Paint Packaging: Paints, Coatings, Adhesives, and Inks

Alternate paint packaging sources, UN testing, and modern designs frustrate most in these colorful markets. A large variety of glass, steel, tin and plastic packaging is necessary considering the number of assorted products a single company can produce. Alternate sources frequently need to be found due to last-minute fluctuations in the market. Prohibitive costs are often the result for purchasers.

Success Story

Paint Packaging - Steel Pail

Steel Pail Lithography Makes Premiere Concrete the “Bear” in the Market

Premiere Concrete Solutions was not communicating the strength of its brand. Up to that point, they used labels on steel pails. Their competitors printed directly onto their pails for a more professional appearance.

Premiere and Pipeline developed intricate “bear art” to better promote their brand and visually compete on the shelf. Working directly with the pail manufacturer, the artwork was tweaked to ensure an accurate rendering with a stunning appearance.

The new pails definitely created a lasting image in the buyers’ minds! Likewise, the packaging industry itself has also recognized Premiere and Pipeline’s efforts. All four designs have been awarded NACD Decorating Awards – proof that your paint packaging on the outside can be as important as the product on the inside.
