Packaging productions was created as a result of 12 years experience being a manufacturer and wholesaler in the Gift and Homeware’s area. Our speciality area was candle and fragranced products manufacturing and wholesale.
Knowing that packaging sells, I found that it was impossible to buy small quantities of quality printed candle boxes to package our products. Most Australian printed folding carton manufacturers require a large minimum order quantity of at least 1000 boxes. Additional costs included set up costs of a few hundred dollars for cutting dies and plates.
You can imagine the frustration and price if you wanted five new candle boxes. It felt so wasteful having to order in the thousands that you knew would not sell before wanting to change the design again for a new range.
We also wanted to be able to offer private label and contract manufacturing customers an option to package their products in a cost effective solution.
After spending 18 months researching and visiting printers overseas, we now have a couple of fantastic printing companies to work with us in solving Australia’s short run printed packaging problem.
Our focus is on short run low volume colour printed folding cartons from as low as 500 pieces.
Our niche market where we are competitive is from 500 – 2000 pieces of a variety.
