The Cookaway approached us to help design their Packaging to ship their delicious home recipe boxes to customers. The aim of the project was to create an environmentally friendly, sturdy box that complimented the amazing branding that The Cookaway have.
We were able to come up with a custom printed die-cut box not just to hold all the super fresh ingredients but also to cleverly present the home recipe card that the user is greeted with when they open the box.
As these are being shipped through the post we had to use a heavy grade of cardboard to ensure they get to their valued customers without any damages.
Picture below are the boxes in their full glory:
Concerned about the environmental impacts of plastic packaging and the lack of recycling available for these types of product, Aston asked us to review the packaging and remove all plastics and deliver a totally paper based packaging solution. Here is how we achieved this:
Aston Microphones approached us in 2017 with their latest design projects to create a pack design to enhance the product and guarantee its safe transit through the courier network. We have formed a great working relationship which really suits both companies where we offer stock holding facilities and have even produced packaging designs for products that are manufactured and packed overseas.
The original packaging was a foam surround which had to be fabricated by hand in a basic corrugated carton.
We introduced corrugated die-cut boxes along with specialist corrugated fittings. The new pack is printed both inside and out in a fantastic looking design and made solely from corrugated, is 100% recyclable, in a single recycling process.
FFE Ltd have been a long standing customer of Barton Jones for over 10 years, for many years the supply was mainly for off the shelf packaging items. Last year with the announcement of our move into manufacturing we were given the opportunity to tender for the bespoke corrugated supply items.
The main issue was lack of space, packaging materials were covering a whole mezzanine floor area. Our first challenge was to eliminate this by offering stock holding at our site while drip feeding in daily deliveries. This allowed FFE to store more of the components they needed to produce manufactured items rather than hold packaging.
We worked alongside FFE to introduce a KANBAN call off system to ensure deliveries were met and their assembly department always had the correct amount of stock required to fulfil the works orders for that day.
With the manufacturing we were also able to deliver on a JIT basis to ensure all key lines never fell below monthly stock levels. We have continued to develop designs for new products while offering a second to none service and deliver a cost saving to the customer.
After a long standing relationship with Chillys fulfilment company we were asked to review their Packing processes. At the time Chillys were using a recycled polythene mailer with a manually inserted corrugated pad to send out all of their goods. The corrugated pad was inserted to stop the round bottles rolling off the conveyors in the distribution centres. This packing process was not only time consuming it also did not convey the right message or offer the adequate levels of protection to deliver the bottle to the end user in pristine condition.
Our aim was to design a simple and quick to pack Ecommerce box which also delivered on Chillys mission of being environmentally friendly.
We designed a box which both suited Chillys but drastically improved speed of packing for the fulfilment centre. The box is made from 100% recycled material as well as being 100% recyclable meaning it ticks all the boxes for Chillys. We added a simple water based 1 colour flexographic print to the inside of the box creating that valued opening experience for the customer. Chillys message is clearly portrayed within the box while highlighting the green credentials.
We later introduced a multi pack box to cater for larger orders. Chillys have seen rapid growth while maintaining every aspect of their mission to remain environmentally friendly with their fantastic range of reusable bottles.
Benchmark Fabrications – A renowned retail display solution provider with many demanding high street clients rely on Barton Jones to turn round bespoke cartons in quick time. We regularly manufacture cartons in 2-3 days’ notice, and we have been known to deliver the same day.
Benchmark also take advantage of our stock holding and call off agreements where deliveries are scheduled to tie in with retail installations onsite for their customers.
The Picture Gallery are a well respected family based company with values similar to ours at Barton Jones. The bespoke picture framing business has grown from strength to strength with a strong online presence.
Stock holding combined with excellent customer service and competitive pricing was enough to persuade The Picture Gallery to trust Barton Jones to supply their full range of packaging products.
We have continued to introduce many more bespoke sizes of Picture Frame Boxes to cater for their growing demands. These are all made in house in extra heavy duty grades to ensure no damages are caused to the beautifully framed pictures. The Picture Frame range has extended and we now offer them to similar customers. They are extremely quick to assemble as well as offering more than adequate protection for the rigours of the courier network.
