The packaging engineer must begin to collect data from all the team members at the beginning of a labeling project in order to select and specify the best material and label supplier for the project. If all requirements are fully documented, this information will provide suppliers all the information needed to recommend the best material option and an accurate quotation for the project.
The information required is summarized below, listing all the areas of consideration where information is to be provided by team members. The lists contain information that applies to all types of labeling formats and applications, and are intended to be used for new package designs. No individual labeling project will require everything listed.
