Best Way to Wrap a Pallet By Hand

Stretch wrapping is a packaging technique used throughout the industry to secure items to a pallet for transportation.  This technique is especially useful when there are multiple boxes or products to be transported via a pallet.  Although stretch wrapping a pallet seems quite straightforward; you could say there is a certain art to this.  This blog aims to give you some simple tips to make sure you don’t damage transported products due to unsuccessful stretch wrapping.

The Right Size: The first step is to make sure you have the right size pallet to accommodate the products your wish to wrap.  The best size is one that is not larger than the products placed on top as otherwise the plastic may tear on the sharp pallet corners; yet the pallet has to completely cover the base area of the products you want wrapped or otherwise you may have product damage at the end.
Compact Tightly: The products need to be compacted together onto the pallet as closely as possible in order to prevent mo…

Logo Branded Packaging Tape

Image
The first impression is always the most important. One way to make a good impression is with custom printed tape.  When your customer receives your packages in the mail are they excited to finally see it? Or do they mistake it for junk mail?


Don’t let your customers get frustrated with overdone wrapping, excess plastic or paper ads. You want your product to look appealing and accessible, and you want your main message to be loud and clear.
If you want your customer to love the product, you need to think about packaging first.
Branding:

With Quick Pak custom printed tape, your company can create a safe, simple vessel for their product with a loud and clear message. It’s a good way to easily add your logo and contact information in another place.
Practical Applications:

Printed Packaging and Shipping Tape

Image
Printed tape is perfect for highlighting company names, company logos, or products from the time a package leaves your facility until it reaches the consumer.


Printed tapes can instantly identify cartons requiring special handling or storage. Messages aid the consumer and safeguard merchandise during transit.
Some printed shipping tape cannot be broken or released without detection. Evidence of tampering alerts the consignee to reject merchandise with a broken seal. Pilfer-proof and Red Alert tapes are you first line of defense against tampering.  Printed shipping tapes have several advantages that can increase your visibility, advertise and most importantly increase your profits.
Benefits of Using Printed Packing Tape:
The main reason businesses commonly used printed adhesive tape, is in order to market their product. 
The fact is that it makes your label more visible, and for people in the packaging business, it should  be a large part of the marketing plan. It will add much more v…

Why Use Custom Size Corrugated Boxes

Image
Stock-sized boxes are fine if you’re a private individual mailing a textbook you sold on eBay to another private individual. They are fine if you’re moving into a new apartment and you need a convenient way to transport your record collection.


Custom Cardboard Shipping Box - But if you run a business and you ship your products on a regular basis, stock-sized boxes are less than ideal.
If you run a business, custom shipping boxes are much better. For one thing, you’ll save on packaging. By ordering custom-sized boxes, you can ensure that you’re not wasting box space or transport space. Whether you deliver your product yourself or have someone deliver it for you, wasted space in a shipping truck or on a bicyclist’s back is a problem you don’t want. And with custom shipping box sizes and dimensions, you can order some to fit the size of one small shipment as well as the size of bulk shipments. Well-planned custom-sized boxes can save your company loads of money over time because of this…

The Right Shipping Boxes For the Right Products.


Yes!  Quick Pak Inc can help your company get the right message to come with the right product. We offer a variety of shapes and sizes of custom cardboard shipping boxes, and we can place your company’s branding and colors on the outside.
If, for example, you need to ship something relatively flat (such as a book), we offer a one-panel folder (OPF) style. You fold the flap over and tape or glue it shut, and suddenly you have packaging that stacks well and can also be carried conveniently under your arm.
For items slightly less flat, we can provide a tray and cover style of shipping box. This kind of box works best with lightweight items such as clothing or marshmallows. Typically your customer will open it from the top, and there’s plenty of space on the top to present an emotional and dynamic printed design, so be sure to really make the most of that opportunity!
For bigger and heavier items, we can create full-overlap containers (FOL…

Stretch Film and Plastic Resin Pricing for Sept / Oct 2016

Image
The increase: (Sept 23rd orders placed - 6% - really .05/lb).  Surprising but gaining a lot of momentum, going to happen is the popular thought.

Resin guys putting another increase out there in October.  The popular belief is that stretch pricing will not lower (or be lower) prior to end of 2016.
Just FYI If you plan to do so - I would get orders in earlier next week and stay away from orders placed close to Sept 23rd increase date,  not sure if things will tighten up or not.
Our LEAD TIMES are pushing out with escalating order rate to the 2-3 week level for stock. Inteplast Group - AmTopp Stretch Film More information here: www.quickpakinc.com
