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 process of adhering lithographically-printed sheets onto singleface corrugated material to produce a singlewall material. Litho lamination is a lower-volume alternative to preprinted linerboard for high-quality printed packaging.
A method of printing from a digital-based image directly to the corrugated board without the need for printing plates. It allows for on-demand printing and short turnaround time and is ideally suited for small-quantity jobs.
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.
This plant is able to efficiently manufacture small-quantity orders.
Corrugated board made with a smaller flute profile, primarily E, F or N flute. Microflute is frequently used for primary packaging and provides for a smoother print surface.
