From an exhibition last month…

Ronnie & Elspeth visited All4pack Paris exhibition last month, and found a bunch of new creations for our clients.  We hope you enjoy them too.

A new round box packaging from as few as 1000, available in a range of sizes, colours and branding.  Option to include clear windows and castellated tops.

Perfect retail packaging for gifts, candles, and other items.


A Kraft brown disposable rucksack – you could call it a solution looking for a problem!  With MOQs in the region of 3000, and produced from part recycled material this could make heads turn at a University or student event.

If you know of any brown paper backpackers send them this way! – Not suitable for liquids!


A stand made entirely from pallets, with a table and chairs built in!

There’s more to do with pallets than just creating kindling wood… If you ever wondered what you could do with old pallets, see the link below:

Making a box that feels like a piece of furniture…

Paper over board has been superseded by paper over MDF.  This makes a very rigid box with more weight and very smooth corners.  Unfortunately these are not produced yet in the UK so lead time will be extended for development and production, but this creates a box that feels like a piece of furniture.  They can be made to size and branded as required. MOQ 1000 pieces.



Whoever thought of incorporating the bag handles into the design for this upmarket Optician?  Very creative on the High street, to make shoppers look twice.



Helpful tip on visiting exhibitions

Take pictures of the stands that you found interesting.  Then on return to the office, store the pictures, and when you want to go back to the suppliers, just run through the files, and it all comes back to mind.  Then simply Google the Company details.  So if you’re wondering what to do with that bag of brochures under your desk from the last exhibition – recycle them!

Secure tags, 10 reasons why

1. For Brand Authentication

A product sold with your brand on the tag will ensure its authenticity.

2. For Brand Loyalty

The more consistent the brand and the more times that the consumer sees it, the more likely they are to recognise it again.

3. For building a brand that delivers Support & Aftercare

Products have the stamp of genuine care as customers purchase a garment or product with the tag still securely in place.

4. For Security

The tag stays in place until it reaches the consumer, if not returns are null & void.

5. For Colour

Build your branded tag in your own Pantone colour.

6. For Value-adding

The perception is that if you’ve tagged a product it’s worth more.

7. For a Voice

Using your brand voice, “Hi fans” or “Hello friends”, there’s space here to add some text that will build up the message you send to a growing client base.

8. For Quality

If your warehouse and processes have been quality assessed, this is a way of spreading the word, and increasing the return on investment on the Quality standard.

9. For Street appeal

This has to do with the colour and design of the tag, to help your product stick out.

10. For a Competitive edge

If your competition do not have a Secure tag, here’s your ultimate leg-up!  Grab the idea quick and give your brand the edgy extra.

BoxcoUK make “The most valuable gift” for Nursing Hygiene Group

The Nursing Hygiene Group (NHG) have a culture of care and offer a sustainable long-term partnership for Healthcare establishments across the UK

It’s really important to them that the whole operation, of taking their relationship with a new client and a first appointment through to a successful working relationship is sleek, clean and professional.

Leaving the client with an overriding impression that NHG will be there when they need them. So that’s how they’ve come to using the Sales Presentation Pack for first appointments, built by BoxcoUK, from a range of promotional items that bed into a foam inlay that really spells care.

Overall, it delivers that strong message, throughout the industry, that NHG share a passion of care for the needs of disabled individuals to a standard that is conscientiously high.

Commenting on behalf of NHG, Garth Davey, Marketing Manager says

“We were very pleased with the finished product and were really impressed with BoxcoUK’s interpretation of our requirements and their attention to detail.”

Elspeth Devine, Production Manager at BoxcoUK adds

“This pack was really fun to see coming together. The creation is a collection of really good quality items giving an impressive overall ‘WOW!’ presentation.”

(The coaster in the NHG pack, which reads ‘The Most Valuable Gift’ can be personalised with the name of the new client that you are visiting, all from the comfort of your own office.)
