Twist end Christmas Cracker Packaging
Looking for an alternative packaging option for the festive season? Why not look at a self-fill twist end cracker to bring a seasonal 'twist' to your products this Christmas!
We are crackers for crackers
Christmas crackers date as far back as 1845 and were reportedly created by a London sweet producer, who found a creative way to combine his love of French bon-bons and the crackling sound of a fireplace.
Crackers have been the mainstay of our festive season ever since, but tastes have changed a lot in 174 years. Gone are the days when a paper hat, mini screwdriver and a ‘dad’ joke would suffice, now people are wanting to offer something more unique to adorn their Christmas Day table.
August is normally the time of year when the big retailers start to show off their Christmas 2019 range, with Waitrose having just previewed a Sausage roll Christmas cracker, the trend for luxury crackers looks like it is set to stay. Once the big retailers have previewed their Christmas range, it is time for the smaller, independent retailers to look at their festive offerings.
A branded Christmas cracker gift box is the ideal way to promote your brand and your products during the festive period. Why not provide your customers with a luxury cracker filled with things they actually want – such as a miniature gin selection, cashmere socks or wax melts. Don't just restrict yourself to crackers for humans, your pet-loving customers would love the chance to pick up a treat-filled cracker for their four-legged friend.
We offer 8 x different size and style options in our off the shelf cracker range, simply pick a size and get creative! Save money on your packaging by choosing an existing size to save yourself on the expense of tooling.
From as little as 100 units, choose from one of the cracker sizes and choose to customize with hot foiling blocking on one of our many different colored boards or send over a fully custom-designed cracker for a printed option. We cover all bases by offering low migration inks in printing which are suitable for direct food contact and are also pet safe.
If you are eco-conscious, choose a natural recyclable kraft board for your design.
Fully bespoke creativity:
If you want to really go all out this Christmas, why not look at having us create a fully bespoke cracker for your products? Our creative in-house design team can come up with prototype designs from your project brief. Whether you want to package cheese, jars or candles, our team can develop the perfect packaging solution for you in order to promote your product this festive season.
We have worked on cat and carrot-shaped crackers in the past and produced crackers with innovative foil blocked designs to give the feeling of a luxurious gift this Christmas.
Please note that these crackers are not ‘traditional’ crackers with the pull bang, they are self-fill and twist to close gift boxes in the shape of a Christmas Cracker. If you can't quite work out how to assemble our crackers, check out details on this handy how-to video
The best part of our crackers? Although they are missing the ‘bang', the twist close means that they are reusable, which is ideal in trying to reduce single-use packaging in this eco-conscious time.
Recently Sainsbury's have made a commitment to remove 60 tonnes of plastic packaging from Christmas crackers this year, with our twist end crackers, you too can provide your customers with a reusable packaging option that they will be able to find a new life for.
