The process of adhering a lithographically-printed label onto a combined corrugated sheet. Full labels cover the entire corrugated sheet; spot labels cover only a portion of the sheet.
These value-added services are typically used for multi-piece corrugated products such as point-of-purchase displays. All of the pieces that comprise a full display unit are packed together, and sometimes product is packed into the unit as well.
Point-of-purchase (POP) displays are corrugated structures, usually printed with high-quality graphics, that contain multiple sellable units of a product and serve as sales tools for the product.
Point-of-sale (POS) packaging is intended to serve both as a container and a sales tool to attract attention on the store shelf. It is usually printed with high-quality graphics and is typically the primary package that the consumer removes from the shelf and takes home with the product inside.
The ability to print more than one ink color directly on the corrugated board in a single pass through the converting equipment.
A value-added service to provide development of packaging graphics. This service includes pre- and post-print expertise for flexographic and lithography printing.
This plant offers quick turnaround times from when you place your order to when it is delivered.
The in-house capability of developing the physical design and structural specifications for the corrugated packaging. Tools used include computer-aided design (CAD) software and performance modeling formulas.
