First impressions are very important, and packaging is the first aspect of a product that attracts customers. Today, companies are investing significant amounts of time and money on packaging their products as it has a major impact on sales. Eye-tracking research conducted by Clemson University showed that products with clear packaging achieved 678 percent more attention than without transparency. Recently, with the onset of COVID-19, there have been rising concerns about people spreading the virus through touch especially in public locations such as brick and mortar stores.
Clear packaging has proven to be very beneficial during the pandemic as customers can easily view the contents of a product and select what they need with minimal contact with the package. The company’s clear gravity chutes prevent people from touching multiple packages as the product can be identified through the clear gravity feeder and only a single one can be pulled from the bottom at a time. Printex Transparent Packaging leverages cutting-edge technology and the most innovative techniques to offer clients the best transparent packaging style and structure for showcasing their products. “From initial packaging concept to final production we provide personalized support and help clients achieve their packaging goals,” explains David Dennison, President of Printex Transparent Packaging.
Printex Transparent Packaging manufactures clear product packaging for many markets including health and beauty, food and beverage, wine and spirits, pharmaceuticals, cell phones, stationery, home entertainment, and apparel. In particular, for the pharmaceutical market, Printex Transparent Packaging provides an extensive variety of packaging for products ranging from toothpaste and off-the-shelf medicines to treatments and prescription roll dispensers. The prescription roll dispenser conveniently dispenses a roll of personalized medication that is pre-packaged by dose by the pharmacy.
The prescription roll dispenser is made of clear PET and usually has some printed custom graphics. The clear dispenser allows the patient to easily pull and tear off their prescribed dose. The clear material also provides a visual cue as to the remaining quantity of the medication. Unlike traditional SBS paper dispensers packaging, PET is more durable, resulting in less potential damage from moisture so the dispenser maintains its pristine look and shape in the customer’s home.
With their expertise in converting clear PET sheets, Printex Transparent Packaging was able to rapidly convert their manufacturing capabilities to very cost-effectively mass-produce PPE. Currently, the company is one of the largest and lowest-cost face shield manufacturers in the country and has produced over 20 million FDA-approved face shields. “Our face shields are proudly made in North America in our Long Island, NY facility and Montreal, Quebec facility,” adds Dennison. Various designs of face shields can be printed with logos and custom-designed to a client’s requirements. Also, for manufacturing, Bump cap shields snap directly onto existing bump caps with no accessories required. For the past several months, Printex Transparent Packaging has had an ongoing partnership with Hamilton Health Sciences, a renowned hospital group. The client required a custom face shield that provided more coverage than conventional face shields and after collaborating on the design Printex Transparent Packaging provided a shield that perfectly met the hospital’s requirements standards. Printex Transparent Packaging continues to produce custom and standard face shields for the client and at the same time makes enhancements based on user feedback.
Printex Transparent Packaging expects much of its growth to come from expanding utilization of its core competencies in working with clear and printed PET packaging. Moving forward, the company continues to expand its offerings in PPE such as face shields and mass-producing very economical desk shields for offices and schools. Leveraging its years of experience with transparent packaging, Printex Transparent Packaging can take on any challenge and deliver exemplary results for clients.
