Benefits Of Custom Case Cushioning

Custom case cushioning has many properties that make it the ideal solution for your needs.

The only problem is that this product could be difficult to ship. A lot of what we place in cases is more fragile than we think, and trusting packing peanuts and bubble wrap to do all of the protection for us isn’t the best solution. This is why you need a custom made case with custom case cushioning, to ensure that the product you’re sending will be cradled with care and reach its destination safely.

What to Look for in a Packaging Company

Friday, September 4th, 2015

packaging company When you begin your search for a custom case for your equipment, you don’t want to just choose a company from thin air. You want to conduct some research before you make a decision to ensure the company is right for you. You must determine if the packaging company is able to fit your needs without leaving your equipment damaged and your budget completely spent. As you conduct your search for a packaging company, consider some characteristics.

You should first consider the reputation of the packaging company. Ask them if they have worked on any major projects in the past and if they are able to provide you with references. A lack of references could be a red flag to lack of professionalism or just a lack of experience, both things you don’t want from a packaging company.

You should then discuss customization options with the packaging company. With an equipment case, one size should never fit all. The company should be able to provide you with a list of ways that your case can be customized. If they can’t provide you with this, it means they won’t be able to customize your case to fit your specific needs.

Another characteristic to consider is the materials used to create the cases. Poor materials can lead to poorly made cases, which can leave your equipment damaged.

The staff working for the packaging company is another item to consider. You want to be greeted with friendly staff who will take the time to answer your questions and provide you with the information you want and need. If you call the company, you should be able to easily speak with a knowledgeable staff member without issue.

At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom aluminum cases to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential a custom aluminum case is when transporting equipment for military and medical purposes.

Characteristics of a Packaging Company

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

When you are looking for a packaging company to create your new custom equipment cases, you don’t want to choose the first name you hear of. It is essential to conduct research of a packaging company to determine if they are the right fit for your needs. If you choose the wrong packaging company, your equipment could be left damaged, and your budget could be left empty. Instead of choosing a name from a hat, look for a few different characteristics to determine if the packaging company is right for you.
Packaging-Company

The first characteristic to consider in your packaging company is their reputation. Ask to see some of their past work and if they have ever worked on any major projects. You should also ask for a list of references. If the company is unwilling to provide you with the information, it can be a clear sign that their reputation is less than desirable.

A packaging company should also be able to provide you with a customized case that suits your needs. They should be able to provide you with a list of options to help create a case that meets all of your needs.

A reliable packaging company should use quality materials to create their products. Low quality materials may seem cheaper in the initial price, but could lead to serious costs in damages to your equipment.
A packaging company is only as strong as its staff. When you visit with a potential packaging company, talk to different members of the staff. By talking to staff, you can get a sense of the work that is done along with the knowledge and skill the hired staff contains.

At Packaging Strategies Incorporated, we create custom aluminum cases to protect the important equipment held inside. We know how essential a custom aluminum case is when transporting equipment for military and medical purposes. We pride ourselves on creating cases that meet every need of our customer while also exceeding their expectations, at a price that is affordable and reasonable.

Independence Day and PSI

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2014

Independence Day

This Friday marks the 238th birthday of the United States of America. July 4th is the most celebrated day in America, as it highlights the independence of the United States from Britain. As Americans from all across the country begin to celebrate the holiday with parades, cookouts, and fireworks, here are a few things to remember about the holiday!

  1. Declaration of Independence- Independence Day is the celebration of the signing of the document known as the Declaration of Independence. This document, signed by Robert Livingston, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Thomas Jefferson, declared America’s independence from Britain.
  2. Federal Holiday- Although Independence Day had been celebrated since 1776, Congress didn’t declare the day a federal holiday until 1938.
  3. Not the Accurate Date- While we continue to celebrate our Independence on July 4th, the truth still remains that the actual time of independence came at least a month later. The Declaration of Independence was fully signed by each member of the Continental Congress until August 2nd and didn’t reach King George the Third until August 30th.
  4. Death of Two Men- On July 4th, 1826, 50 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson passed away within hours of one another.
  5. Fireworks- The tradition of fireworks on July 4th began around the 19th century when citizens began to light and set off left over explosives from the war. Today, over 14,000 fireworks displays are ignited each year for the holiday.

Packaging Strategies Incorporated enjoys celebrating the independence of the United States of America each year. Our company is proud to continue our partnership with every branch of the United States Armed Forces who continue to protect the independence of the American people.

Independence Day: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

How Can Foam Interiors Enhance your Case?

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Custom Foam InteriorWhen you invest in a custom case to transport your medical or electrical equipment, you want to get the most for your money. One of the best ways to get the most out of your custom case is to include a custom foam insert for your interior. Some might not think that a foam interior will be helpful for the case, but a foam interior can have several benefits.

  1. Inside Protection- While the outside layer of your case protects your equipment from natural elements, a foam interior will protect the equipment itself. Along with the outer shell of your equipment, the inner workings of your equipment can become damaged during transportation. Foam interiors will absorb shock and movement while being moved to help better protect your equipment.
  2. Element Protection- While the outside of your case will take the brunt of the natural elements during a move, a foam interior can help protect against the elements as well. Foam interiors will help prevent water damage as well as help maintain a steady temperature.
  3. Lightweight- Foam interiors will help add a layer of protection without adding unnecessary weight to your case. This will help transport the case easier and won’t add additional fees when it comes to shipping.
  4. Organization- Foam interiors can be made custom, just like the case itself. This will make for a easy assembly once your equipment reaches its destination. Each piece of equipment can be easily found because it has its own place in the case.
  5. No Mess- A foam interior is made to fit easily and snugly in your custom case. This eliminates the mess of other packing materials.

At Packing Strategies Incorporated, we specialize in making and installing custom foam interiors for your custom cases. PSI understands that your equipment needs to be protected at all times during transportation, which is why we are continuously working to find new innovative ways to create custom cases and foam interiors. Located in Baltimore, Maryland, PSI is the only name you need to know when it comes to foam interiors.
