The design process

  • Gascogne Sacs handles graphic design requests for sacks intended for use in various markets: building materials, agri-food, chemicals, pet food, mineral products, seeds and more.

  • An initial feasibility study is carried out, after which a technical assessment is conducted. After a technical study, a CAD mock-up is drawn up followed by print tests, when a layout plan can be presented.

  • The specifications document is then put together, and the order can be completed by the Gascogne Sacs workshops.

  • The internal design process concludes with the creation of a digital file than can be scanned in accordance with the final layout specifications.
    Based on the printing approval, the technical dossier is finalised and the printing plates are prepared.

  • Printing can begin: flexographic printing, online printing solutions, water-based inks.
