Cork Ribbon

Cork Ribbon not only looks like cork, but it feels like cork too. It’s being used in home decorating and clothing, but I see a huge opportunity with retailers and the gift basket industry. If you’re selling liquor and wine retailers you should show this ribbon!

“Corkey” is a Berwick/Offray product, it’s wired and comes in three widths, 1-1/2”, 2-1/2” and 4”.

Gift Card Folder

Of course, I have to mention Shamrocks newest and greatest product, the Pop-Up Gift Card Folder.  NEW Pop-Up Gift Card have eleven patterns and are available for immediate shipment. They’re made from 80% recycled post-consumer board and are 100% recyclable! Envelopes are an available option

These folders are a lower cost option to the Pop-Up Gift Card Box. They function in exactly the same way, but they fold flat, making them mailable. Of course they can be hot stamped at Shamrock, and an order of 500 folders qualifies for a free plate.

Call or email our office if you need a quote or samples of any of these amazing products.

Bonita Expansion

Artique Floral Shoppe DesignLast week Bonita Pioneer announced the purchase of a new 110,000 square foot production facility in Forest City, North Carolina.  Printing and bag making equipment which has been in storage will now be relocated to the new facility, and running by mid-summer.

What does this mean to you? This strategic move will be a huge benefit to our Bonita customers in the Midwest. More capacity is being created, so lead times will decrease, and shipping costs will be reduced.  How can anybody not love More Product and Less Cost?

The new plant will be a production and distribution facility only. Administration and customer service will remain in Portland.

If you haven’t taken a good long look at Bonita’s Artique Collection yet, (pictured above) now is the time. It won BEST NEW PRODUCT at the 2014 RPA.  The Collection contains a large array of designs and styles. Simply insert a logo, and your customers have exciting packaging, without the expense of artwork and plates. Interested? Click HERE.
