benefits of digitally printed, custom candy packages

The confection and chocolate industries are no stranger to the use of bold, vibrant colors and designs. Digital printing on flexible packaging makes it possible for your brand to achieve photo-quality graphics with high-definition colors that will catch your customers’ eyes. Digital printing also makes it possible for brands to print multiple SKUs on each run so that you can test new products and seasonal flavors at a much lower cost compared to conventional printing. ePac offers low minimum short and medium-run orders, with no use of printing plates and associated fees or setup costs, which will help you reduce excess inventory and obsolescence while maintaining cash flow.
