When hand-decorating each BuzzyBee honey container became too time-consuming, Jeffrey Hand, BuzzyBee’s inventor, turned to the new series XE 13 pad printing machine from Pad Print Machinery.

“He wanted to find a way to give each container a handsome finish plus keep his production and handling costs in check,” said Julian Joffe, president and founder of Pad Print Machinery.

Made of 100 per cent polyethylene, each container holds one pound of honey, has a wide base to prevent tipping, and has flat front and back areas for labeling.

“We used our new XE 13 running a combi-program with four axes to print two colours 360-degreees around the container,” Joffe explained. This process allows Hand to minimize handling of the BuzzyBee containers because the decorating is completed in one operation.
