Print Marketing is Fast Paced —It could use Packsize
Print marketing is an industry that you’re probably interacting with on a daily basis, even if you don’t realize it. The brochures that come in your mail, the corrugated cardboard displays at every store, and even the small cartons that your bottle of allergy medication comes in, are all examples of something that was created by a print marketing company.
Working at a print marketing company can be incredibly unpredictable, and making sure that everything gets packaged, shipped, and delivered without any damage can be a huge pain.
This is where Packsize’s On Demand Packaging® can help.
So why is packaging so hard for printing companies?
Print companies are often creating materials outside of the standard sized 81/2” x 11″ sheet of paper, and the sizes they deal with run the gamut from a carton only a few inches in size, all the way up to a large billboards. The quantities of these products also vary widely.
These products are produced in batches. The printing company will know a few days in advance what kind of order they need to have completed and how far in advance it is. The number of boxes they will need for this shipment could be 1, 100, or 1,000.
So when working with these kinds of orders, keeping a box inventory can be a huge pain. Most of these materials are pretty fragile. The corners of paper-based products are easily damaged, which means that empty space in your boxes is potentially really dangerous to print marketing companies.
Between the large variety of product sizes, order quantities, and the chance for damage, keeping a box inventory can be a huge pain. The floor space that boxes take up can balloon to ridiculously large sizes and obsolescence is an omnipresent problem.
Let’s talk about how On Demand Packaging® can help Print Marketing companies overcome these issues. If you’re interested in a more in-depth look at reducing box inventory, click the link below to read our blog post and learn the three ways Packsize can help save inventory costs.
How On Demand Packaging® Can Help
Not only can Packsize’s machine’s make any size box that print marketing companies need, but they can also make them fast enough to meet the demand that is often required on large rush orders.
In case your products need extra protection, our machines can also produce box insets that will keep corners from being damaged in transit.
When it comes down to it, these companies are printing on demand. Shouldn’t they have On Demand Packaging® too?
