Finding a Compatible Label Packaging Partner

Jul 17, 2014 07:00 AM

Print Brokers and Contract Packaging companies (co-packers) are facing increased demand from brand owners to become true turnkey, one stop shops.

Brand managers are looking for a co-packer that can facilitate all their filling and packaging needs, to act as a single point of contact. This does not necessarily mean the co-packer must invest in every service under the sun, though, when the same services can be offered through close relationships with partner companies.

In the same way, brokers are frequently called upon to make referrals to packaging suppliers and fulfillment companies to round out their print offerings.

Don't Leave Labels for Last! 4 Reasons Great Labels Require Careful Planning

Apr 01, 2014 11:30 PM

When should you order your labels, and what preparations need to be made before you do? All too often, packaging is an afterthought. With containers, closures, and labels all needing to work together, you should always plan ahead.

As you take a million little steps leading to your final launch, remember to include label packaging in the early-to-mid planning stages of your product development cycle.

"Fortune favors the prepared mind." - Louis Pasteur

Since the end result of all your planning and hard work is your product on the store shelf, it's not uncommon to assume labels are the last step, or close to it. We see this fairly often with new businesses, but even long time customers can fall into this trap. Here are 4 reasons to plan ahead.
