We combine Innovation, Practical and Italian Style
Communication is one of the best liked features of Alimac tape carry handles all over the world.
It is a real point of difference compared with other handling systems and gives customers added value.
The insert (Inlay) of the tape carry handle is printable with up to 8 colours.
The artwork can have different subjects - logotype, slogan, product benefits, sale promotion, barcode and QR code. Tests, icons, images and tables - we are able to produce anything, up to detailed combinations of drafts and colours.
Making your packaging more shelf attractive
The artwork makes the tape carry handle a communication tool that stands out and able to reinforce:
• Brand visibility.Shelves are crowded and a coloured tape carry handle makes your packaging more eye-catching among competitors. Brand equity is reinforced by printing brand name, logotype, slogan, etc.
• Product information:additional information is highlighted. Product packaging should communicate a wide array of information and space is precious.
• Key benefitsof the product:
• Sale promotion:price promotions, quantity promotions, special offers, special formats, and time/location sensitive promotions can be printed. The whole packaging does not have to be changed, just the tape carry handle:
• Bar code / Plu code.The cashier reads the bar code effortlessly thus optimizing time.
• QR Code.End consumers can easily go online to find out more about the topic printed - a competition, product website and so on. The QR Code printed on the tape carry handle easily makes your packaging “smart packaging”.
