Choose All Three

The saying used to be “Choose Any Two” and the third one would be a consequence of your two choices.  Selecting high quality and high service would yield a high price.  If you wanted a low price formerly you would have to sacrifice either service or quality.  This is generally not true in today’s marketplace. Continue Reading

A Little Stretch Wrap Will Fix That

When you think about packaging, what are the first thoughts that come to mind … boxes, cushion wrap, tape, packing paper and maybe peanuts?  But what is the one thing that is more versatile than any of those items … and most of us forget about?  Stretch Wrap.  I know, you might say, “that’s theContinue Reading

Buy Right and Save Money

There is a lot of commonality between different types of packaging, whether we are talking about packaging like the type PAC manufactures (i.e. flat and bubble poly mailers and paperboard envelopes), or other types of flexible and rigid packaging such as plastic and paper shopping bags, corrugated boxes, folding cartons, paper envelopes, plastic containers, adhesiveContinue Reading

What do You Think of me, Your Customer?

When I get a package in the mail I am always excited! It’s funny how the quality of package my item arrives in tells me something about the company that sent it to me. A few weeks ago I received a book in a brown envelope that was not only hard to open but whenContinue Reading

Hmm… where to start?

Where does one start in order to find the right amount of automation for your organization?  A return on investment (ROI) report that is a collaborative effort between your supplier and your key internal personnel who understand all of your costs of doing business is a great place to start. I always encourage customers toContinue Reading

Your package has arrived…uh oh

Wrong Size,        Wrong Color,               Wrong Style,                       Just don’t like it,                                 Want to return it!                                                 Send it back. How do I package it? If your retailer uses a dual peel n seal PolyJacket from PAC you have the package in your hands already. How does it work – The retailerContinue Reading

Your Mailer is Prime Marketing Real Estate

As a marketing professional it’s hard for me to grasp why a top retailer, or any company shipping out product, would send their customer’s order in an unattractive, hard to open, and sometimes even unprotective package.  It not only makes the retailer look sloppy and careless, but may cost them extra money in returns forContinue Reading

What do Bubble Mailers Have Over Mayflies?

Answer: Longer lifespan…but not by much!  The adult Mayfly, found in the lower half of the United States, lives only one or two nights, while the average life of a mailer, once it has been filled and labeled, only lasts about 3-5 days. Given the fact that you want to make sure your products arriveContinue Reading
