Shelf Impact
By utilizing the packaging services of its packaging brand lifecycle management agency, Sun Branding Solutions (SBS), brand owners can create an engaging packaging design that stands out on the shelf, maintains brand color consistency every time, utilizes special effect inks and coatings and complies with low migration regulations. SBS can also determine the right packaging structure for the specific needs of each customer.

Sun Chemical offers a variety of security ink solutions including an infrared coding solution called Verigard™, a security system that adds a small quantity of taggants, or chemical markers, to inks, varnishes or coatings for use in any print process on any substrate. Sun Chemical’s brand protection experts will be on hand at the booth to discuss the variety of covert, overt and semi-overt options Sun Chemical offers brand owners to maintain brand integrity.
