Blister PacksBlisters

Blister cards can contain a regimen of different tablets, capsules, and soft gels in any combination, simultaneously providing a cost effective method of sampling. Blister packaging is on the rise partially because FDA-mandated compliance is driving adoption as well as a renewed focus on patient safety, compliance and convenience in the marketplace. Pharmaceutical companies have traditionally used blisters for OTC and Rx products. Many nutritional companies are now switching to blisters for all the reasons above and because this type of packaging adds perceived consumer value.


Blow-Fill-SealBlow Fill Seal

Blow-Fill-Seal packaging is customer specific. An important characteristic of the Blow-Fill-Seal Process is the sterile and pyrogen-free moulding of the bottles or ampoules directly from the extruded PE or PP in water cooled blow moulds with an immediate sterile filling of product, followed by a her-metic sealing of the container in one step and under aseptic conditions in the same machine.

Fragrance SpraySprayers

As competition escalates in the premium fragrance market, companies are looking for any advantage to successfully market products. The use of fragrance sprayer samples will give your company an edge over conventional vials and plugs. Consumers consider the fragrance sample sprayers to be almost equal in value to regular size sprayers confirming the prestige of the retail products. Maximize the potential for the success of your sampling promotion and use Telmark Packaging Corporation to supply complete fragrance sprayer samplers.

According to a scientific survey conducted recently by Marc Gilles & Associates:

*14% of consumers who tried a fragrance after being sampled with a conventional vial would purchase the product. 22% would purchase the product after sampling with the sprayer.

*21% of consumers who were sampled with the vial said that they would not buy the product as a result. Only 12% said that they would not purchase the products when sampled with sprayers.

*76% of consumers that were sampled with sprayers thought that the experience was positive and helpful compared to only 28% who were sampled with the vial.

*5 times as many consumers were likely to multi-use the spray sampler as the vial.


KitsKits

Consumers are endeared to the notion that buying several small products as a group has great advantages over buying full-size products. In fact, consumers are able to try products economically by purchasing travel-size kits. Using kits as a sampling tool can be invaluable. Whether used as give-a-ways or saleable samples, kits can provide the consumer with a comprehensive and usable sample of multiple products or regimens. Kits have much more “substance” than other sampling mediums such as foil pouch strips or thermoforms. Consumers will pay for these valued kits thereby offsetting the cost of the sample. In essence, you may have an opportunity to sample your products at no cost.

Many companies are taking advantage of the marketability of kits. Telmark Packaging Corporation is set up to provide you with turnkey kits. We will design the kit and components, purchase all packaging components, fill the primary containers and assemble the kits. We give you one price for finished kits

PouchesPouches

For well over forty years, pouches (also called packettes or sachets) have been one of the most widely utilized and popular sampling vehicles. The reasons are obvious. Pouches provide excellent barrier protection, maximum graphic reproduction, versatility and ease of use. However, their best feature is cost. Pouches are among the least expensive methods of presenting a product in a single-use format.

Another great advantage of packettes is that they can be die-cut to replicate the shape of primary containers or designed to create an orifice enabling directional product flow. The graphic capabilities of pouches are extensive using processes capable of accurately reproducing the most complicated graphics. Lithography, letterpress, flexography, and rotogravure are all available printing methods on flexible film material.


Pouches, FoodFood Pouches

Telmark Packaging Corporation represents extensive contract manufacturing and specialty packaging for the food industry. Our expertise is in blending powder and granular products such as spices, food mixes, nutritional supplements, snack foods and other dry food products. We then package these products into a variety of form-fill-seal containers such as pouches, gusseted pouches, zip-lock pouches and bag-in-box.

We also package liquid products such as salad dressing, condiments and sauces in form-fill-seal containers. Our facilities are FDA approved and we are designated as "Organic Certified". The modern 120,000 sq. ft. facility has bulk rail accessibility as well as silo systems for storing large volumes of dry products.

In addition, we have the capabilities to automatically carton, shrink-wrap, assemble displays, hot-melt and other secondary packaging options.

