June 25th, 1951 at 4:30 in the afternoon, everything changed. CBS broadcasted an hour TV show, in colour. Until this point, everything known was black and white. Everything we thought we knew was changed forever.

Now it is 2014 and point of purchase (POP) displays and packaging are entering their renaissance. Digital printing has become more affordable and the quality is near-offset.

When was the last time you watched a black and white TV? Then why are you still buying plain POP displays and packaging that requires high minimum quantities? What if you could order 10 displays, with a custom design on each one in full mind blowing colour? Well you can with Ideon Packaging’s Grand Format Digital Printer. You now have the ability to actually get what you want without expensive die costs and huge minimum quantities. With our in-house structural and graphic design teams we can custom tailor the perfect POP display or packaging for you so you can stand apart from your competitors. Time to get rid of that black and white TV and show off your product in HD.

Drop a line to graphics@ideonpackaging.com and see what the future is all about!
