When we were approached by Rob Hallifax (budding entrepreneur) and asked to supply packaging for his new innovative product we jumped at the chance. At the time Rob had received substantial support via a Kickstarter campaign and was able to start making his business come to life – The Ockham Razor Co.
Born out of desire to create a beautiful, simple razor that gives a great shave and is easy to use, The Ockham Razor Co. were looking for a box that would complement their great product.
Originally asked for a box to house the razor, we had to dig a little deeper to truly understand the purpose of the box; if it were to be mail-safe, recyclable, which print finishes they would like etc.? We took pleasure in guiding Rob on which products would best suit his requirement, as to us at Saxon Packaging, it’s important that our customers receive the best service and utilise our nearing 30 years of experience.
“You guys have been really helpful” Rob Hallifax
After seeking further information, we recommended to Ockham Razor Co. they use the 150 Kraft/150 Test E-Flute material (fully recyclable and made from approximately 70% recyclable papers) due to the size required and the need to print directly onto the material, and to use a standard style box. They were happy to proceed with this and we devised a sample for them to see.
Rob, after receiving the sample, sent into our in-house packaging design studio a 3D print of the razor and asked if we were able to design the packaging so that it would fit and hold the razor itself – of course we can!
We adapted the original standard style box and the end result was bespoke design packaging for Ockham Razor Co. meeting their needs and requirements using 150 Kraft/150 Test E-flute and printed using one colour Flexo.
“Packaging arrived this week. We’re thrilled with them!” Rob Hallifax
We we’re delighted to have worked with Ockham Razor Co. on this project, and look forward to continuing to do so.
