While printed growing containers have become incredibly popular in the industry, making them a must-have marketing tool, the availability has been limited to growers utilizing round containers in their growing operations. This is because many commercial machines previously available on the market were optimized and engineered to print on cylindrical products, not flat.
Many growers successfully utilize square growing containers in their cultivations for propagating annuals such as seasonal flowers, herbs, and vegetables which are widely popular among home gardeners throughout North America.
Additionally, square growing containers provide incredible space efficiencies, feature tag slots for merchandising at retail, and easily de-nest. They can be used with a wide range of automated equipment, which has become necessary for many growers struggling with labor shortages.
However, until now, these growers could not capitalize on the features and benefits of printed growing containers and possibly lost market share to the competition in the process.
As demand for the ability to print on square growing containers amplified throughout the industry, The HC Companies understood that an investment in new printing technologies would be necessary to satisfy the legions of growers who rely on square growing containers in their operations.
In addition to providing custom printing services on many of our round greenhouse and nursery growing containers, The HC Companies now has the exclusive capabilities and technologies to custom print on all the square greenhouse growing containers we offer.
