we've been there
At OlymPak, we view ourselves as a solutions provider. To us, this means going above simply order taking, converting and shipping. We use our art and design departments to create packaging that separates our customers products from their competition. We spend time in R&D finding inks, substrates, and designs that improve production for our clients. We do this because it is simply part of our culture.
Please take a minute to read just a sampling of the solutions we have provided for some of our customers.
Super Bowl Cover
Industry: Sports Promotion
Case: each year there is a collectors edition printed for the cover of the Super Bowl program. Printing this cover requires a company that can be trusted with a unique substrate and a one day turn time.
Solution: for the past 9 years, OlymPak has been trusted to produce this piece in record time. The substrate used is laser etched and is quiet expensive. We are allotted a specific amount of material which leaves no room for error. The second the two teams are identified on Sunday pre-press goes into action. At 6:00AM Monday morning the document goes on press and is out the door that afternoon.
Glowing Effect Carton
Industry: Sporting Goods / Retail
Case: Pure Fishing, one of our key customers was introducing a new fishing line that glows in the water at night. They called us in to help design a glow in the dark package. We informed them that glow in the dark inks would not work as they are expensive and don't show well in the well lit retail store environment.
Solution: our art staff applied a graphic approach using laser etched foil with UV inks. The end result is a unique package that appears to glow on the shelf setting it apart from the competition. Pure Fishing is seeing great success with this concept and we are honored to be part of the product development.
Case: a long time customer of ours that produces toilet seat covers called us to help them with a problem they were having. Their seat covers are heat treated and sealed. The material they were using for their job was cracking during this process creating larger than desired amounts of waste.
Solution: through internal research, we discovered that the reason the printed material was cracking was due the inks being used. Through our R&D process, we tested many inks and eventually settled on an ink that reduced waste by 80%. Our efforts have created a strong relationship between the two companies.
2 Slice Pizza
Industry: Convenience Store / Food
Case: Pilot / Flying J, a national truck stop giant, approached us to design a carton that could conveniently hold 2 pizza slices. Previous to speaking with us, they were placing the pizza in a Styrofoam container lined with foil.
Solution: our design team developed a machine formed, triangular package that was nested, easy to open and close, and offered high quality graphics. We also designed an E-flute insert to separate the slices with a special recycled stock coated with a grease barrier. Along with design, we worked with one of our logistics providers to reduce shipping costs and create a situation that was optimal for our customer.
Industry: Medical / Nutraceutical
Case: one of our customers packages many of their vitamin supplements in a special stretch-pak card. This card is sealed using a 'radio frequency' sealing process. The previous card supplier was using conventional inks that covered the product in a spray powder which interfered with the sealing process.
Solution: we moved the cards to an inter-decked UV press that dries each color as it passes the cylinder. This process does not require a spray powder. The end results was a product that does not interfere with the sealing process resulting in a large reduction of waste.
