Hand Bindery comes in many forms, from folding, to inserting, collating, banding, applying adhesives and the list goes on, but in the end, it is typically a labor intensive task that occupies space and requires additional labor. Hand Bindery with an outside vendor has the advantages of moving large quantities of product from your facility and allowing your press and bindery operators to focus on keeping the presses and binding equipment running. Opportunities, Inc. can employ our large staff to help achieve the output you need. Opportunities can provide additional packaging services such as shrink-wrapping, ink-jetting or bagging. Contact Opportunities, Inc. for your hand bindery needs.

Information to consider for pricing hand bindery projects:

  • Description or photo of each piece involved in the project
  • Size of each piece (L x W x H)
  • What steps are to be performed with each piece
  • Any additional packaging steps required (i.e. shrink-wrapping, bagging or insertion to an envelope)
  • Breakdown of product flavors or versions
  • Finished packing specifications and size, including number units per carton, skid stack or gaylord pack
  • Skid pattern of finished product

Flow wrapping is an efficient packaging option that provides faster cycle times with sealing capabilities of up to 140 packs per minute. This packaging method works well for retail and promotional items such as food, health & beauty products, and prizes. Minimal set up and tooling is required which allows for quick changeover. The material is fairly inexpensive and will seal and protect your product while giving it a professional look. Our equipment works with the following types of films:
PFMs Hawk Flow Wrapper
  • Laminated bonded polypropylene
  • Micro-perforated polypropylene
  • Hi-low density polyethylene
  • Heat-shrinkable materials with trimmed seals
Film can be clear, opaque, or printed to meet your needs and ensure the best package for your application. Call Opportunities to discuss your flow-wrapping needs.

Blister cards allow the consumer high visibility of your product without sacrificing security. This form of packaging provides ample room for graphics and product information.

Blister cards are a cost effective alternative to "plastic intensive" packaging such as clamshells, while still offering a similar look. In light of rising petroleum prices, many of our customers have chosen to make the switch to blister cards in order to reduce packaging costs by up to 60% and to eliminate up to 75% of the plastic from their packaging for a more environmentally friendly offering.

Our equipment includes rotary blister card sealing machines to handle both small and large production runs. Opportunities has years of experience helping customers work through the entire process of packaging their products in blister cards. We can walk you through the process from thermoforming (making the blisters), to blister card printing (which requires special coating), and sealing. Call Opportunities to discuss your blister card needs.

Information to consider for pricing blister carded projects:

  • Size of the item(s) to be packaged (L x W x H)
  • Size of the blister card
  • Coating on the card (aqueous or solvent based)
  • Dimensions of the blister cavity (L x W x D)
  • Flange size
  • Placement of the blister on the card
  • Weight of the total product in each package
  • Quantity of units to be blister packed
  • Number of units that will be packed into the master carton or display
  • Type of plastic to be used to manufacture the blister (i.e. PVC, PET, RPETG)
  • Note: Blister cards do require tooling
  • Provide timelines and lead-times. When do you need us to begin your project and when would you like Opportunities, Inc. to complete the entire project?

If you want a blister carded product and don't know the answers to these questions, please contact Opportunities, Inc., we are here to help guide you through the process.
