What We Offer
All Under One Roof
Atlantic Printing and Graphics offers printing on up to ten colors on our flexo presses with both water based and UV ink options. Using a variety of papers, films, and foils, in tandem with our multi web presses, we supply our customers with a broad range of options for pressure sensitive labels and coupons. We also offer digital printing utilizing extended gamut CMYKOVG technology to open up the Pantone color pallet.
The combination of both digital and flexo allows you the versatility to target markets at your brand launch and revise graphics as needed based on results. You can then move into the larger volume print runs knowing you do not have to make an initial commitment that cannot be changed. We can also work with your purchasing team to manage your label inventory and provide Just-in-Time (JIT) printing.
In addition to providing the labels you need for your retail packaging, Atlantic can also provide labeling equipment to incorporate into your packaging line. Our sales and technical service team audit your operation in order to set you up with the best possible label applicator for your needs. Our labeling technician, Don Stewart (you can read more about Don on our Experts page), will install, integrate, and maintain your equipment to ensure the best long-term performance and to incorporate any upgrades needed to keep up with your production.
“We can help our customer take their product from the time of manufacturing all the way to the retail shelf. We can support them through their whole life cycle, from inception and initial product launch to applying labels and shipping them out to retail stores. We are trusted by some of the most established household brand names.”

Atlantic Printing & Graphics’ offset carton operation includes 3 Heidelberg presses with up to 6 color printing plus a dedicated aqueous coating unit. Our finishing equipment includes multiple die cutters and folder/gluers that can handle board calipers ranging from 4pt to 36pt. Our in-house graphic and structural design team can help your vision for packaging come to life.
Our knowledgeable packaging team has over 40 years experience in the folding carton industry.
Atlantic Printing & Graphics can take your package idea from inception to completion. Starting with your product samples, we can create a carton that will both protect and display the product. Our graphic designers can then take the structure die line and add eye-catching graphics that will make your product stand out on the shelf. We can make 3D mock-ups of the cartons with graphics so you know exactly how your product is going to look on the shelf before running the full production order.
Shrink sleeves are an ever-popular form of retail packaging. With designers pushing the limits on package shape, shrink sleeves provide a solution to custom container decoration. Add the offering of 360 degree billboard graphics, and you have a dynamic presentation. They also offer the brand owner the chance to stock one style bottle and change the graphics on an as-needed basis.
Atlantic Printing & Graphics offers up to 10 color printing on a variety of shrink films. We also work with your designers to engineer die lines for maximum graphics area usage and supply three dimensional proofing which allows full rotation in real time. We can accommodate quicker revisions before moving forward to digital printing on the final shrink material. These can then be applied to your container for comps that provide the closest example to the final product.
Atlantic Printing & Graphics Commercial Printing capabilities include both digital and offset presses with up to 6 color printing. Our presses handle a multitude of fine papers and can print as thin as 40# stock. Our bindery equipment includes 3 Polar Guillotine Cutters, 4 MBO Folders, and 1 Saddle Stitcher.
Our digital department features the new Xerox Color 1000 which can print two-sides, fold, collate and stitch all in-line. This machine is ideal for those with short run needs. However, if your order has volume, Atlantic features a Heidelberg SM 102 Press with Perfecting capabilities 5/1 or 4/2.
Our advanced equipment selection allows us to fulfill your commercial printing needs both efficiently and cost-effectively.
Have you ever hated that moment of committing to new graphics before going to market with a new launch? How about placing that next order for labels or cartons when you just KNOW that there are changes coming up? Or maybe you are carrying more inventory than needed just to get better unit pricing.
Atlantic Printing & Graphics prefers to work with our customers and learn their needs in order to put together a program that increases their efficiencies while decreasing obsolete print packaging. Our combination of digital and traditional analog printing provides you with options. This also allows us to react to time critical situations by being able to provide short runs quickly while tooling up for the big picture. Add to this our various warehouse locations and we can work with you to offer methods and print schedules to keep your graphics relevant, stay current with industry regulations and keep your inventory under control.
Atlantic Printing & Graphics knows that one of the most damaging impressions to your brand is inconsistency on the retail shelf. When a customer looks at a retail shelf, they will notice variations in color between a brand’s folded carton sitting next to their bottle with a pressure sensitive label which is next to their new special shape spray pump with the shrink sleeve. The shelf appearance between all these packages speaks to the product inside. Inconsistent packaging can lend an impression of a low quality, inconsistent product.
Yet printing on a variety of substrates as in the example above, utilizing different print methods, inks and finishes can often lead to just this result. When various packaging components are printed at different vendors, the chance of color inconsistency just increases. Atlantic Printing & Graphics offers a one stop shop for all your package printing needs that ultimately flow through the same Quality Assurance standards before going out the door.
Whether you need assistance with graphics design from a blank slate, structural design of a functional carton or choosing the right adhesive for a challenging label environment, our team is ready to help. We have engineers, designers and operational teams that have been in the packaging print industry for over 30 years. We have the knowledge needed to protect your product, display it on the shelf for optimal consumer recognition and assure that it will maintain it’s integrity. At the same time, we are consistently using our knowledge to identify ways to save you time and money.
