Label promotion: What do a dog and horses have to do with beer?
PFFC
Of all the Super Bowl commercials, my favorite and most memorable was the Budweiser ad where a lost puppy is menaced by predators near to home. Horses fend off the predator and come to the puppy’s rescue — then provide an escort to the house and a very relieved owner. Known as "best buds," the commercial certainly brands Budweiser, from the double entendre of "buds" to the Clydesdales escorting the puppy home. But more than that, it just makes me feel good to watch it.

Kraft blasted for trash generated by Capri Sun pouches
Packaging World
A coalition of national and state public interest groups has launched a second push through the Make It, Take It Campaign to pressure Kraft Foods to take responsibility for what the coalition sees as the impacts of Kraft’s packaging waste. The focus is Kraft Foods' Capri Sun pouches, which are made by bonding aluminum and several layers of plastic together, making them difficult to impossible to recycle. According to the coalition, only 2 percent of the pouches are estimated to be collected nationwide, "which means that nearly every Capri Sun pouch has been wasted or littered since they were introduced in the 1970s."

Soft-Touch Packaging: A Value for Consumers
By Sharon Derbyshire
Packaging is viewed as an extension of the product, and the consumer's first perception of value is based on look and feel of the package. Research shows that consumers spend on average three seconds eyeing a product on store shelves before deciding whether to purchase — sometimes referred to as the first moment of truth. Soft-touch thermoplastic elastomers are a package differentiator, often visually alerting the consumer that there is something unique about this package and product.

Child-resistant packaging: One of the noblest assignments
Packaging World
Child-resistant (C-R) packaging is familiar to most of society; however, it behooves packaging professionals to have more than a passing familiarity with it for at least several reasons. One is that although C-R packaging has been federally mandated since the 1970s, the supplier industry is not static and new designs regularly appear. Another is that companies whose products don't fall under the federal mandates nonetheless are free to voluntarily use C-R packaging. Yet another is that the self-suggesting purpose of C-R packaging can obscure the many intricacies that determine how well a particular design fulfills the purpose.

Winding Machines: Mechanics and Measurements

Winding Machines, Mechanics and Measurements is the definitive book on the science of winding written by noted experts Dr. David Roisum and Dr. JK Good. This three-part book (with supplemental CD-ROM) describes the various classes and arrangements of winding machinery commonly found in the web industries including discussion of controls and defects; describes how roll stresses and roll defects can be predicted by mathematical models and what factors are important; and discusses almost every method for measuring and evaluating wound roll quality. The book describes how and why many wound roll defects occur. In more than a few cases, it even describes when defects occur based on winding models that have matured to the point of trustworthy application. In these cases we have science at its best, a predictive tool. A CD with an easy-to-run winding model is included with every book. However, one need not be a scientist to appreciate and use this text. Much of it is written in everyday language describing the machines we work with, the defects we see and the many measures of roll quality. It is a book that most plants with a winding department would want to have.
