Shelf Ready Packaging

Shelf ready packaging designed for ease of shelf placement, display and visual disruption.

There has been significant growth in the demand for shelf ready packaging (otherwise known as SRP). This multipurpose packaging solution helps your packaging work how you want, from opening via a tear strip to helpfully placed hand holes, to reinforcing your brand and protecting your products.

The range of shelf ready packaging is hugely varied and encompasses packaging that features opening techniques including a wide range of perforation styles and tear strips.

Shelf ready packaging must meet guidelines set by the Institute of Grocery Distribution, which means it all has five things in common – it’s easy to identify, open, merchandise, shop and dispose of. We can help you navigate the guidelines and create packaging that your customers appreciate.

What’s more, available in corrugated cardboard, our shelf ready packaging is a more sustainable alternative to plastic packaging.

We offer bespoke and standard FEFCO styles of shelf ready packaging all available in a range of print options. Whether you choose to wow your customers with litho printed packaging or re-affirm your brand identity with flexo and digital printed packaging, our in-house design team can help you design a shelf ready packaging solution that is tailor-made to your products, whilst complying with the requirements of the intended stockists and retailers.

Our shelf ready packaging can be customisable with features such as perforations, vents, tear strips and hand holes to create product packaging ready to be displayed on the shelf and designed specifically to help raise brand awareness, optimise shelf presence, and increase sales.

Frequent Questions
Do I need to order a minimum quantity?

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.

Can you explain price per 1000?

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.

What are cutting forme and stereo costs?

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.
