Which Box is Best?
Perfect packaging for plants
When dealing with such a delicate living product it simply has to arrive in perfect condition. Here at Atlas Packaging we understand how to create the best corrugated cardboard boxes to protect live plants and flowers.
We understand the demands of the industry and know plant transportation boxes well enough to ensure that our packaging is moisture resistant and that it allows bunches of flowers to be packed closely for export.
But where the base and stems are held securely we make sure that the flower bloom has room so as not to be crushed.
Printed Plant Boxes
A choice of print finishes
We do all of this yet the beauty of the box is often just as important. It’s the first thing that your customer will see. We have a range of printing options available including digital, litho and flexo printing.
A litho finish will produce a photo style image on the box where the design is printed on to a paper outer coating around the box. But more often producers are now choosing flexo printing where the design is printed directly on to the corrugated cardboard box with either a brown or white outer layer.
The boxes are usually double fluted with a thicker flute on the inside for protection and a thinner flute on the outside so that the printed image is much clearer.
Praise for our packaging
Cornish Blooms are so impressed with the style of their flower postal box it’s even used by them as a selling point on their website. The box is very special and has a design from a local artist.
The firm from Cornwall have even been told by customers that they don’t want to put the box out for recycling as it looks so good with some customers even cutting out the flowers to use as postcards or keepsakes.
