Bespoke Christmas Gift Packaging: Protecting Your Stock

For many ecommerce businesses stock ordering and packaging for the Christmas period is just around the corner. With online shopping going through a boom of popularity, ensuring your christmas gift products are safe, secure and protected through proper gift packaging has never been more important. Not only that, if you’re looking to add value and stand out from the crowd, bespoke packaging could be just what you need. 

Of all the products that are returned from an online purchase, 20% of them are due to customers receiving broken or otherwise damaged products. This will not only have huge financial ramifications for your business, but it also impacts your brand integrity and trust.

And of course it isn’t just online retail that suffers from damaged goods. When transporting your stock to traditional bricks and mortar stores ensuring they arrive in the best possible condition and are presented in the best possible way is crucial. 

So what can be done? You could consider bubble wrap, foam peanuts or shredded paper, but this isn’t always enough to protect your high-value products from knocks, falls and rough handling that can happen during transit. Furthermore, if you are utilising your gift packaging as an additional wow factor, then bubble wrap just doesn’t cut it. 

If this sounds all familiar then worry no longer. At PottertonPacs we have a wide collection of polystyrene and foam solutions for your Christmas packaging needs. Read on to learn more and why this is the gift packaging solution you’ve been looking for.

Christmas Product Gift Packing Made Specifically For You

All products can benefit from being protected during transit, but of course is especially true for those fragile, delicate or intricate christmas gifts. Our Polystyrene or Foam packaging solutions can be hot wire, die or  water-jet cut to accommodate any product, size or shape. This tailored fit means that your products have less room to move around which greatly reduces the risk of damage. For example, if you are producing a drink christmas gift set, complete with bottle and glasses. We are able to produce packing to the precise size and shape of your offering, keeping it safe, perfectly in place and beautifully presented. 

At PottertonPacs we use Computer Numerical Control (CNC) technology to cut our foam materials. This technique of foam cutting has numerous benefits, as it’s computerised the cutting process is extremely precise, easily cutting out even complex shapes with perfect precision and consistency. The removal of human influence over the cutting, means that the speed is greatly increased.

Having your Christmas gift packaging custom made for you also allows you to optimise the space being used inside your outward facing box or case. This means you’ll be able to economise the size of the box, which in turn will help you to reduce your shipping costs.

Maximum Support & Protection

Keeping your products safe is the primary focus of our polystyrene and foam Christmas packaging solutions. Traditional methods of packaging products don’t necessarily offer the highest levels of protection for your products. For example, if you were using bubble wrap for your products, it may require a lot to adequately protect your products, and even then it may not protect them from every knock or fall. Furthermore if you are packaging more than one item it could become very bulky as you try to protect each element, which will in turn lead to increased costs.

Tailor made packaging solutions negate this problem by providing your fragile products with protection that’s a perfect fit. As the foam can cut  to exact shapes, it can hold items in place whilst also absorbing any vibration or impact energies. Besides this, there are many grades which offer a soft surface, which in turn can protect the surfaces of the products transported.

Stand Out With Visually Appealing Packaging

A lot of thought and attention goes into consumer facing product packaging. The materials being used, the amount and type of information given, and ofcourse and importantly the images and style you use. This is very important for standing out against your competitors and for converting the quality of your product. The question is should this stop outside? Absolutely not.

When customers open the box, how the product is presented plays an important role in their experience. Gifts packaged well, with everything in the correct place portray quality to the consumer, it shows care and pride for the product. It also reassures the customer that nothing is damaged if it is being held firmly where it is supposed to be.

Our foam Christmas packaging solutions are also available in a variety of different colours, allowing you to really make an impact.
