The corrugated industry has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. As a result the market is flooded with corrugated manufacturers.
As a result, selecting the best supplier for your specific need is a bit like finding a needle in a haystack:
- It will be time consuming.
- It will require in-depth knowledge of printing, design (both structure and graphic design) and production.
These projects run a significant risk of failure if something is not properly communicated.
That is where we come in.
If you do not have an established and successful relationships with a corrugated supplier, or an experienced buyer on your team, we can support your business with the design and purchasing process.
Corrugated projects include extensive details and aspects to be considered. We’ll ensure that all of these factors are addressed for you.

Prototypes are often needed in a bit of a hurry. They are frequently critical to new product roll outs, public appearances (i.e. Shark Tank), market testing, or meeting with an existing or prospective retailer.
It’s the combination of these elements that makes the production of prototypes such a tricky endeavor. Much of the work has been hurriedly done by the time the project gets to us – with that comes greater risk. The good news is that we have enough experience and skill in this area to anticipate the potential pitfalls and work to deliver an impressive product on time.
The Candid Truth About Prototype Development
In addition to the challenges mentioned about, another important aspect to consider for your prototype project is this:
Your project – for one reason or another – may not by itself be an attractive opportunity for print shops who might actually be perfect some day for your work. And this matters quite a lot to the development process of your prototype.
By working through us we can help deliver the bigger picture so as to keep the shops engaged and help them to understand the broader relevance of participating in the quote process for your project.
Real World Testimonial from a Client
“I’m in the bean to bar chocolate manufacturing business and needed assistance on chocolate bar wrapper graphics and finding a printing company who shared my desire to achieve the highest quality printing work. I learned of Marc Laucks through a collaborative type of Chocolate Makers website. I contacted him and immediately knew that I had made the right call. Marc was able to guide and assist me in the areas where I needed the most help. Marc works to the highest professional standards. Not pushy but very matter of fact. He will guide you through the marketing maze and printing jungle so your product comes out on top! Anyone who needs marketing and related services should talk to Marc and you will not be disappointed.”
