What Is Printed Bundling Film?


Printed bundling film is bundling film that has been printed with full-color graphics, typography, product information, handling instructions, ingredients, or other info about the products contained within the package.


But, what exactly is bundling film?

Bundling film is a higher gauged shrink film that is created from various layers of plastic. This type of flexible packaging film is generally used for packaging heavier items such as bottles of water. It is a fantastic material for unitizing products that require a higher strength film than regular shrink film.


Uses For Printed Bundling Film 


Printed bundling film is used extensively for the formation of multi-packs of consumer products. But before we go any further, we have to answer one question.


What Is A Multi-Pack?




A multi-pack is a bundle of consumer goods that are packaged together as a value item. The products in a multi-pack are bought in a collection by the consumer. As such, when consumers buy these bundled items in bulk, they pay less than what they would have if they purchased each item separately.


This alone makes multi-packs super popular with the everyday consumer. But that is not the only reason that buyers love these bundles.


So what are some of the other reasons that your customers will love buying your multi-packs? First off, they are a lot easier to purchase and carry when compared to buying and transporting singles of any item.


And, the lower cost motivates the buyer to pick your products over those of your competitors who only offer singles. More products grabbed and gone mean more products sold!


What Is Another Use For Printed Bundling Film?


As for the other uses of printed bundling film, these applications may include creating bundles of products that would never be sold as single items in the first place.


For example, printed bundling film (which, as previously mentioned, is a form of shrink film) is also commonly employed by logging companies. 


Loggers and other land management companies who do forestry work will often cut a portion of their logs into pieces of firewood. One of the most common ways to package firewood is with printed bundling film.
