The Benefits Of Corrugated Packaging In Macclesfield

If you are a business or brand based in Macclesfield, there’s no doubt that you will be on the hunt for the most inexpensive and robust form of packaging available. And that’s where Cheshire Packaging comes in. We offer corrugated packaging in Macclesfield and surrounding areas as a strong alternative to metal, wood and glass.

Many of our customers come to us and ask what are the benefits of corrugated cardboard packaging – so we decided to put all of the advantages into a handy blog post for you to enjoy. So read on to find out all about our corrugated packaging in Macclesfield.

It Is Lightweight

Compared to many alternatives such as wood and metal, corrugated cardboard is a cut above the rest when it comes to weight. Due to its lightness and flexibility, it is often the first choice for display packaging. And, what’s more, it is an affordable and sustainable option, too.

For both businesses and customers, corrugated packaging is an attractive choice. This is particularly true when it comes to heavy loads. Corrugated cardboard is easy to ship, handle and transport, making the whole process easier and smoother for businesses and brands.

It Keeps Your Products Safe

Corrugated packaging in Macclesfield is one of the biggest and best options due to its protective nature. Not only is it flexible in its composition, it also acts as a barrier between the elements and your products. Cardboard is resistant to shock, impact and vibration and it’s also able to support heavy weights. That means that you can rest assured that your products will remain safe and sound while in transit.

It Can Amplify Your Brand

Our corrugated packaging in Macclesfield is totally customisable, helping you to increase the visibility of your brand. When it comes to creating packaging that is eye catching for customers, you are only limited by your creativity.

Whether you require a simple logo to distinguish your brand or have a message you would like to communicate, a range of printing options are available to help with this. Corrugated cardboard works well with a number of printing methods included lithography and digital printing. And with Cheshire Packaging you can work with our expert designers to create point of sale packaging to turn heads.

It Is Environmentally Friendly

As the most recycled packaging material in the EU, our corrugated packaging in Macclesfield is an affordable and environmentally friendly solution. What’s more, as it is made from only one material there is no sorting required when it comes to recycling, and it can be folded away easily until it is ready to be recycled.

What’s more, Cheshire Packaging also offers high quality Correx corrugated packaging in Macclesfield. Not only is this reusable, it is also waterproof and flexible to all design requirements.

It Is Flexible

Put simply, corrugated packaging in Macclesfield is a great choice for your brand. Due to its second-to-none flexibility and durability, there isn’t much it can’t be used for. And, what’s more, the high quality of cardboard makes it a great material to get creative with! At Cheshire Packaging, we offer corrugated packaging in Macclesfield and beyond.

5 Ways To Strut Your Stuff At Trade Shows In Manchester

Stand Out At Trade Shows With Cardboard Display Stands In Manchester

If your business is gearing up to attend a trade show this year, then you’ll want to stand out from the crowd. Despite being in one place, when it comes to exhibiting at trade shows it’s still important to catch the attention of the crowd. So, we’ve put together 5 of our biggest and best top tips to help you get seen and heard at your next event, including cardboard display stands in Manchester. Read on to find out more! 

Create A Buzz For Your Brand

Your presence at a trade show starts well before the big day. Utilise your platforms on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn to make your presence known and drum up a bit of excitement. This can be done in many different ways, including taking sneak peak and behind the scenes pictures of your display stands to holding a competition or giveaway. Many trade shows will have a hashtag you can use across social media, so use this as a way to connect with other brands and people who will be attending on the day.

The more leg work you do here, the more people are likely to come and visit you on the day. So make sure you invest some time in talking about it way ahead of opening.

Make An Eye Catching Display

Is there anything worse than a drab looking table display at a trade show? When it comes to enticing people to check out your product, make it eye catching and don’t compromise on style.

Depending on the space available to you, there are a number of ways to stand out from your competitors.

For compact spaces, strut cards are a great way to communicate your services or display your products to passers by. And the beauty of them is that you can be as creative as you like in their design. At Cheshire Packaging, we are proud producers of some of the best show cards in Manchester. You can read more about how they can help your brand here.

Another way to entice new potential clients at trade shows is through floor standing displays or speciality displays. Whether that be a roller banner or cardboard display showcasing your products. The more creative you are in your display, the better interest will be. Having your products out there and on display is a great way to reel in buyers. What’s more, it allows people to get hands on and really understand what you have to offer. 

Showcase Your Biggest Achievements

If your brand has been featured in a certain shop or on a certain popular website – shout about it! Show cards can be a fantastic way of doing this. They quickly show information about your product and where they have been featured. Don’t underestimate how far telling attendees about your recent achievements can get you. If you can demonstrate that other big names have invested in your brand, it will pique curiosity. Not to mention drum up a desire to work with you!

