Winter Fancy Food Show® 2017

Encore recently exhibited at the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco! This was the first time we exhibited at the west coast show. It was great to see contacts we’ve made at previous shows and meet new ones as well!

For this show Encore developed some new packages, with a focus on natural materials. Another theme we concentrated on was interactive packaging; for example, a wood box with handles that could be taken apart and reassembled differently to use as a wine rack. We also designed some new specialty boxes and bags in a range of substrates, including folding paper, rigid with textured paper wrap, wood with paper sleeves, felt, and fabric.

Trending now: Marsala & Rose Gold

Our favorite color trend of the moment is the eye-catching combination of marsala and rose gold.

Marsala, which was announced as Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2015, is an earthy red-brown that was inspired by the red wine of the same name. It is both elegant and grounded, and makes for a great neutral that can also make a dramatic statement. According to Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®, “Marsala enriches our mind, body, and soul, exuding confidence and stability.” It is a color that fills perfectly our current need for authenticity and security in a time of going back to basics.

Rose gold is a metallic we have seen popping up, not only in jewelry but also in accessories, home décor, spring 2015 runways, and even hair. Technically, this metal is an alloy of gold and copper, and by adjusting the proportions or adding other metals such as silver, you can get variations from light pink to deeper red. Despite how simply it is made, this metallic shade has a more exotic quality than the more traditional metals, and pairs well with marsala.

Taking our cues from these trends, Encore designed a set of coordinated boxes and tin accordingly. Does your brand need some trend-forward packaging? We can interpret trends to your industry and tailor to your packaging needs. Contact us for more information today! info@encoreintl.com 973.423.3880

EVA - the safer substitute for PVC

Ethylene vinyl acetate, commonly known as EVA, has been gaining popularity over PVC in bags, accessories, and packaging in the last few years.

There are several concerns regarding PVC, such as its non-biodegradability and toxicity. Due to its chlorine content, dioxin - a highly carcinogenic chemical - is generated as a byproduct of both its manufacture and disposal. Also, in order to be used in a broader range of applications, PVC is made softer and more flexible with the addition of plasticizers, which can potentially leach out of these products.

EVA is the copolymer of ethylene and vinyl acetate, the ratio between which can be adjusted to produce different physical characteristics including clarity, toughness, resistance, and flexibility. With little or no odor, no heavy metals, and no need for plasticizers, EVA offers a safer material than PVC.

While EVA may not be the final answer in the search for green polymers, the environmental and health impact is less harmful than PVC and is a step forward in the search for eco-friendly alternatives.

Have a Green Earth Day!
