify the closest colour match. You’ll be pleased to know we never go to full print and production without clients approving digital proofs first.