Be Interactive

An interactive element to your stand has the power to get you seen faster. People love getting hands on, so if you have an opportunity to get attendees involved with your product then do it! Not only will it create a buzz around your stand, but if you have a queue of people waiting to get involved with your brand, it’ll draw in a whole host of other attendees out of sheer curiosity. Getting creative with your interactive elements can show a fun side to your brand and really showcase your personality. Just make sure people know that you’re offering an interactive activity through your displays!

Giveaway A Goodie Bag

Let’s face it, we all love a freebie. Pens, notepads, stress balls, USB pens…these are all things most people enjoy receiving at a trade show. An effective way to get noticed (and remembered) is to put together a goodie bag that attendees can take away. For extra brand exposure, you could even design special cardboard carry home display boxes packed with literature and goodies. This is bound to catch the eye of other attendees and spur them on to visit your stall to get their hands on a few freebies – and hear all about your brand!

Get Your Brand Seen With Cheshire Packaging

Trade shows are a fantastic way to get your brand seen and heard in a crowded market. But it really just isn’t enough to just attend and hope for the best. The key to getting more bang for your buck at trade shows is to make yourself seen through clever design, displays and packaging of your products. If you’re attending a trade show this year and would like some support in putting together eye catching show cards, floor standing displays, or carry home boxes then contact us today to discuss your requirements. We serve customers nationwide including West Midlands, the North West and Yorkshire, so if you’re attending trade shows in Manchester this year we can support you with your display and packaging needs. 

Is your Packaging Ready for Summer?

summer packaging

It’s officially summer and at Cheshire Packaging it is our favourite time for packaging design. Although the weather hasn’t caught up with summer just yet, we’re hoping it can reach the highs of last year very soon. While we wait for the long overdue sunshine, we’re going to bring the heat with a few ‘hot’ packaging designs and creative ideas to get your products seen on the shelves or out on the road.

Choosing the Right Colour

When you say ‘seasonal packaging’ you naturally draw to colours such as reds, greens and for snowy Christmas settings, reds hearts for Valentine’s day and orange and blacks for Halloween. But surprisingly not many people think of Summer… and then the penny drops. Summer designs have become increasingly popular and more common on the shelves. When Summer arrives, people change their wardrobe colours, so why can’t they do the same for packaging.

Summer is the best time to fill your packaging with clean, fresh and bright colours that instantly catch the eye! In recent years there have been a growing number of brands who opt for exclusive collections or completely re-design their packaging to suit the warm season.

If your brand or product isn’t particularly summery, a splash of summer colour could be just what you need to boost sales and keep the inflow of interest until your busier periods.

Summer Imagery

It might seem obvious, but it can be overlooked. This works in the same thought that as Christmas you would use Christmas Trees, presents, Snowmen etc. During summer opt for classics such as a beach ball, sunshine, sunglasses or anything that can be linked to your brand. A picture of a sunny beach creates interest and will help you stand out from the un-themed packaging.


There is something about Summer that brings out the positivity in people. There’s BBQ’s every other weekend, warm weather (supposedly), beer gardens, holidays, seeing friends and family, festivals and the school holidays. With so much positive energy in the air, you’re packaging should convey the same message. Focus on spreading a positive message and the idea of the fun you can have with your product or brand during summer.

Spot a Gap

As we mentioned before, summer packaging is not just for summer products! If your product isn’t particularly summery your competitors might not be investing in it either. Summer, therefore, would be a perfect time to differentiate yourself from your closest rivals that aren’t capitalising on seasonal opportunities.

Our Top Tips for Summer Packaging

We’ve given you a few insights as to the positive effect summer packaging can have on your brand or product. If you’re choosing to go ahead with a summer redesign or overhaul here are a few tips to help.

  • Convey a positive message
  • Make sure it is relevant for the brand
  • Make sure people will still recognise the brand
  • Don’t follow the crowd – Stand out!!!
  • Use Summer imagery
  • Tell the customer it is ‘Limited Edition’
  • Use opportunities to sell more products e.g. link it to a Summer campaign such as ‘win a holiday’

Visually Attractive

Typically, cardboard display stands are both more approachable and attractive for customers. While steel or plastic displays may seem like a premium option, cardboard is often more aesthetically pleasing. That means customers are more drawn to your product and more likely to buy. Further to this, the low cost of cardboard packaging makes it fantastic for launching new products. Choosing cardboard display stands in Huddersfield for your launch is cheaper and easier to organise than premium options.

Winter is Coming! Start Planning your Christmas Packaging Early

Christmas packaging

Happy Halfway to Christmas, and at Cheshire Packaging, we’re planning for winter even earlier than the writers of Game of Thrones did – and it’s a good job as well because there is something much more terrifying heading towards us than the Army of the Dead… Christmas Shoppers!!!

Christmas is the most important date in the retail calendar. Not only do customers have a huge list of must-have items, but there is also added pressure on stores and businesses to provide outstanding customer service. If your business doesn’t stand out from the crowd and can’t deliver the expected standards of goods on time and in perfect condition, it won’t be a very Merry Christmas.

