As an alternative to corrugated, ClubStak offers a performance-oriented paper alternative for primary warehouse club, mass market retail packaging.

BALA CYNWYD, PA—PaperWorks Industries, Inc. announces its launch of ClubStak, an innovative paper-based packaging solution designed to help brand owners and retailers improve the consumer experience, meet package performance requirements and drive sales growth.

ClubStak’s construction features an outer carton made from 100 percent coated recycled paperboard and an internal liner made with custom-selected, paper-based material to address specific application needs. The liner material is applied in a strategic orientation to add strength to the overall structure.

The result is a crush-resistant package that offers similar performance attributes to corrugated—such as strength, rigidity and stackability—but offers the high-quality graphics appeal of a folding carton.

“Quality and value are the cornerstones of the ClubStak solution. In most cases PaperWorks can develop a customized solution that uses less material, looks better on-shelf, and offers a lower total cost while meeting the retailers’ performance requirements,” says PaperWorks director of packaging business development David Gray.

The reinforced carton structure can be web or sheet-fed printed using offset or lithography. In addition, ClubStak can support holograms, film laminations, foil stamping and high-gloss coatings. Metallic, and other specialty inks, also can be used to heighten visual appeal. Because ClubStak is not fluted, there is no washboard printing effect, leaving behind only pristine, eye-popping graphics.

To aid in convenience, product marketing and merchandising efforts, ClubStak is available with value-added display configurations and features, such as handles, easy-open/recloseable tear strips and wide access/vertical dispensing spouts.

PaperWorks says that ClubStak is ideal for a wide variety of primary packaging applications, including food, beverage, household chemicals, personal care and healthcare.
