Cello Wrapping

The process of wrapping a product in a clear or printed cellophane film is referred to as cello wrapping, or “overwrapping”. This is a high speed operation primarily done on a high speed┬áhorizontal form, fill, and seal machine called a Dough-Boy.

Fin-Seal overwrapping, as this packaging type is often called, is popular for sampling programs where a sample product and a coupon are overwrapped, then shipped thru a mass mailing program.

Other typical cello wrapping applications include pet treats, spice pouches, baseball cards, refills, gum, candy, treats, cosmetics and perfume, coupons and many more. OPP film has effective odor, moisture and air barriers along with different thicknesses depending on the weight and type of product being packaged.

Assemblies Unlimited can source and procure clear or printed material for your contract packaging project in order to make sure the appropriate film is used for your specific project. Polypropylene film has a “crinkly” feel and a high gloss look especially when printed with bold colors.

All artwork is to be supplied by the customer in high resolution Adobe Illustrator files. If you are considering this type of pouching for your product you should realize that it will require a fairly large minimum production run, usually around 100K units.

  • Do you require lot or date codes?

Able to hit our very tight deadline!

We had a large inventory of cans that we needed relabeled with our new images. We spoke with over 10 companies across the US, all turned us away due to the labor that would be required to remove our existing labels. We were referred to Assemblies by another vendor of ours and I am sorry we even wasted time with any other contract packaging company. From the first day we met their team was in close communication from start to finish. They were also able to hit our very tight deadline we were requesting with no issues. They are very easy to work with, friendly, and took on a challenge with a smile. I look forward to many more projects with them.
