The holidays look a little different this year and so do the graphics on the 2020 holiday popcorn box at Poteet Printing Systems. Since 2001, Poteet has gifted a corrugated box filled with a bucket of popcorn as a tasty and colorful holiday gift to clients. This gift includes a new, unique design and three flavors of popcorn each year.
In light of the current pandemic events, the box features a snowman practicing pandemic safety by wearing a mask. In addition to the health focused snowman, a colorful snowy town, peaceful rolling hills of snow, and “Peace, Health, and Happiness” adorn the flexographically printed corrugated box.
This year features a first for the annual popcorn box – graphics on the inside of the box! The interior is printed with snowflakes falling with Poteet’s new Select High Opacity White. The exterior of the box is printed with ProX Process inks and GC50N Gloss Overprint Varnish.
The popcorn is packed in Poteet Printing Systems’ signature black bucket and mirrors their ink product labeling. “I wanted a way to connect with the people we have the privilege of doing business with. And, our bucket was a memorable way to do just that,” says Roger Poteet, President of Poteet Printing Systems.
Poteet customers will notice the fun twist on the standard ink buckets with all labeling and Safety Data Sheet content referencing popcorn! Some of these comical popcorn references on the Safety Data Sheet include “first aid for eyes: looks pretty good,” and “hazard statement: do not eat too much, relax, sit back, and enjoy!”
While 2020 has been a year of new challenges in the packaging and printing industry as well as in personal lives, Poteet Printing Systems annual popcorn gift continues to bring joy and color to Poteet business partners and customers.
