Elliott Packaging has seen a 25% rise in their printed film on the reel sales since the start of 2017. The film can be printed in up to eight colours and is available in a range of materials, including virgin grade high strength LD polythene and co-extruded (two layer) films. High barrier laminated films are also becoming more and more popular. Vertical, form, fill and seal machines are the typical type of machines that can run printed film on the reel.
