AccuFlex Packaging, a subsidiary of Acculink, based in Greenville, North Carolina, has become the first flexible packaging printer to receive Color-Logic certification.

Commenting on the event, Color-Logic director of sales and marketing Mark Geeves said: “Licensed Color-Logic printers around the world provide brands with the capability to differentiate their printed packaging, labels, direct mail, point-of-purchase materials, signage, and now their flexible packaging.”

AccuFlex Packaging recently completed Color-Logic test forms printed with their new HP Indigo 20000 for flexible packaging. Acculink was one of the first Color-Logic certified printers, the first US digital printer to offer Scodix digital finishing, and is now the first Color-Logic certified flexible packaging printer.

“Tom O’Brien, the Acculink owner, has always been on the cutting edge of digital printing.  Two years ago, he approached us with his plans to enter the flexible packaging market and use Color-Logic to differentiate his printing for target brands. The test forms submitted by AccuFlex Packaging demonstrates the company can produce pouches and other flexible materials that really stand out from the competition. AccuFlex Packaging knows that metallics enhance the perceived value the product inside,” Geeves continued.

Tim Mages, AccuFlex Packaging President, also commented: “The eye-popping graphics that the HP Indigo press prints, together with the unique Color-Logic software and our coating/laminating, slitting and finishing equipment, put AccuFlex Packaging on the cutting edge of flexible packaging today.”

Color-Logic develops color communication systems and software tool sets for a variety of special effect printing applications.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
