Home-ware packing advice

Reducing the amount of returns is crucial when breakable items are being packed collectively. To illuminate damages products must be secured in place with no movement in the box.

Using a combination of sustainable voidfill, paper bubble wrap and paper tape can lock products inside their shipment carton, whilst demonstrating to your customer how important it is to be able to recycle the entire packaging received in their home.

Going Sustainable within the Home-ware Industry

Your packaging is the first experience the consumer has with your brand, so it’s crucial to make sure it reflects who you are and the quality of your products. 

A recent survey shows that the consumer demand for sustainable packaging is rapidly increasing. What do you want your customers to see when they open their delivery?
