  3. How Printed Tapes Can Enhance Your Business’ Packaging

    It is an undeniable fact that packaging has a huge influence on customer behaviour. Several aspects of packaging such as the shape, design, colour and customisation play an important role in impressing customers, retaining them and increasing your sales.

    When your customers receive your shipment, even before they begin using your products, the brand experience and brand association begin with the product packaging. When a customer receives a perfectly packed shipment, it conveys the message that you care for your customers' safety.

    If you are still not using printed packaging tapes, here are the top reasons to do so.

  4. Reusing Your Cardboard Boxes

    If you receive plenty of cardboard boxes as part of your business, it’s time to look for recycling options for them. You cannot just throw them away; you need to put them to some use. This will help you do your bit towards a sustainable lifestyle and a greener planet.

    It is a good idea to invest in packaging shredders so you can shred the cardboard boxes and put them to productive use. Here are some ways in which you can use shredded cardboard boxes.

    Packaging Delicate Items

  5. Using Security Seals to Protect Your Products

    Whether you manufacture electrical equipment, medical supplies or food, when you are sending your products, you want to ensure your products are safe and secure against tampering after they leave your production site.

    Packaging security seals play a crucial role in protecting your products. Whether you use them for storing items or transporting, security seals make sure your packages remain protected and secured.

    Security seals are designed to prevent unauthorised access to your products by making it obvious when somebody has tampered with them. They do this by leaving fragments/text of themselves on the packaging or breaking into several pieces when anyone attempts to remove them.

    Why Use Packaging Security Seals

    • Protection against tampering. As products travel, multiple people at multiple facilities handle them before they reach the end consumers. With several people having access to your products, there’s a huge risk of damage or tam

  6. UK Packaging Trends in the COVID-19 Era

    As in most industries, the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the packaging sector. The impact of COVID-19 has been wide and varied and will also be long-lasting.

    The pandemic has not only changed our lives as we knew it, but it is expected to influence our daily life for the next 12 to 18 months. This uncertainty has impacted consumer attitudes towards packaging solutions too.

    In this post, we look at some of the key packaging trends in the UK during the COVID-19 era.

  7. Tips for Safely Packaging Electronic Products

    Shipping electronics can be a cause for worry; there’s always the risk of damage in transit. Electrical products are particularly difficult to ship – many shipping companies won’t insure them most of the time as they are fragile in nature.

    However, it’s not impossible to safely ship your electronic product. In this post, we share some safety tips for packaging electronic products.

    Use the Right Sized Box

    Give a thought to the type and size of box you will use to package your electronic product. Avoid using a box that is too small; your product will need some room after it has been wrapped and packaged. Be sure to pick a cardboard box that is sturdy, thick and can take pressure.

    This is crucial because if the package is stacked beneath other boxes, it could crumple under the weight, which can damage the product inside.

    The Packaging

    Start by taking any antistatic measures necessary. This will be needed for individual
