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.

Jim and his team at Assemblies Unlimited saved my project! I am not being overly dramatic, that is the literal truth. The product was difficult from the beginning and there were many challenges, but Assemblies overcame them all. We had a launch deadline that was impossible and Jim made it happen. We shipped on time and the customer was thrilled. Our product looks fantastic and we couldn't be happier. If you are looking for a full turn key operation, then Assemblies Unlimited is your team. They handle it all. Item setup, boxes, printing, production, material sourcing, packaging, and shipping. That is exactly what they did for my company. You cannot go wrong with Assemblies Unlimited. Ask for Jim, he will do everything in his power to make your project a success.
