We specialise in supplying a wide range of packaging products including printed bags, boxes, tissue paper, bags for life and much more. Why not have a look at some of our customer case studies detailed below. We are dedicated to customer service as well as providing the perfect solution to your packaging and carrier bags needs; Whether that may be an urgent delivery deadline or producing that luxury item that really stands out.
Through a referral from a previous client we were contacted by the design agency employed by the Branch or Group; one of the largest pub, retail and hotel groups in Ireland regarding the packaging requirements for two new businesses with store openings within four weeks. The projects themselves were complex requiring us to create and co-ordinate an extensive and consistent range of printed paper packaging products to service specific roles within the new businesses. With the opening date looming the project was undertaken using a combination of short and medium term manufacturing allowing for both a reduction in average cost whilst also meeting the short-term demand.
To kick start the project a meeting was organised between the client, the design agency and our own in-house design team with the aim of setting expectations for all involved. Due to the urgent nature of the project we were able to offer two tailor-made solutions:
- To utilise our local manufacturing facilities to produce a smaller initial quantity of products
- To use our manufacturing facilities in the Far East to provide direct cost savings to the customer by producing a larger run of products here.
Further to this Precious Packaging was able to provide logistics assistance to the customer including arranging storage as well as a bi-monthly drop shipping service.
From here we were able to start the design of custom printed Cake Bags and Boxes as well as stunning Bespoke Pillow Boxes.
Due to the scale of the project we advised pre- production samples to ensure a better understanding of the finished product and specifics such as Pantone colours, handle lengths and box depths to which the client agreed. Upon confirmation of the samples our team began the production process and provided a detailed schedule of arrival dates for the short and long lead time orders which were stuck to rigidly; allowing the client’s project manager to plan and co-ordinate the store openings safe in the knowledge that she would have all of her packaging needs met.
Approached directly by an existing customer seeking new branding and packaging materials to tie in with a new shop fit the customer sought a solution that would really make him stand out from his competitors and realised that luxury packaging and a sharp design was one way to achieve this.
The first step was to establish a brand identity to work with; Precious Packaging’s Head of Design spoke to the customer initially over the phone to establish primary likes and dislikes enabling him to create a series of mock-ups to initially pitch to the client.
We also introduced Luxury Gift Boxes and Printed Tissue Paper to compliment his luxury, high-end offering. Upon agreeing on all of the products we provided a detailed delivery schedule with the customer as well as providing him with some Luxury Plain Paper Bags, Tissue Paper and Boxes to ensure he was not left without bags in the interim period.
On the creation of a logo Precious Packaging were then able to establish the customer's preferences; working with a number of luxury paper manufacturers we settled on using Colour Plan Paper for the clients new Printed Paper Bags. This luxurious, uncoated and high-quality paper was perfect to provide a clear differentiation from competitors in a market where the majority of paper carrier bags are matt or gloss laminated.
Precious Packaging was approached by International Film Brand Universal Studio’s to provide them with Branded Paper Bags within a five day period for an event they were running to promote a film. Utilising both our large collection of Plain Stock Carrier Bags as well as in-house over print service, Key Account Manager James Simpson gave Universal a number of different options. Upon agreement with the client, we placed the artwork, created the plates for the printing two hours later and were able to print and dispatch these stylish black printed bags the following day via our dedicated next day delivery service.
Precious Packaging opened talks with up and coming Manchester brand Win Naturally in the latter half of 2013.
Win Naturally is a health-food and lifestyle brand that is the brainchild of Julie Neville, wife of ex-Manchester United and Everton player Phil Neville. Win Naturally needed to source a full range of retail packaging to meet a variety of different requirements. With such a diverse product range there was a need for a mixture of Luxury but also Cost Effective Carrier Bags without losing the aesthetic appeal that a paper bag brings to a brand. Using our extensive experience we put together, and pitched, an all-encompassing solution to Win Naturally’s needs and much to our delight they accepted.
The Merchant Hotel approached Precious Packaging seeking to improve upon their existing gift vouchers prior to their busy Christmas trading period. With Christmas being less than eight weeks away we had to work quickly and accurately. Providing a range of samples of past projects to help stimulate some inspiration for the direction in which the client wished to go we quickly settled on two main styles of Luxury Gift Boxes, both of which would have a foam insert to hold the credit card sized electronic voucher. This was a big project and one not to be taken lightly so to ensure that the customer would be satisfied with the product we created two prototype samples made in our UK printing facility.
Upon presentation, the client was satisfied that these products were exactly what they wanted and we proceeded into mass production. The first set of boxes, with Spot UV Varnishing to make them really stand out from the crowd, arrived in Belfast with the client in less than 10 days allowing the customer to utilise them almost immediately. The rest of the order arrived four weeks later just in time for the Christmas rush to really kick in.
Precious packaging offers a wide range of tailored services to all of our customers. If you have a stringent deadline, a strange request or simply fancy a chat give us a call today and we will tailor a solution to even the most seemingly impossible requirements.
Next PLC is a name synonymous with British Fashion, style and elegance which is why Precious Packaging jumped at the opportunity to work with such a household name.
Next sought to build a range of Cotton Carrier Bags for their retail outlets and were looking for a company that could provide top quality products at a top quality price. Working alongside their purchasing and design teams we created a number of different ‘concept bags’ with which they really liked.
They did not however simply want a standard cotton bag; to ensure that the bag we would make would have the X-Factor in every aspect we cut right down to the cotton used, the stitching of the bag and even added additional reinforcements to the handles so that even an international rugby player couldn’t rip the handles off. These bags are currently under production and will be rolled out across the UK in the coming months.
