Protecting the Pets that Protect Us with NASC + Warrior Dog Foundation: FREE WEBINAR

Posted by Brittany Nader

For centuries, dogs have played an extremely important role in safeguarding American citizens — not only as protective household pets, but also as active combat animals in the United States military.

The keen senses canines possess make them invaluable in wartime situations. From apprehending insurgents to tracking targets, along with their astute sense of smell, high running speeds, forceful bite, exceptional vision, agility, and strength, dogs have innate gifts that simply cannot be replicated by humans or machines. These warrior dogs have saved tens of thousands of lives, but did you know that until the year 2000, it was legal and common practice to euthanize K-9s after they completed their services?

Video Testimonial: Becoming a Trendsetter with Unique Pouch Styles

Posted by Brittany Nader

 

Every contemporary brand wants to stand out from the crowd and set their product line apart from the competition.

Launching new and exciting goods that have the ability to help move society forward and reshape entire industries is a feat most aspire to. However, getting people to have faith in your new product and a willingness to try it out requires careful strategizing and crafting the perfect visual messaging that entices others to try it out. The goal is to get consumers excited about your company and its offerings to the point that they make an effort to run out to the store to grab your product before it sells out. Much of this eagerness can be created by choosing product packaging that excites and delights and aids in the overall experience of enjoying your items.

6 Ways to Build Your 'Cannabrand' with Medical Marijuana Packaging

Posted by Brittany Nader

 

The primary election season is in full swing, which means candidates and politics are top of mind for many Americans. One issue we’re paying close attention to, as a marijuana packaging company in Ohio, is the legalization of medicinal cannabis here in our Buckeye State.

Last week, the Ohio House of Representatives introduced House Bill 523, which would legalize marijuana for medical purposes only. While, if enacted, the law would be a bit more stringent than legislation passed in other states, it would create ample opportunity for new brands to create and dispense marijuana and THC-infused goods for patients. In our world of packaging, this would increase the amount of questions we receive regarding how to package marijuana safely and legally, while still giving cannabrands a competitive edge.

Protecting the health and wellbeing of pets begins with carefully inspecting and auditing the companies involved in manufacturing and supplying the products we give to our animals.

How the NASC Works to Protect Pets with Supplement Packaging Standards

Posted by Brittany Nader

Dedicated pet owners are committed to making sure their furry friends are happy and healthy.

From the type of food they purchase to the veterinarian they select, animal lovers often put as much time and care into finding the very best options for their pets’ wellbeing as they do themselves and their families. Animal supplements have become a hugely popular industry, as pet owners seek out nutritional products and vitamins that help strengthen the health and immunity of their cats, dogs, and horses. Just as federal regulations are set in place by the Food and Drug Administration to ensure consumable products are safe for humans, the same standards of quality must be upheld to guarantee animals are not harmed by supplements that are out on the market today.

Why Coffee Packaging Like Starbucks Succeeds at Storytelling, Design

Posted by Brittany Nader

Since its inception in 1971, Starbucks has been instrumental in changing the way we consume and interact with coffee.

The coffeehouse chain, with its abundance of locations across the world, is often credited with making the morning coffee run a key part of our modern culture. The trendy, forward-thinking brand took the warm caffeinated beverage out of the beatnik cafes deemed inaccessible to those outside of the urban scene to the West Coast, where the brand proudly boasted its commitment to environmental and fair trade issues. People could feel good about purchasing a cup of coffee from a brand that started as one of the “little guys” in Seattle and achieved the American dream by growing and expanding and, eventually, becoming an instantly identifiable part of society in the 21st century.
