Video: Creating a Stand-Up Pouch

December 7, 2016

Have you ever wondered what goes into making your Stand-Up Pouch? Associated Labels and Packaging has created this quick clip to demonstrate what goes into this complex process.

Once your artwork has been thoroughly examined and approved by our in-house art department, we are able to create printing plates. These plates are sent to our press for set up. Our quality control team will conduct checks at various stages of the printing process to ensure our premium standards are met. Once the stock has been printed (and if required), we then send the printed rolls to another machine to be lacquered, followed by an additional machine to be laminated. Still two more machines left in the process! We need to slit or cut the rolls (which can be printed more than one across) to be able to fit our pouching machine. Finally the pouching machine folds, punches, heat seals the zipper and finally cuts the Stand-Up Pouch off the roll, ready for use!

As the flexible packaging industry gets more and more complicated, Associated Labels and Packaging is at the head of the pack. After four years of research and development, our team produced North Americas first Non-GMO, Backyard Compostable, Stand-Up Pouch. We are proud to be able to offer companies this environmentally sustainable alternative.

We also want to give a shout out to Sugar 2.0; such an amazing company to work with. It’s also nice to work with companies who are doing things to change the face of their industry. Sugar 2.0 “started with one father’s desire to lower his kids’ sugar intake — with a solution they’d actually love.”

Eat Your Heart Out “How It’s Made,” KING KONG Installation Time Lapse Video

December 14, 2015

3-king-kong-1933-granger

We used chains, cranes, crates, bananas, measuring tapes, tape, spray paint, plastic, trucks, gloves, more bananas, drills, saws, hammers, lifts, ladders and the like to get King Kong into her new home here at Associated Labels and Packaging.

Over the course of three days we held a skull island human sacrifice ceremony to finally calm down King Kong’s temper tantrums. She is now content and feeling right at home with all of her needs being met. She fits right in with our company culture and goes out of her way to make customers happy. For example, we have trained her to slam her hands down to make 1,000,000 impressions in just three hours! What a feat!

If you would like to come view King Kong or feed her, please contact sales@associated-labels.com with your requests.

[WARNING: No Gorillas were harmed in this process]

From our Blog post in June:

The Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, has been designed for the highest quality printing of flexible packagings. Flexible packaging continues to rise while it is used in nearly all industries: dairy and cheese packaging, snack foods packaging, dried fruits and nuts packaging, coffee and tea packaging, pharmaceuticals packaging, vitamins and supplements packaging.  Transport packaging and over wraps for beverage bottles and cans or packaging of sanitary products have become more and more sophisticated too. Flexible packaging for the industrial sector such as building materials, chemical products or pet food require a high-quality print.
