Safety is an important topic that may be taken for granted. Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets up guidelines to protect us in many aspects. What may be considered safe for one group of people may be harmful to another group. For example, items which will be used or played with by children may require different safety measures than those designed for adults.
TigerPress provides a variety of services with regard to safety in the field of printing. Boxes that may come in contact with food have different requirements than those which may contain food that are already packaged in plastic bags. Step one is knowing the requirements for the safety of your products. Step two is to find suppliers which can adhere to those requirements. TigerPress will work with you in any aspect of your project requirements to insure you are in compliance with safety guidelines. Below are some of the services TigerPress offers for the safety of printed products:
FDA approved inks and coating: Printed products that come in contact with foods must adhere to FDA standards for the material, inks, and varnishes. TigerPress offers, on request, FDA approved paper board, inks, and coating.
Child safety: Child safety requirements are different from those of adults. These requirements consider that a child may put products into his/her mouth. This would take into account what the product is made of and what raw materials are used. In some cases, you may be required to obtain a child safety certificate for your product in order to market your product for children.
If you wish to insure the safety of your products, please contact your TigerPress representative with your requirements and see how we can assist you in achieving your safety goals. Please note that understanding and meeting the safety requirements is your responsibility. TigerPress can help in producing materials to your specifications.
