Packaging appeals to all the senses. The sensory experience associated with packaging is a key factor in whether consumers perceive it as being worthwhile. That's why Südpack'spresentation at this year's Interpack is all about Experiencing packaging through the senses and gives visitors the opportunity to discover aspects of their products that may not be immediately apparent to the eye. "We have long taken an integrated approach in developing our film solutions. Packaging only really makes sense if it creates the best possible product experience for the consumer," explains Südpack Managing Partner Johannes Remmele. "How does a film feel to the touch? Does it offer a clear view of the product inside? What does it sound like when it's opened? The added benefit of opening aids and resealing systems only really becomes clear when you hold the packaging in your hands and actually try it out. This is precisely what we are inviting visitors at our stand to do. We want them to experience our solutions with all of their senses - and discover the deeper sense."

Outstanding film printing - because the first impression counts

The first, visual impression is often the decisive factor in purchasing decisions. That's why Südpack offers its customers a wide range of design options, especially in terms of film printing. A state-of-the-art digital printing process completes the current portfolio of gravure and flexographic printing. The three techniques complement one another with different advantages and potential applications. Gravure printing is suitable for very large print volumes. The film can be printed on both sides in up to twelve colors, including pattern-matching and inline lamination. Fast, high-quality flexographic printing allows for up to eleven colors. Full-surface or partial matt/gloss effects can be achieved in both gravure printing and flexographic printing. Digital printing is ideal for smaller film batches, for instance for trade fairs, promotional merchandise or product launches. Film packaging can be printed with individual texts or images and even customized, with optimum print quality and short delivery times. "This extensive portfolio and decades of printing expertise give our customers a wealth of options," says Johannes Remmele. "We provide comprehensive guidance and support to make it easy to design packaging in a personalized, meaningful way."

Online shop for digital printing makes things easy

This service is complemented by a separate online shop for digital printing, which will be presented for the first time to a wide audience at Interpack. The shop makes it easier for manufacturers of food or technical devices to select and print small batches of film for a specific product. A special configurator recommends films to suit the customer's products. In the next step, the printing information is uploaded and the complete film solution is put together. Customers still enjoy the full support of the Südpack experts when ordering online. Südpack carefully reviews the film before it is printed. "We are the first film manufacturer in Europe to offer customers the option of ordering customized printed films quickly and easily online", explains Johannes Remmele. "Customers can configure and order films from a desktop computer or on the go via tabletor smartphone. We also offer flexible express deliveries to meet tight deadlines. We see this as a truly future-focused, meaningful approach."
