(West St. Paul, MN – June 28, 2013) Tapemark is very pleased to announce that its Snapplicator™ packaging won the 2013 World of Wipes (WOW) Innovation Award® from INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry. The WOW Innovation Award recognizes and rewards innovation across the entire wipes value chain that utilizes nonwoven fabrics in a way that expands their usage. Nominated products demonstrated advancements in one or more of the following categories: Creativity, Novelty of Approach, Uniqueness, and Technical Sophistication. The award was presented during the WOW 2013 convention held June 17-20 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The winning product, Tapemark's patented Snapplicator™ packaging, provides a convenient applicator for "no touch" unit-dose application of a lotion or ointment. Tapemark’s Snapplicator keeps hands clean while spreading a precisely measured amount of a lotion or ointment where needed. The Snapplicator features a hinged non-woven applicator that pops up to stand out three-dimensionally from the package when opened, and for an added bonus, the unopened Snapplicator lies flat for ease of packaging. Snapplicator supports prescription and OTC drugs as well as consumer and household products.
