Research and Development – R&D – is the process by which a company works to obtain new knowledge that it might use to create new technologies, products, services, or systems.

At A2A, this is our favorite part of the creative process.

We approach projects with one goal in mind: we want to produce the best and most accurate proofing and prototyping possible.

We look first at the best production method, not what is the most profitable.

We always ask questions during our initial discussions? How will this be ultimately produced?
Spot colors? CMYK only? What kind of paper or substrate?

We will always try to source the exact paper or substrate. We see the sourcing of exceptional papers as a way of demonstrating our resourcefulness and relationships with suppliers around the world.

Fedrigoni Paper from Italy; Takeo Pachica from Japan; domestic papers from Mohawk and Neenah; no problem.
We simply ask for some timing considerations for the delivery of certain exotic papers and materials.

Sustainable options and solutions, custom-colored PVC cores for cards, acrylics, polycarbonates, PETG, LDPE, HDPE metals, woods, even glass are requested daily by our clients.

All projects are unique; A2A provides unique solutions.
