Bottle packaging options
If you are responsible for the boxes your business uses, custom bottle packaging can provide you with a wide range of benefits.
Custom bottle packaging is used for the safe shipping of glass bottles. Typically manufactured from corrugated cardboard, bottle packaging can also include printing and various inserts. Packaging of this type is commonplace among breweries, distilleries, vineyards, and eCommerce sellers.
Benefits of using bespoke bottle packaging include reduced shipping costs, better protection, faster packing processes and easier recycling for your customers.
Bottle packaging inserts
In what sizes are bottle boxes available?
Manufacturing your bottle boxes to any size offers the optimum performance for your specific application. Custom sizes – rather than stock options – mean your bottle packaging is tailored to whether you send beer or wine bottles, single or multiple items within a shipment, or even if you need extensive print and branding.
What is bottle packaging manufactured from?
A durable and robust corrugated cardboard material is common for manufacturing bottle postal and shipping packaging. The exact type and strength of material – either single or double wall – is selected based on the weight of the contents. You can choose between white and brown (kraft) finish.
Can bottle packaging be printed?
You can choose to have your bottle packaging supplied with custom printing. Print can include simple one-colour logos, handling and care instructions, promotional messages or even full-colour, highly detailed illustrations and graphics.
What are bottle carriers?
Bottle carriers are boxes that typically allow easy carrying of several bottles. Used frequently in retail environments and as gift packaging, bottle carriers allow your business more flexibility when supplying beverages to your customers.
Can I order a single bottle pack?
GWP Packaging manufacture bespoke corrugated packaging. As such, MOQs (minimum order quantities) apply to all boxes supplied, including bottle packaging. If you are a non-business customer that requires a one-off box, the most cost-effective option is likely to be an eCommerce retailer selling these.
Do I need additional inserts for shipping bottles?
Whilst you do not always need to use inserts or dividers, including them can help to minimise damage caused by mishandling during transport. Foam end caps and linings can help to cushion your glass bottles. Packaging dividers can also help prevent damage by eliminating movement within the outer carton and help with packing efficiency.
Are these suitable for micro-brewery/craft suppliers?
Many micro-breweries, craft spirit producers, distilleries and well-known brand names use GWP Packaging bottle boxes. If you are unsure whether they are suitable for your business, then a member of the GWP team will be happy to advise.
