In the competitive beverage marketplace, products need to create a memorable first impression and stand out from the rest on retail store shelves. Inks and coatings help to convey what is inside a can or bottle, but also play a key role in differentiating brands, according to packaging materials experts.
Beverage marketers know that packaging plays an important role in sales. Just as important as the bottle or can that a beverage is packaged in, is how that package is labeled. Without it, consumers couldn’t tell which brand is which.
For many people, getting “inked” is a way to express their individuality. Although not quite the same as tattoos, inks and coatings in the beverage industry can be an important element to help brand owners set their products apart on the store shelf.
