How does it work?

Simply put: Tin / Aluminum alloy coated plates go in one end and perfectly laser etched impressions for each colour come out the other. Each plate goes on to be applied to drums for offset printing. It makes the entire process seem so simple. But under the hood, a complex symphony of stages bring it all together. It’s actually really interesting to watch it work.

Check out this custom wall diagram

The best way for everyone to understand it’s functionality was to illustrate it. So the Proprint Design and Production Teams did just that. *(4′ x 16′)

Detergent Packaging with tear off scoop

Here’s the scoop!


When it comes to designing responsible retail packaging, you have to consider the environmental impact and usability. It’s just the right way to do it.

tear-off-scoop-washing-detergent-packaging-retail-point-of-sale-print-production-blog

Smart and Simple.


Designers Yang Guo, Qiaoge Yang & Wenju Wu considered the contents and came up with a design that has really inspired some thinking here in the Proprint Creative Studio today.
I’m not entirely certain that consumers would forfeit their plastic scoops over night in favour of this design. But I do believe that there is a segment of the market that would consider trying it.

Is this the future of packaging?


Contained utensils in the packaging is so in step the packaging trends that we have observed and set. I wonder what other versions of this philosophy will show up on the shelves.
