We thought we would go back a couple years and take a look at a burger and chip box that we create for a London advertising agency. They asked us to produce a couple of promotional cartons for Ferrari’s 70th Anniversary celebrations. Ferrari were looking for a chip carton to hold some polenta chips and also mini burger box to take a hamburger.
These cartons were digitally printed to the highest standard on a 500micron folding box board. We can supply folding display cartons in both standard and food grade materials and we are BRC certified for the storage of food & non-food grade packaging. In this case the cartons were to be lined with grease proof paper, which we can also provide in plain or printed with the clients own branding.
This job was produced to a very tight deadline with dates that could not be moved due to the cartons being required at a specific event. In many cases advertising agencies work with short lead times for their projects. In these cases we will always do everything in our power to meet these deadlines, delivering your boxes on time, every time.
We had the artwork guidelines and the Ferrari logo’s sent to us and for a small additional fee we created a number of artwork and colour variations for Ferrari to choose from.
Within 7 days these promotional printed cartons were designed, die cut, printed, hand glued and delivered in time for the event. All thanks to the expert knowledge and flexibility of our digital manufacturing unit.
Have you ever heard of a supermarket in Ireland called
Scally’s? They are discount supermarket chain specialising in own-brand
groceries and Irish produce – Real Food, Real People!
What is it that you have produced?
We have been working with this company for around a
year now, we have been working with them to create a branded 16oz tub with a
lid to match. This is one case where we created the artwork – we have an
amazing in-house design team that will work with us to get the design the
customer is looking for. With this design we had to leave a space on each lid
so that the customer can add stickers for each individual flavour. This is a
new product we have created and have been told they are selling well in the
small village in Ireland.
Where can I find these tubs?
If you live in Ireland or are heading, there soon then make sure you
take a visit to SuperValu
Clonakilty – Scally’s. there is everything from meat to fruit and of course
are the tubs made from?
The tub and lid are made from
food grade board, with a bioplastic (plant based) lining on the inside of the
tub. The inks are vegetable based making the product completely biodegradable,
compostable, and recyclable. Our
vision is to convert 100% of both our new and existing customers to our
sustainable packaging range by 2021.
your customers happy with the end result?

What has this event got to do with Takeaway Packaging?
Now this is something
you may have been thinking when reading this blog, so let us explain. Now you
may have heard of a company called Spotify – they are a Swedish
media-services provider founded in 2006. There primary business is its audio
streaming platform that provides DRM-protected music and podcasts from record
labels and media companies.
We created a 4oz Single Wall Cup, a 3oz Ice Cream Tub and an 8oz Double Wall Cup, all of which are PLA material, making them fully recyclable and compostable. PLA stands for polylactic acid and it is a vegetable-based plastic material consisting of renewable materials. We were given three different sets of artwork for each product made, which is they there ids a slight difference in colour.
How long did it take to produce?
All three of these products were created in 20 days and have a minimum order of 1,000 units (when branding them) and the turnaround time is 2-3 weeks. So if you are interested in creating your own branded packaging then give us a call 01753 655344 or email us at [email protected].
Was the customer happy with the final product?
They were extremely
happy as we were able to create the goods within a short amount of time and we
were able to ship them to Cannes with plenty of time to spare.
Working as a packaging company
we work with so many different customer’s, but we never thought an energy
company would need Ice Cream Tubs! Did you? We were shocked at first but at the
end of the day we are here to help anyone looking for branded packaging, so if
you are looking for some, then give us a call.
How long did these tubs take to make?
These tubs had a very small
turn around time, once we have artwork the tubs were delivered within 2 weeks
and were made in time for their deadline. This was an order for 1,000 tubs
which is our minimum order for branded tubs.
Was the customer satisfied with the tubs?
Yes, they were delighted and
they left us a review on Facebook expressing
their happines. It said “Great service and fast delivery! Will definitely order
from them again!” Our aim is to match our customers initial ideas to the best
we can. This was one of many occasions where we achieved this goal.
Do I need my own artwork to create branded tubs?
No absolutely not, we have an
amazing in-house design team that can create artwork for you! Simply explain
what you want them to look like and let us do our magic.

team about branded packaging. Call us on 01753 655344 or email us on [email protected].
We have been working alongside
the Royal Trust Collection to create A unique PLA ice cream tub to be given out
in their wonderful ice cream trucks. This has been an ongoing project, we are
so pleased with the outcome and wanted to share it with all of you.
What are the tubs made of?
The ice cream tubs are made of
PLA material, making them fully recyclable and compostable. PLA stands for polylactic
acid and it is a vegetable-based plastic material consisting of renewable
materials. However, even though they are PLA they are not shiny, they have a
lovely matt finish to them.
Where will I find these tubs?
These tubs are going to be
used to serve ice cream from the trucks placed around Windsor Castle and St
James’s Palace. There is a 3oz and a 5oz ice tub, so you can either have 1
scoop or if you are feeling hungry get 2 or 3 with lots of toppings of course.
Our favourite is strawberry swirl with oreo pieces and white chocolate sauce on
Who do I contact to create my own tubs?
You can either give
us a call or send us an email. We love to create tubs like
these, the end product makes it all worthwhile. Our tubs are manufactured from
heavyweight paperboard and are coated with PE on the interior (but can also be
coated on the exterior). PE coating is proven to be an ideal barrier against
frost, liquid and condensation. All printed ice cream tubs are produced to your
specific requirements. But like the Royal Collection Trust we can make them in
PLA if requested.
So, if you are
interested in making your own tubs just like this then give us a call and kick
start your summer with colour branded ice cream tubs that people will remember!
