SunDance sparkled at the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) 29th Annual Gold Leaf Awards, taking home a silver and a bronze for demonstrating excellence in foil embossing and diecutting. The Gold Leaf Awards is an international competition celebrating the best in print embellishments, finishing and binding.
SunDance recently completed an SGP recertification audit, a rigorous process we go through every 2 years. SGP stands for the Sustainable Green Printing Partnership and is the only print-production specific certification program focused on all aspects of sustainability within a print manufacturing organization. SunDance was the first offset printer in the state of Florida to achieve SGP certification, one of only 62 SGP certified companies in the USA and Canada.
In the post-COVID era, all of us are familiar with supply chain issues and what they can mean for everything from lettuce and soap to cat food and paper goods. The availability of a particular product may come and go without pattern or warning. Unfamiliar substitutes may be offered which fail to meet the standards of the original. We may be able to order the original, provided we are willing to wait months to receive it. Or, when/if the original finally returns to the shelf, it may be priced substantially higher than before.
The fact is, these and other supply chain disruptions have become so commonplace we now accept them with hardly an eyeroll, more or less. Still, we remain eternally optimistic this condition is only temporary and things will return to normal someday soon.
SunDance works with many print publications around the country, but when New Bridge Polo Magazine came to us in the summer of 2021, we knew it was going to be something special. The magazine needed to be bold, beautiful, eye-catching, impeccably printed and with great attention to color and detail. After all, this was a two time national print media award winner knocking at our door!

As a leading producer of printed packaging in the Southeastern U.S., Sundance creates eye-catching flexible packages that promote your unique brand and effectively market your products. Flexible packaging can be printed traditionally, on offset presses, when high volumes are needed. And flexible packaging can be printed digitally, on our HP Indigo digital press, when certain other needs must be met. The following five scenarios make digitally printed flexible packaging your perfect choice.
SunDance is a leading producer of printed packaging in the Southeastern U.S., including flexible packaging and child-resistant packaging. Recently, our flexible 4 x 6 stand-up pouch was officially certified as child-resistant by an independent testing facility, meaning that it meets the requirements of the Poison Prevention Packaging Act, (PPPA), as mandated in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 16, Part 1700.20.
Over the past few years, you may have noticed a shift in trends at the grocery store. Pastas once sold in cardboard containers are now in pouch bags, plastic apple sauce cups now compete with squeeze bottles, and large bulky detergent pod containers have been replaced with sleek bags and child- resistant zippers. What is this new style of packaging, and is it here to stay or just a passing trend?
