As Christmas approaches and thoughts move to stocking up with packaging for the busy weeks ahead, we thought we would take a look at why now might be a great time to upgrade to eco-friendly options, and introduce you to the latest products in our Flexi-Hex® range. With 8 out of 10 UK consumers surveyed saying they prefer to receive goods in environmentally friendly packaging materials (Statista 2022), now might be the time to make the switch.
The Christmas season is a pivotal time to make a lasting impression on your customers. People who come to you for gifts this year could either just buy from you once, or if they are impressed, come back time-after-time with a significant lifetime value to your company. Online shoppers will be bombarded with parcels between now and December. Your choice of packaging is no longer just about protecting the products you are sending out. It is the first interaction many customers have with your brand. This is your chance to stand out from the masses and be remembered next time they are looking to place an order.
At Forms Plus, we stock a wide range of eco-friendly packaging including lightweight, paper-based, honeycomb protective packaging options from Flexi-Hex®. With a beautiful, visually striking design, the sleeves, wraps and boxes can even be customised with your own logo or message.
Not just a pretty face, Flexi-Hex® is renowned for its strength and offers exceptional protection for bottles, glass jars, cosmetics or other fragile gifts. Sleeves are available in four sizes and can be used either with Flexi-Hex® pinch top boxes, caps and wraps or other packaging of your choice. Bottle Kits are also available to carry single bottles, or packs of up to 6 bottles at a time. These are perfect for shipping wine or spirits.
Flexi-Hex® packaging has impeccable environmental credentials. It is entirely plastic free, made from sustainable recycled paper, recyclable, biodegradable and compostable. The sleeves and kits arrive with you packed flat, are easy to assemble and efficient to ship, saving you storage and shipping costs.
In summary, sending your customers their order packed in Flexi-Hex® ensures the goods arrive in once piece, look stunning, create a memorable unboxing experience for their recipient and show that your company cares about your impact on the environment.
