Plastic folding carton and packaging design, fabrication, printing and decorating
Printex has state-of-the-art technologies and patented processes to manufacture the highest quality plastic folding cartons and packaging. We have in-house packaging design engineers and the ability to do full digital printed comps. We have a patented cutting and scoring technology that we use to give you a plastic folding carton that can be hand or machine filled. With the ability to do full process printing, screen printing and many other decorating processes, we can make your product’s packaging tower above the rest.
Sustainable plastic folding cartons and packaging
Printex uses the following materials in the production of plastic folding cartons and other visual packaging applications: PET, PP, PVC, HDPE and PS.
Printex is dedicated to sustainability; we are always in the process of testing new materials that have sustainability claims. We have the following materials available:
- 50% post-consumer recycled content PET
- 30% renewable content (ethanol from sugar) PET
We have fully implemented the five Rs (remove, reduce, reuse, renew and recycle) in to our way of packaging development and design.
Remove – we offer a unique opportunity to provide marketers with product visibility, eye-catching graphics and structural integrity without the need for additional components.
Reduce – we begin each project with this objective – package more while using less. We are able to reduce packaging via innovative design and choosing materials that will provide structural integrity with less overall weight.
Reuse – we use our innovative design abilities to develop packaging that will allow the consumer to reuse it. This achieves the obvious of no waste but also allows the retailer to further promote and brand long-term.
Renew – we continue to work with suppliers of renewable materials, and finding the correct materials that will continue to have the same characteristics as today’s oil-based materials is always a priority for us.
Recycle – all of the scrap and trim materials produced in our packaging manufacturing process are diverted from the waste stream and sent back to our material suppliers. We also offer a 50% post-consumer PET material that is made from recycled water bottles.
