How to spec your packaging request for a quote
Typically, packaging costs are dependent on the quantity of your order. The more your order, the cheaper the unit cost becomes, as set ups and tooling can be expensive for smaller quantities.
Once we have your ideal quantity, we can illustrate how much per unit you can save by providing a couple of price breaks. You may decide to utilise your storage space in exchange for a lower unit cost.
If you already know the size you need, then we will require all the relevant dimensions such as height, length and width. If you know the style of box or carton you need, this will also help.
It is always beneficial to understand the purpose of your packaging and any special requirements that may need to be considered in the design.
If you don’t have a specific box in mind, it would be useful to get a sample that we can reference throughout the design process. We will provide a free of charge CAD prototype that can be sent to you, so that any tweaks or adjustments can be made before production.
From packing and transit to shelf testing, we can provide further samples to ensure your packaging is practical and fit-for-purpose.
We can offer creative and flexible solutions to fit your packaging brief. From corrugated and FBB packaging to plain and full colour printing (CMYK), plus spot colours, the options are endless.
Should you require any special finishes such as foil, UV varnish or maybe debossing, we can talk you through a whole range of finishing touches to make your packaging stand out.
If you already know what grade of board you would like, that’s great! If not, we would be happy to recommend grades along with alternatives that have specific characteristics around, shade, strength and thickness or are certified for specific uses.
We can also provide FSC and PEFC grades and are happy to carbon balance too!
