Packaging Printing


Creating Better Brand Awareness for Your Clients & Target Market Audience

Packaging buyers, marketers, product and brand managers alike all know the importance of branded packaging. They are always looking to use print to their advantage and help increase product sales. We have always seen printed retail packaging on the shelves in shops, but with the meteoric rise of e-commerce and online retailers, printed box packaging is becoming increasingly more visible. It is now recognised as a further way online retailers can connect with their end customers and is, therefore, an important consideration when selecting an appropriate shipping box.

The Advantages of Printed Box Packaging

By incorporating custom printed boxes and packaging in your route to market, the end clients’ “unboxing experience” can be made more positive and memorable. Furthermore, printing your boxes appropriately and effectively, represents a huge marketing opportunity, giving a chance for you to build greater consumer brand awareness combined with increased loyalty.

We offer many printing techniques and our print capabilities cover all types of packaging and levels of client budget. Depending on the material and volume, a range of additional features can be added when printing — including foil blocking, spot UV varnishes, embossing/debossing and matt or gloss over lamination.

Lithographic Custom Printed Boxes

This very versatile printing process can be used on many different types of cardboard and board materials, producing a premium looking luxury, custom printed box. The print quality achievable is exceptional and photographic holding fine details or tones.

Flexographic Custom Printed Boxes

With low set-up and running costs, Flexographic printing is a very cost-effective and popular way to customise your corrugated packaging. Print options available include using from one to four colours. The print quality is not as superior as lithographic print and this is reflected in the price.

Silk Screen Custom Printed Boxes

A traditional printing style that produces sharp, clean text and images. Silk Screen printing is mainly used to make custom printed boxes where bold and distinct branding is required. The level of image quality achievable lies somewhere between lithographic and flexographic print but offers great advantages on smaller volumes and simple one, two or three colour graphics. You can also utilise special inks such as glitter or glow in the dark and specialist finishes such as pearlescent varnishes.

Digitally Printed Custom Boxes

With no start-up costs, the opportunity to personalise each packaging piece and the chance of speeding your product to market, the digital printing style of custom printed boxes is becoming increasingly more popular. It can be used on a variety of materials including folding boxboards, display boards, PVC and corrugated. It also offers a level of print quality close to that produced using lithographic print.

Expert packaging suppliers for over 40 years, with an emphasis on plastic-free packaging

In the late 1970s, two friends and colleagues, Tim Allen and Stewart Middleton saw a gap in the market for a different type of packaging supplier. At the time, other businesses were selling custom made boxes and stocking packaging consumables, but Tim and Stewart wanted to offer more than that. They wanted to give their clients additional services, such as warehouse storage and the ability to have their packaging delivered as and when it was required. Packaging Supplies was established, and the rest is history.
