LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
Here at Nationwide Packaging Services, Inc. we package various hardware products for fastener distributors, (nuts, bolts, screws, washers etc.) into heat sealed polybags. EXAMPLE: Say you buy something you have to assemble. Like a grill, toy, or a piece of inexpensive furniture. All the nuts, bolts, and screws for the product are mixed together in a little clear plastic polybag inside the box. That's what we do. Our customers send us the fasteners bulk and our automatic counters count out the required quantities of each fastener type, then dump them into an automatic bagging machine where the polybag is heat sealed and printed and the "kit" then falls into a box. We send the kits back to our customer, they throw the kit in with the product and off it goes to the stores. I know what your thinking, "so YOUR the guys that makes these kits which seem to be 1 screw short all the time". Actually, we're more guilty of throwing an extra in the bag for good measure. Anyway, we also do Military or MIL-SPEC packaging formally known as MIL-STD-2073 packaging for the Department of Defense (DOD). Everything that is shipped to the DOD has to be packaged a very specific way to ensure it can survive the rigors of shipping all over the world. These items can be packaged in a variety of mediums from polybags to water/vapor proof kraft style pouches to special weather proof boxes.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
I need a 1/2 page ad for a trade magazine called "The Distributors Link Magazine". www.linkmagazine.com The bulk of the half page would target fastener distributors. The Military packaging service we provide might be showcased in a corner of this 1/2 page ad like a bullet point. Kind of an "Oh by the way we also do MIL-STD-2073 packaging"
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
For this publication our target audience would be fastener distributors. You can check out www.linkmagazine.com and pull up any of their advertisers under "industry websites" to see what a fastener distributor does. Too see a competitor website who advertises in this publication look at www.componentpackaging.com
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
I like to see the actual product in an ad. Like a polybag or several with fasteners in them. Most people typically skim this publication, just flipping pages. So the ad would really have to jump out. I think a picture does that. However, I have no design ability at all so I am totally open to fresh ideas. For the Military Packaging bullet point I would like to see the same thing, military kits, possibly with faded pics of soldiers or tanks or something military looking as a back round.
The "savings guide" files I've attached was a mailer we used. I liked the fonts and the pics but I thought the jet was WAY too fake looking and the mailer was targeting military parts suppliers where this ad I need will be targeting fastener distributors. The pics could have used some retouching to clean them up a bit too.
The "news" file explains a little more of what we do and shows other pics of packaged products.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
I don't really like illustrations.
