If you want to
increase your products aesthetic value, well designed innovative packaging is
key. Good retail display packaging will
eliminate the need to package and repackage for retail use.
One of the market
drivers for good display packaging are the cost benefits for retailers. The
brand and product type should be easily identified by staff, which will reduce
the time taken to sort, open and display products. Because this increases efficiency of labour
it will positively improve the overall performance of the retail outlet. With a good print design, the display
packaging will aid brand recognition and help to increase sales.
Consultants have recently done just that and aided by their packaging
manufacture, launched a new packaging design for BirdsEye Inspirations range.
‘Brandon’s design uses
mouth-watering images of food on the front of pack, inspired by the editorial
style of food photography currently seen in food and lifestyle
Brandon’s work moves away from
the rest of the frozen fish category, strengthens the brand and creates an
iconic logotype icon reminiscent of restaurant signage to communicate the
premium quality of the product’. (Packaging Europe).
Not only does innovatively
printed packaging increase brand visibility and allow customers to locate
products quickly, if coupled with high quality packaging it increases the
in-store retail experience for consumers.
When a product is presented
attractively, coupled with enhanced brand recognition, good display packaging
facilitates the product selection, leading to impulsive purchasing.

Whether you are looking for your printed
packaging in corrugated cardboard, folding box board or rigid covered boxes,
you will find there is a huge variation of printing techniques available. Not
only do you have to find the right material to print on, the volume is also a
key factor in finding the right material and printing method for you.
Recent research suggests, one of the
biggest challenges buyers face in sourcing packaging is the difficulty in identifying
the most effective printing techniques to ask for when looking for a quotation,
and this can slow the whole process down.
At Packaging Supplies, we offer printing
methods such as flexographic, digital, litho laminating & screen printing,
which is not unlike many other packaging suppliers and manufactures. However, if the correct printing techniques are
not used on your packaging it can lead to unnecessary additional costs and

If you are looking for high end, presentation boxes or
bespoke boxes, but don’t have the volume or budget for a premium box such as a rigid
paper covered box, we offer some great alternatives that will make your
products stand out and give the look and feel of quality packaging.
Folding cartons can be manufacture with all manner of design
features and the printing options offer even further choice, for all budgets:
Digitally printed folding boxes – great for multiple print
variations or smaller runs, we can produce exceptional quality from our digital
printers and apply gloss or matt finishes.
The shorter lead times for digitally printed boxes also add to this
being a very attractive option.
Litho laminated folding boxes – superior quality and clarity
for intricate print design, options include gold or silver foiling, embossing
or debossing, gloss or matt finishes.
Litho laminated boxes are suited more to higher runs, this keeps the
unit costs down which off-set the tooling costs, and you won’t be disappointed
with the end result.
All folding carton boxes, whatever the design will be
supplied flat which saves on storage. They
can be easily ‘made up’ with a few simple folds of the board.
Variation in Design - Ideas
Depending on the overall design and function of the box, we
can offer variations to the design to make your life easier and speed up your
processes. For example, with a
self-locking box and lid, we can supply completely unglued for you to fold and
lock into place or we can supply these with a glued side wall option, meaning that
only two ends need making up and the whole process is much less time consuming.

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;

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.

for Ferrari to choose from.
Within 7 days these promotional printed cartons were designed, die cut, printed, hand glued and
delivered in time for the event. All thanks to the expert knowledge and
