Accurate Box Is Now Able to Produce Color-Changing Packaging

An example of how the photochromic inks work

Paterson, NJ – February 2021 – Accurate Box Company, a manufacturer of litho-laminated corrugated packaging, is now able to print color-changing inks on its packaging.  Using photochromic and thermochromic inks, Accurate Box’s packaging changes colors when exposed to the sun or to different temperatures.

These new inks are another way for companies to make their packaging stand out and WOW consumers.  The photochromic ink can be used on packaging to reveal promotions or coupon codes.  When tested with consumers, this ink drives purchase intent up by 39%.*  On the other hand, the thermochromic ink can be used to tell consumers when to put products back into the refrigerator.  “40% of consumers are consistently frustrated with the temperature of a product they buy when there is an expectation of hot or cold.  Temperature sensitive ink features can solve that problem.”*

In no way are the photochromic and thermochromic inks harmful to the environment.  Consumers can recycle the box after they are done using it since Accurate Box’s packaging is 100% recyclable. 

Accurate Box places great value in maintaining standards of quality and is constantly looking for new and innovative ways to help its customers.  Contact Accurate Box for questions on how these unique, color-changing inks work and to receive a quote.
