Flow wrapping is a fast, attractive and cost effective alternative to shrink wrapping or blister packing. A flow wrap consists of a product wrapped in a plastic or paper film, heat sealed top and bottom and up the centre of the back to create a distinctive 'fin' seal, which is often used to tear the wrapping open.

As the name suggests, flow wrapping is a continual process, with the end of each wrap forming the start of the next one. This allows flow wrapping to be faster and more efficient than other packaging options. With its relatively small pack size, low wastage and the ability to use sustainable paper film, flow wrapping can also be a particularly environmentally friendly way to pack a product.

We are able to wrap a wide range of items and of various shapes and sizes in printed or plain, clear plastic, metallised foil or paper film. Possible product types range from cards, leaflets and brochures up to 3D components such as boxes, dice, poker chips and counters.

As well as a standard stand alone wrap we can offer Euro slot and/ or bandolier finishing using films ranging from 30 micron clear through to printed metallised and food grade.

“Cartamundi were terrific to work with.We undertook two very large projects and both were superbly managed. At every stage the Cartamundi team communicated effectively and ensured we were always given options and sign off.
The overall quality of the final product …many millions of flowpacks was very good indeed. The agreed schedule of multiple deliveries was never changed and all deliveries were made on time and in full.
Cartamundi helped us run two very successful consumer promotional campaigns.”
