ABOUT THE PRODUCT
Corrugated mailing boxes are a popular mail order solution. Let’s make sure the first physical visual impression of your business is a good one! It is such a let down to receive a tatty or damaged delivery box. What message is that sending to your clients? Let’s make sure the outer mailing packaging matches the beautiful quality contents. By considering every detail, from the design, raw materials and size and weight of the products, ESC will create the perfect delivery box that will ensure your dispatches arrive with your customers in perfect condition and oozing the WOW factor you need.
We offer a wide choice of printing methods.
Flexographic is best suited to larger runs and more simple designs. They are printed with rubber printing plates that carry a set up charge on the 1st order.
Litho press is another option, this is a great solution for more upmarket boxes and complex artworks. It’s always overall a cheaper budget than flexo-printed boxes for orders below 2000 pieces.
Digitally printed boxes are great for those clients looking for a very small number for a particular project. There are no set up printing plates needed.
All boxes will either be tooled to a particular size or FEFCO style.
ESC Packaging own literally thousands of tools so we should have an existing tool you can borrow but if we don’t we can make your very own tool for you and the cost will vary depending on the factory and machinery being used.
Some FEFCO styles do not need tooling, for example 0201 which is a standard tape top and bottom carton. These can be made to any size you need without tooling (unless the box size is very small).
The boxes can be tailored to suit your exact needs and include extras such as:
MINIMUM ORDER (MOQ)
We usually advise the following Minimum Orders from a costing perspective.
Flexo – 500 – 1000 boxes
Litho – 250 – 500 boxes
Digital – 1 box
Delivery timescales are fluid depending on requirements. We can supply some more simple boxes within 5-7 days while other complex designs might take up to 8 weeks.
If you have a deadline, always let us know at the start because we will always have a fast delivery speed solution but it should be quoted accordingly.
All of the boards we use have FSC accreditation. .
The inks used are water, vegetable or non toxic Eco-Friendly toner, depending on the printing method offered.
Most of these boxes are UK made so offer a low carbon footprint due to transportation savings. Imported boxes arrive via truck or sea into our local port, Grangemouth, and we try to consolidate orders so they don’t travel alone. This
helps to keep the carbon footprint as low as possible.
All prices are calculated individually based upon your requirements.
