Blake, the envelope and postal packaging experts have announced a 40% growth in sales in the postal packaging sector. The company diversified into packaging as a response to requests from customers to provide solutions for mailing unusual and bulky items.
Michael Barter, managing director said, “Our move into postal packaging was instigated by a customer who came to us with a 288 page catalogue that he wanted to send out. We looked at our product offering board backs, untearable gussets but soon realised that we had a gap in our product portfolio. As Blake are the experts in postal products we felt we needed to address this so we recruited industry experts, visited exhibitions and conducting market research with end user customers and then developed a product range that answers any postal packing problem.”
“Blake is synonymous with innovation and the ability to bring something different to the industry. Therefore it wasn’t long before we were introducing creative, eye-catching postal products to what could only previously be described as a staid and boring sector. Now with the added offering of bespoke postal packaging solutions this growth continues. Envelopes are still at the core of Blake but now we can offer customers a total ‘one-stop’ destination for all packaging requirements.”
Blake now stock a large range pf packaging solutions from metallic bubble pockets in an array of exciting colours for posting luxury or gift items, metallic CD wallets, cardboard book wraps in all sizes, coloured postal tubes, poly bags and one touch postal boxes. This is all carried within their Purely Packaging range. Blake also offer a bespoke service to customers who may have specific packaging requirements; their team of experts work with customers to design and produce solutions for any packaging need.
