Boxes have a multitude of uses. But, saving lives has to be one of the best yet! Check out this article about how The Baby Box Company is changing the world, one box at a time!
We get questions all the time about how to minimize damage to a customers product. We have used a multitude of ideas and options over the years. But, pretending that there is a TV inside is a pretty cool idea on many levels.

Most damage comes from careless package handlers. Those logistics companies are usually quick to blame the packaging. It's just something that we have to deal with most of the time. That's why All Star takes the time to make sure that the material used is rated high enough to withstand their punishment. Maybe printing an image of a TV or another socially coveted product would help in your case. Would like us to print something on your box that can help protect it? If so, give us a call!
I was watching one of my favorite shows this weekend, "CBS Sunday Morning." It's my favorite news program of the week. They have a great mix of relevant current events and fascinating stories from around the world.
This last Sunday they had a story that really made my whole family perk up. It was all about boxes! Specifically, Pizza Boxes. My seven year old kept telling me about how All Star should "find this guy and sell him some boxes." I had a huge grin on my face, because there is a guy out there that collects boxes! What a cool thing. Something that most of the world throws away, this guy collects. All kinds of pizza boxes, and he even describes the difference between cardboard and corrugated.
Watch this video and tell me you don't get a little excited about boxes. I love the "pizza box designers" excitement at even seeing her box in a dumster. I once ran into a box from All Star on a store shelf and was jumping up and down with excitement!
Do you have a product that you would like to create excitement about through packaging? Give us a call!

What I hear quiet often from our customers is that delivering on time is a top priotiry for them. Manufacturing is a process that involves many moving parts. Are your employees showing up to work on time? Are the parts being manufactured correctly? Are your customers receiving your products when they expect? There are some things that seem obvious when it comes to a company's manufacturing process. But, what if there aren't any boxes waiting at the end of the line?
There are several reasons for things going wrong, but running out of boxes shouldn't be one of them! We recognize that, often times, packaging is the last thing that many people think about. But if your packaging supplier isn't there with your boxes when they say they will, then your up a certain creek without a paddle.
If you your boxes are no where to be seen, call All Star today!
Interesting, quick, article about a study showing the cost effectiveness of using corrugated. In what ways corrugated help you have a competitive advantage? Contact us today and let us partner with you on creating a better package by design.
I had a conversation with someone today that said her company wanted a "nationwide" supplier for their packaging. Every now and then I hear that and I can't help but wonder what advantages they think they might be getting from a larger corporation.
I came across this article today and thought they did a great job of describing reasons to buy from a local supplier. Often I find that companies are having a hard time finding a local supplier to fit their needs. They have either given up on finding a better solution or think that there is no one else out there.
Give us a call if you need help finding a local supplier.

Price increase. Dirty words right? In the paper industry it's never a sure thing when you start to hear the rumblings of a price increase.
From time to time, we will hear rumors or speculation that a price increase will be coming soon. Often times, it turns out to be just that, rumors. But other times it turns out that, yes indeed, there truly is a price increase on it's way.
How does your current supplier prepare you for that moment when it comes to your packaging? Do they spring it on you last minute, giving you no options? Maybe they give you plenty of notice, but you're not quite sure if the amount they are going up is fair.
All Star has always taken an open and honest approach when it comes to an increase. We work with our customers to make sure that we out in front of things.
Has your supplier said anything about an upcoming increase? Give us a call, and we can help make sure that you aren't in the dark.
A box is a box, right? What about the time and effort to pack that box? What about that packaging's efficiency? Who ever heard of packaging a banana individually? Someone, somewhere, was sold on the idea. Think of the time and effort put into packaging bananas one at a time for a grocery store.
A lot of times we find that a certain product needs a lot of special custom packaging in order to make it to it's destination. That one package may take a lot of time to put together. How much time it takes to pack a box affects many things. There's the cost of employee time. The efficiency of the production line may be slower due to complex packaging. And often times antequated packaging is more costly to the customer.
Think of the time, money, and headaches you could save by having your packaging designed with your product and frustrations in mind. All Star prides ourselves on being able to be a consultant for our customers. What is it that would help solve your issues?
Call us today, we can help make things easier!
