Online Custom Packaging by Avery for apparel merchandisers
May '09
Apparel and accessories merchandisers can now turn to an informative new online resource from Avery Dennison to evaluate packaging options, access creative design ideas and refresh their package-production knowledge.

The online guide, called “Custom Packaging with Avery Dennison,” can be accessed at http://www.ibmd.averydennison.com/pkgguide. The entire 44-page document is available to download or print.

“It is part tutorial, part thought starter and part package-design aide,” says Alexandra Brownfield, director of product management. “Beyond that, it describes a range of Avery Dennison services that can be tapped globally, such as custom packaging engineering assistance and project management.”

The new guide was created for apparel and accessories merchandising executives who have expressed a need for an industry-specific source of packaging knowledge and assistance.

“The guide is part of Avery Dennison's ongoing effort to deliver innovative packaging solutions that look good, help stimulate sales and support the customer's brand,” adds Brownfield. “We can often identify how to reduce the total cost of packaging, including materials, labor and distribution expenditures. Plus, Avery Dennison checks, tests and verifies the end result of every package solution to ensure product quality and customer satisfaction.”

Primary sections in the guide include: an “Introduction to Custom Packaging,” “Packaging Solutions,” printing and finishing techniques on structural and flexible packaging, and an extensive glossary of packaging terms. Photos, drawings and diagrams illustrate the many finishing options available for each package type.

Global Packaging Services
Avery Dennison provides apparel merchandisers with services ranging from the production of artwork to quality control over the package manufacturing process. With a global network of production locations, Avery Dennison partners with customers from concept to prototype to finished product.These facilities include packaging engineers, cutting tables and sampling capabilities and are located close to every major retailer in the U.S. and Europe to ensure that concepts and white mock-ups are delivered within 48 -72 hours from the time of a project planning meeting.

During design and production, Avery Dennison employs measures that contribute to its customers' ecological sustainability initiatives and uses advanced standards to ensure color consistency. It also provides the technology that satisfies customers' security and product tracking needs.

“It is our goal to reduce ecologically critical plastic content in packaging, specifically PVC, in the form of inner trays, windows & outer paneling, ”Brownfield says of Avery Dennison's green packaging mission. “We also work to reduce the overall package size. This can lower costs by shipping less air and reduce the carbon footprint.”

To ensure print consistency and accuracy, Avery Dennison utilizes Delta readings for spot color and SWOP [Specification Web Offset Publication] standards for process color. RFID solutions, from brand-centric design to integrated security, are available to support virtually any security or supply chain product tracking requirement.
