2017 Packaging Highlights…

Reading Time: 3 minutes



Whether you’re starting a business or setting up shop at home, packaging supplies can sometimes be an expensive outlay. To make things simple and cost effective, this year we introduced our new economy packaging range. Including a selection of popular, tough and durable cardboard boxes, a range of bubble wrap and postal packaging, the econoRange is always in stock in high quantities! This means you can place your order before 2:30pm on a working day and we will usually get your packaging to you the very next working day, helping young and growing businesses start off in the industry by getting good prices whilst not having to stock huge quantities.

As the year progressed, new legislations within the tobacco industry affected the way electronic cigarettes and vaping products were to be packaged with all vaping refill containers not able to exceed 10ml per bottle. Our range of custom printed vapour boxes helps companies to comply with these new regulations.

April 2017 saw another tax year end and another begin, with that our archive and storage box range became a popular choice. For storing and organising vinyls our new record boxes were a big hit among buyers. With the added benefit of a lid and hole punched handles, these two purpose made boxes are perfect for storing aged documents, vinyl records and large ring bound folders.

6 months into the year we had already introduced just over 300 new product codes across all our ranges including postal packaging kits, protective envelopes and air packaging solutions. Some of these included lighter weighted card envelopes to save on excess postage charges, additional colours to the polygloss envelopes range, padded postal boxes and a new range of air protective packaging – Bubl Bags!

Further to that we introduced a new range of stationary, weighing and retail shop equipment, to reflect our customer needs and a few gaps in our range. With this our 5 star rating on Trustpilot reached a peak position of 9.6 out of 10, making us the preferred and recommended packaging supplier for speed, wide choice of products and great service!

This year we also focused on providing our customers with bespoke packaging; made to measure boxes designed to fit perfectly around a product, taking into consideration the weight, dimensions and value of the product you wish to send. (Contact our sales team via web chat on www.davpack.co.uk for a quick evaluation).

As we reached the end of the year we introduced an interactive way customers design their own packaging and place an order instantly! Our personalised ribbon and custom dressing tape allows customers to upload their artwork (such as a business logo, personal message or special opening instructions) before proceeding to place their order as normal. Using thermal heat to produce a high quality print, our personalised ribbon or tape is then dispatched within only 2 – 3 working days! giving customers that unique edge and personal touch over the larger players within the industry.


For 2018 we are striving to maintain our strong 5 star rating in focusing on providing great customer service and a huge choice of packaging at competitive prices. Should you have any recommendations or feedback on our service or products, please let us know at sales@davpack.co.uk , in the meantime we wish you a joyous Christmas period and Happy New Year in advance!

Best wishes, the Davpack Team
