As a company with clients all over the UK and across other countries as well we naturally have to ship print and goods all over the place to both businesses and home addresses. The one constant in this is that the items need to be well packaged to survive the shipment process. To do this we make sure we use the strongest yet environmental solution to ensure goods reach their destination safely.

Corn starch packaging chips

Corn starch packaging chips used to ensure print is safely shipped

It is one thing to print item such as leaflets and posters using environmentally sound materials and inks. We then have to get the final items to clients unless they wish to pickup from our Basingstoke print production site. We have to use double walled boxes to protect the materials from damage as single walled boxes aren’t robust enough.  For the same reason we have to use packaging chips to fill any empty space, otherwise the boxes get crushed and materials can be damaged.  We use corn starch chips which are 100% biodegradable rather than plastic bubble wrap or other plastic filling for anything that fits in our normal boxes. We do still use bubble wrap on large packaged items such as exhibition stands and signage. If anyone can recommend a good solution for this we would love to hear.
