During discussions with current and potential clients, it’s not unusual for brand owners to say they’re looking for Eco-friendly packaging options. In response, we ask the client, “What are your Eco-friendly goals?” Most times, they respond, “I want my packaging to be recyclable.” This answer leads to a deeper discussion about Eco-friendly terms such as recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable in relation to packaging.
In an earlier blog, Recycling, Packaging, and the Environment, we discussed the importance of considering the life cycle of a given type of packaging, especially when clients are looking to reduce landfill waste or create fewer greenhouse gasses. In this post, we’ll analyze Eco-friendly terms and their relationship to packaging options.
We help our trade show attendees three ways. First of all, pre-show, we help them create customized mailing programs to reach out to their database and their prospects to invite them to the show, letting them know where their booth is. Along those lines, we also recommend not being too salesy about that, provide some useful tips about the city, where the show is taking place. For instance, provide a list of the top five steakhouse restaurants close to the trade show location, something along those lines.

Generally speaking, more is more, right? Nowhere is this aphorism truer than in the world of color. Gone are the days of having to print strictly in plain old boring 4 color CMYK color space. These days, color is bold and exciting and vibrant, and sometimes, you just can’t get that with conventional CMYK color. That’s where 6 and 7 color presses come in, and at SunDance, we not only have the ability to print with 6 and 7 color presses - we also know how to use them.
Brands and entrepreneurs are constantly looking for ways to differentiate themselves from their competitors in crowded marketplaces. And one of the best ways of doing this is to use custom packaging.

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “don’t judge a book by its cover.” While that’s an important rule in polite society, it goes right out the door when it comes to retail applications.
