Boxes, Cases & Cartons
Corrugated cardboard packaging is widely recognised as the go-to sustainable packaging solution. Corrugated cardboard is made up of three elements, concertina, fluting, evenly and firmly sandwiched between two layers of paper, giving the material its strength. At Saxon Packaging, we pride ourselves on being one of East Anglia’s most turned-to cardboard packaging manufacturers and are proud of our growing list of valued clients.
Along with bespoke packaging designs, we can manufacture most standard FEFCO recognised corrugated cardboard boxes, cases and cartons to any required quantity and to a high quality.
Our popular packaging solutions include standard transit boxes, perfect for packing, shipping or for storage. Plus, we’re proud to be many customers’ first choice for boxes with internal divisions made from cardboard for a more sustainable alternative to bubble wrap or plastic air pockets. We even offer bespoke packaging tape that can boost your branding so show your customers you’ve thought of everything when it comes to brand packaging. Whether you know exactly what you want from your packaging or need a helping hand in working out what would work best for your products, our experts are on hand to make sure you get the very most out of the packaging you choose.
From standard plain or printed transit and storage boxes through to photo-quality hi-res litho printed gift packaging solutions, we have an array of print processes and decorative print finishes and embellishments available, from single colour flexo printed boxes perfect for company name and logo, to full colour litho printed boxes which incorporate the use of CMYK colours for a full coverage design. Thanks to a range of print options, we’re able to produce fully customisable packaging solutions that offer safe shipping and luxury gift packaging with eye-catching designs, all of which can be enhanced with various print finishes and further embellishments, from embossing to foil blocking, to help promote both your brand and your product. So, whether you want striking designs or something more modest like a company logo, we’re here to help.

We don’t have a minimum order quantity. We have the ability to produce ‘one-offs’ and low volumes if required, but we do have cost-effective minimum order quantities which are determined by the area of material used, material type, style of box and print requirement.
If you have a price for 1000 boxes @ £550 / 1000, imagine it as a unit cost of 55p each. Likewise a quote for £700 /1000 equates at 70p each.
Cutting formes are used to cut the packaging into the correct shape. Stereos are used for flexo printed packaging. This enables the packaging to be printed bespoke to the client’s requirement. Both the ‘cutting forme’ and the ‘stereo’ belong to the customer.
We do not hold stock but we do hold materials and cutting tools to provide a fast turnaround on some of the most frequently used packaging lines.
Yes, we pride ourselves on working closely with our customers from consulting to design and through to the finished product. We have an in-house design team who are able to design packaging solutions specific to your requirements.
It all depends on the artwork complexity, number of colours required and quantity of packaging. Our infographic guide to print processes will help steer your required option, but a member of our sales team will always discuss the various options with you to ensure the print option is the most economical and of the required quality.
Along with standard print options, additional print finishes and embellishments are available to add further enhancements to both your product packaging and branding.
