As companies continue to move toward more sustainable packaging, plastic films will play a greater role. Look around the big home centers and you’ll undoubtedly see plastic wrapped bundles of shingles and shrink wrapped pallets of cement and mortar mix. Historically boxed products, like breakfast cereal, are now appearing on shelves in bag form. Shrink wrap alone has begun to replace cardboard cases and tray packs in the food and beverage industry.
Just because your packaging changes from porous materials, such as cardboard and wood, to non-porous plastics doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your product identification. The same rugged and reliable Matthews Drop-On-Demand valve inkjet printers that have marked your cartons can also mark your plastics. Thanks to our wide variety of fast-drying non-porous inks, you can still get a quality mark, whether you’re printing simple date, time, and lot codes or higher resolution logos and graphics. Our inks come in a rainbow of colors to help you differentiate your products, allowing you to reduce your inventory of pre-printed packaging.
