Here at Packaging Supplies Ltd, we offer a large range of shipping boxes and shipping supplies which we supply throughout the UK. With our knowledge of packaging, built over the last thirty-seven years, we have created an extensive online packaging materials shop with fast UK delivery.
Cardboard packaging is a big part of what we do. We have a large stock range of single wall & double wall cardboard packaging boxes. Theses stock boxes are in the standard 0201 style where the top & bottom flaps meet. These shipping boxes are versatile and used for all kinds of shipping and storage — they are simple to erect and quickly secured by taping closed the flaps. We also stock a range of die cut boxes which have more specific functions and purposes — such as postal and mailing boxes, gable boxes, book boxes and cardboard trays.
This is only an introduction — please contact our team now for any custom boxes and custom requirements that you have. Custom cardboard packaging is where we excel, with additional bulk discounts, stock holding, remote ordering and next day call off available.
Making sure your goods get to their destination in perfect condition is paramount to any business. Where applicable we have indicated the Royal Mail PiP to help you choose the right size of shipping boxes. Use our experience to help you make your decision. For more advice, please pick up the phone.
Packaging Supplies’ large range of shipping boxes and mailing packaging is tailored to suit every packing, shipping and mailing project. Our range includes small padded envelopes that fit through the letterbox, postal tubes and larger postal and mailing boxes.
Packaging Supplies offers a variety of polythene bags in all shapes and sizes. As well as clear polythene bags and cellophane bags for product display, we offer grip seal bags and bubble bags, carrier bags for all retail budgets and mailing bags which are essential for mail order businesses. For companies that want to ship and protect a wide range of product sizes, we have layflat tubing and all the heat sealing equipment needed to complete your packing operation.
Protective packaging and custom made boxes go hand in hand and it’s important to Packaging Supplies to get the right combination for your packaging set up and products. We can also help to save packing costs by making a custom box and fittings suitable for an individual product or streamlining a range of products into one box with a selection of fittings.
Void space within a box can be a recipe for disaster and will put unnecessary pressure on the structure of your shipping box. Therefore Packaging Supplies offer a range of standard void fill options such as bubble wrap, polystyrene or paper packing peanuts and Tardis paper.
Our high-quality bubble wrap and bubble bags are available to purchase online, Bubble pouch machines are also available — please get in touch. For those with environmental quotas, we have 100% biodegradable Eco Flo, Tardis Paper and Paper Nuts.
Packaging Supplies supply a large range of corrugated paper rolls which can be used to wrap products to protect them and act as void fill.
Paper Nuts and Tardis Paper are our new and alternative “green” void fill products — meaning they are recycled, recyclable, reusable, compostable, biodegradable and made from renewable resources!
Polythene as a packaging material has a large range of functions, protecting or wrapping product within shipping boxes. Polythene bags represent a large proportion of our bags section. Whether it is polythene bags, grip seal bags or polythene sheeting — we have it covered.
Pallet covers and pallet top sheets both fall within the polythene category and we have all the pallet accessories that go with them — such as strapping, stretch film and heat shrink equipment. In addition, you may want to look at our pallet edge guards and corner protectors.
By safely securing your palletised loads your operation will incur fewer damages and show more professionalism. We have all the packaging supplies and equipment needed to do this including stretch film, shrink wrap, strapping, edge protectors and even the wooden pallets themselves.
For those more established companies, we offer pallet wrapping machines however, these are best purchased after discussing your exact requirements with our experienced team.
Finding the right packaging tape can be a real headache, so we try to make this process easier. Please see our Packing Tape guide below:
This guide goes through polypropylene tape, coloured tape, low noise tape and vinyl tape and matches them with the function they are best suited to your shipping boxes and environments. Tape in the packaging world can be made from a range of packaging materials.
Custom printed tape is also available, it’s a low cost way to reinforce your brand identity and is quick and easy to order through our online shop or by getting in touch with the team.
Strapping is vital for bundling products or safely securing palletised loads. Strapping comes in various forms: polypropylene strapping, PET strapping, strapping kits, steel strapping — and all the strapping machines and tools that go with it!
Very easy to deal with and nothing was too much hassle, no matter how big or small your order was. Head and shoulders above the competition, a lot of which didn’t even bother to respond until weeks later.
It’s always a great pleasure to work with Packaging Supplies LTD team! Fast and easy booking and great customer service! Lisa and Nigel were very helpful each time we placed an order and patient when we wanted to make some changes. We will definitely use their services in future and would highly recommend this company to anyone!
Fantastic company to work with: they supported me through several twists and turns while we sorted out the final size/shape/type of packing we needed.
Managed to squeeze us in before Xmas as well despite being busy. Recommended.
Fantastic service all round. We had a tight deadline due to issues with a previous packaging supplier. Packaging Supplies did their upmost to help us meet the deadline and we were successful.
This was our first time as a business creating visually nice packaging for our products and Packaging Supplies helped us with all aspects of the process.
In the late 1970’s two friends and colleagues, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton, saw a gap in the market for a different type of packaging company. At the time other businesses were selling custom made boxes and stocked packaging consumables, but Tim & Stewart wanted to offer more than that. They wanted to give their clients additional services such as warehouse storage and the ability to ‘call off’ their packaging as and when it was required…
