The Magic Behind Foam-In-Bag and Corrugated

In the packing and shipping world, we’ve come a long way since the days of Styrofoam peanuts. However, with the fate of the planet hanging in the balance, there’s been a push for cost-effective, and more biodegradable materials. As always, space is as much as a concern as eco-friendliness, and so even bubble wrap has its caveats in our industry. Bubble wrap tends to mean larger boxes and larger boxes means higher shipping costs and more fuel usage.

Branding Your Company Through Your Packaging

When we finally get our hands on a newly purchased product, there’s a small child inside each of us dying to tear it open. With the reservation of a responsible adult, we may hold back before doing so, admiring the packaging in front of our eyes. It’s in these transitory moments, between unopened package and product, that a clever company can truly stand out from its competition.

If you’re shipping a product from Montgomery County, PA or nearby areas, we at Markey Paper and Packaging Inc. can infuse your company into your packaging.

Quality of Packaging and Shipping
Startups, as well as companies in nascent markets, should seize any opportunity to distinguish themselves from their competitors. Though it may be overlooked in the grand scheme of product design, your packaging and shipping is your first tangible form of customer support. Inefficiency at this step not only affects how your customers perceive you and your brand; but it results in you paying higher shipping costs, too. By optimizing everything logistic about your product, you will cover all your bases, ensuring a happier customer.

Boxing Your Brand  
Depending on the shape and size of your product, your packaging may be relatively ordinary, or rather noticeable. Whether you have an old-fashioned clock company or a janitorial supply company in Montgomery, PA, or any other part of the state, you should have a box fit and designed just for you. By utilizing color in the folds of your packaging, you stimulate emotion and memory. Coordinating color with typography, and succinct, friendly language will endear you to your customers all the more. Moreover, your packaging should be neat and durable; possibly even folded, glued, and stitched by hand.

Protecting Your Brand
Now that you’ve figured out how your packaging will look, how about the safety of your product itself? With four decades worth of shipping experience, we at Markey Paper and Packaging Inc. absolutely favor Instapak foam over messy packing peanuts. As a material, Instapak foam can be called somewhat magical, quickly expanding to fit any shipping container it’s placed inside. Because Instapak foam is adaptable and affordable, shipping costs can be decreased for you and your customers.

Improve Your Business with Premium Janitorial Products and Packaging Supplies

When you walk into any place of business, the first thing anyone will notice is how clean the space is. Are there crumbs on desks or counters from a lack of durable paper towels and other cleaning supplies? Are the windows smudged with fingerprints or streaked with dust because your janitor is inadequately stocked with the tools he or she needs?

Clients sitting down in an office to discuss investments don’t want to see messy shelves and dirty floors; an unclean environment may reduce their faith in your ability to manage other aspects of business. Don’t lose a valuable customer due to unfit janitorial and packaging products that leave grime behind despite the money you paid; leave it up to a professional industrial packaging distributor with the experienced insight to tell the difference between poor quality supplies and those that can get the job done right the first time.

What is EPS?

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) remains one of the most common fillers for packaging on an industrial scale, because it is a lightweight material that can be manufactured into a multitude of different products. It became popular due to its high performance and ability to be recycled. It is the unfortunate reality that fillers prior to EPS would simply add to the world’s waste without the possibility of reuse.

Lamentably, EPS packaging is an outdated form of disposable packaging that will eventually become solid waste. Despite this material being recyclable, EPS recycling programs vary from one community to the next and may be limited in your area.


What is PakNatural™ Loose Fill?

PakNatural™ loose fill is manufactured by Sealed Air and is available to customers through Markey Paper and Packaging, Inc. PakNatural™ is a non-petro chemical protein based loose fill, which simply means that it is made from non-food renewable materials, so it is both compostable and biodegradable.

This loose fill was designed with the wellbeing of our planet in mind; it is perfect for our customers who are concerned with waste, and want to promote a more desirable environmental image for their business.


Why Does Markey Paper and Packaging, Inc. Promote Switching to PakNatural™ for Loose Fill?

We stand behind this product for a number of reasons, and not just those associated with environmental concerns! PakNatural™ loose fill is comparative to EPS products in performance excellence, efficiency, and cost. Some of the remarkable qualities PakNatural™ possesses for packaging, include:


  • Anti-static properties

Sealed Air’s New Bubble Wrap® IB Now Available Worldwide

  • Inflatable, on-demand packaging can help companies meet rising e-commerce demand
  • Creates right-sized packages that help reduce freight costs, minimize waste
  • Specially designed cushion bubbles help ensure outstanding product protection

CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 17, 2016– Sealed Air Corporation (NYSE: SEE) today announced that its “unpoppable” Bubble Wrap® IB protective packaging solution is now commercially available worldwide.

A new version of the company’s iconic brand, Bubble Wrap IB is an ideal cushion packaging material for companies that want to enhance their e-commerce and supply chain efficiency.  It uses specially designed air channels that transfer shock away from products and provide superior cushioning protection.

“As e-commerce continues to redefine the buying experience for consumers and businesses, companies need solutions like Bubble Wrap IB that can help them expedite – and better protect – the shipment of their products,” said Ken Chrisman, President, Product Care at Sealed Air.

Bubble Wrap IB is shipped flat and inflated on premise and on demand by the customer, using a simple-to-operate machine, the NewAir I.B. Express inflatable cushioning system.  Using the machine, customers can inflate the flat sheets of patented polymeric film, as needed.  Doing so enables them to inflate only what they need, minimizing material usage and the storage space required.

By creating right-sized packages that deliver exceptional protection, Bubble Wrap IB enables companies to generate valuable financial performance and sustainability-related benefits over competitive bubble packaging technologies, including:

  • Better Damage Reduction:  Sealed Air’s Barrier Bubble technology extends cushioning protection for warehousing or long ship cycles, making Bubble Wrap IB unpoppable. In extensive testing, Bubble Wrap IB’s specially designed bubbles delivered 30 percent more protection power than competitive bubble technologies.
  • Better Cube Optimization: Bubble Wrap IB provides superior protection in compact bubble heights and allows customers to reduce material usage. The larger bubbles minimize box size, helping companies reduce freight costs and resource consumption.
  • Better Fulfillment Velocity:  The large bubbles that form Bubble Wrap IB provide maximum protection, enabling companies to minimize the number of packaging layers they need and spend less time wrapping products. This helps companies to gets packages out the door more efficiently.
  • Better Customer Experience: Creating right-sized packages that offer exceptional protection, Bubble Wrap IB enables companies to develop consumer-friendly packaging options, helping to enhance brand reputation and customer experience.

“Now, with Bubble Wrap IB’s self-serve protective packaging, companies around the world can create their packaging on site according to their needs, helping them to reduce freight costs, simplify order fulfillment and optimize the efficiency of their shipping facilities,” Chrisman said.

Bubble Wrap IB can also drastically reduce the impact of freight costs for customers and carries a significantly smaller carbon footprint.

By inflating at the point of use, Bubble Wrap IB can reduce the number of trucks required to supply a customer’s operation by nearly 97 percent. In fact, one truck-load of uninflated Bubble Wrap IB, requiring two man hours, is the equivalent of 36 truck-loads of standard bubble cushioning and 72 man hours.
