Your product label may be the first impression that potential customers have of your brand, and by combining sustainable product labels with your eco-friendly products and packaging you can demonstrate your brand’s commitment to sustainability.

TIP #1: Stickers at Events to Leave an Impression

Packaging for E-Juice or Vape

Vape in 4 bottle presentation box

As people attempt to overcome their addiction to cigarettes, or simply look for a more convenient, affordable and socially acceptable form of enjoying their habit, E-juice, or vape as it is often called, is growing into big business. You see the shops opening and unfortunately, often times quickly closing in many strip mall retail settings, while many more successfully reach that fast growing market through a low cost internet business.

Many agree E-commerce is the easiest, lowest cost road to success for selling E-juice and this of course creates a need for low cost, effective packaging. It also provides numerous packaging challenges because of the variety of bottle types and sizes, as well as the various counts that people choose to promote.

Custom and semi-custom packaging options

Prototypes, samples and short runs for custom printed packaging

Rigid box with outer shipper prototypes

We are often asked if we can produce a few boxes, samples, prototypes, mock-ups, etc., for a wide variety of reasons. The answer with some fairly rigid limitations is definitely yes. However this is a process that is not for everyone.

As a grandfather of four beautiful little girls between the ages of five and eight, this new box immediately caught my attention. Imagine a program designed to stimulate and empower young girls at their most impressionable age? The founder of this unique program did just that and we believe it has great and far reaching potential for a new generation of young ladies.

As their web site and program is being developed they … Read More

“Flexo Friendly” Art Design for Subscription and E-commerce Boxes

Awesome Check Box Ticked Red

We have the pleasure of working with a wide variety of graphic artists with amazing talent. However, many of them are used to working on the internet creating digital graphics for web sites and web pages. Even the ones who have worked in packaging typically create designs that are offset or digitally printed on fine paper, labels, or paperboard such as cartons or display cards.

Printing directly on corrugated board, on a flexographic press is different because it uses polymer print plates that pick up the water based ink and deposit it on the board, much like a rubber stamp and ink pad work together.

What Makes Flexographic Printing Different?

The “plate to board” process may make it difficult to print SOME fine details and characters to be printed cleanly. … Read More
