We have recently made a bespoke cardboard box for a client, Conny Pitcher. It is a lovely wooden Christmas decoration.
Conny brought the item into us because she needed some packaging but did not want to spend a lot as it is a new business.
We wrapped the item in bubblewrap, measured it for the internal dimensions and then recommended and made a style 0411 brown single wall
5 sided wrap. This is the decoration in our box.
We love making boxes for one off items such as this. If you need any, please let us know.

These days we’re all being persuaded to use less and recycle more and this doesn’t apply more than in the retail sector. Businesses are being encouraged to be responsible in their choice of packaging materials used and to consider its environmental impact. This is why corrugated cardboard is leading the revolution in the future of sustainable packaging.
Plastic, steel and polystyrene have for a long time been the first choice for packaging materials, this is because retailers, on and off-line, have gone for the most obvious sources without necessarily considering other options available or indeed their ability to be recycled and become more environmentally friendly.
However, there is change in the air. As packaging materials come under the spotlight it is time for businesses to reconsider their options and aim to increase their environmental and social responsibility by choosing sustainable packaging products.
A recent example of such change was by Amazon who has made a start on reducing the volume of a selection of its shipping containers resulting in a saving of 45g of printed card inserts and 40g of plastic display film per pack. Amazon’s long term goal is to supply its entire catalogue in this environmentally friendly corrugated cardboard.
Amazon isn’t the only company to be re-evaluating their packaging usage, Cadbury’s, in association with Tesco, has also been leading the way in reducing the use of unsustainable packaging materials. Cadbury’s have decided to change the traditional tin packaging for its Roses and Heroes confectionary in favour of a cardboard box. The trial will take place in Tesco stores in the run up to Christmas and will see a reduction of 45 per cent in pack weight and save around 200 tonnes of steel per annum.
The use of corrugated cardboard isn’t restrictive:
"Times are changing in the packaging industry with increasing pressure on businesses to become more environmentally responsible for the materials they use. I think we will continue to see a shift to more sustainable sources such as corrugated cardboard with many of the larger retailers leading the way. However, everyone has a responsibility to protect the earth’s future and we should all consider our options and make an informed choice on such items as packaging materials, thus helping to reduce the world’s carbon footprint."Robert Boucher, Managing Director of Boxtopia
