When a company needs to locate professionals to design packaging, there are a number of alternatives. The Package Design Council publishes an annual membership directory that lists the names, addresses, and phone numbers of packaging professionals, broken down by design and industry specialty. The reference costs $125 and is published in January.

Also available is Packaging Magazine's annual Supplier Source Guide, which provides an alphabetical listing of suppliers, associations, contract packagers, consultants and design firms.

For further information consult the Package Design Council Membership Directory available from Package Design Council International, Herndon, VA. Phone: (703) 318-7225.
