New year, new catalogue – and even more new products!
Just before Christmas, we blogged about some of the new products that we’d just added to the range – things like anti-slip sheets, foil and gloss coloured bubble envelopes, black plastic sheeting and budget card envelopes.
Now we’re into 2015, and you’ll be pleased to hear that we’ve picked up exactly where we left off. In other words, we’ve just added even more new products – and you can see them, not only on our website, but also in our brand new, bumper-sized packaging catalogue.
Last time, we bumped our catalogue up to twice its previous size, and that’s proved so popular that we’ve kept the new, 116-page format – although, between you and me, we’re already struggling to fit all we want to even into that much space!
So, this time we’ve had to find space for two specialised, but for the right business, very useful bits of packaging – namely UN approved packaging that is required for shipping certain hazardous goods across international boundaries, and BDCM cartons, which many large fashion retailers insist their suppliers use when sending in their goods.
We’ve also introduced some packaging machines designed to make sealing cardboard boxes much faster and more efficient in high volume dispatch areas. More specifically, that means box taping machines, including an automatic version which adjusts itself as you can feed different sized cartons through, and automatic and semi-automatic strapping machines. If you’re not sure whether these are likely to be of benefit to your business, we’ll let you try them free for a week, or even spread your payments by renting them on a monthly basis. There are a few terms and conditions to these offers – just give us a call on 01332 821200 to find out more.
Meanwhile, on the website, but not in the catalogue, you’ll find a new range of very clever shipping labels which tell you if your parcel has been mishandled in transit. Shockwatch and Drop N Tell labels change colour to let you know if your parcel suffers an impact above a certain amount, while Tiltwatch and Tip N Tell labels tell you if a parcel that is supposed to be kept upright is tipped over a pre-specified number of degrees.
And if all that wasn’t enough for you to get to grips with, you’ll also find details of some great deals we have on many of the new products that we’ve introduced over the last year or two. To give you the chance to try them out for a little less, we’ve cut their prices. Just look out for the ‘Trial Prices’ flashes across both the catalogue and the website to take advantage of these special introductory offers.
