Sports Packaging Idea: The FlashPad

Sports packaging

Minnesota is in the spotlight when it comes to major sporting events. Coming off of a successful Super Bowl in January 2018, we'll see the NCAA Men's Final Four tournament in 2019 and the X Games into the foreseeable future. It's no surprise that cities who host the Super Bowl tend to see the investment pay off in major economic dividends into the future. Once the country sees a region in a new light, it becomes popular for conferences and other events. As a proud Minnesota company, we're throwing our hat in the ring to be the go-to sports packaging provider.

Sports packaging can take variety of forms. Whether a company is tying in custom boxes to a brand activation strategy, or a clubhouse needs luxury packaging for season ticket holders, Sunrise Packaging in Blaine, Minnesota can design and produce it. We work closely with all of our customers to deliver innovative packaging, tailored to the unique needs of the project. And with our varied portfolio, chances are we know not only how to create it, but can advise on other features as well.

For example, our FlashPad is one of our flagship products. It's a versatile packaging option that we originally created with flash drives in mind, but quickly saw the potential for to hold... Well, just about anything within reason. It's the perfect way to glow up sports tickets, gift cards, even conference tourney invites (see below).

Sports Packaging for USA Basketball

USA Basketball is the national governing body for men's and women's basketball in the USA. Their work encompasses not just fielding, training and hosting basketball teams nationwide, but also developing youth initiatives and referee training.  It's a nonprofit organization focused on providing the best service and assistance to one of the country's most popular sports.

When USA Basketball needed USB packaging for their congratulatory gift to teams earning a bid to a tourney, we knew the FlashPad would be a perfect fit. And not for obvious reasons.

Part of what makes the FlashPad so versatile is the simplicity of the design paired with interchangeability. The pad itself can be made of different materials, from foam to cardboard. This allows it be malleable to the product which it needs to hold. The outer portions of the sports packaging can be designed to specifications of the customer. For USA Basketball, we used a matte lamination with digital printing. Digital printing reproduces branding with high quality, creating a true sense of excitement for the recipient!
