Sustainable Packaging at Sunrise Packaging

Eco-friendly, or sustainable packaging, is on the horizon. Luckily, Sunrise has already ahead of the curve on this trend. 

As concerns about the ability to reduce, reuse and recycle increase, the need for companies to utilize earth-friendly principles is rising as well. It's a trend that is pushed by more than just consumer desire. According to Environmental Leader, the market for sustainable packaging will exceed $354 billion by 2027.

What's Driving the Sustainable Packaging Market?

Awareness of environmental issues is definitely one driver for the increase in demand for this type of packaging. But along with that, government regulations are taking effect as well.  The food and beverage industry is seeking out more sustainable packaging, consumers want to feel better about their consumption, and let's be honest: there's limited space for trash on the planet, so we need to figure out a better way to pack things. 

Sunrise makes more than just sustainable packaging. We can also make eco-friendly items, like conference badges and luggage tags. Using soy-based inks on 100% recycled materials with no lamination, these items will have a life beyond single-use. Which is a great look for any organization or conference.

Eco-Friendly Packaging Challenges

While there are many reasons to implement practices that are environmentally friendly, it's not quite as easy as waving a magic wand. Many developing countries lack the resources or infrastructure to implement sustainability. Not to mention the systems that are needed to support recycling, and awareness campaigns to reduce consumption and reuse as possible. 

At Sunrise, we're excited to be part of the solution regarding our eco-friendly options. If you're looking to make the switch to packaging that is recyclable as well as made from recycled materials, you're in the right place. Reach out to our team for more information!

Handmade Boxes: The Je Ne Sais Quoi of Packaging

The value of handmade boxes can be immeasureable, but luckily, it's part and parcel of what we do at Sunrise Packaging. 

Crafting value out of a variety of materials takes the talent of many with the vision and trust of our customers. It's truly an honor to be entrusted to bring the desires of our customers to life. And it's not a responsibility we take lightly. Every package we create is imbued with that "je ne sais quoi" or that certain something.  They're unique packaging styles. Attractive boxes for distinguished promotions. To us, it simply comes down to a simple fact: we ensure that quality is present at every level of creation when it comes to our packaging projects. 

That Certain Something of Handmade Boxes

Of course, crafting unique packaging is more than the physical labor of building handmade boxes. There's design work and proper selection of decorative elements. The purpose of the box or packaging helps determine this particular element. For example, our decorative or display kits might look drastically different from the front open boxes in the photos to the side. 

In the example here, the presentation packaging style is evident. There's a magnetic flap to aid in easy opening and viewing of the product. We opted for offset printing and matte lamination for a look that's polished yet functional. These are pieces that take a different skillset than the manual box construction.

Crafting Our Clients' Visions

When a prospective client comes to us with an idea, we can work out specifications fairly quickly. We can leverage our decades of experience to advise on best practices for various industries as well as come up with a sliding scale of costs depending on the elements a client wants to include. But one thing we always bring to our projects is ... well, that hard to describe factor. You know it when you see it, and we guarantee that we bring it to your project.
