ADVANTAGES OF OUR CONVERTING

  1. The economic downturn will change industrial buyers' and consumers' buying habits and create new packaging opportunities and needs.  Our technology of paper and machinery can be a solution.
  2. Most box plants only have relationships and price.  They pay little attention to their promises for what they convert and deliver.
  3. With our many new 3 color Flexo folder gluers with die cut sections and vacuum transfer, we will not crush flutes of RSC and FOL boxes.  Our print registration is plus or minus one thirty second of an inch.  Quality for us, is total conformance to material and service to blueprints and specs.
  4. We have the latest computerized gluing system on some of our new Flexo folder gluers.  They have high speed cameras that inspect each box for perfect quality control.
  5. All our machinery is fast set-up (i.e. 10 minute average set-up).  That can reduce inventory of finished boxes due to the ability to run and deliver on a true J.I.T. basis. Used correctly, we save on warehousing space (approx. 8% of your bottom line).
  6. Cal Box II is ISO 9001-2008 (for quality/safety certification of industrial, display, and converted boxes and products).
  7. We sell through brokers, distributors, and integrateds. (California and El Paso)
  8. You can run boxes in any of our 6 manufacturing plants.  They are in Southern California, Tucson, El Paso, Houston, and Mesa AZ.

ADVANTAGES OF OUR STRUCTURAL DESIGNERS

"Designers Assert Control"

Who actually controls the paper decision?  Historically, the question has intrigued the industry, and there has been a competitive tension among creative designers, clients, customer production managers(buyers), and paper suppliers.

In a recent study, designers rank themselves as the most highly influential in the paper decision process.  Even taking into account that human beings have a tendency to see themselves as more central than they are, this result appears to be quite definitive, especially for creative designers.

But over the past five years clients have increasingly charged into the decision making process- either as partners or as meddlers-depending upon ones's perspective.  Why are clients increasingly assertive, as either partners or meddlers, depending upon the perspective?  Economic conditions and subsequent budget contstraints, are surely one reason.  Others may include broader knowledge about graphic design and it's elements than past generations; greater competition among multiple manufacturers for quality resources; concerns about "green" printing and corporate social responsibility; and a general spirit of collaboration between designer and client.  Whatever the  reason is, this is a compelling example of why the exact locus of a paper or style specification can be elusive.

Designers today still value print on a quality substrate for it's classic strengths as a medium- permanence, style, tangibility, physicality, sensuality, convenience, protability, authenticity, confidence.  Indeed, many buyers report that these qualities and characteristics can be more important than ever in the ephemeral world of digital communications because they offer a human connection otherwise missing in our daily lives.  Nothing compares with and actual sample being held, felt, and viewed- experiencing the magic of it in front of your eyes.
