“In addition to offering innovative, luxury folding carton packaging, what makes Arkay stand out is our personal relationships with our clients. At the end of the day, it’s about listening to our customers and working together to achieve their goals,” says Mitchell Kaneff, Chairman and CEO of Arkay.

Arkay has developed a number of proprietary technologies to offer clients an array of innovative options, such as Mica Pearls, which lend a pearlescent appearance to a carton and PermaWhite Stock, a cost-effective white material that resist fading and yellowing. Reticulated Coating lends a textured-like finish to cartons while Aperture Lamination creates a seamless window. Additionally, Arkay has developed technologies with cold foiling and Soft Touch applications. Bespoke hotel packaging decorating techniques also include embossing, stamping, lamination, flexolitho and textured finishes.
“A number of customers allow us to assist then in design,” notes Mr. Kaneff. Arkay prides itself on an in-house graphic design team that can work with a client to design and create eco-friendly packaging solutions, as well as its graphics.
