    1. A Methodology for Determining the Proper Point Size for Display Type on Packaging by Means of the Package's Proportions (pages 921–931)

      The point size of display text was evaluated relative to package proportion via a preference test. The results of the study determined a preferred ratio, and discusses the influence of gender on package typographic size. It was determined that the preferred point size for type on tested packages was 10/12 of the package width.

    2. The Effect of Full Body Versus Partial Body Graphic Labelling on Beverage Packaging (pages 933–943)

      The shelf impact of full versus partial body graphic labels on beverages was examined and evaluated through purchase selection and eye-tracking data. Data revealed that both label sizes drew an equivalent amount of visual attention; however, consumers selected partial body labels more often than full body labels, regardless of the flavour of the beverage or their age group. Paper presents a unique methodology of comparing attention between the two label styles on plastic beverage bottles.

    3. The Effect of Stretch Wrap Prestretch on Unitized Load Containment (pages 944–961)

      The three main factors affecting the stability of a palletized load that is unitized by stretch wrapping mechanism are the type of unitized load, wrapping configuration and shipping method. The study showed that containment force is generally higher at the top and bottom than the middle section of the unitized load. There is no evidence suggesting an association between initial containment force and different levels of prestretch.

      Measured and predicted lag times for n-alkanes at temperatures between 20 °C and 100 °C for a 12 µm polyethylene terephthalate film.

    2. The Effect of Concave Base Shape Elements on the Three Dimensional Forming Process of Advanced Paperboard Structures (pages 975–986)

      Article first published online: 9 JUL 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/pts.2089

      Three dimensional forming of paperboard to structures with concave shape sections at the bottom geometry is a challenge but turned out to be possible. In the concave geometry, considerable tensile load and strain appear in the material. The straining can be supported through a delivery of material from adjoining convex sections. The material displacement in concave sections causes parallel wrinkles in the wall showing that a defined reduction of stiffness through creasing in this section could improve the forming process.

      • Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and MAP + CO2 emitter inhibited the bacterial growth in fresh reindeer meat.
      • Lowest liquid loss in reindeer meat in modified atmosphere packages with CO2 emitter
      • Longer shelf life of reindeer meat with MAP/MAP + CO2 emitter compared with vacuum