It might seem a bit ridiculous to be discussing Christmas in June, but searches for Christmas related terms start as early as September. Therefore, it is crucial that businesses prepare for the season sooner rather than later. Cheshire Packaging is the go-to for sourcing transit and in-store Christmas packaging you will need to ensure the best possible service for your customers. So here is our guide to Christmas Packaging.

Picking the Right Packaging

There are certain items that go hand in hand with Christmas. Love them or hate them Christmas jumpers, festive tipples, chocolates and so many more. If your business supplies any of these items, you need to have the right packaging to match. However, if your business is not traditionally related to Christmas that doesn’t mean you should exclude yourself.

The holiday period is a great opportunity to add a bit of festive cheer to your packaging with either limited edition or a complete packaging redesign. A festive logo, holiday message or festive colours are just a few of the potential design ideas for Christmas.

Christmas Packaging on The Move

Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year for sending products via post. With so much going on when on the road it is important that your packaging can withstand the hustle and bustle of the Christmas period. If your goods arrive at your customers’ doors battered and bruised and it isn’t in any state to give as a gift. Your reputation will be forever lost on that customer.

Transit packaging is also a fantastic opportunity to pass on a Christmas message every step of the way to your customer’s hands.

Speak to us For Christmas Packaging

If you’re looking to freshen your packaging up for the Christmas, our brand and product packaging team are ready to help. We’ve been Cheshire’s go packaging design company for over 25 years and have rapidly grown popular not only in the North West but across the whole of the North and areas down South.

Innovative & Custom Product Packaging

product packaging

The retail world is hugely competitive! No matter where your business finds itself in the industry you’re surrounded by similar functioning and similarly priced goods. So how do you convince customers to pick you? The answer stands out! The number of products on the shelves is ever expanding and if you’re thinking about a plain design with a logo and a picture – you’re likely missing out on potential sales. The modern shopper takes a matter of seconds to decide whether or not to add an item to their basket. Therefore, product packaging is a hugely important driver for customer conversions.

Product packaging is often overlooked as an important sales factor – so here are a few points consider about your packaging.

Let the Product Packaging do the Talking

Product packaging has become part of an experience. A quick YouTube search of ‘unboxing’ and you’re bombarded with videos of YouTuber’s revealing the latest products. Viewers get wrapped up in the whole experience of the packaging down to the last detail. Everything from the colours, imagery, text, weight, materials and more. The box tells a story before they’ve even got their hands on the product.

A quality package says to the consumer that the goods inside are of high quality too!

Customers will Pay more for Original Packaging

Sustainable packaging is a huge part of the modern consumer decision making process. As more and more customers become more aware of where their waste goes – they are making a conscious switch to eco-friendly or sustainable packaging. Custom product packaging can prominently display that message for your customers to see.

Customers will pay more for a quality package that has a positive impact!

Keep Your Customers Coming Back

Packaging enhances a customer’s experience and increases the memorability of a brand and encourages both new and old customers to come back. Take Starbucks as an example; every Christmas they release Christmas themed and artistic cups.

Add Value to your Business with Packaging

The sale shouldn’t and doesn’t have to be the end. If every step of a customer’s journey further enhances their decision to pick you over someone else – this adds value to your business. If your goods have been ordered online and are delivered in a fancy looking packaging that hasn’t been bumped and bruised along its journey.

Customers should enjoy buying from you and packaging plays a huge role in their satisfaction.

Showcase Your Unmissable Offers With Strut Cards

strut cards

Strut cards (also known as show cards) are a powerful tool when it comes to point of sale marketing. These handy display signs are particularly effective when it comes to letting your customers know about special offers they can take advantage of. They’re also ultra portable, which is ideal for on the go advertising.
If you think strut cards can work for your business (and we believe they work for all kinds) then check out our top tips for making the most of your strut cards with Cheshire Packaging.

Bespoke Strut Cards Help You Stand Out

The main purpose of a strut card is to bring a customers attention to products or offers quickly. Brochures and leaflets have their place but a display board is great for catching the eye of impulse buyers. Designs are available in a range of sizes from A5 to A3 depending on where they’ll be displayed, but what’s most important is your message.

Take some time to come up with a simple but effective message to attract consumers. If you want your strut card to prompt a customer to make a purchase consider the questions they’ll be asking:

  • Why should I buy it?
  • What’s the benefit of the product?
  • How big is the discount?
  • Can I get it anywhere else?

There will be a huge range of questions to think about, but a clever headline with a clear call to action is paramount.

Get Creative With High Quality Designs

At Cheshire Packaging, we pride ourselves on high quality design. How your brand looks is as important as the message you’re sending, which is reflected in your POS packaging. Why not try getting creative with your point of sale packaging?  For example, if you would like customers to visit your website you could add a QR code leading to a discount code or coupon. Or you could promote your social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat. The possibilities are almost endless!
