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

December 14, 2015


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 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.


Mr. President, May We Present King Kong

unnamedBeing Canadian, in our willingness not to offend anybody, we have measured King Kong, professionally referred to as the Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52” MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, in metric and imperial.

God saved the Queen, so in fairness to Her Majesty, Canada measures milk, deli meat and driving distances using the metric system. God blessed America, so out of respect to our American brother and sister friends, Canadians buy fruit, construction supplies and measure body height and weight using the imperial system.

And purely for the sake of confusing children born into the age of the internet, Canadians measure weather temperature in Celsius but cook a turkey using Fahrenheit. For your measuring pleasure, we have measured King Kong using both the metric and imperial systems:

Metric: 4 Queen Elizabeths
Imperial: 3 President Obamas

King Kong, Your Majesty

June 24, 2015

Officially, King Kong is almost four Queen Elizabeth’s tall!

King Kong, professionally referred to as the Windmoeller & Hoelscher 52” MIRAFLEX AM 10 Colour Flexographic Printing Press, is flexible packaging royalty.

Much has happened since she arrived in our production facility just weeks ago. Our mechanical and electrical engineers are almost done and within a matter of days, she will be up, running and ready to perform her printing duties.

If you Googled “How Big is King Kong” and were hoping to find a post about the actual size of that enormous gorilla, we hate to break this to you: The Laws of Physics pose limitations to the size of a living organism, and because of gravity and some back woods wizardry we don’t understand, King Kong would be too heavy to actually exist on earth.

If that upsets you, we’re sorry, take your mind off of things and watch Her Majesty The Queen’s favourite Pembroke Welsh Corgis at Heathrow.

King Kong Ma’am.
