Printed Folding Carton Manufacturing

One thing that sets us aside from many of the UK based packaging manufacturers is the ability to specialise in short to medium runs, from as little as 100 units for a promotional event up to large scale production runs for all year rounds products.

We want our customer to build their businesses and try things out without having to commit to purchasing thousands of boxes. This gives customers the freedom to experiment and to continue to do the things they love doing without having to worry about packaging taking over their budget or limited space in their stock rooms.

As we manufacture from our base in the West Midlands we can offer quality and hygiene standards of the very highest level under BRC certification but prices and lead-times geared to meet smaller volume requirements. Because short-run expertise demands processing thousands of orders every year, there is continual flexibility in the production schedule to meet short lead-times on a consistent basis.

Experts in Food Packaging | But More than Just Food Packaging Experts

Due to our rich experience in the industry, our core focus is chocolate boxes and premium ambient food retail packaging, but we also design and produce specialist printed folding carton and transparent packaging for home and beauty products such as soap and fragrances and we have also been challenged in the past with producing gift boxes for diverse products such as glassware, chess pieces, and much more besides.

Diverse Material and Packaging Types

We work with carton board of all forms and produce PVC/PET (transparent) packaging with machines that can produce 4 corner glued boxes and round PVC boxes in a range of sizes.

Finest Print and Finishing Techniques

We are set up for litho print, lamination, hot foiling, embossing and debossing to make your packaging stand out on the shelf.  If you find that an off-the-shelf product is ideal for your needs and want to take the next step with your packaging it can be customized using hot foiling, embossing or debossing to creative cost effective small run products without the cost of entering into the world of bespoke tooling.

Complex Hand Finishing and Assembly Work

We have an onsite highly skilled hand finishing and packing department who are set up to assemble and construct packaging that otherwise would be impossible to machine manufacture. This allows us to offer you complex packaging design and deliver you with products that can be fully assembled for ease of final product packing.

Packaging Types

Because we will source packaging products for you and we are also happy to make referrals so that you can deal directly with some suppliers who we know and trust to deliver a similarly high service, there is very little we won't help with - so if you have something weird and wonderful and you're finding it difficult to locate, just ask us and we're confident we can help in some way.

We also offer such an extensive stock collection (through our online packaging shop) that we can often meety your needs through a stock packaging line, such as hamper trays, film bags, paper carrier bags and more.

But wherever possible we seek to use our wide ranging manufacturing skills to meet most of our customers' individual packaging requirements. The list below is certainly not exhaustive, but it's helpful to represent at least some of the types of packaging we produce:

  • Header and Backing Cards
  • Window Cartons
  • Two-Part Gift Boxes
  • Pillow Packs
  • Shelf Ready Packs and Display Packaging
  • Chocolate and Confectionery Packaging (Cartons, Boxes, Ballotins and More)
  • Boxes with Transparent Lids
  • Transparent Packaging (Cartons, Two-part Boxes and More)
