03: Additional SRP uses.

Additional reasons to make use of SRP

Shelf ready packaging is commonly used within shops or retail areas where (prominent) display space is often limited.

With the possibility of being able to utilise any space within the retail environment (unlike corrugated point of sale), shelf ready packaging provides an incredibly efficient way to present merchandise.

Suitable for a vast range of different applications, shelf ready packaging can be designed to fit your individual requirements with additional printing options available.

What GWP Packaging customers say

Three out of four new SKUs fail to generate even £100,000 sales in their first year of trading and are often delisted by retailers*. Make sure you give your products a fighting chance by maximising the advantages offered by your packaging, including the use of SRPs.

05: About GWP Packaging.

A designer, manufacturer and supplier of branded packaging

It takes time and effort to get your products into large retailers. It can take months of sales pitches, negotiations and meetings. But the results are worth it.

One aspect that can play an important role is the ease of which your products can be assimilated into the retailers current product range. Whilst pricing, features and “filling a gap” all play a role here, it is often overlooked that you packaging does too.

This is why shelf ready packaging is growing in importance – as it can allow retail staff to simply stack your packaging onto the shelf, remove the cover area and your products are perfectly displayed on the shelf.
