Packaging Materials; Practical Options For Your Business
Packaging materials are one of the most important choices that businesses have to make, not only from a cost perspective but in terms of how they would like to convey their business. Customers will make an immediate judgement on the quality of a product from the way it is presented and packaged. A quick look online will reveal that there are a huge range of boxes, tubes, envelopes and padded postal items for sale, but what you may not realise is that many of these will differ considerably in terms of quality. Poor quality materials are more likely to tear or fold during their journey to the customer. This in turn increases the chances of your items becoming damaged, which you certainly don't want. We promise our customers a broad range of packaging solutions of the very best quality, but what are the different types of material that you can purchase?
What is the difference between new and recycled packaging, and which one is best? Some businesses always opt for recycled packaging materials as they are conscious of their carbon footprint and want to convey that their business is environmentally friendly. What's more, recycled materials are often cheaper to post than standard padded envelopes or boxes. However if your postage and packing charges are on the high side, recycled packaging is not really recommended; it's advised that you choose something of a higher quality to justify your increased costs. New packaging, specifically designed for its purpose, is ideal. Make sure though that you buy a good quality new packaging product. Why not request one of our swatches of your chosen product before you commit to your purchase? Your swatch will be dispatched by first class Royal Mail.

It is really important to make your packaging process as simple and efficient as possible. Speeding up the process of packaging products for customers can free up time which you can spend doing other things, such as marketing or preparing some content for your website or newsletter. As your business expands it is always a good idea to review your packaging materials to identify whether you can reduce costs, decrease turnaround times and perhaps increase the quality of your packaging materials. Furthermore, the packaging process for your business will vary considerably depending on the products that you sell and the size of your company. Fragile items such as glass ornaments will require more time and care in the packaging process than packaging clothes or textiles, for example. Do you have a team of staff who can help with packaging, or is there just you to take care of everything?
