Personal Care & Pharmaceutical

For personal care and pharmaceutical products, we use high speed automated equipment, surface printed polyethylene film with anti-static agents, ink systems that are resistant to scuffing and scratching, special resin blends, good optics and very good sealability. This is what is required in the overwrapping of paper products such as tissue paper, hygenic paper and paper towels.

We offer rollstock products as well as pre-made bags. POLYSTAR offers a variety of bag configurations from large gusseted bags with handles to string re-closeable bags. Although we cover most of the angles, we welcome the opportunity to collaborate with you to create new and unique products. You can rely on our expertise when it comes to reproducing very high quality graphics. We offer flexographic printing up to 10 colors, offering 133 lpi, 175 lpi and High Definition. Let us work with you to ensure your product stands out on the shelves.

For Pharmaceutical OTC type products, you need a supplier that offers high quality products. What that entails is a combination of very good printing ability and having the understanding and capability to offer various types of structures. First and foremost however, you need a converter that has the systems in place to trace product back to raw materials, operators, etc… To us tracking and traceability are extremely important. Equally important however is using high quality FDA approved products and monitoring all production aspects utilizing a solid QA group. We both see the business the same way. We want a win/win partnership!
