Sustainable Retail Packaging

Although the idea of sustainable retail packaging is not a ‘new’ concept by any means, Cadence Packaging Group is constantly inspired by agencies’ and company’s unceasing desire to create and innovate packaging that is reusable, recyclable, compostable, and everything in-between. We personally feel it is a very admirable and forward-thinking endeavor, and it’s a growing movement (no pun intended) that we are excited to take part in. In a time when some resources are becoming limited and harder to come…

Unique Retail Packaging Solutions

At Cadence Packaging Group, we love to think outside of the box – both literally and figuratively. Lately, we’ve been loving all of the creative and unique retail packaging examples we’ve been seeing both online and in the marketplace. We are especially inspired by retail packaging that takes advantage of its product in a humorous or clever way, while also successfully showcasing the product inside. Whether taking advantage of a unique die cut window (check out those awesome pasta boxes!),…

What’s Trending: Terrazzo

Attention Cadence Packaging Group blog readers! Have you seen? Have you heard? Terrazzo has made a comeback!   Originally made popular in the United States in the 1920s, this ‘confetti-effect’ technique has successfully resurfaced as a trend in 2018, being utilized as disposable party décor (we did mention the word ‘confetti’, after all), home décor, cosmetics packaging, jewelry + accessories, and more! We’ve been seeing a lot of ‘true-to-self,’ earth-toned examples online and in the marketplace, but we’re also loving…

What’s Trending: Pastel Packaging

Breathe in… breathe out… breathe in… breathe out… We feel so relaxed after soaking in and admiring all of the simplistic pastel packaging we’ve been seeing in the marketplace lately. How about you? The muted blues, yellows, pinks, and greens- complemented by basic black, white, or metallic typography- brings a level of bold-yet-soft sophistication to products that we here at Cadence Packaging Group just can’t seem to get enough of. At a time when people, places, and things can sometimes…

What’s Trending: Holographic Accents on Packaging

Try not to lose your balance when looking at all of this groovy holographic packaging! Whether it’s cosmetics, apparel, home goods, or company branding, holographic effects are making a bold, attractive statement this year. And what we at Cadence Packaging Group love most about this trend is that no matter what product it’s featuring or what material it’s on (or even the customer it’s intended for), it somehow all just… WORKS. We especially love the contrast of the bold, simplistic…

Pantone Color of the Year

Hey, Cadence Packaging Group blog viewers! Have you heard? (You probably have, but we’re going to mention it anyway, because we’re still excited about it). Pantone’s ‘Color of the Year’ is – drumroll, please – Ultra Violet! We here at Cadence Packaging Group think this vibrant, refreshing shade of purple is energizing and appealing in so many ways. It’s eye-catching, invigorating, and is an appealing contrast to the more subtle, desaturated, earthy tones of the last few years. 2017’s Pantone…
