Carton with insert: Product of the Day

For the pharmaceutical market, the Combination Carton includes a printed and folded insert into paperboard cartons, eliminating the need to add the leaflet separately on the packaging line. A window on the carton makes the inserts visible for electronic scanning and quality assurance inspection. Cartons are supplied as blanks, which are then opened and filled as before. Since fewer overall packaging components are needed, the carton/insert combo streamlines inventory and significantly reduces manufacturing costs by increasing line speeds and diminishing machine downtime.
