Our colour management systems ensure consistent colour matches across every Reflex site as well as reducing complexity and cost with fixed colour palettes from Kodak Spotless and Pantone Live. Reflex delivers consistent colour to a Delta E reading of <2.

The studio teams are specialists in artwork for all packaging formats and every print process. The open lines of communication between designers, printers and technologists allow for the very best accuracy and expedience.

Our customers are offered open access to these specialists, thereby providing a streamlined avenue. So, whether ordering your labels or changing your pack design, it all happens with just one point of contact.

At Reflex we invest in the very latest equipment, always keeping ourselves in front of the market. We are the only packaging supplier in Europe with both Kodak NX and Esko HD platemaking technologies.
