UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES WITH SPECIAL-EFFECT INKS

Special effects have become increasingly important over the years – not only adding sophistication to a printed design but also providing protection against counterfeiting.

Increasing competition for consumer awareness at point-of-sale is leading brand owners to develop ever-more interesting and attractive packaging. The use of attention-grabbing inks and varnishes – for instance, metallic or mirror-effects – is just one way in which products can be compelled to attract attention on the supermarket shelf. But that's only one part of an increasingly-complex ink-related equation that also includes the latest curing technologies and the burning issue of low-migration inks.

Such inter-related topics fall under the spotlight in PPM's April issue.

PRINTING PLATES – WHAT'S NEW?

Despite pessimistic predictions, print is not going to disappear anytime soon, and one manifestation of this is continuous printing plate development, across all technologies.

We're seeing constant advances with flexographic and lithographic plates, and platemaking equipment. There's also growing demand for waterless plates, the main reason being waste reduction – a hot topic.

The latest printing plate advances are under the spotlight in our April issue.

MASTERBATCH AND PIGMENTS: DEVELOPMENTS
AND TRENDS

Global market conditions for the masterbatch and pigments industry are challenging, resulting in raw material suppliers finding new and better ways to add value to their products, and converting machinery suppliers improving performance and reducing costs.

In the April issue, PPM reviews pioneering developments in plastics packaging set to change the way we see colour in the future and how Pantone’s Colour of the Year, Ultra Violet (18-3838), is likely to influence design trends.

PPM’s editors would like to hear about your company's ground-breaking products, services and collaborative design projects, and how they’re helping your customers to gain market share.

GROWTH SPURT FOR SPOUTED POUCHES

A leader in packaging innovation and one of the fastest growing segments of the packaging industry, flexible packaging is a convenient yet attractive. Within this sector, spouted pouches – flexible alternatives to bottles, cans and jars for liquids – are becoming increasingly popular.

If your company provides essential advice, products and services in this field, PPM’s editors want to hear from you.
