More than two years in the making, PacPrint 2022 will be the first opportunity for Spicers to showcase its huge selection of leading brands in-person, and the company is promising its stand will be the “ultimate pit stop for packaging, print and signage”.

Opening its doors on 28 June in Melbourne, the show will be an opportunity for Spicers’ customers to see the collaborative approach the supplier values, with the company bringing some of its key suppliers to meet industry businesses and key decision-makers. 

Spicers is a leading supplier of quality materials, equipment and solutions to the commercial print, labelling, packaging, signage, visual display, dye sublimation and architectural industries, and the company will be bringing solutions for all those sectors to the Melbourne show.

“Spicers will be launching Environs, our new Spicers Sustainability Pack, and introducing new brands, products and hardware at PacPrint,” said Wayne Hood, sign and display portfolio manager for Spicers. 

“It is exciting for Spicers to showcase our full portfolio, including coated, uncoated, specialty, self-adhesive and synthetic stocks for commercial print and digital media, and a range of high-quality packaging grades ideal for specific requirements – from grease-resistant, fridge safe, freezer safe and direct food contact safe products. 

“There will also be a huge range of sign and display consumables to explore, from Ace Screenboard and Ace Outdoor, to Corflute and Re-Board. 

“Visitors will also be able to see live vehicle wrap demos, featuring the 3M 2080 Wrap Film, the new 3M IJ 280 print wrap film, and the super-fast, labour-saving RollsRoller flatbed applicator, and chat to our product specialists about all these options, as well as a host of new hardware.” 

A highlight is sure to be the Green Spotlights, a range of sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions selected from the entire Spicers portfolio, to highlight important environmental product features and benefits. 

“We’re inviting visitors to come onto the stand and collect a range of samples from our commercial print, labelling, signage, visual display, dye sublimation and architectural range, so they can really see, touch and feel the world of solutions Spicers can offer,” Hood added. 

Visit Spicers at PacPrint on stand G02, which will co-locate with the Visual Impact Expo and the Label & Packaging Expo, from 28 June to 1 July at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
