At the PCD Congress 2017 in Paris next January, rigid box specialist Pollard Boxes will demonstrate how the use of windows in boxes, along with a range of specialist decoration and finishes, can enhance a wide variety of luxury, gift and presentation packs for the personal care sector.
The company’s specially-developed automated window technology allows automatic cutting of the window shape combined with a special pick and place system to position the film between the board and the paper. This provides a neater finish than can be achieved by the more usual hand finished method.
The method ensures that the window sits flush with the rest of the box, with neat edges both on the inside and outside that mean there is less likelihood of the pack being damaged during transit or in use. The technology also enables different shaped windows to be produced, offering additional design flexibility in the creation of eye-catching packs that maximise shelf stand-out.
A range of decoration options can be used to further enhance brand differentiation. Among the specialist finishes on display will be sparkle and soft velvet effects, multi- colour printing, spot UV varnish, embossing, hot foil stamping and gloss and matt lamination.
Pollard’s comprehensive in-house service, comprising design, manufacture, decoration and finishing, and the availability of a fulfilment operation, means the company can handle an entire project from concept to delivery.
