Triangular Postal Tubes

by Admin

The traditional round postal tubes have been the same for years, but now a new kind of triangular postal tube is becoming more popular. 

With all the benefits of the traditional postal tube, the triangular design has many additional benefits and is now the preferred solution for the courier network.  Here are some of the reasons why;
  • Supplied flat packed, so they take up very little storage space
  • Quick and easy to pack and assemble
  • Can be stacked and strapped neatly to a pallet once packed
  • No problems with passing through label readers
  • No rolling around
  • Easily branded with your company logo
Triangular postal tubes are much easier to print on than the traditional round postal tubes. With 3 flat sides the triangular postal tubes can be printed with logo’s and text or even printed entirely with a specific colour or pattern.  We use different printing techniques to achieve different finishes, such as flexo, screen printing or litho laminating.

We can make to varying widths and lengths and the triangular tubes can be made with different features, such as tuck in tabs and/or peel and seal closures.

Bottle Packaging


 Our range of Beer Boxes and Brewery Packaging should make this easy.

 Don’t worry brewers we haven’t forgotten about you, far from it. We feel we are a perfect fit for your requirements. First things first  let’s talk about the beer carry boxes that are in demand within this industry.


Transit Beer boxes:

Without a doubt the most important and commonly used beer box is the 24-bottle box with dividers. This we carry as a standard pack. This same style of box and dividers can be used for a variety of different size bottle packs. With no extra cost it is something that we can customize for you.

Can the Dividers come Assembled?

Let’s face it, nobody wants to stand there making up dividers all day. There are a lot more important tasks to be performed during your day. We can supply them assembled, so they just pop open and slot into the outer case. Please just let us know your requirements. 

Can I get my logo printed on these boxes?

The large majority of the breweries that we look after have a 1 colour flexo print on their boxes, but we have many print options available which you can find more about here. So the only start up cost is the paying for the printing stereo, which is a first time only fee, if you want it printed. We normally suggest, get your self up and running, adding artwork is very simple.

Presentation beer boxes:

We have covered the transportation aspect of brewery packaging, Now on to the important stuff, the boxes that are going to help sell your product making it desirable.

Die cut boxes are made for this sort of packaging, making the boxes in these styles mean additional features can be added. Like a carry handle or a cut out on the front of the box to show your fancy bottle labels. The feel can be altered depending on your product; it can be brown or white Kraft outer finish with various different printing options depending on your budget and usage.

Cigarette Packaging Update | Folding Carton | Retail Packaging | Packaging Supplies blog

by Adam


The time of cigarette packaging as we know it will change forever, the new tobacco directive will mean warning text, photos and information will cover 65% of the back and front of the cigarette packs. Companies have 12 months to sell all over stock and 4 years to sell all menthol cigarettes, which have been banned all together.

“This was a devastating defeat for big tobacco,” said Deborah Arnott, chief executive of Action on Smoking and Health, whose evidence submitted to the court was also shared with MPs before they debated the introduction of the regulation. “First Australia, now the UK and France, have gone ahead with removing all branding, except the name in a standard-size font. Coming up fast behind are Ireland, Hungary, Norway, Canada and New Zealand, with others soon to follow. Before too long, glitzy, brightly coloured and highly branded tobacco packs will be a relic of the past, which children born today will never see.”*

The reason for this blog is to introduce folding carton board as a packaging material perfect for gift packaging or retail packaging. The cigarette packaging is the most famous and iconic use of folding cartons within packaging.


What is Folding Carton Packaging?
