At one point or another as a designer, you will work with healthcare providers or medical device manufactures.
At Corporate Image, we have worked with many designers and healthcare facilities to develop patient friendly and beautiful information kits. Whether you are creating patient information packets and medical supply information kits everyday or for the first time, we would like to share what we see happening in medical information kits.
From custom presentation binders, pocket folders, 3-ring binders and boxes, we see the trends as they happen.
Come check out our page on the trends we see in patient and medical information kits! We update as we get new projects in, so it is worth checking in regularly!
Sorry to get all Buzzfeed headline on you, but some projects are so special you just have to share.
We worked with Q2 down in Austin, Texas. What resulted is kind of special!
It starts with a corrugated slipcase with another corrugate box inside. Both of these are printed, laminated with soft touch laminate with lines of spot UV.
When you pull out the inside box, you have a tray with a paperboard box resting inside. This custom box matches exactly with the corrugate from the printing to the soft touch lamination and the spot UV.
Under that box is a book. A present in a present.
But wait. you are not done.
Inside the paperboard box is a pocket folder with a box pocket. This folder acts like a four flap enclosure (yes, one of our sister companies is Archival Products and in preservation they use a lot of four flap enclosures). Open the custom pocket folder and find a brochure (whose main image peeks out at you from a custom die cut in the folder).
Scroll down and check out the great design. Wouldn’t you be happy to get this presentation?

For all of you who came to HOW and saw us at booth 215 it was a pleasure to meet you and hang out! Here are a few of our photos of HOW and Boston:
We enjoyed meeting everyone and for those who were not there, a lot of our working conversations trended around sustainable 3-ring binders, digitally printed binders, glue-less pocket folders and the recyclable binder, folder and box options. ( If you want a small glue less pocket folder sample – let us know!)
But we also covered the weather, coffee, paper options, crazy things all you designers are working on, the US census (great meeting you all!), Iowa and a whole lot more.
Thanks for all the great talks HOW Design Live 2014!
Versatile Marketing and Sales Kits
Sometimes you need to present information, samples and instruction books and want to tie them together with a unified look, quality and design. Corporate Image has the packaging experts to help you with what you need.
Sales boxes are a valuable option when you are looking to present your materials whether you are showcasing product of just information. Why?

Case Study #2: Health Care Patient Information kits
Delta Dental: Health plan information for multiple plans.
Delta Dental put together a phenomenal patient information kit that is humorous, beautiful and organized. With two pocket folders, and a series of tabbed folders for different health plans, this custom box makes healthcare look fun. For that alone they should be applauded.
Whether you are designing sales and marketing kits for the healthcare, construction, energy or financial sectors, these custom boxes can help keep your information organized with consistent branding.
Should your Sales Boxes and Marketing Kits be corrugate boxes or paper board?
When you are looking for boxes for sales kits, information packets or sample marketing kits it helps to know more about your materials, possibilities and printing options.
The world of boxes is vast – do you need a corrugate box to help architectural samples or a heavy paper stock that can hold patient information kits or a bottle of perfume?
Looking for a sales box or marketing kit but not sure what you need?
You have a few choices and if you want to stick to recyclable materials the best are corrugated boxes or paperboard boxes. These both have advantages so if you need a custom marketing kit, sales box or sample presentation kit a quick read may be in order.
Lets break it down.
E-flute, single faced, double wall – all of these are corrugates and all of them have interesting properties and uses for your design projects.
The main thing you get from corrugates is strength. If you need a sturdy box to hold samples or need to convey a greater sense of solidity with your brand, corrugates may be the way to go.
Printing and more:
The best quality printing (4cp +) is done on a C1S (coated 1 side) sheet which is run through an offset press and then adhered to the corrugate. There are also options of foil stamping and debossing and direct printing.
Die Cuts and Custom Dies
Corruagate cuts well, so the shape of your box, window cuts, custom closures and flaps are all possibilities.
Printed heavy paper stocks can be made into an amazing array of boxes for anything from patient information kits for healthcare to financial portfolio or organizational kits and more.
Customizing Paperboard Boxes:
These stocks print like a dream, so you have the same wide range of options from 1 color PMS to 4cp+ and spot varnishes.
Printing two sides is also not a problem, allowing your to have the inside of your box as well branded as the outside.
Die Cuts and Custom Dies:
Corporate Image has a wide range of sales box and paperboard box dies to choose from already, but if you have a need for custom windows or looks, you can work with our package designer to get what you need.
Marketing materials set an emotional tone for a company, balancing the need to stand out, make a statement and supporting a brand.
Seeing how other designers have solved problems can spark you on your way to making your already great project better. From corrugate boxes to a set of 3-ring binders explaining corrugates, custom pocket folders and marketing kits for flooring, these designers faced projects with innovative, creative thinking.
