Heidelberg’s Prinect Package Designer is the solution to all your packaging needs.
As stated by Mr. Nandeesha Mahadevaswamy, Product Manager – Post Press Packaging Solutions, Heidelberg India Pvt. Ltd., in an interview during the International Exhibition on Printing and Allied Machinery Industries (PAMEX), New Delhi, “Packaging is the future!” How? He further explained, “When people go to the supermarkets, they look at the print, they look at the packaging, then they pick up the product. I think you would not like to pick up a damaged pack and take it home. Either you will ask for a discount or you will not buy it… You can get data downloaded, or a song downloaded, but you can’t download a pizza through the Internet. Food products, pharmaceutical products need to be packaged. So packaging is the future.”
Convincing enough. But are the age-old packaging trends going to fulfill your needs as a print media service provider, as well as your customers’ needs? The answer is… No!
