Like many multifaceted printers serving food, pharma and consumer packaged goods (CPG) categories, our customers’ requests can vary widely. We try to keep our facility and equipment state-of-the-art so we can accommodate a wide range of specifications. In the last few years, we started noticing a trend.
Our customers wanting direct food contact cartons always had the same request – “How can I get high end, creative graphics with quick turnaround? Customers using the larger sizes of gable top cartons (the gallon size for example) and customers using heavier, coated paperboard (more commonly called milk stock) especially found their printing choices to be limited to flexographic printing, less sturdy paperboard and low quality graphics. We heard major challenges such as print registration being so poor that couldn’t even read an ingredients list.
The reasons for choosing gable-top cartons were clear to us – customers want the billboard space to tell their story. Cartons give you that room for branding and selling. And gable-top cartons can be significantly more affordable, costing up to 30% less than their plastic tub counterparts.
At Carton Service, from color controls to critical copy, we successfully meet our customer’s strict requirements on a daily basis. We are able to print on this unique substrate with high impact graphics – giving you a very useful package which protects its contents while maximizing messaging space.
