STUDIO BRIEF 5 PACKAGING COMPANIES |
Considering this is hopefully going to actually be used in the real world and produced on a mass scale, I think I really need to get in touch with some companies for some advice as I don't have time to experiment with every material going until I find the most practical.
These are the companies George gave me but I don't really know if they are what I'm after, plus they aren't very local -
I think all they do is corrugated card... I don't want corrugated card.
