How Holiday Packaging Can Effect Production
This time of the year, familiar products start popping up in unfamiliar, though enticing, packages. From ghosts and goblins on the box to pumpkin shaped containers, right on through to turkeys, cornucopias, snow, lights, gift wrapping and more, many businesses will release their products in themed packaging. In some cases, this themed packaging can have an effect on the normal course of production, leading to additions or extra runs...Read more

Child Resistant Packaging and Capping Machines
Take a look at these products: Aspirin, furniture polish, mouthwash, cosmetics with low-viscosity hydrocarbons. It might be difficult for many people to quickly figure out how these products are connected, but they are connected. Each of the products above, along with many others, require "special packaging" under current law.
Specifically, this type of packaging "...is designed or constructed to be significantly difficult for children under five years of age to open or obtain a toxic or harmful amount of the substance contained therein within a reasonable time and not difficult for normal adults to use properly, but does not mean packaging which all such children cannot open or obtain a toxic or harmful amount within a reasonable time." Many times, though not always, this special packaging requirement is met by using a screw on type cap that many people refer to as a child-resistant cap, or CRC.
Craft Distillers Continue to Emerge as Users of Packaging Machinery
From the beginning of the year to just recently, we have noticed more than one article regarding market trends that predict a downturn in the craft distilling and craft brewing industry. We noted at the beginning of the year that we disagreed with this prediction, and if inquiries regarding packaging machinery are any indication, the boom in craft distilling is far from faltering. At Liquid Packaging Solutions, our equipment now helps craft distillers from Washington to New York - and many places in between - prepare their spirits for the shelf.
