Paperboard packaging is an ecological choice
The reduction of plastic in product packaging has been a hot topic for several years. We are elated to see the cosmetics and food industries introduce new, more ecological packaging, reducing their negative effect on the environment. Paperboard is suitable for many kinds of packaging. It’s a fully recyclable material made from renewable, natural resources. Well-designed paperboard packaging is truly an ecological choice: moving away from plastic packaging conserves nature and reduces carbon dioxide emissions.
There are differences in various kinds of paperboard. To ensure the smallest possible carbon footprint, it’s essential to know the origin of the wood material utilised. Papermark only uses paperboard certified according to FSC® and PEFC™ standards. We want to ensure the sustainability of our production.
THE PURPOSE OF PACKAGING IS TO PROTECT THE PRODUCT AND TO REDUCE WASTE
Pakkausmateriaalit tuottavat luonnollisesti oman osansa tuotteiden hiilijalanjäljestä, ja yksi alan trendeistä on myös irtomyynti. Kuluttajapakkaus puolustaa kuitenkin paikkaansa siksi, että se suojaa tuotteita ja sellaisena lisää niiden käyttöikää. Ilman suojaavaa pakkausta, olisi suuri osa ostamistamme tuotteista nuhjuisessa kunnossa jo ennen kaupan hyllyyn päätymistä.
Could you imagine buying a light bulb without packaging? Neither could we. In packaging design, it is possible to both provide sufficient protection for the product and to minimise the use of packaging materials.
PAPERBOARD PACKAGING IS A MARK OF SUSTAINABILITY
Consumers conscious about the environment have already learned to choose products with ecological packaging. Bioplastics made from renewable resources have been introduced to the market, but telling them apart from oil-based plastic is very difficult. Paperboard packaging, however, is a clear message to the consumer that the packaging in question was created with the purpose of ecological sustainability and recyclability.
We will gladly provide assistance in designing ecological packaging, as well as in choosing the most environmentally friendly options for printing colours, glues and effects. >> Contact us
PACKAGING IS BRAND COMMUNICATION
Besides ecological benefits, paperboard packaging also provides nearly endless possibilities for customisation. Various shapes, cutouts, colours, and post-processing methods make for the best possible way to communicate the message of your brand to the consumer.
Even the feel of the packaging surface communicates many things, and this is also susceptible to trends. Where a shiny gloss was once a sign of luxury, the same is now communicated through an unaltered matte surface. Whatever the message your brand wishes to convey, our paperboard processing provides numerous possibilities to bring it out in your packaging. >> Read more about our post-processing services.
