October can be a rather dark and gloomy month. The clocks go back and the nights draw in. But with that comes the prospect of Christmas.
Yes, we know! It’s nearly here already. You may have noticed the garden centres getting their decorations out as well as supermarkets getting stocked up on advent calendars. These days it all happens so early.
The majority of retailers consider Christmas as their most profitable season. During this period you sell more than any other, as people spruce up their houses and send millions of gifts in the UK each year.
More and more people are now choosing to shop online and each year figures rise. It seems we just don’t want to brave the shops anymore, when we could easily sit at home and order our presents to be delivered to our homes. Enter the cardboard box!
Whether you are an online retailer or have a shop you will still need to send out your orders with plenty of time to spare and avoid any damage. Too often items are sent out only to be returned by the recipient due to damage to the product. That’s why choosing a bespoke cardboard box makes so much sense.
With a bespoke box you get to choose the size, the thickness, the shape and the number you require. This keeps your overheads down, by only paying for what you need, and makes your overall process greener by not having to order a minimum amount of boxes.
At Boxtopia we can do runs of one upwards and all of our cardboard is responsibly sourced from either sustainable forests or recycling cardboard.
So, when you are looking to box up this Christmas think Boxtopia and don’t leave it too late, get those orders out on time and in one piece!
