Information Packaging adds additional equipment to handle increased demand


(Macedon, N.Y.  June 3, 2016) – Information Packaging Corp. (IPC), a manufacturer of specialty envelopes, continues to experience growth of their ArmorShield®, RFID blocking, card sleeve line.  They are the leading manufacturer of sleeves and envelopes designed to shield unauthorized access to information stored on a variety of contactless card applications; including the U.S. Passport Card, U.S. Green Card, Enhanced Drivers Licenses (EDL), Department of Defense ID cards, and numerous credit/bank cards.


With EMV and Durbin Amendment initiatives, more bank cards will contain chips and contactless technology thus are vulnerable to skimming and fraud.  ArmorShield® Sleeves provide an additional level of protection at the consumer level to prevent unauthorized access to information on those cards.


In May, Information Packaging purchased additional equipment to manufacture sleeves and envelopes in support of the card industry.  Information Packaging now has equipment capacity to manufacture 15 million sleeves/envelopes per month.  “This additional capacity allows us to keep our short lead times whether your order is 1000 envelopes or 1 million sleeves,” says Dave Young, Vice President of Sales.  Young continued, “We keep things very customer focused.  Lead times are kept short and the additional equipment increases our flexibility with sizes, styles, materials, lead times, and quantities.”


In addition to traditional paper and Tyvek® material substrates, Information Packaging has three materials to secure your identity:  ArmorShield®, ArmorShield® TX2, and ArmorShield® Economy.  ArmorShield®, a Tyvek®-based laminate, is durable and resistant to tears, punctures, moisture and chemicals.  ArmorShield® TX2, with twice the Tyvek®, is twice as durable.  ArmorShield® Economy is a paper-based laminate providing a lower cost alternative without sacrificing security.


All ArmorShield® sleeves provide shielding for ISO 14443/15693 and EPC Gen 1/Gen 2 contactless smart card and any contactless card that operates at 13.56 MHz and above.
