Custom corrugated packaging

Custom Corrugated Boxes.

Better costs, protection and branding

Sometimes an “off the shelf” or standard box simply will not meet your specific requirements. With custom packaging, you can guarantee specific levels of protection, whereas stock packaging is unlikely to offer the optimum level of performance and/or the most cost-effective solution.

As such, if you are looking for custom packaging engineered specifically to suit your products, GWP Packaging has the expertise to develop bespoke designs that can offer a precise level of protection, visually striking appearance and add genuine value.

02: Packaging Designers.

Expertise in design and manufacture of custom packaging

GWP understand the science of packaging, including the need for shock protection, stacking strength, presentation and in many cases, all three.

With GWP having worked with companies of all sizes and in practically every industry – including businesses just like yours – it means you can tap into extensive expertise in cushioning, ESD protection, product presentation and cost reduction, with many successful custom packaging designs requiring combinations of all of these features.

The corrugated custom packaging design service provided by GWP allows you to source corrugated boxes, inserts dividers and specialist products guaranteed to meet any specific requirement or application. It also means you can be certain that all of your corrugated packaging offers the optimum level of performance to prevent or eliminate damage to your products.

03: Packaging Design Process.

Drive improvements in efficiency and productivity

So what is the process for creating your custom corrugated packaging?

The first step of any design process will be a consultative meeting with you and any colleagues involved in the consideration process, to establish the technical and commercial requirements, and review the product to be packaged.

This will then allow a full corrugated packaging design process to be undertaken by our award winning team, closely following your brief and ensuring every requirement is considered and accounted for.

Packaging design expertise
GWP employ a large team of experienced packaging designers, ensuring you get an innovative, well thought out solution to any packaging requirement

Following this, a pre-production sample is supplied to prove each new corrugated packaging design concept will be commercially viable and suitable for the various handling / environments it will encounter.

This approach ensures that costly mistakes and errors are completely avoided before committing to full runs (and tooling) of a custom packaging design.

Finally, your chosen packaging solution will be manufactured in a state of the art production facility, guaranteeing the highest quality throughout.

This process ensures that your corrugated packaging designs, whether standard cardboard boxes, intricate retail POS displays, cushion packaging products or even corrugated spools, will be right first time, every time, eliminating costly mistakes and missed deadlines.

What GWP Packaging customers say

Price is the key issue for our business BUT other companies may have good prices but not quality products – often being very fragile. GWP provides not only quality products but at a good price too. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a packaging partner.

05: Packaging Samples.

Free consultation and pre-production packaging samples

As part of the custom packaging design service, your business can also take advantage of a free initial consultation and sampling service. Doing so ensures that every new design is the perfect fit with your requirements.

By working with GWP Packaging you can also benefit from a design team with extensive experience in the conceptual design and prototyping.

Creating a sample (or samples) before full production also ensures that any potential issues or requirements not considered in the original brief can be highlighted and addressed.

Ultimately, this process ensures that you are completely happy with your packaging, and it performs in excess of your expectations.

08: About GWP Packaging.

Taking a different approach

GWP take a holistic view of the packaging issues that may be then motivation for you to switch suppliers or source a new packaging solution.

Working alongside you at every stage of the packaging design process, this will involve considering every aspect of your brief whilst using our own extensive experience. Crucially, we will ensure that any corrugated packaging we supply to your business will offer the exact level of performance required, ensuring optimum material utilisation and cost-effectiveness.

Besides the structural integrity and design, this also covers the finer points that many other companies could overlook.

Bespoke packaging manufacturers
At GWP we believe in tailoring everything to your business - from your packaging to the supporting services you can take advantage of

For example seams may be glued, stitched or taped depending on the style of carton and shipping requirements. Special features such as hand holes, perforations and custom made fittings may be included in the specification.

Cartons may also require printing using any of a number of possible processes or even coated with a range of specialist products for water-resistance, ESD protection or anti-scuff properties.

The result of this whole process is a custom packaging design tailored perfectly for your application; packaging with a truly exceptional level of performance, both aesthetically pleasing and in line with your budget and environmental expectations.
