Creative Retail Packaging recently opened its first west coast office in downtown Seattle. The Houston-based, family-owned business aims to support west coast clients, many of whom are facing changes to their programs due to plastic bag ban legislation.

We work hand-in-hand with our clients to ensure they are compliant with plastic bag ban criteria, yet still maintain an excellent packaging program.

Creative Retail Packaging, a 30-year-old custom packaging, design, and logistics company, recently opened its first west coast office in downtown Seattle.

The Houston-based, family-owned business aims to target west coast retail, restaurant, business-to-business, and specialty industries, many of whom are facing changes to their programs due to plastic bag ban legislation.

Slated to go into effect July 1, 2012, Seattle’s plastic bag ban will outlaw single-use plastic bags that are less than 2.25 mils thick and will require a fee of $0.05 for each disposable carryout bag.

“Seattle is known for its green business initiatives and entrepreneurial energy. We really admire that about this city and considered it when expanding our company,” said Kathy Bintz Fertitta, Principal and CEO of CRP. “So far, we’ve experienced a great reception from northwest businesses that understand the role packaging plays in both marketing and the environment. We have the knowledge, creativity and sources to develop brand-appropriate solutions that comply with the new legislation requirements.”

Executive Vice President John Salamunovich explains having legislation-approved packaging does not mean that quality and creativity need to be compromised. “We work hand-in-hand with our clients to ensure they are compliant with plastic bag ban criteria, yet still maintain an excellent packaging program.”

CRP has three divisions that work both independently of and collectively with each other. CRP Design Studio offers creative services including branding, web design and packaging design. CRP Packaging sources packaging from factories both domestically and internationally. CRP Logistics warehouses and distributes products from its three warehouses in Nevada, Texas and North Carolina to ensure lower outbound freight costs, delivery time and carbon emissions.
