Postal boxes from the packaging experts
According to statistics issued by the Interactive Media in Retail Group (IMRG), every year more than one billion parcels are shipped from online purchases in the UK. That’s a lot of parcels. Furthermore, 37% of adults now shop online; in May 2011, e-retail accounted for 9.4% of the UK’s total retail market; and, despite the recession, the e-retail market is estimated to be growing by 18% per annum.
A few conclusions can be drawn from these figures. Firstly, that Britain’s posties are going to have to start working out a bit more. Secondly, that those numbers are only going to continue going up over the next few years. And thirdly, that an awful lot of cardboard boxes are going to be needed.
How do you want to send it?
As the UK’s leading online supplier of packaging, Davpack is at the forefront of helping the nation’s growing army of e-retailers, both large and small, get their products to their customers safely and at a price which keeps them competitive.
Our range of postal packaging includes a vast array of postal boxes, plus Jiffy bags and padded envelopes, postal tubes, book boxes and book wraps, protective envelopes and paper mailing sacks.
We have perhaps the biggest range of postal boxes available in the UK, with our basic level Econopost Brown Postal Boxes coming in 34 different sizes alone. And with prices starting at under 16p per box, they’re not going to increase costs in a significant way. And just because they’re inexpensive, don’t think they’re going to be flimsy; with triple thickness sides and double thickness base, they’ll withstand the rigours of any postal journey.
We also stock ColomPac’s impressive range of postal boxes which, as well as several layers of protective cardboard on each side, also have reinforced edges and corners for total shockproof protection. ColomPac mailing boxes are recognised as market leaders and are used in their millions across Europe by book distributors, fulfillment houses and e-commerce operators. We’re proud to be one of only three companies in the UK distributing these top quality products.
For a smarter box to send your products to your customers, why not use one of our white postal boxes? They cost a little more than the brown boxes, but they certainly won’t break the bank and definitely add that extra touch of class to your presentation. For good measure they’re made from 100% recycled material and are in stock now, ready for immediate despatch!
Or if you want to really make your post stand out from the crowd, you could even go for our coloured postal boxes! In a range of eye-catching colours, including blue, red, silver and black, they don’t stint on the strength and solidity of our other boxes, but do add a bit of pizzazz to your mailout!
Our postal boxes don’t just get your goods to their destination safely and looking at their best – they can also save you money! In 2006, the Royal Mail introduced Pricing in Proportion, whereby postal charges relate as much to the size and thickness of a parcel as they do to the weight. Our Post Saver Large Letter Postal Boxes have been designed to ensure costs are kept to a minimum by conforming to the large letter charge band, rather than the small packet one (as long as the weight is under 750g).
So if you need to post something and you want it to arrive safely and at minimum cost, you now know where to look. And if all that weren’t enough, all our postal boxes are kept in stock ready to be despatched the same day you order them. And if that’s still not enough, we’re so confident of our products that if you’re not satisfied with them for any reason, just return them within seven days and you’ll get a full refund. Guaranteed!
