The growth of online retail and changes in modern consumer behaviour has raised the bar when it comes to eCommerce packaging. It is essential for your packaging to protect its contents and leave your customer with a good experience.
We work closely with online retailers and other popular eCommerce platforms to ensure that we keep up to date with the industry’s latest cardboard packaging innovations. Our in-house packaging design team can design eCommerce packaging to perfectly fit your products and make sure they reach your customers in one piece, whilst offering a sustainable packaging solution that uses minimal materials for less waste. With our sustainable eCommerce packaging solutions, you can begin to reduce your environmental impact and show your customers that you’re a business that cares about the planet and your impact on it.
When it comes to packaging, there isn’t a one-size fits all solution. That’s why we offer a range of popular packaging solutions, including self-locking FEFCO 0427 style boxes that are a strong and sturdy solution for postal packaging, plus double-walled boxes, single bottle eCommerce packs, courier safe transit boxes and much more.
From simple designs with your company logo with easy to open tear strips through to intricate pieces of artwork with multiple perforations and tape; we can provide packaging and print finishes to facilitate a fantastic, frustration-free, unboxing experience.
We are also able to offer Amazon FFP and ISTA Certification via our Experience Centre. That means your products will adhere to Amazon’s Frustration Free Packaging standards.

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.
