Offers New Cost-Effective Packing Solution to Customers

 Chicago, IL November 28, 2012 – Rickard Bindery, an industry-leading postpress company specializing in folding, gluing, and stitching, announces that it now offers stretch film banding as a job packing option. With stretch film banding equipment installed in its facility, Rickard now offers this innovative, cost-efficient packing solution to its nationwide customer base.

The stretch film banders include several key features that will help Rickard Bindery offer customers superb packing quality and efficiency. The stretch film’s superior elasticity allows it to expand and contract to securely band a wide range of product and bundle sizes according to precise packing specifications. “Load and leave” and “10-second roll change” systems optimize banding production efficiency, helping Rickard customers save money and exceed end client turnaround expectations.

The stretch film banding systems utilize a completely recyclable banding material that conforms to a product’s size and shape. This helps Rickard maximize packing space efficiency, potentially reducing customers’ shipping costs. Stretch film banding at Rickard Bindery is transparent so it won’t obscure printing, and it is also available in a wide range of colored films upon request.

“Virtually every Rickard Bindery customer can potentially benefit from our new stretch film banding solution,” says Kevin Rickard, Vice President of Rickard Bindery. “We’re pleased to offer our customers a new, innovative way to protect their valuable printed products during transit.”
