Posted: November 20, 2012

All Bottled Up!

Package Design offers a sampling of the latest innovations in glass and rigid plastic containers.

PermaSeal II Containers
These 360°-view plastic tube containers utilize Visipak’s standard high-clarity PETG material along with a durable rigid bottom welded into one end. The hard PETG plastic bottoms and shorter wall heights provide the increased rigidity necessary for packaging lighter items.

Fou-dre Vodka
The ultra-premium glass bottle mimics a lightning bolt and has a plastic capper containing a bartop cork. The glass is sprayed with an organic purple transparent ink and screen-printed with silver metallic and black ink.

Bottle within a Bottle
The “bottle within a bottle” creates a window into an elegant realization of the Bombay Sapphire brand. This project explored new technical possibilities by bringing together the expertise of jewelers, glass blowing, crystal cutting, and 3D laser-etching.

Twirl by Kate Spade
Twirl by Kate Spade resembles a disco ball with a simple, yet heavy, shape and screen-printed, real-gold dots. SGD Group designed the round bottle and decoration process to create perfectly round gold dots while wasting a minimal amount of gold.

Lightweight 187-ml Bottles
This ultra thin (less than 100 nm) PET material is transparent and resists cracking, abrasion, and delamination. The KHS Plasmax Silicon Oxide barrier coating, a glass-like material, seals the container from the inside to protect the contents from oxidation.

Dream Bottle Cap
The new DREAM bottle is designed to emulate the classic look of original stopper bottles with the advantages of a modern spray dispenser. The capacity is 100 ml with a 15 mm crimp finish, available in flint and frosted glass.

Gerber EasyScoop
Gerber introduced its new 32-oz EasyScoop plastic packaging with a contoured handle that is easy to grip and a wide-mouth opening for easy scooping. The scoop attaches to lid to keep it out of the powder.

Sorbonne Line
TricorBraun designed the patent-pending Sorbonne Line to fill a market need for a new stock line of cosmetic quality, beautifully designed bottles for the prestige liquor market.

Toly Seoul Line
The Seoul Line consists of a double-walled airless container with side button actuation and includes a uniquely designed shutoff pump. Integrated into the cap is a sponge applicator that rotates out of the cap for easy use.

Cosmo Rounds
Alpha Packaging has expanded its line of Cosmo Rounds made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Now in 4-oz and 16-oz sizes, these bullet-style squeezable bottles are commonly used for shampoos, hair care products, body lotions, and pet care products.

Photochromatic Masterbatches
Americhem has introduced photochromatic masterbatches, which enable packages to change colors when exposed to ultraviolet light. The eye-catching masterbatches, available in a wide variety of colors, can either be used on portions of a package or on the entire package.

Ecosolution Nature
Using Promens AirFree technology, Ecosolution is an ecological airless dispensing system protected by three patents. The airless bottle and airless dispensing system have fewer parts while retaining the protection and ecological advantages of airless.

Sapphire Summer Pitcher
This acrylic liquid pouring pitcher with detachable dispensing lid is 7-3/4" x 5-1/8" x 12-1/8". The package conveys the summer coolness of Bombay Sapphire, no matter where it’s found, along with a summery sustainable message.

Beveled Square Collection
This collection is a versatile family of square HDPE plastic bottles with distinctive beveled corners. Lightweight and virtually unbreakable, the stylish containers could be used for moisturizers, body lotions, sunscreen, and many other skin care products.
