Designing and developing healthcare products are a complex and intricate task and must be the main focus of the manufacturer. Therefore, when forming a team to rely on for secondary components—such as folding carton packaging—companies need to ensure they partner with an experienced, qualified company. Healthcare product manufacturers need packaging that serves an array of functions from product protection to enhancement of a product’s visibility and the company’s corporate image.

It is critical to create packaging that meets the specific needs of healthcare products, this includes meeting time constraints, innovation and value added services. Following are standards that can assist healthcare product manufacturers in finding the right company to partner with to fulfill their folding carton requirements.

  • The folding carton manufacturer should demonstrate an expertise in die cutting, machine filled cartons, covert and overt security features including security inks, color shifting inks, and micro print.
  • Choose a folding carton manufacturer that will partner with you during each step of the packaging design and manufacturing process, as well as form, function and machineability.
