Folding Carton - Digital Printing Packages are printed on a HP Indigo 30000 digital printer, a 29-inch-format, sheet-fed press for folding cartons and ideal for short runs.

Sept. 13, 2016 - Caraustar Consumer Packaging Group has introduced Rapid-Pack.com, a new ecommerce site that is targeted to businesses that want to order folding cartons on-line, pay with a credit card and have their order shipped within five business days of final proof approval.

Packages are printed on a HP Indigo 30000 digital printer, a 29-inch-format, sheet-fed press for folding cartons and ideal for short runs. Digital prints are of the highest quality. They match or exceed offset, allowing them to be used interchangeably. They can use up to 7 ink stations on press and provide the widest digital color gamut to fulfill strict brand color requirements with up to 97% of PANTONE colors.

Packaging customers have a choice of 44 popular stock folding cartons to choose from– pillow packages to seasonal tree and heart packages. These can be ordered in a high or low gloss finish and printed on 18 or 24 point paperboard. Quantities are available between 50 and 15,000. Blank samples and printed samples are also available and ideal for testing creative packaging design.

"Whether you are a small business owner who wants a fast and easy folding carton option, a business that needs 10,000 folding cartons quickly during peak season or a CPG production designer that wants to sample many new designs, Rapid-Pack.com is perfect for you," said Dean Dietrich, VP and GM of Caraustar Consumer Packaging Group.

"This is also ideal for businesses that do not want to carry excess inventory or businesses that have to change their packaging quickly for regulatory reasons," added Dietrich.
