Posted by Elaine Spitz on Jan 24, 2013 10:38:00 PM

Here's an excerpt from a fascinating article on the "Bored Panda" blog, self-proclaimed as "the only magazine for pandas." I've always thought of great packaging as art, in it's own way, but this is extraordinary.

Packaging and Buried Treasure

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Feb 2, 2012 9:15:00 AM

From guest blogger Albert Greenhut of EMI.

I recently spent a year working in South Africa. The majority of my working hours were spent navigating the winding streets of townships helping organize and manage HIV/AIDS educational programs for kids. In my free time I tried to put myself in fun adventurous situations, like bungee jumping over the Zambezi River (in which I rafted down the class 5 rapids the day before), island hopping in northern Madagascar, safaris, climbing Kilimanjaro, and hunting in the South African bush.

Packaging: It's All in the Swing

Posted by Joe Spitz on Dec 6, 2011 9:43:00 AM

The weather has been unseasonably warm in New England recently, allowing us in this hardy group to participate in outdoor activities such as one of my favorites, hitting golf balls at the driving range. Because of surgery and the subsequent recovery, I haven’t been able to golf for the last few years, but with nice weather and a now-healthy body, it was great to swing the club at the ball again. Of course, for a rusty golfer, there were more misses than that crisp feeling of striking the ball cleanly.

Good Packaging - Star of the Day

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Nov 18, 2011 7:15:00 AM

We've discussed here before the notion that manufacturers and distributors of packaging take a beating in the press, particularly from those who (rightfully) would have us be "greener" or more "eco-friendly". The fact is, the packaging industry makes changes to implement a more environmentally friendly focus daily. New materials, processes, waste elimination, recycling and upcycling capabilities and more are always in progress, coming to a grocery or factory shelf near you. More discussion is given in the mainstream press about retail packaging, however, the same eco-friendly mindset is being established within all industries, not just those to which the consumer has direct access.

Quality and Innovation in Packaging

Posted by Joe Spitz on Sep 19, 2011 6:59:00 AM

My wife returned from her business trip to Las Vegas with a gift for me. Elaine said the trade show she visited was fascinating, but my mind was focused on the shiny gift bag she held in her hand.

The smallish, designer, bottom and side gusseted, heavy card stock bag is a distinguished, full-color print to match the color scheme of the product inside. From the flat bottom, the shape tapers inward toward the opening, which features a die cut handle and ribbon closure. Inside the bag is a box surrounded by clear shrink wrap.

Packaging Industry Can Reduce World Hunger

Posted by Elaine Spitz on Jun 3, 2011 5:34:00 AM

"The food packaging industry can make a valuable contribution to reducing the wastage of food. Appropriate packaging strategies help to protect food along the value chain and to make food available to more people. Packaging preserves food, protects it from physical damage and temperature influences and makes it transportable.” At the recent Interpack 2011 trade event in Dusseldorf, Germany Christian Traumann, president of the event and chief financial officer of Multivac, acknowledged the issue of food waste as one of the most pressing problems we face worldwide.

Packaging Mil Spec Clarification

Posted by Joe Spitz on May 19, 2011 5:42:00 AM

The US Military has packaging specifications to which companies packing products for military use, if so designated in their contract, should adhere.  The central document is the MIL-STD-20731E Standard Practice for Military Packaging.  This 183 page document has a great deal of information for contractors to follow, including definitions such as what is reusable, what is consumable, how to prepare the product for packaging, marking, etc.  The 2073 document also includes the methods on how to package.  For instance, Method 41 – “Watervaporproof bag, heat sealed. The item, preserved, wrapped, and cushioned as required in 5.2.3.6, shall be enclosed in a close fitting heat sealed bag conforming to MIL-DTL-117, Type I, Class E, Style 1, 2 or 3; or Type I, Class F, Style 1; or Type II, Class E, Style 1. (Note: For electrostatic protection refer to 5.2.4.1.)”.
