Technological innovations continue to improve manufacturing and packaging. With just in time inventory and delivery, manufacturers can benefit from packaging that is easy to order in precise amounts. Discover how flexible packaging printing is changing the way small and mid-sized businesses package their inventory.
Traditional packaging can come with several hidden fees and expenses. Typical packaging requires large orders to offset plate fees and other one-time processing and setup fees. However, bulk orders run the risk of becoming obsolete.
Instead, flexible packaging and innovative wide-web digital printing technology allows flexible packaging to be made in exact amounts with little turnaround. This enables both the packaging provider and your company to save money on printing and setup costs. Keep your packaging up-to-date and eye-catching by implementing new designs as often as you like.
Improved Customer Convenience
Customers love the convenience of flexible packaging. These packages can be made in multiple formats for use with different types of inventory. Packaging options can include the following:
- Flat pouches
- Stand-up pouches
- Roll stock
- Resealable zippers
- Child-resistant packaging
The air-tight seal of these packages helps ensure a longer shelf life for a variety of products. Many manufacturers are turning to flexible packaging due to its lightweight convenience. If you need specialized packaging for any product, particularly a small order, flexible packaging allows you to create a package design that stands out and is convenient for your customer.
Digital printing has opened up a whole new way to reduce waste while providing quality packaging. Unlike traditional packaging, flexible packaging that is digitally printed uses less material in the first place.
It’s safe to use for organic food packaging and is a more sustainable alternative that has a significantly smaller footprint than other forms of packaging. From production and transportation of unfilled packaging to the amount of packaging produced to fulfill the same needs, flexible packaging is a great alternative to help protect the environment.
Easily Personalized Packaging
Digitally printed packaging is one of the most customizable options available to manufacturers. Because every step of your package design and manufacturing is done digitally, even small orders can be completely personalized for unique packaging requirements. Alter every aspect of your packaging for multi-SKU orders and avoid any additional fees.
If you need a custom order to reflect a particular marketing campaign, variable imaging can easily adjust your package requirements to add new graphics and promote your current campaign. Unlike other forms of printing, you won’t have to wait for additional setup or be charged fees for modifying your orders on demand.
These are just a few benefits that many manufacturers are already enjoying thanks to the latest advances in digital printing and packaging. The HP Indigo 20000 press, along with other advances, create a streamlined packaging model that assists small businesses in competing internationally.
