OYA'S NEW PACKAGE GIVES MORE to THEIR CUSTOMERS

(WEST CHESTER, PA March 1, 2018) – Unipak is pleased to welcome Liz Manghisi to their team. Liz’s role as Project Manager allows her to work closely with clients in whatever capacity the project requires; whether it is proofing a job or expediting an order.

“I love the daily interaction with different customers. They all have different wants and needs and being able to manage that is very rewarding,” Liz said when asked what she likes most about her role at Unipak.  “We have an amazing team. It is fun to come to work and be around such knowledgeable people.”

Liz has been in the commercial printing industry for over seven years. Although in her previous job she dealt with direct mail marketing, customer service always played a leading role. She has a strong background in printing and is learning daily about packaging.

OYA'S NEW PACKAGE GIVES MORE to THEIR CUSTOMERS

New Elixir Guitar String Packaging(WEST CHESTER, PA October 2, 2017) – Longtime customer, OYA Beauty, came to Unipak with the desire to update the standard folded carton design used by their True Professional Hair Color line.

Although the previous package fit the need of the product, it lacked the space for important content for OYA’s professional hairstylists and their DIY customers. To help elevate that issue, Unipak’s Technical Sales Manager, Ron Bose, worked closely with the OYA team to develop a 6th panel design.

“This 6th panel, connected by a perforated seam, allows potential OYA customers to cleanly tear away the front card and still leave a beautiful package behind on the display,” Ron said of the new design. “This tear away houses all of the important information OYA’s clients will need, like how-to instructions, ingredients, and reference numbers for future purchases.”

OYA’s new design required Ron, to conduct a site visit to their fulfillment center to help engineer the new machinery needed to fill, fold, and seal the new design.

“We were thrilled to offer OYA this solution with very little cost difference from their previous 4 panel folded carton concept. Everyone was happy with the outcome.”

ELIXIR SETS THE STAGE WITH NEW GUITAR STRING PACKAGING
 

New Elixir Guitar String Packaging

(WEST CHESTER, PA – March 17, 2017) – We teamed up with Goodwin Designs to develop new packaging for W.L. Gore’s Elixir™ Strings division that coincided with the introduction of their Optiweb Coated Electric Strings.

After multiple rounds of exploratory packaging designs, Elixir™ decided to utilize the Iron Cross style envelope over the traditional tuck carton. Even though we added a fair amount of custom finishing with the addition of a soft touch coating and a spot UV varnish, we reduced material weight which helped keep overall cost in line with their old packaging.

 At our client’s request, our production specialists focused on decreasing the possibility of theft by incorporating new anti-counterfeit techniques.

 Elixir™ electric guitar strings, in their new Unipak produced packaging, hit shelves on March 1st.

UNIPAK INC. BREWS UP FRESH NEW COFFEE PACKAGING 

(WEST CHESTER, PA – February 9, 2017) – We are thrilled to continue our association with Philadelphia based La Colombe Coffee Roasters by creating a unique package design for the newest product in their extensive coffee line, Draft Latte.

New La Colombe PackagingLa Colombe approached us with a wish list for their new product packaging. The final design needed to improve the client’s shelf presentation. We achieved the desired effect by using the Komori LS640 multi-color press for top quality output on the design’s full-color imagery. We took the project a step further by using one hundred percent recyclable paper-board. This allowed us to build upon La Colombe’s strong history of earth-conscious practices. 

It was also crucial that the final design of the packaging made it easy for the Draft Latte line to be packaged by hand. Our in-house packaging pros constructed multiple test units until it was decided that a traditional folding carton with a glued lock bottom and tab enclosure lid would achieve the best results.

“It is critical to incorporate the manufacturing and fulfillment process into packaging design. You can create the most unique design around, but it is rendered useless if the customer cannot pack the product efficiently,” Teddy Frain, Unipak Inc.’s VP of Sales and Marketing.

La Colombe Draft Latte was released to the public via Wegmans in January 2017.

TREES INTO CARTONS AND CARTONS INTO TREES
Packaging company, Unipak, teams up with the Paperboard Packaging Council
to celebrate Earth Day and educate fourth graders about recycling and sustainability
 

TICCIT Teaching

 (WEST CHESTER, PA – May 1, 2014) – To celebrate Earth Day and empower Uwchlan HillsElementary School students to become more environmentally conscious and aware of the 

positive impact of recycling and sustainability, Teddy Frain, VP of Sales and Marketing at the West Chester-based packaging company, Unipak, in partnership with the Paperboard Packaging Council, presented the Trees Into Cartons, Cartons Into Trees (TICCIT) educational program on April 25th, 2014.

TICCIT WateringThe Downingtown, Pennsylvania, school welcomed Unipak’s annual presentation with excitement and Frain introduced the program to a new group of fourth graders. The 93 students who participated in this year’s event learned through an interactive presentation, which provided information and statistics on recycling and sustainability, and stressed the importance of planting and preserving trees. After learning about the lifecycle of cereal boxes and paperboard, Frain took the students outside where they planted saplings in milk cartons (which they saved from lunch) and were encouraged to take the saplings home to be planted.

Frain is eager to support this program each year and is honored to give back to the community. In reference to Unipak’s ongoing participation (this is their fifth year), Frain said, “I think it is important for Unipak to help promote the sustainability of paperboard packaging, and the TICCIT program provides a grass roots effort to accomplish this while making it fun for the kids.”
