“We are honored that our products have been approved for inclusion in this esteemed library,” says Marcelo Passos, vice president of Geami. “This will introduce our product line to a larger audience of packaging designers.”
Using a patented process to convert ordinary kraft paper into a honeycomb web of angled cells when expanded, the size of Geami paper is 60 percent more than that of the original kraft paper. The resulting honeycomb web provides impact deflection and shock absorption better than foams, bubble wrap and air pillows of equal volume.
Designed as a sustainable packaging alternative for shipping fragile and breakable products, inclusion in the library opens the door to new markets and customers, explains Passos.
