Party Patch is a topical hangover patch containing a proprietary blend of vitamins and nutrients. The makers say when it is applied to the skin during drinking, Party Patch can dramatically help reduce the physical side effects of alcohol and restores your body’s natural defense system.
Party Smarter with Party Patch
Portable, painless, and effective, the Party Patch is essential for your next night out. It’s a great addition to vacations, weddings, bachelor or bachelorette parties, and your everyday hangover kit! Party Patch is available in packs of 5, 12, 24, and 50.
According to Mike Sandrin of Party Patch, “We wanted to produce Party Patch packages in smaller quantities; customize for individual occasions such as bachelorette parties. However, minimum order quantities from our manufacturing partner prevented us from pursuing this market. We needed to find a way to print and package in smaller volumes; to customize individual orders.”
For those of you keeping track of my posts, you may remember reading about Mike and his work on Fireball Cannabis:
In order to help Party Patch produce customized packaging, we put together a solution including the printing and filling of inkjet coated packaging film using the FP-230 Flexible Packaging Press from Afinia and the GP-3000 Form, Fill and Seal Packaging Machine from Phoenix Engineering. Let me tell you more about the hardware portion of this packaging solution.
The FP-230 Flexible Packaging Press is perfect for small to medium runs or varying print designs. Print small-format flexible packaging on-demand with inkjet-printable film. I’ve written about this press in a post covering Label Expo 2019.
According to Mike Atkins, National Sales Manager for Afinia Label, “The FP-230 Flex Pack Press is an innovation that many private label manufacturers and brand owners have been waiting for. This printer prints to specially coated films for specific flexible packaging applications such as nuts, coffees, confections and supplements. The most common customers for the FP-230 are in the chocolate, candy, THC edibles, and drink powders/supplements.” Continuing, Mike says, “It can be challenging to put together a flexible packaging solution because the film requires a specific makeup, the artwork will need to be compatible, and the flex packaging fill-form-and-seal machine has to be matched to the particular product. This is where it helps to have a team of knowledgeable advisors to help manufacturers navigate the project. The end result is a very unique, convenient and valuable solution for short run flexible packaging on demand. We worked together with Color Label Solutions to solve this for Party Patch.”
Brian Dykema of Phoenix Engineering, who makes the GP-3000 says, “the most difficult part of running the GP-3000 is “over-thinking” the machine. It’s really quite simple to operate, and we’ve built these types of devices for 35 years. It’s perfect for companies in the Medical, Biomedical, Dental, and Vitamin markets.”
Here is a short video of Party Patch making customized, flexible packaging for Christmas.
Mike Sandrin of Party Patch learned how to run the hardware quickly. According to Mike, “the most difficult part of the flexible packaging solution has been sourcing the film as it ships from Germany. As it’s expensive to ship, we’ve ordered very large quantities of material. But the growth of the product is reducing our risk on the material.”
The issue of stock is changing as we gain more customers in North America. The film is now stocked here in the US.
Customized Party Patch Packaging
Continuing, Mike says, “the customer response out of control. We’re not even advertised the product, but we are getting tremendous interest from Wedding Planners, Bachelorette and Bachelor parties, Birthday Parties, Celebrity events and even from Country Music.” You can find Party Patch on Amazon, Etsy, Pinterest, and other websites. Use Discount Code CLS20 to save 20% on your order.”
Customized Party Patch Packaging
Adding, Mike says, “It is especially great that we can now make customize patches down to 5 to 25 units. Typically, we run batches together once or twice per week to minimize waste of the material. This approach is working well for us.”
