Four packs for more than a hundred products – a successful example of late-stage customisation. An innovative all-round solution was designed to harmonise various packaging designs and reduce logistics costs: four pack sizes are produced and refined in a master design, followed by individualisation by label. All of them come with a high-quality magnetic closure.

Well-dosed Charm

This box is actually a generic premium box for the entire range. It can be used for all the different types of champagne in the Cuvée Collection. Adding a small extra bottom element which easily locks on to the folding carton makes the packaging specific to the contents. This allows the cartons to be produced in a bigger run, avoiding extra tooling and set-up costs and waste. A combination of soft touch varnish with glossy elements and micro structures creates a high level of touch and feel.

Visible Fun

This beer giftpack has a high fun factor. The unusual artwork in combination with the attractive construction design ensures product stand out. The glass needs to be protected whilst the white logo on the glass still has to be clearly visible. This is achieved by extending the inside into the glass as well as by printing the interior, which highlights the brand logo. The result is an eye-catching yet compact giftpack.

Curved Pleasure

In a retail store, product and brand differentiation is crucial. According to some studies, curved shaped objects are often perceived as more attractive than objects with sharp angles. The Havana Club promotion pack is an exclusive design that required a rigid packaging material that could also be curved, which is achieved using Arcwise® patented technology. This pack also features a jar of honey to make your own rum cocktails. The bottle is clearly visible on the shelf as the entire side is curved and open.

The high quality of the Hemply Balance products needed to be evident from the packaging as they are largely sold through webshops. Landing in the customer’s mailbox, the packaging is a very important part of the shopping experience. The packaging is also intended to be used for storage and transport protection. Therefore, it is made in a high strength cartonboard and designed with both an inner and outer carton to give extra durable protection.

Instead of plastic, the pack has cartonboard inlays that make the product visible and help the consumer to keep the cosmetic set together.

With the increasing demand for the reduction of plastics, agricultural producers require packaging solutions that are not only ecological, but also attractive. The “fresh pack“ tray is visually appealing without losing protection and transport properties. The solution has completely replaced a plastic tray. The innovation in this model is the adjustment of the lid, which allows opening and closing with a perfect fit.

Healthy and Safe

The specification was a re-sealable, secure blister pack in a handy size that could accommodate an instruction leaflet. The drops, made of pure Manuka honey, needed a pack with a natural feel, which is created by the uncoated cartonboard side and the matt varnish. The product is secured by a blister, which cannot be removed without damaging the pack. The pack also provides ample space for the explanatory text.
