Packaging For Retail Launches Straight Into The Spotlight

This year Packaging For Retail has taken off as they say.

2015: The year Packaging For Retail took off

More and more customers are finding us through our website and that is down to the hard work and dedication of Reece at Cubidesigns. Companies such as Wensleydale Creamery, Hawkshead Brewery, Fitzparticks, The Little Chocolate Shop and many others are repeating their orders with us, and we’re attracting many new clients who are using our services for the very first time. 

With all this comes some amazing feedback. Stripe Communications have said “Packaging For Retail is now our number one go-to supplier for packaging”.

But our customer base doesn’t just stop at beer and chocolate suppliers! Woof & Brew are a wonderful supplier of herbal teas for dogs and found a need for our packaging services.

All this is amazing; we’re meeting new people, finding new businesses and looking to grow the company that we operate. 

To top it all off, we’ve secured a really exciting working relationship with AC Agencies, who operate solely in the Micro Brewery market, offering gift packs for bottled beers and ciders.

This is an area we are already supplying, but now working alongside Andy Cason, the number of breweries we supply has gone through the roof. All this, inevitably, leads to a much better service and better prices for our customers.

With our own growth, the digital marketing help of Cubidesigns and our product range, theres nothing stopping us!

Heres to the future!

Price Increases

David and I are very sorry to have to finally give in. Given current conditions in the industry we’ve had to increase our prices with immediate effect.

Over recent months our sector has been hit with multiple and significant price increases in our raw materials. We’ve had at least three price increases of between 7% & 8% each time. Furthermore, suppliers are planning to increase the cost of corrugated board even further. This is due to an acute shortage of paper and board, with paper mills struggling to keep pace with demand and the upsurge in online trading during the lock-down.

The situation has been widely reported on and does not seem set to improve significantly any time soon.

By planning ahead and making arrangements with our suppliers we have managed to mitigate the impact on availability and lead-times, and have pretty much traded as usual, with only slight delays in most cases.

Until now we have held our prices and tried to absorb the impact. Unfortunately, this cannot continue.

We thank you for your understanding and for your very valued business.

David and Bernadette
