Frequently Asked Questions
What makes ePac different from traditional flex pack converters?
ePac is focused on solely on the short to medium length run, quick turnaround flexible packaging business. What differentiates ePac is our digital technology platform, and the service model it enables – low minimum orders, 10-day turnaround, and no plate fees.
How will the customer experience be different with ePac?
ePac is the first flexible packaging company designed from the ground up to simplify the flexible packaging experience. If you’re not sure what type of packaging you need, our experts will recommend a size and structure specific for your product. If you already have a specification in mind, let us know and we’ll work with it. Further, ePac customers find the ability to order to demand, thereby reducing costly inventory and obsolescence, a real game changer, especially for small and medium size businesses.
Why should I care if a digital printing process is used rather than conventional printing processes?
Digital eliminates many steps in the conventional printing process, making it faster and more efficient. True high definition graphics quality exceeds that of conventional printing methods, is capable of matching existing product lines, and registers perfectly for every image printed. Variable data and graphics provide the ability to customize packaging to meet the needs of select target markets.
Is digital printing less expensive than conventional?
Digital eliminates the need for investment in plates and cylinders, reduces waste and eliminates inventory. It produces short runs more economically than conventional printing processes, and in cases where variable data and multiple SKUs are involved, or fast turnaround is needed, medium run length jobs are competitively priced.
Why do brand marketers need to know about ePac?
ePac, and the digital printing platform we are based on, presents a multitude of new options for brand marketers and companies of all sizes. Rapidly bring new products to market, make changes on the fly, end of life old products, target certain demographics for promotions, apply new eye-catching graphics, link the package to an on-line experience – are all possible with ePac.
