Colad’s Custom Product Packaging

If you’ve created custom packaging with Colad before, you know that our designers start with the product, and design the packaging to fit perfectly around it.  This custom packaging, designed for Livewire TS automobile accessories, was created with a custom die cut section to allow for charging right through the box.  Not only is this box attractive with the matte black finish and spot UV accents, but it increases the overall value of the product by making it ready to use the second it comes off of the shelf.

Take a look at a few of the prototypes that were created before the Colad team arrived on this perfect design:

Riders, Volunteers and Printers!

Colad was proud to help sponsor the 17th Annual Ride For Roswell.

What a turn out this year- more than 8,000 participants were at University at Buffalo Campus on Saturday, bright and early, and ready to ride! Ride for Roswell is an amazing cause with a great following here in Western New York, and Colad is lucky to be a part of it all.  Our Director of Operations has been on the RFR Committee for nearly a decade now, and this was my second year as a volunteer [with many more to come!]

Additionally, Colad donated rear-view mirror hang tags to all staff & volunteers, printed with directions and a map of the grounds on the back side.  Traffic gets pretty heavy during this event [I’m sure you can imagine with the 8,000 riders, 10,000 spectators and another 500+ volunteers…] so having these color coded tags is essential in making sure the right people are always exactly where they need to be.  These hang tags were printed with variable data to feature different instructions and parking destinations based on the role of the volunteer.  Just another application where Dynamic Digital Packaging from Colad is the perfect solution!

From “THANK YOU to the thousands of supporters, riders, volunteers, cancer survivors and patients who helped give cancer research and patient support programs at Roswell Park a major boost at the 17th annual Ride For Roswell. Thanks to your efforts, $3.7 million was raised to help accelerate the most promising research studies and compassionate quality of life programs at Roswell Park”.

Toshiba’s #NoPrintDay: Your Thoughts?

Over the past few weeks I have been watching the saga that is Toshiba’s National No-Print Day Campaign.  As a custom packaging company, printing and paper is what we do.  As an eco-friendly company, certified by SFI & SFI, as well as an EPA Green Power Partner- sustainable printing is all we know.

One day dedicated to #noprint? The idea seems highly ineffective.  Toshiba should have focused their efforts on sustainable printing 365 days a year!

National No Print Day was supposed to catch on like a wildfire, after all, it was branded as a nation-wide movement.  With little facts or statistics for backup, everyone saw through this National No Print Day for what it was, an attempt at a newsworthy marketing campaign instead of a campaign to better the environment.

This is my opinion on the unsuccessful National No-Print Day, what is yours?
