Presentation is the means by which brands make their products stand out from competition. Since there is no way by which consumers can assess the quality of what lies inside the box, as a natural instinct they add to the cart anything that strikes the eye first. Many brands still miss the vital role on figuring out how the pack will be portrayed at the shelf. This might be due to lack of good ideas, or simply because of time constraints. Whatever may be the issue, finishing of a product is best left to experts in that domain.

Subsequently, postpress finishing is no longer a means to simply cut the carton out of a substrate. Rather, it is increasingly seen as a source of better business opportunities in the growing market of packaging and product embellishment. Exemplifying this view is Rahul
Luthra, owner at Artize Die Makers, a Delhi-based company that supplies wooden die cut to leading convertors in North India. He says, “The role of postpress finishing and converting has improved in recent years, thanks to automated technology. It has brought new approaches to reducing set-up times, minimizing waste, and increasing throughput without sacrificing the quality. Changing market demands and high volumes has encouraged the convertors to see the postpress equipment and tools as an opportunity to add value in the same old packs.”

According to him, presentation and good quality are the most important parameters for mono cartons to give off a good first impression. We at Artize help print service providers by supplying a comprehensive range of laser dies. Our plant is equipped with laser, benders and CNC router that help us continue our study on new solutions, which are not only practical in terms of productivity but also aesthetically attractive.

At IndiaCorr Expo, Artize displayed a range of products from its portfolio, such as male female dies, Braille embossing dies, pre-rubberized dies, and a few others. Pertinex with Penta Creasing die cut and textured leafing blocks were the main products displayed at the stall. Pertinex is a counter plate to have a premium quality on mono cartons while textured leafing blocks give a special effect and add texture to the surface of packs. “Apart from business, IndiaCorr Expo serves as a common platform to meet professionals from the  postpress industry and showcase our products to the visitors,” Luthra concludes.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
