Custom Rigid Flats

Friday, July 11th, 2014

IMG 5523 300x210 Custom Rigid FlatsPackaging solutions are not limited to boxes and binders! The turned edge products shown here are all custom, rigid flats that serve a vital purpose. From poker chip display to a restaurant check holder, custom turned edge offers hospitality organizations and marketing companies to present their products and services in a unique and memorable piece. Each of these items utilize different custom features- four color print, gloss or matte lamination, and don’t forget about custom debossing! They are great examples of thinking “outside of the box” when it comes to branding. Brand reinforcement is extremely important to foster business relationships and keep a happy and consistent customer base.

 

Medical Device Sales Kit

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

The custom sales kit shown in this video is an interactive packaging solution that keeps products well protected and readily available for demonstration and display. The rigid tri-fold holds guide wires for stents in each panel. The individual products are all organized with interior partitions as well as a magnetic strip across the top of each panel keeping the stents in place. By creating a custom demonstration kit with rigid construction, Abbott Medical used their own graphic design and branding artwork to cover the durable chipboard that makes up the hardcover of the packaging solution. With magnetic closures, internal organization, and unique artwork, this kit is a memorable piece that presents a product and adds value to Abbott’s marketing strategy. Watch the video below to see it in action!

Premium Designer Box

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014

adobe 300x187 Premium Designer BoxThe sophisticated box shown here is for a product from Adobe Ink and Slide pen. The product is meant to contribute to the workflow and needs of graphic designers. A kit like packaging solution, this premium hinged box uses just the right amount of color and white space to appeal to a designer market. The inside tray was custom made to hold the product exactly without risk of damage, but also to house the pen with proper display. While we just found this box on thedieline.com, we very much appreciate the clean and simple design element paired with a high quality rigid box. This shows credibility to the consumer- that the product will speak for itself when it comes to quality, and it is worth the premium box that it comes in.

Rigid Hinged Box

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

United Health 230x300 Rigid Hinged BoxThis is one of the most recent custom boxes made right here at Sunrise Packaging. A fully functioning sales kit, this turned edge hinged box uses colorful artwork and gloss lamination to add an eye-catching element that is sure to draw attention. A rigid box with custom die-cut foam, this packaging solution is right up our alley. Similar to a cigar-style box, this item actually has two cover panels that fold over the main tray. We have made some of these with, and some with out a magnet joining the two flats together, and of course, the boxes with the magnet are much more functional. With this style of construction, our clients have much more real estate to extend their brand and be creative with artwork. Whether using matte, gloss, or soft touch lamination, custom turned edge gives the client or potential buyer the idea that you are adding value to their product, or your services will add value to their business. With rigid, turned edge boxes you are able to make a completely unique item that will turn heads and cultivate relationships with returning customers.

Ranging from turned edge construction, graphic design, foil stamping, and custom plastic thermoforming, this “impress” kit is meant to do just that! These press kits went very fast, and we hope to be producing more shortly!

Wishing you a Happy Retirement: Farewell Steve!

Friday, June 27th, 2014

steve Wishing you a Happy Retirement: Farewell Steve!Today is a bittersweet day for us at Sunrise Packaging, Inc. because we are saying goodbye to one of our long time Packaging Solutions Experts. Steve Sandahl has been a part of the Sunrise Packaging team since 1987- that’s right, he has dedicated almost 30 years of hard work and dedication to our company and we will be forever grateful. A reliable resource in the packaging industry, Steve has seen our business markets shift from cassette packaging, VHS, CD and DVD packaging to more custom, high end marketing and retail packaging solutions- talk about adaptability!

One of the many ways Steve has contributed to our success is his willingness to really listen to our clients needs and help them create a packaging solution that exceeds their expectations. Around here, he was known as one of our “sample masters”; always piecing together custom packaging elements to create something truly unique for his customer. From high end, turned edge sales kits to simple USB Flashpad™ packaging, Steve Sandahl has truly been an expert in his field. Always a positive attitude and a wealth of knowledge to share with the team, we are going to miss Steve tremendously.

While we would like to think he will miss us too, Steve will be thoroughly enjoying his retirement with his beautiful family– his grandchildren are good at keeping him busy. Traveling, golf outings, and sunshine are all good things that Steve has to look forward to…maybe he’ll wander back into the office come January or February!

Wishing you a Happy Retirement!

Turned Edge, Hardcover Versatility

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014

Here at Sunrise Packaging, we try our best to provide clients with the resources, materials, and information in order make an informed decision regarding their needs and preferences for their packaging solutions projects. While we have in the past offered e-flute corrugated options as well as SBS paperboard and poly materials, our in-house specialty is definitely turned edge, also known as rigid construction. The use of durable chipboard and a custom wrap of our clients’ choosing offers an affordable and effective way to stand out among competitors whether the package is for marketing promotions or even a retail product. The three items shown above have all been produced by us with custom turned edge. Ranging from a large intricate sales kit for a tool set, to a simple Flashpad with particularly thick foam and then on to a simple setup box with a bare inside- turned edge packaging solutions are so customizable that all of these products were feasible under the same roof. As a turnkey manufacturing house, we pride ourselves in the ability to source correct materials, print any graphic design or artwork, and of course create a final product that is fulfilled and ready to ship. While turned edge is not a household term, we like to refer to it as hardcover because it is the same way a hardcover text book is made. To see more pictures of the wide variety of turned edge products we have made, we invite you to visit our google+ page or even our tumblr.

Die-Cut Packaging Design

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014

The intricate box shown here is a custom, and interesting package that holds the new line of chai tea from the one and only Oprah Winfrey. The custom die-cut cover of the green box offers a multi-dimensional design that intrigues customers and promotes a well branded product. Here at Sunrise, we love the use of creative design and bright colors to create kit that really stands out against the competition. The use of color and design makes the entire set cohesive and reinforces the brand of tea. While Oprah herself does not need to introduce herself to the world, the brand recognition of her name and chai tea design makes this packaging solution a winner.
