A value-added service where the packaging manufacturer oversees and controls levels of finished materials to ensure an uninterrupted supply.
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.
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.
