Man Takes Photo by Press, What Happens Next Will Never Blow Your Mind

Because nothing happened. The only remarkable thing that happened today, was that dude in the background (on top of our new press King Kong) hummed Alanis Morissette all day, it was like riding an emotional rollercoaster.

So King Kong, our new Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, gets bigger and bigger every day. Our excitement grows as we know this press is a game changer. We’ll be able to increase our flexible packaging printing capacity, offer wider web printing and laminating, while super serving our new and existing customers with a flexible packaging printing press that is at the top of the class.

Labels and Flexible Packaging play a huge role in building and distinguishing a brand, if you are new to this world, we’re here to help you out from start to finish. If you know all there is to know about flexible packaging printing – then we don’t need to tell you why King Kong is making us feel like whipping our hair around like Alanis.

Regardless, feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to know more about labels, digital printing, flexible packaging printing, or even label application and packaging equipment.

King Kong is at Sea

April 10, 2015

King_King_ShipAssociated Labels made a trip to Germany to check out its 52″ MIRAFLEX AM named King Kong. King Kong is now at sea, Canada bound aboard the MSC LEIGH Vessel (above) and the “Night Before Christmas” suspense is killing us! We can hardly sleep – we just want it to be here.

We’ve been tracking King Kong online and watching the little ship arrow move not nearly fast enough on this Live Ship Map. The anticipation is worse than falling asleep, in a middle seat, on a long flight – then waking up and realizing what felt like a long nap was only 5 minutes into a 12 hour flight.

The Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52″ MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, has been designed for the highest quality printing of flexible packagings. Quality demands on flexible packaging continues to rise while it is used in nearly all industries: dairy/cheese, snack foods, dried fruits and nuts, coffee and tea, pharmaceuticals, vitamins and supplements.  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.

Flexible Packaging and Stand-up Pouch manufacturing has taken an innovative turn to mirror the change in consumer lifestyle. Conventional and rigid packaging has been replaced by more intricate designs that combine fresh credentials. Recent stand-up pouch product launches in such areas as pet food, soups and stews, sauces, baby food, snack food, fresh-cut produce, ready-to-eat meals, noncarbonated beverages, lawn and garden products, and household goods will contribute to further growth. Growth in demand for pouches is also a function of economics, as the lighter weight packages can vastly reduce both production and transport costs.

Check out our Stand Up Pouch Styles Guide and learn about the following: Doyen Style Gusset (Rounded Bottom) Stand Up Pouch, K Skirt Style Gusset Stand Up Pouch, Plough Style Gusset Stand Up Pouch, 2 Side Seal Bag (Folded Bottom), and 3 Side Seal Bag (Reinforced Bottom).

Our Printing Baby is Born

We’re off to Germany to visit our brand new baby… and this one is advanced.

Of course, every Flexible Packaging Printing parent believes their child is a genius but this is for real. May 2015, our massive 52″ baby is coming home and already packed full of new ideas and technical innovations that will have all of the other moms talking.

Flexible packaging for the industrial sector such as building materials, chemical products or pet food require a high-quality print. Quality printing has always been a core value at Associated Labels – so much that we’ll guarantee it.

Flexible Packaging is the future of consumer goods packaging, “US demand for converted flexible packaging is projected to increase 3.0 percent annually to $18.8 billion in 2017. Long term prospects for converted flexible packaging will be heightened by technology advances to enhance shelf life and protect the package from bacteria and other potential contaminants, with material advances in thinner multiwall bags also generating growth.

Pouches, primarily of a standup construction, will offer significant growth opportunities. Recent stand-up pouch product launches in such areas as pet food, soups and stews, sauces, baby food, snack food, fresh-cut produce, ready-to-eat meals, noncarbonated beverages, lawn and garden products, and household goods will contribute to further growth.
