Packaging Innovations

Incremental and radical solutions are continuously developed by building relationships with customers, establishing open communication and collaborating throughout the production process. That is how Zumbiel moves from ideation to innovation.

You’ll work with us to give us the vision for what you envision the final product to be. From there, we transform the idea from sketches to prototypes. Next, substrates and presses are selected, dies cut, and the package undergoes the proofing/review process. Then it proceeds through the manufacturing process until it ultimately lands on store shelves.

That’s not the only way innovation happens here. In addition to crafting unique cartons, we innovate through smart paperboard options, features of functionality, improvements to current designs and supply chain efficiency. The result is innovation that builds awareness and shelf appeal and controls costs, all while connecting with your target consumer.

Every step of the way, no matter what concerns you may have, we can handle all the details to get you the product you want.

Tran-Z-print

Zumbiel’s patented Tran-Z-Print sublimation ink process makes promos, licensed property tie-ins and incentives easy by placing them right on the package.

Tran-Z-Print also provides significant savings on the costs of promo inserts, including: additional labor, purchasing and missed drop line interruptions.

  • Value-priced alternative to drop-in premiums
  • No special handling or labor required
  • Increased promotional longevity
  • Eliminates fill compliance shortages
