Join Claudia McCue for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Print Production: Packaging.
In wrapping up I'd like to thank the folks at Anderson/LA.…They were very gracious.…They let us come into their printing plant and film their facility.…Film their printing presses in action.…And they also donated some great examples of packaging for us to use in this course.…This is a wonderful piece.…It's actually a promotional piece that they did to showcase what they can do.…It's a little hard to get an idea of scale.…This is about a foot and a half tall.…It's like a giant book of matches and…you can see that it's foil stamped and embossed.…
And it's a great design to begin with and then when you…open it up it's die-cut to showcase the fact that they do die-cutting.…And it's actually used as a carrier for promotional materials.…So that might give you some ideas that packages aren't…just for products, they can also be great promotional pieces.…And if you're interested in learning more about packaging there are some…organizations that can serve as great resources…for you, especially the Sustainable Packaging Coalition.…
