Retail Industry

Packaging in the retail industry is an important influence on purchasing decisions. The way you package your products can make the biggest difference between a customer choosing you over a competitor. The box or bag that your product is in, is the first thing the customer sees, so it has to be attractive, smart and show your brand name.

About the industry

With the growing concern of global warming, a huge percentage of businesses have set goals to reach net-zero, and customers expect to find evidence they are doing this. One way to prove this is by providing your products in eco-friendly packaging. Not only are you showing your customer you care about the environment, you are creating less plastic waste and influencing others to choose paper over plastic. 

And, its fully customisable! You can add your own logo, brand name, colours and much more to our retail packaging. 

What Packaging Should I Use?

There is a wide range of packaging when it comes to the retail industry, whether it be used for transport, storage, on-the-shelf items, or for customers. We have created a list below for the options we believe would suit your business.

Paper Retail Bags

The amount of plastic bags sold each year is astonishing, with a huge 80% of them not being recycled, and those which are taking between 100 and 400 years to break down. Our range of paper retail bags are made from recycled paper and are 100% recyclable. They are available in White or Brown and in a range of sizes to suit your needs. You can even add your own logo and brand name to the bag to promote your brand name.  Many retailers are switching from plastic bags to paper bags for customers to take home their shopping.

Product Packaging

It is important for every company, no matter the size, to reduce their plastic waste in some way. We believe the first step to doing this is by switching your plastic packaging to paper-based products. Our range of cardboard boxes in different sizes is a great place to start. With a variety of shapes, sizes and thicknesses, we have a box for any shape and sized product. These are also available to be printed to suit your needs and your brand image the best way. The product packaging is great for shipping anything to your customers or clients. It will provide a safe, secure delivery with a professional look.
