When we stepped into any supermarkets, grocery stores, etc. to buy something, we will notice that most of the items on the shelves in these places are all packed in nice and neat packages. Some of them come in cardboard boxes, some in vacuum plastic packages, some in tins, and many other packages. Inside these packages, the content can be in various forms such as powder, liquid, paste, granules, and etc. Packaging is used to contain the items inside a package and it is also to protect the item from contamination, or from damage.
The printing of labels and the graphic designs on the packaging help customers identify the products we are looking to buy. Every product has its own label and design for identification. The more attractive and striking the graphic, the more it will attract customers to it. The labels help us with information concerning the content inside the package such as the ingredients, manufacturing and expiring dates, origin or source of the product, instructions on storing of the products, etc.
The packaging printing company takes care of the printing of the packages. Once the packaging printing is done, they will be delivered to the manufacturer of the product to be used for packing. Usually the products are packed in smaller packages ready for the shelves in the supermarkets or stores. These smaller packages are then repacked into bigger boxes or crates ready for export or distributions to the different purchasers.
All over the world, various materials are used for packaging to store both edible and non-edible products and most of these packages ended up as trash. Some companies are now using materials that are biodegradable or eco-friendly. Some companies are also focused on using packages that are recyclable.
Well-designed packaging printing plays an important advertising role in the marketing of the products. Designers are coming up with many eye-catching designs that will help sell the products or to boost up the sales of the products. Poor design or packaging will also greatly affect the sales of the products. Printing companies are now moving into digital flexible packaging printing.
