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.
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
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.
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.

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.”*

Light Use - If you need to apply tape to polythene,
non- recycled or pure Kraft outer paper packaging then there is the opportunity
to potentially save money. You can go basic which is exactly what this tape is.
What needs to be made clear is that many of the cheaper tapes are not of the
required quality to stick to recycled materials, which many outer papers of boxes
are made of.
Packaging Supplies top tip: Try and monitor
how much tape you are using, you could be applying more tape because of fear of
securing your parcel or pack properly, this can be uneconomical. A change to a
better grade could give you an immediate cost saving.
General Tape - Polypropylene
General tape is the product that is used in
most Businesses due to it being able to be applied to most surfaces. This tape
is only fractionally more expensive than the above solution. If this product is
used in the correct manner it can result in using less tape and therefore
result in a cost saving.
Heavy Use - Vinyl
This would be recommended when boxes are of
a heavy quality. We like to class a heavy quality as a box required to carry a
weight of about 15kg and above. The added advantage of this quality tape is
that it has a much better and consistent performance over a wide temperature
range, whether this is while the tape is being applied or when the packed
product is being stored.
Cross Weave – Is an extremely strong and
durable tape. It is cross weaved with two directional glass fibres. It can be
used as a high security seal or an alternative to Polypropylene Strapping.
Low noise Tape – If your operation is a big
and noisy packing environment, you need to think about your employees in their
day to day workplace. For a small
addition cost this tape can make for a happier workforce.
Fragile & Printed Tape – When sending
items that are breakable, printed ‘fragile tape’ could be for you, all standard
sizes available in this style.
We also stock Caution and Handle with care
Tape from stock.
Custom Printed Tape – Create your own
branded Tape, you can add your 1 or 2 Colour logo. This is a very simple cost
effective way for branding, an option that will make your marketing department
very happy. This is becoming a very popular product, along with raising brand awareness
it is a very good tamper proof deterrent.
