Shaun White Would’ve Taken Home the Gold If He Had Used Our Corrugated Snowboard

February 20, 2014


We’re all about innovative thinking here at Ernest Packaging Solutions, but sometimes a test comes along that is just outrageous. And frankly, we love it. Signal Snowboards approached Ernest with a unique proposition: They wanted a snowboard that was made of paper and was totally disposable, biodegradable and earth-friendly to be featured in their Every Third Thursday video series.

We never shy away from a tough project, so Mike Martinez, director of consulting services, and a team that included our own President Tim Wilson accepted the challenge. The results?

Now that is a package-engineering showing for the ages! If only Team USA would have approached us earlier, we probably could have helped them bring home a few more gold medals – and we could have helped protect their new jewelry coming back from Sochi, too.

Want to work with a packaging solutions provider that knows how to tackle any challenge you may have and have fun doing it? Ernest Packaging Solutions is the partner you need to keep your packaging moving forward. Contact us today and let us know how we can help you.
