Could you just use a full body shrink film? When the consumer activates the packaging, they just pull a zipper down the body of the sleeve and remove the shrink. That would address your concern over inks but allows you to still apply graphics to the can.

If, in their early morning fog they forget...then you have a smoking pile of melted plastic all over the cartridge. Its a good thought but that could be a real stinking mess that would only happen once I am afraid. In doing some more research the soy inks seem to not have much of a odor when they burn off (bit of smoke though and that's not good) so printing is maybe a option. That means of course because the printing will be destroyed in roasting you still need something that they can keep in hand as a reminder that "oh yea that was great lets get that again!" piece.

Easy fix with good design. Make something on the shrink package (also nicely labelled "sealed for Quality" so that it doesn't fit in the machine unless you take it off. It's a good idea that adds value, and also ritual to the process plus connotes sealed, high quality goods.

I'm sure there are plenty of other good design solutions like this if you have your eyes open looking for them, and not just blindly following the "it works, so it's good enough" mantra...

Hello all. I am glad to join this forum. I find interesting stuff here. I am as resident of Mitchell. Now I am planning to move to Phillip. I am wondering if anybody can recommend me how to handle relocation task and storage in Mitchell?
