CORONA, Calif., March 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- FoldedColor Packaging, a pioneer in the web-to-carton space, is pleased to continue growing and diversifying its customer roster with the addition of premium eLiquid flavor house Vapergate. FoldedColor produces 16 custom-branded carton variations for a lineup of vaping juices manufactured in Vapergate's 12,000 sq. ft. facility in Lakewood, Colo. Vapergate products are shipped to 48 states and 13 countries, and can be found in 3,500 retail locations.
Vapergate's 16 juice varieties are bottled in 30, 60 or 120-milliliter bottles containing branded product labels and childproof caps. Each of the bottles is housed in a FoldedColor-produced carton featuring brilliant colors and graphics representing the juice's brand and flavor profile.
"When we first started in 2013, we just shipped the bottles. Over time, companies in this industry began moving toward boxes because boxes improve shelf appeal in the retail aisle. They're also easily stackable, so they utilize the real estate better," said Yosh Yoshikawa of Vapergate.
Yoshikawa says FoldedColor was not the company's first folding carton supplier. "We placed our initial order with another company, and when we went to place a second, much larger order with them, they raised the prices on us," he said. "FoldedColor doesn't overcharge us, and they give us price breaks on our larger orders – which has helped us drive down our cost per unit."
While FoldedColor can fulfill larger orders, as it does for Vapergate, the company is unique in that it has made short-run offset-printed folding carton production affordable for the masses. With FoldedColor, budding businesses can bring entire product lines to market quickly and economically. FoldedColor's low 125-piece order minimum for offset printing is also ideal for companies that change their look or colors by season, and marketing teams that want to experiment with designs and promotions.
In addition to low pricing, Yoshikawa also attests to FoldedColor's high-quality products and rapid turnarounds. "Since the original order, we have placed several more orders for some of our top sellers, including our most popular 'Smurf' blue raspberry slushy flavor," he said. "We have never had any issues with FoldedColor, and we are always greeted with great customer service."
FoldedColor's online workflow streamlines the process of designing and ordering custom folding cartons. Customers select structural templates and obtain instant pricing online. They can design their carton online using FoldedColor's online editor, or design offline and upload final artwork. Customers then view and approve a 3D rendering of their project prior to submitting their order. Though the web-based order entry toolkit is intuitive, support is only a click or phone call away.
All folding cartons are manufactured on premium, fully recyclable solid bleached sulfate (SBS) paperboard using FoldedColor's seven-color offset printing process and extended color gamut technology. Customers have a choice of aqueous or UV gloss coatings for their cartons.
New vaping juice available. Vapergate's goal is to create delicious products and unique hardware aimed at delivering more appealing alternatives to traditional means of nicotine delivery. Learn more about Vapergate products, including the new 'Sweet Pea' flavor, at www.vapergate.com.
