  1. JohnsByrne Advent Calendar

Finally, for our JohnsByrne holiday 2023 program, we wanted to create a card and gift that reflected our premium sustainable packaging capabilities as well as our latest innovation to create a unique unboxing experience.

As we produce premium packaging and specialty print all year long for our many customers and brands, we are continually inspired. For this year, we drew inspiration from the many advent calendars that we’ve produced.  We also wanted to feature the enhancement capabilities of our new Scodix digital enhancement press including foil, tactile coating and Cast & Cure.

We decided upon a ‘Warm Wishes’ theme and engaged our structural design team to develop concepts for the card and carton as well as our operations team to plan our digital enhancements.

The result was a sustainable and fully recyclable package featuring differentiating enhancements for a unique and memorable unboxing experience.

Check out our video covering the production of our 2023 holiday program featuring our latest Scodix capabilities.
