Downgauging has resulted in a packaging weight reduction of 20 percent
Springfield Solutions has extended its Mock>it packaging mock-up service to include flow wraps, which are used extensively in the confectionery, food, pet food and horticultural industries.
Mock>it enables brand owners and managers to create prototype packaging quickly and cost effectively, so they can carry out market research, and tweak and perfect their branding. Underpinned by digital printing, Mock>it can produce prototyped units in any number, from one to thousands, and tweaks can be made to the design on-screen rather than by producing printing plates such as those required in litho and flexo printing.
In October last year, Springfield Solutions extended Mock>it to include prototype bags and pouches, which have seen a surge in popularity as a way for food and FMCG companies to address environmental concerns. With the latest extension of the service, Springfield Solutions can create prototype flow wraps on a number of substrates, including foil, clear and white.
