IP Launches New Packaging Innovation: Bow Tie Shipper


Memphis, Tennessee based International Paper (IP) last week announced the development of a new, unique pack- aging innovation, the Bow Tie Shipper. This space-saving, patented design is intended to replace small, glued corru- gated shipping boxes. The Bow Tie Shipper can be considered a solution for many hand-assembly applications in eCommerce and pick and pack distribution segments. It was designed to meet the functional and sustainability needs of customers seek- ing resource friendly packaging with no glue joints. “The Bow Tie Shipper flips and folds in a matter of sec- onds, making construction quick and easy in a fast-paced packaging environment,” said Jeff Smith, IP’s Design Ser- vices Manager and RIT Packaging Design graduate. “With just three simple steps in hand assembly operation – flip, wrap and pack – the innovative design can remove pack- aging frustrations and improve distribution processes.” The Bow Tie Shipper design was developed as part of a “Small Box Design Challenge,” and the innovation team identified ideal markets for this original, hand setup de- sign. In addition to being used in pick and pack opera- tions, it also serves as a padded envelope substitute. The Bow Tie Shipper can also be easily configured for multiple sizes.
