Coding & Marking Systems for Cardboard & Carton

The simplest and least expensive way to print on cartons & cardboard.

Accurate and legible/scannable markings are necessary and required on all levels of the product packaging spectrum. In many instances, these packaging types consist of cartons (such as milk cartons) or cardboard boxes.
Starting with the primary or retail packaging, on which important information (such as product expiration dates or batch numbers) needs to be displayed. Or, secondary packaging, which needs to exhibit your brand and/or be marked with customer required markings, and/or specific information and symbols. And finally, the tertiary packaging needs to show shipping information, in addition to identification codes & symbols, bar codes, and electronic data interchange markings.
If any of this information contains errors or is non-compliant with customer requirements, it could result in unwanted consequences such as the rejection of the shipment or payment delays.
The simplest, quickest, least expensive, and error-free option is to print logos, barcodes, product information, and variable data directly on to cartons and cardboard boxes. This method  has several proven advantages:
  1. It eliminates the need to have an inventory of labels or pre-printed box on hand
  2. It provides the flexibility to effortlessly implement any updated coding & marking requirements
  3. It prevents errors
  4. It is less costly
  5. It makes it easier to comply with customer coding & marking requirements


One question that we sometimes encounter is about print quality on cardboard. This material is porous, absorbent, and uneven. A recipe for potentially diminished print quality.
We have performed a number of comparisons, both in our lab and at customer sites. And the result? Although print resolution of industrial inkjet printing is lower than print & apply labels, functionality is not affected. Barcodes and QR codes are accurately and reliably scanned but at substantially lower costs.

No maintenance. No downtime. No errors.