Our quality control systems are impressive and designed to insure that each product and package is manufactured to the highest standards. We utilize computerized combination scales and in-line check-weigh systems so that each package meets our high standards


Saran DispenserSaran Dispensers

Saran dispensers provide excellent barrier protection, allow for pinpoint directional dispensing, are easy-to-open, look attractive and are extremely cost effective.The ability to see your product through our clear saran gives samples a dimension that other packages, such as foil pouches, cannot. These tube hybrids are available in package sizes from 0.25ml to 90ml (3 fluid ounces) and can be filled with products whose viscosity range from water to toothpaste.

Saran dispensers, available in clear, white or black plastic, can be decorated on both sides with eye-popping hot stamp imprinting. In addition, our new pre-printing technology also allows for high-resolution, wrap-around, 7-color, process printing that can be used for the most complex graphics.


Scent Shapes™Scent Shapes

Telmark Packaging Corporation is proud to introduce ScentShape. This new fragrance concept involves molding scented plastic objects using custom-colored, fragrance-impregnated resin. It might sound complicated, however, Telmark’s systematic coordination of each operational phase insures that cost effective molded objects are produced.

Simply provide us with samples of your fragrance oil/s. We then make up a test batch of fragranced resin at no cost. We test this resin for stability, compatibility and fragrance release. During this phase we will provide you with samples to do your own evaluation.

Once approved, we take your fragrance oil/s and extrude them with plastic resin to produce homogenously scented resin beads color-matched to any PMS shade. Many of our customers stop at this point and use just the fragranced resin beads as potpourri or for scented sachets. The resin beads are available in a variety of different shapes and lusters.

ScentShape involves injection molding the colored and fragranced resin beads into virtually any shape imaginable. The aroma-life of these pieces is extensive because the fragrance releases slowly through the plastic. Yet, these items have dramatic aroma throughout their extended life. Use as samples that replicate the shape of original containers.


Sum-PakSumpak

Flow

SUM-PAK is a new, patented, unit-of-use, packaging system that has been designed specifically for mixing and delivering two-component liquids, gels or pastes. SUM PAK is strong, chemically stable, convenient, reliable and cost effective.

No tools or measuring devices are required with SUM PAK. There is no mess or waste. Each product is held in its own separate chamber. When ready to use, simply press the products through the burstable seals into and through the special mixing sections. Then, easily tear off top and dispense the homogenously mixed product through the controlled orifice opening.


ThermoformsThermoforms

Thermoforms are attractive, economical, easy to open, tamper-evident and can be utilized to hold one product or a regimen of several different products. They provide an excellent medium for accurately replicating the shape of primary packages greatly increasing product recognition.

Thermoforms are produced by feeding two pre-printed films through a mold that forms the film into shapes. At the same time as the package is formed it is filled and sealed. Optional labels are then attached on-line. The result is an extremely attractive, functional and economic unit-of-use package.

Thermoforms are ideal for packaging personal care products (skin care, shampoo, conditioner, mouth wash, fragrance, bath gels, cosmetics, etc); liquid vitamins & food supplements; dental products; contact lens solutions; insect repellents; air fresheners; water softeners; potpourri refills; automotive supplies; glues & adhesives; laundry detergents; wax & polish; and even food.


Tube StripsTube Strips

Telmark Packaging Corporation is proud to introduce you to a new and innovative unit-of-use tube. The patented Stat tubes are cast in sets of five and are available in a variety of clear or solid colors (we can match any PMS solid color). Stat tubes have been designed to handle a wide range of liquid and semi-liquid products providing an economic, attractive and consumer-friendly packaging alternative.

Telmark contract fills these tubes in the FDA compliant facility of our affiliate, Barron Packaging. Barron’s innovative filling equipment will allow up to 5 different products with separate label graphics to be filled in the strip. We inventory tube blanks, label in-house, fill and secondary pack to insure minimum lead times and maximum service. Filled and decorated tubes are generally available within 2-4 weeks. And, minimum order quantities are remarkably low.

(For those customers interested in filling in their own facilities, Telmark offers state-of-the art filler/sealers for incredible low prices. We will provide you with the decorated tube blanks, labeled to your specifications, that you can fill yourself.)
