Our electronic pre-press design department is dedicated to ensuring that the technical aspects of your print job – from planning, processing and proofing to plate making – are done to exacting professional standards. Goldrich produces all offset printing plates in-house using modern computer-to-plate equipment. In addition to standard screen dot printing, we encourage and promote stochastic screening to deliver extraordinarily fine image detail and colour for the most brilliantly vibrant packaging. Goldrich prints using vegetable based, non-toxic, low VOC and direct contact eco-certified inks, giving our clients confidence that their products are 100% consumer safe.

We offer a full range of finishing options, from spot coating to foil stamping, to help you realize the most sophisticated packaging solutions. Our multi-colour offset lithographic presses are capable of a wide variety of size formats, with our latest acquisition offering intricate 10-colour printing that enables us to do multiple functions in one pass, producing a finished product off the end of the press.

Goldrich Has a Vision
Goldrich has a vision to be among the world’s most innovative corporations in reducing the environmental impact of our business, while being a valuable resource to our clients in their efforts to do the same.
Varnish and Coatings
Varnishes and coatings add an extra layer of protection to packaging. When used as a spot coating, they can add new dimensions of interest and elegance to your package design.
Textured coatings in clear or coloured lacquer add a tactile effect to packaging. They can be applied as a pattern or to highlight a particular graphic element.
A scented coating, such as banana and chocolate, can be added to enhance the sensory appeal of packaging, signage and displays. Spot matte varnish featured on Page 4. Textured varnish featured on Page 9. A final aqueous coating helps to avoid smudging of the ink, and is the best overprint for environmental impact, while a UV coating
keeps colours bright and adds a glossy protective finish. Image appeal is enhanced.
