Unpoppable Bubble Wrap available now!

by Adam




Sealed Air unpoppable Bubble Wrap IB protective packaging solution. This is now available worldwide.

This is aimed at the e commerce and supply chain sector; the new product will allow companies to create the protective packaging on site, according to their needs and desires.

A large cost for both suppliers and end consumers of bubble wrap is the shipping cost attached to supplying this item. However this new design eliminates this problem.

Sealed Air believes that this reduces the number of trucks required to supply a customer operation by nearly 97%. In fact one truck load of uninflated bubble, using two man hours is the same as 36 truck loads of standard bubble already inflated and 72 man hours 

This is a specialist product that we can supply; don’t hesitate to get in touch to understand this concept in more detail.

With the right protection there is no need to ban tackling in school boy rugby

by Adam





This topic was very prevalent in the news yesterday, over 70 academics and doctors asking the RFU to reconsider tackling in School rugby.

In the open letter to minsters it read,’ injuries from the high-impact collision sport’, can have lifelong consequences for children 

I personally and Packaging supplies as an office, feel this would be sacrilege; to ban tackling it would dent the character building quality you gain from playing rugby.

 

Please follow our tick list, below to keep your children safe

  

1)   Bubble Wrap: A key element of the protection process, bubble wrap when placed correctly around the top of the head and sealed with some fragile tape.(see point 3) Can act as the perfect head guard. Be sure to make some ear holes, so your child can communicate easily on the pitch. Need to hear on the pitch




 

 

2)   Foam Corner Guards: Ideal for protecting the edge of furniture, mirrors or other fragile items. However in this case an ideal replacement for shoulder pads and elbow protection. We really feel we are onto something here with this light weight and ideally shaped product.

 

 

 

3)   Fragile Tape: Printed tape is commonly used to seal parcels or boxes that are in need of a little tender handling, love and care. On the pitch be sure to use this to hold your socks up and for various places where it is necessary to raise attention to a fragile area.

 

 

 

If you want your team colours and logos to be displayed, please go down our bespoke packaging route, we would be more than happy to help. 

  

Please note this is only meant as a little bit of fun to a very controversial subject.

A short guide describing some of the different terms and phrases used to describe a presentation box, display box, rigid box, bespoke and custom made box. These are some of the terms used within the industry.

by Adam




Whether you are a packaging buyer, a marketing department, or a new company start up, getting the right presentational packaging is a huge part of selling your products. This is a guide to make that process easier and enable you to pick the right materials and print options.

 

Die cut boxes

 

·      Designed to fulfill more exacting requirements. Varying designs can be used to provide special display features.

·      For example, crash lock bases, locking tabs, hinged lids, windows and different integral fittings.

·      Depending on whether your requirement is just for a shipping carton for your product or is more to create a visual look, this is where the print option variety comes in. Starting with ‘Flexo’ and moving up to ‘Lithographic’. (Please see bottom of this blog for help with printing options)

·      Many of these options can be suitable for larger presentation boxes.

 

Carton Board (Folding carton boxes)


·      Carton board which can come in a variety of different papers depending on what is the required effect for your product and the necessary strength.

·      Kraft pack for example, is a material that has become very popular with many online and take-away food suppliers, giving an authentic and environmentally friendly image.

Print options

Briefly I will take you through the print options, please look out for our blog next week which will go into more of the details and benefits of using each of the print options.

·      Flexo (Flexographic) the ink for the print is applied directly onto the print stereos made from rubber and this is then transferred on to the printing surface. This process can be used to print on to paper, cardboard as well as many other materials.

·      Litho printing (lithographic) is a match made in heaven for high quality volume printing. The image is made of a polymer coating and applied to an aluminum plate. This style of print is beneficial when fine detail is required. It can be used with many of the materials already mentioned and is also very popular with book printing.
