Artcraft Label of Burlington, Ontario, has established a high-quality prepress division for flexography with the installation of an Esko CDI 2530 flexo plate imager and Esko HD Flexo, which is driven by software like Esko DeskPack to prep files and Automation Engine to direct Esko Color Engine.

Founded in 1977, Artcraft Label is a high-end pressure-sensitive label manufacturer specializing in smaller volume premium brands in the wines, artisan cheese, and beauty care consumer goods markets, primarily with customers in the region.

The company, with 15 employees, operate three flexo presses and two small-format digital devices in a 20,000 square-foot facility. In 2008, Artcraft became the first label printer in Canada to produce water wash digital plates. In 2013, with the arrival of Alain Paquette as co-owner and President, Artcraft invested in new management information software and initiated Lean Six Sigma manufacturing practices.

PrintAction magazine’s upcoming May 2015 issue features a Q&A with Paquette discussing several of the new directions Artcraft has taken over the past three years.
