The art of packaging is not complete until after it had been printed. Therefore, print inspection is important so as to meet client satisfaction. Clients have very high demands as to what is supposed to be placed in their packaging.
They expect full compliance with the packaging in their order. Quality control should be important to anyone in the print and packaging business. The smallest error and inconsistency can lead to serious consequences.
Mistakes that happen during the printing process do not happen all the time but print and packaging companies should understand that the risk already exists and quality is now dependent on the print inspection team to make sure that errors are zeroed out.
For example, a client from the pharmaceutical industry orders packaging. Someone from the printing house makes a mistake. All it takes is a single mistake and the design from the pharma code, the lack of a dot in the description or in the Braile, or the smallest mistake in the text can be rejected by the client’s quality assurance department and the entire batch will be returned by the client.
When mistakes are made, the company blames the printing house, the printing house blames the quality department. The case can take weeks before it can be resolved and it may cause termination of a contract and lose on the side of the print and packaging company.
Quality assurance and thorough print inspection is very critical and therefore must not be taken lightly as it can make or break a project.
