THE IMPORTANCE OF PACKING

We understand how packing and shipping activities are essential to the smooth functioning of any finishing operation. We offer a variety of different options for organizing, packing, and shipping your project. Our final interaction with your finished tags is the packing and shipping stage of the order. This is when we have the opportunity to ensure that your finished pieces arrive at their destination in good order. We are admittedly finicky about packing cartons, because if we fail to do so, we put our work at risk.

THE PARTICULARS OF PACKING

We put a good deal of emphasis on how tags ought to be packed for shipment to M&F, as well. We go into this in some detail in our Design Guidelines. If you have questions on how we ship, or how you should ship us your tags, please contact us!

Standard Pack-Out Operations

Our production staff takes great care in packing each carton to ensure that the bundles of your finished tags are not able to move around during shipment. By default, we band tags in bundles of approximately 50, and pack the bundles into bulk cartons weighing less than 35 pounds.

High Quality Cartons

Shipping procedures can significantly impact the delivery of a project. We pack out in the strongest 75-pound test cartons available, using high-quality reinforced gum tape. We always take care to securely reinforce our cartons for shipping, to ensure that the finished product arrives at its intended destination without damage.

ADDITIONAL — Poly Bagging

We understand that for some applications, finished pieces must be packed into specific quantities. Instead of shrink-wrapping, we offer scale counting and poly-bagging as an additional service to our clients, to protect and organize your finished tag job.

ADDITIONAL — Drop Shipments

Many of our clients find it convenient to have us ship their job directly to a number of destinations, in varying quantities. If time is of the essence, you may find this useful as well. We charge a small fee for each drop shipment, but not for blind shipment.
