Gröbenzell, 2 April 2013
As part of the Value Added Packaging Initiative, the members and partners of the PrintCity Alliance are launching a new project entitled "Real Life Sample".

The successful presentation of the VAPack sample folder at drupa 2012 is now being followed by a continuation focusing on new production technologies

Gravure, screen and flexo printing, conventional (also food approved) and UV, digital printing, hot and cold foil application, embossing and debossing, Iriodine and numerous coating versions are the parameters of the project. 

"The aim of this project is to give a realistic demonstration of how high-end finishing, creative shapes and forms, design and packing technology interact in the packaging sector and make a decisive contribution to brand-building, positioning and value added.An extremely flexible production system, an innovative and visually very striking folding-carton design, and collaboration with a leading folding-carton manufacturer like AR Carton, open up new worlds.” 

3D visualisation gives a first impression of the packaging: The project will be presented for the first time and intensively discussed in interactive break-out sessions on the occasion of the Packaging Inspiration Forum in Düsseldorf on 24 and 25 April 2013. The Forum is aimed at Designers (including designers who do not yet have a foot in the growing packaging industry), media producers, brand owners, printers and finishers
