Your Heart - Not Your Chocolate - Should Melt This Valentine's Day
Tips & How-To's
Valentine's Day is almost here! Have you ever thought about what goes into the packaging to ensure that all those boxes of chocolates arrive safely to their intended recipients? AP&P offers custom solutions from our packaging experts as well as a wide variety of in-stock packaging items to ensure that your products arrive safely at their destination.
At AP&P, our packaging experts are used to dealing with the challenges of packaging sensitive products. Along the way, packages are rocked and rolled, heated and cooled, stacked and dropped. It's our job to make sure that your product gets to where it's going, and arrives safely without any damage.
Every product is different and calls for specially made packaging. Whether your product requires support for multiple complex parts, dust-free shipping, non-abrasive packaging, or reusable materials, our packaging engineers will think inside the box to design the perfect container. Check out some of the unique packaging challenges and solutions to come out of our Pack Lab:
