Italian design and marketing company, Pegaso, which specialises in creative party products, has selected leading UK manufacturer of innovative flexible packaging solutions, Mercury Packaging to produce a range of biodegradable balloon bags for Disney.
Patrizia Di Stefano from Pegaso’s Purchasing Department explains: “This new product launch is the first biodegradable balloon bag available in Italy. Mercury Packaging was recommended to us and we chose the company for its experience in producing these clear, biodegradable packs.
She continues: “At Pegaso, we are extremely pro-active in sourcing environmentally-friendly packaging films and this collaboration with Mercury has proved to be very successful. We hope to work with them on an on-going basis.”
The bags feature a number of different Disney designs, namely Toy Story 3, Cars, Winnie the Pooh, Disney Fairies, Disney Princess and Mickey Mouse, as well as conventional birthday greetings, and contain a range of different sizes and numbers of balloons.
Produced from clear Crystalline Polypropylene (CPP film) they were printed in six colours using Mercury’s state-of-the-art eight-colour flexo printing press.
The finished product is a bag with side weld, lateral seal and punched Euroslot suitable for hanging on point-of-sale displays. Comments Mark Binks at Mercury Packaging: “We believe Mercury was recommended to Pegaso because of our extensive in-house print experience, combined with the product quality that we are able to assure our customers of.
Working with Pegaso on its range of Disney products is a great boost for us and is contributing to the company building on its growing export success.”
