Craft Beer and Cider is a rapidly growing market and one that Northwest Packaging has been servicing with it’s bottle and can packaging for over a decade. We assist craft beer and cider brewers design and pack their product in packaging that let’s their brew do the talking while offering a strong retail presence.
We offer custom made short run productions for start-ups and micro breweries and cideries mindful of their budget.
At Northwest Packaging, we have existing tooling that offers beer and cider packaging from a four bottle carry pack through to an eight bottle partitioned carton, which will help protect your bottles while in transit. We also make 16 x335ml can cartons with side or rear loading, plain or printed with your brewery or cidery logo and artwork.
Northwest Packaging offers Digital, Flexographic and Lithographic printing options for your beer and cider packaging.
Digital Printing is suitable for short runs. You can have just one box printed in a one colour print through to four colours. No minimum order quantities required. It is a high quality printing option with low set up costs.
Flexographic Printing is also suitable for short runs. You can have just one box printed in a one colour print through to four plus colours with a basic finish. No minimum order quantities required. Flexographic print is considered more eco-friendly. Flexographic print requires a stereo which costs approximately between $350 and $650 depending on artwork and number of colours.
Lithographic Printing is by far the highest quality printing process in terms of resolution of artwork, colours, and finishes, offering a range of different colours from a single colour print through to full colour print. Lithographic Printing is more cost effective when ordering 500 boxes or more. A film plate cost will apply for lithographic printing.
In addition to manufacturing, Northwest Packaging offers at an affordable cost, a complete packing and fulfillment service to get your product to your customers and instore if required.
