Design & Reproduction
Masters & Adaptations


The packaging is the first visual and haptic contact of your product to the consumer. We make it our job to create a coherent image and create effective visual worlds.

From design conception and style guide development to the creation of master and adaptation designs - we help to make your brand tangible for the specific target groups and always have the respective brand identity in mind.

With our passion for professional packaging design with distinctive looks, we want to accompany your brand. We can also easily produce packaging samples as photo-realistic 3D representations or as haptic dummies.


Köstlin Prepress Services stands for competent know-how in printing process-specific data preparation. No matter which printing process is used, we provide qualified support for the interface between design and print production of your packaging orders.

Final artwork, print data creation, image processing and production control - our comprehensive work takes into account all parameters for a precisely defined end result.

By carefully preparing the data, we develop the decisive framework conditions for a successful and repeatable print implementation of your design on the different packaging types and substrates.

Our team thus guarantees you the highest quality print results through excellent data preparation and exploitation of all optimisation potential in the pre-press stage.

Family business. History packed since 1978.

In 1978, the Köstlin company emerged from Großgalvanoplastik Albert Köstlin in Stuttgart and was re-founded as it exists today.

Since then, the graphic arts industry has fundamentally changed through the use of digital work processes. The change from labour- and material-intensive, artisanal reproduction processes to digital publishing was successfully managed in the mid-1980s and 1990s.


We have always supported our customers with state-of-the-art technology and extensive expertise, seeking the highest quality standards and joint further development.
In order to be able to meet these requirements in the future, technological and market-specific developments are closely monitored and implemented for operational progress. This way you can be sure to be served professionally, with expertise and the latest technology at all times.
