"I love graphic art and have always wanted my company to be considered the best for the print quality of its closures. We have invested a lot in people, technologies and equipment to achieve this goal" L. Strocco

Our closures.
Protection, functionality but also maximum graphic impact

Packaging: a fundamental marketing lever

Packaging represents the visual identity of a brand and is becoming increasingly important in an integrated marketing strategy.

Original packaging can make a product more distinctive and glamorous and attract consumer attention. Moreover, many consumers judge the quality of a product from its packaging, even before buying and consuming it.

A closure no longer plays a merely functional role but is an integral part of the brand’s communication system.

Combining efficiency and beauty: Astro's DNA

At Astro we have always attached the utmost importance to the design and graphic quality of our closures:
  • we are constantly carrying out research into materials, paints and printing techniques to find new solutions that meet and anticipate the needs of our customers
  • we have installed state-of-the-art in-house structures and systems, which are not widely used in our market, in order to guarantee the best possible quality in this area too
  • we use all the printing techniques available on the market today, such as:
    • Hotfoil
    • Inkjet
    • Lithograph
    • Off-set
    • Relief (also with hotfoil and tampo)
    • Tampography

with any type of finish: glossy, matt and semi-matt, metallic and pearlised

  • Thanks to our constant research, we have also developed the Orion system – a special capsule finish with UV-sensitive anti-counterfeiting paints – designed specifically for wines, spirits and liqueurs of particular excellence, those most exposed to falsification and adulteration.

Our in-house graphics department:

an Astro exclusive to make all your design requirements possible and efficient

Graphics are so important to us that we have set up an in-house graphics department capable of designing and producing sketches to meet customer requirements, in full compliance with the bottle and label layout.

Working in close contact with our in-house technical team and liaising with your creative agency, our graphics department will take care of:

  • checking the technical feasibility of the packaging proposed
  • proposing production solutions at graphic level (predeformation, lithographic and offset printing), for the materials used (photosensitive and metallic paints and glitter) or the processes (hot-foil, tampography, punching) best suited to achieving the desired result.

Moreover, in keeping with Astro’s “All-in-One-Site-production” philosophy, our graphics department has a pre-printing and photogravure laboratory with state-of-the-art techniques to support the lithographic and offset departments.

This is an important advantage, which only Astro offers its customers, because it allows:

  • in-house production of the printing systems, guaranteeing maximum precision and reduced times
  • real-time intervention in the event of problems, with prompt reconstruction of plates and cylinders without any impact on production times
