As innovators in the packaging industry, at Kentucky Paper Box, we specialize in maximizing our manufacturing capabilities to increase the value we can offer our customers.

Our team of industry professionals, possess years of cross functional experience, with a deep understanding of the intricacies of packaging manufacturing processes. The expertise of our staff, combined with some of the most advanced equipment available, is a resource that few of our competitors can match, and one that allowed us to successfully produce the project highlighted here.

This rigid clamshell package was designed for a wine and spirits application, and includes a number of value-added features throughout the design. The design calls for dimensions of 12” x 8-1/2” x 4”, and a 4-1/16” spine, all composed of .060 lined chipboard. The exterior wrap is printed four color process, with velvet soft touch film lamination. The inside liner is also printed in four color process, but includes a dull aqueous coating.

On the surface these seem like standard specifications, but applying these design elements represents many value added processes that would typically increase costs significantly if produced elsewhere. In addition, the combination of processes, dimensions, and tight tolerances were beyond what our equipment was designed to accommodate. However, one of the most impressive points of this project was our ability to go beyond our equipment process thresholds, while still delivering world class quality.

Going above and beyond to service our customers is what drove one of our long-term clients to refer this customer to us. The customer was very pleased with the result. Not only did they take delivery of all 10,000 finished pieces in just four weeks, but they also recognized the inherent value and extra work that went into this project.
