3C! Packaging, a pharmaceutical packaging company specializing in the design and manufacture of custom folding cartons, printed literature, inserts/outserts, labels/foils and unit-dose applications, has received full certification of its offset printing operations to become a Walgreens Certified Print Packaging Supplier.
Walgreens operates more than 8,200 pharmacies nationwide, offering pharmacy products, OTC health and wellness and consumer goods. With its new approval to execute the company’s branded packaging, 3C! Packaging will work with designated product suppliers to produce a range of packaging, including custom folding cartons, printed literature, inserts/outserts, labels/foils and unit dose applications for Walgreens.
To earn the quality assurance seal, 3C! Packaging passed a stringent program administered by Graphic Measures International (GMI), an organization that monitors and validates suppliers’ required process controls and ability to deliver consistent results for its vendors. The designation enables Walgreens’ private-label suppliers to use 3C! Packaging for printed packaging of Walgreens private-branded products.
GMI granted the certification following a comprehensive audit of 3C!’s packaging operations. Several categories were tested for compliance, including prepress, plating, press, post-press operations, quality control, and training. 3C! demonstrated full compliance and performance across all analyzed categories.
