Boxtopia simply adores Grantham gingerbread

Boxtopia adores Grantham gingerbread!

Did you know... we supply local company Purple Foods with printed boxes for their famous Grantham GingerbreadWe do, and we are especially proud to have them as one of our customers.

This unique local product has a great deal of history here in Grantham, dating all the way back to 1740 when the recipe was invented by William Eggleston. Recently after years of neglect, Alistair Hawken ‘the Gingerbread King of Grantham’ has resurrected the tradition of making these yummy little biscuits, allowing us to rediscover them all over again.

Alistair produces small batches of his biscuits  - all weighed and measured by hand (the good old fashioned way) giving them more individuality and making sure they are baked to his high standard, whilst promoting Grantham’s heritage. 

Alistair 

Boxtopia is one of the few companies in the area offering printing on short run bespoke boxes, so Alistair is able to impress his customers by showing them our local speciality in wonderfully printed, professional-looking boxes. These boxes emphasise the quality of the product and give him confidence in his sales.  The exciting and positive image on the box also means you are instantly aware of his brand when that delivery comes through.

We can box anything, even plants!

We can box anything, even plants!

As some of you will be aware, last week on our Face Book blog, we mentioned Just Artificial Ltd with whom we are lucky enough to do some reciprocal business. They are a great firm who produce and sell artificial plants, flowers and trees, as well as other exciting little gifts and crafts. All of their products vary in shape and size.

Whether it’s a bunch of Hydrangeas, a cheese plant for your office, or a fancy flower display arrangement for a family member, these items need to be packed and boxed accordingly, to make sure they arrive at their destination in perfect condition. After all, these kinds of packages can be extremely fragile.

Meet our client - blue box socks

Blue box socks

Meet one of our clients!

Blue Box Socks is a Doncaster-based family business which, in less than 7 years, has grown to be one of the UK’s leading suppliers of disposable socks and footwear.

The company has been operating since 2007 when proprietor, Rob Douthwaite spotted a gap in the market.

Rob explains, “I was working for a company that managed Tenpin Bowling Centres and Health Clubs. The supplier of the disposable socks that we used went out of business and we weren’t able to find another supplier locally. I realised there must be an opportunity for a local supplier, as other Bowling Centres had the same problem, so I decided to set up a web site and start a company supplying disposable socks to bowling centres and that’s how Blue Box Socks began.”
