neutral  Kim Metzger: It would appear the asker doesn't need the difference between the English words, but the difference between the Danish words. When it's 9 am in Florida, it's 8 am in Mexico.

  -> tak, Jens

agree  Christine Andersen: It's material when it's a roll of plastic film, carton blanks or whatever in the store, and packaging when it's wrapped round the product. Bar codes can be pre-printed on the film etc.

  -> thanks, Christine

agree  Eliza-Anna

  -> thank you

agree  Daniella Dukes: I agree, but another possibility could be wrapping material - but then I suppose people would think it refers to wrapping paper.. Which it doesn't, in this context. Anyway, I agree with SwissTell. =)
