This summer we were excited to supply and support award winning brand ‘Popcorn Shed’ with eye catching gift packaging to house their gourmet popcorn.
The company, which was co-founded by cousins Laura Jackson and Sam Feller won an artisan producer award at the BBC Good Food Show and a Great Taste Award at the Guild of Fine Food in 2016, and were stocked in Harrods just 3 months after launching.
When it came to packaging their popcorn Sam had an idea in mind of what he was after and took to Google for a list of packaging manufacturers. With Saxon Packaging coming up top he decided to give us a call.
“We found Saxon Packaging online initially and we got speaking to one of the sales reps, who it turns out used to work in the food business so knew a thing or two about packaging for food and drinks brands. It was great to talk to some in the know!” said Sam.
Popcorn Shed came to us with an original enquiry in September 2016 for transit mail packaging, following this success they came back to us in the Spring of 2017 looking for gift packaging. After trialling a few different gift packs all designed (by our in-house design team) to accommodate their products, Sam and Laura chose the three window flexographic printed gift packaging option.
When asked why Popcorn Shed chose to use a flexographic print for their gift packaging Sam replied “Flexographic printing represents excellent value for money when printing larger runs, and you can achieve a lot design-wise, provided you know the parameters before you set out the design brief” and we couldn’t agree more.
The gift packs were required to help Popcorn Shed secure a contract with an online retailer and to help grow the brand by offering a gift option. Sam and Laura recently exhibited at a Christmas gifting show and they “were a hit and completely sold out!”
“We are super happy with the quality of print and think the gift packs are great!” concluded Sam.
