With little-to-no sacrifice of precious packaging real estate, Consumer Product Companies (CPC’s) are learning about consumer purchasing patterns, demographics, and lifestyles in ways never possible before. The benefit of these trends is not only to the CPC as these electronic-enabled solutions can provide consumers with additional information about products, entertainment, and even safety—a growing concern in pharmaceuticals and food products. What does the converter need to know about electronic-enabled packaging? The implications to the printer are clear: as CPC’s will always push for more consistent color and ability to reproduce fine images, the quality of all printing processes is as important as ever. In a printing environment where business models are changing to capitalize on new markets, even non-package printers can take advantage of learning about these trends. With package printing on the rise globally, electronic enabled packaging can assist CPC’s in gaining a competitive advantage and consumer insight, thus targeting consumers in a whole new way.
