Retail Packaging

Bespoke and innovative packaging for retail use.

Whether you are new to the market or an established brand, retail packaging is one of the biggest influencing factors when it comes to customers purchasing your product.

For many customers, retail packaging is the first time they interact with your brand, therefore ensuring your packaging encourages purchasing behaviour is vital.

At Saxon Packaging we have over 30 years’ experience in designing bespoke and standard packaging for retail use and know what encourages purchase behaviour. For a small investment to get your packaging looking, feeling and performing right, you can improve your profit margins, attract new customers and encourage repeat sales.

From standard one colour printed retail packaging solutions through to full-colour litho printed premium packaging boxes, we can design a fit-for-purpose, tailor-made packaging solution to deliver positive brand experiences to your customers.

We can also help you switch from single use plastics to more sustainable materials. Our sustainable retail packaging designs will enable you to remove plastic from the entire packaging process, helping you to achieve your sustainability targets. As well as being a sustainable solution, all our retail packaging is robust, reliable and high quality.

Frequent Questions
Q. Do I need to order a minimum quantity?

A. 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.

Q. Can you explain price per 1000?

A. 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.

Q. What are cutting forme and stereo costs?

A. 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.

Q. Do you hold stock of corrugated boxes, cases and cartons?

A. 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.

Q. Can you work with us to design a pack from scratch and bespoke to my needs?

A. 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.

Q. How do I know which print option is right for my requirement?

A. 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.
