ALPHARETTA, GA, Jan. 27, 2016 (Press Release) -Neenah Packaging today announces another significant expansion to its Neenah® Folding Board portfolio — a broad range of papers designed for use in a variety of premium packaging applications including boxes, hangtags, gift card carriers and luxe folders. The line now features 58 items including 24 new colors, 13 new finishes and 3 new digital-ready items, and is showcased in the new Neenah Folding Board swatchbook.
This expanded offering follows on the heels of Neenah’s recent acquisition of FiberMark. “This new line represents the coming together of these two businesses, now with the ability to offer both coated and uncoated options, in eye-catching new finishes and trending colors,” said Diane L Marchionna, Brand Manager, Neenah Packaging.
The enhanced lineup includes a luxurious palette of richly charged iridescent materials in jewel-tone hues, striking metallics with distinctive embossing patterns, and elegantly understated matte finishes ideally suited for high-end packaging. A complete list of new items is available here: http://www.neenahpackaging.com/~/media/PackagingSolutions/Spec%20Sheets/...
The items featured in the swatchbook were intended as an idea-generator for customers, a way to understand Neenah’s capabilities, and spark the imagination.. “In reality, customers are often looking for something other than what they find in swatchbooks, and that’s one of the great values that Neenah provides…we can reproduce virtually any color, any texture, in any size or weight. Our standard line is simply a starting point for customers. Ultimately, our goal is to help brands create their own unique packaging solutions,” said Marchionna.
New Folding Board Sheeter Roll Program
In conjunction with this brand expansion, Neenah Packaging also announces a new Sheeter Roll Program. This service affords customers quick turnarounds for special sheet sizes of Neenah’s four most popular 18 pt. premium vellum folding boards including Bright White, 100 PC White, Kraft, and Deep Black, each available for shipment four days after receipt of order, at a minimum order quantity of 2,000#.
Custom Packaging Capabilities
For brands seeking to differentiate themselves in an increasingly crowed retail space, Neenah offers custom solutions for color, texture, weight, and performance. “If we don’t have something ready-made, we’ll work with the customer to custom-design a solution that satisfies their specific needs,” said Marchionna.
Neenah Folding Boards are thoughtfully engineered and tested to meet the unique demands of the packaging industry, delivering consistent converting performance and printability, along with strength and durability. All stocked boards offer dyed-through color.
“With the blending of FiberMark with Neenah, there are limitless possibilities to transform your packaging into sensory experience — all from a single source,” said Marchionna.
