printing over existing packaging

    I'm new here so hello! Just getting back into print work after spending years only doing websites.

    A potential customer has come to me with an interesting problem. She has got loads of packaging printed up for the teabags she makes but has unfortunately had to change some of the details on it.

    Does anyone know if there's a way to print over the top of existing print? It's in various colours - some over a white background, some in white over a coloured background. The only thing I can think of is a big wraparound sticker but that's gonna look ugly...

    There are thousands of these card boxes and they're really nicely designed. It'd be a pity to waste them...

    Thanks in advance,

    Thanks for your reply. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by net boxes. They're packed flat but glued together at one seam on the side so they're easy to put together.

    I'll look up your website.

    edit- the boxes are 75mm x 45mm x 135mm

    do you reckon this is something you'd be interested in working with? Is there a printing process that'd work with this situation?

    yes we can work with this but we require a scanned image.
    Send to
    mark for the attention of Daimen.
    It would be good to see the image that needs amending. I'm sure we can do it!

    ah fantastic - I'll email over a scan asap. All my local printers have told me it can't be done!
