Inland Packaging, a privately-owned label and packaging printer, presented today at PACK EXPO Connects an array of strategies to overcome the effects of the pandemic on material types and labeling. Canned foods and beverages, along with plastic-packed sanitation products were strongly impacted, resulting in shortages. purchased online.

Strategies adjustments around labeling to mitigate pandemic trends include:

  • Streamlining main products and downsize product portfolio for the time being
  • Replacing direct print labels with pressure sensitive and shrink sleeve labels as cost effective options to help products not go to waste
  • Digital printing for smaller turnaround times
  • Using flexible packaging single serve packages for products that are traditionally in rigid containers
  • Relying on suppliers to offer up innovative solutions to pandemic-related challenges
