PIA/GATFPress Explores Trends in Package Printing
Tuesday, January 15, 2008
Press release from the issuing companyPittsburgh, PA, January 14, 2008 - PIA/GATFPress is pleased to announce the release of the downloadable PDF report Trends in Package Printing, by Joel J. Shulman and Nelson R. Eldred. This 100-page study breaks down various areas of package printing and examines how printers are producing their products, as well as the market divers, current trends in the field, raw material considerations, and more.
Package printers may not be under the same strict time demands as publishers of newspapers, advertisements, and periodicals, but they must produce high-quality containers for the demanding and discerning merchants attempting to promote the materials within. For many potential customers, the first indicator of the inherent quality of a given product is the package in which it is contained. Given the demand for such high quality and the diverse packaging methods in the market today, it is more important than ever to know who's doing what in what fields.
Without a doubt, package printing is a diverse industry, and Trends in Package Printing leaves no stone unturned. Topics include:
- Market dynamics
- Label printing
- Corrugated containers
- Folding cartons
- Flexible packaging
- Metal cans and other packaging products
- World packaging developments
- Globalization and popular dynamics
- Corporate changes (acquisitions and mergers)
- Color considerations
- Inks and coatings
- Digital printing
- Security considerations
- Social, environmental, and government concerns
- Management science and quality control
