Enhancing the Customer Experience with Custom Printed and Branded Packaging

Customer Service Satisfaction Survey - Concept

I admit that I have finally reached the point in my career where almost everyone I deal with in business is younger than me; in some cases, much younger than me. I am enjoying it tremendously because I find the combination of my age and experience, mixed with their youthful energy and creativity results in some great looking and effective packaging. They come up with the most amazing original ideas and I show them how to best accomplish the desired outcome at the lowest possible cost. One of the things that I most enjoy about working with young, creative marketing people is their refreshing focus on the customer.

I agree … Read More

Compostable Packaging for Farmer’s Markets

A growing need for compostable packaging at farmers markets

Communities Drive Compostable Packaging Requirements

Farmers markets such at Boulder Colorado, Marin County, Austin, and Berkeley are some places leading this trend and have taken the higher ground to establish sustainable practices within their communities. Policies which require farmers market vendors to use compostable packaging, labels, and bags are becoming more common, as it is already in Europe. The initiative toward zero waste goes beyond recycling as the drive is to close the loop by reducing reliance on unsustainable and finite resources.

A focus to eliminate adhesive labels with plastics and plastic bags is at the heart of this important shift. For example, Americans use 100 billion plastic bags annually … Read More

E-Commerce and Subscription Boxes – Keeping it simple and green!

custom printed mailer box, one color on Kraft

We have done a tremendous number of multicolor RSC and die cut mailer boxes of every style, size and shape. However, there are times when our clients prefer a minimalist approach to branding. Let’s face it, is there a more effective or minimal branding than the iconic Amazon “smile”?

Keeping it simple and avoiding multiple colors can make a lot of sense from several perspectives including mailer box cost as well as flexographic print plate cost. That does not mean the end result has to look plain or boring. Check out these recent boxes we helped our customers create:

Groovy Lab in a Box – their design makes maximum use … Read More

NEW! Enhanced Digital Print for Packaging Capabilities

multi-color without plates

We are constantly adding new manufacturing partners and potential solutions to our lineup because our customers’ needs are always changing and expanding.

Most of the printing we do on corrugated board and paperboard is high speed flexographic, resulting in great results at the lowest possible cost. However, there are times when more is needed in terms of flexibility or image quality and digital printing fills a very important void for high quality but short run applications.

No Cutting Dies? No Printing Plates? No problem!

While flexographic printing is by far much more economical on a cost per piece basis, it can also be expensive from a startup perspective because the … Read More
