Baker Labels Moves Into Digital Flexible Packaging

Baker Labels is producing digital flexible packaging through its BakPac division, following an investment in equipment and factory renovations, according to a report in Packaging News.

BakPac has produced sample packs of unbranded stand-up pouches that emphasize the diversity in the markets where flexible packaging is used. The company offers a selection of base materials in silver, white, clear, and various thermally laminated finishes, including soft-touch, matt, gloss, linen, and leather for digitally printed pouches. Options include zippers, tear notches, euro slots, and multi-web pouches.

“Digitally printed flexible packaging may only represent a tiny percentage of the flexible packaging market but, in the growing digital climate, it is likely to increase,” says Phil Smith, general manager for the company based near London. “The attraction of short runs and variability that digital flexible packaging offers is perfect for seasonal specials, trials, and many small-to-medium businesses.”
