Durham Box creates stylish packaging for Northumbrian Gifts

Durham Box has recently worked with long-standing customer, Northumbrian Gifts, to develop stand-out packaging for 3 x 500ml bottled beer products. The family-run business based in Ashington, which offers a wide range of authentic, high-quality items from the local area, including beer, wine, cider, spirits and local produce, celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.

The design, which features a wrap-around historical map and imagery of the locality, including the iconic Sycamore Gap, was made from E-flute corrugated and digitally printed on their EFI Nozomi C18000 digital press. Including a tuck-in top closure, the design choice not only highlights the technical capabilities of the digital press, but also aligns with Northumbrian Gifts’ sustainability goals, being fully recyclable.

Katrina Wanless, business owner and director of Northumbrian Gifts, said, “I’m thrilled with the outcome of this collaboration. The packaging Durham Box has developed not only embodies the essence of our brand and Northumbrian heritage, but it’s also practical and eco-friendly. I’m particularly impressed with how easy it is to wrap and carry while providing a secure fit for safe transportation.”
