Fulfillment is the complete process of receiving, processing, packing, picking, and shipping orders to customers.. While larger companies usually have the capacity to handle fulfillment themselves, most Ecommerce businesses and start ups often turn that aspect of the business over to companies that specialize in fulfillment.

JIT Solutions

JIT is an inventory management strategy that syncs raw material orders from vendors, such as 5 Star Packaging, with a customer’s production schedule. This strategy reduces material costs by allowing customers to order in bulk, while only receiving the materials as needed. This strategy not only opens up warehouse space, but it also reduces waste caused by unwanted inventory left over from a production run. However, this strategy does require accurate long term forecasts of material needs; as there are limits to how long inventory can be held on a vendors warehouse floor (Usually ~60 days).

Computer-Aided Design

In the world of packaging, computer-aided design (CAD) refers to the use of computers in the creation, modification, or production of a package’s design. CAD software is used to increase the productivity of the designer, improve the quality of design, improve design documentation, and to create a manufacturing database.

Digital Printing/Mockups

Digital printing technology is quickly becoming the most popular option for customers who are looking to launch a new product. This method of printing also allows smaller companies to establish their brand and tell their story through attractive and innovative packaging, without the risk of placing a large volume order. Digital printing is also a popular way for established companies to test the waters with a new product to see how it performs without commiting to a large run, or even seasonal promotions. Digitally printed mockups can also be valuable tools for marketing, trade shows, or sales meetings.

The main advantage of digital printing is that it is the quickest and most cost effective way to get a new product to market, since there’s no need for costly printing plates or cutting dies. All of our short production runs and mockups are produced on state-of-the-art digital flatbed printers, with high quality Kemi board; which allows for bolder and colors and hi-res graphics. Our team of in-house graphic artists and structural designers can create custom printed mock-ups for all types of products, so feel free to reach out to us and see what we can create for you.
