OK this is not a former life. I live for packaging. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING comes in a package of one sort or another.
I defy you to tell me otherwise.
Point in fact. The fruit you buy at the grocery store in bulk, they all have little stickers with numbers. Guess what that is. It tells the checker the part number and hence it’s price per pound or per piece. That cereal box you used to pour your breakfast over a sliver of milk is that size for a reason — to get you to see the product and perhaps be inclined to buy it.
I sell packaging but not just any sort of packaging. My specialty is Optical Disc media — you know those CD’s and DVD’s you buy for your music or your games.
My claim to fame…. you know those large drums that hold CD-R’s and DVD-R’s in bulk? The original was my design. We called it a BeeHive back in the day. Nowadays they call them Cake Boxes.
Now my point. There is none.
Just that WestPack a show for packaging is coming to Orange County and I mean to attend that show to get some ideas on the next big thing in packaging. Because everything comes in a package and it might as well be bought and sold by yours truly.
Maybe the next big thing will be better food containers that keep food fresh, stack well and are dirt cheap. Or maybe a higher-end looking Digital HDD case — wait, I already came up with that one. I wonder….
