Durham Box’s digital solution proves a hit

Following their new digital press investment, customers of UK-based Durham Box have been benefitting from the company’s increased print capabilities. One such business being Newcastle-based tea retailer, Love Leaf Tea, who needed a presentation box for their loose leaf tea infusions.

Looking for an order quantity of 850 and requiring follow-on flexibility to change print on future runs without incurring plate costs, digital was the perfect solution for the online brand.

To create their packaging, a standard die-cut 0427 postal box was used, which suits shallow smaller products such as packs and small tea caddies as in this case. An internal fitting was designed for the box to hold the various components. The box thereafter was printed 4-colour CMYK inside and one-colour black outside with sealer varnish to the outside print.

“The presentation box is for a subscription box and a gift box we are in the process of setting up,” said Love Leaf Tea’s founder, Melanie Ieronymides. “The folk at Durham Box are great to work with and the use of digital print in this case is perfect for the application and the packaging looks so cool.”

Durham Box’s digital capability is based on a Wonderjet WD200 is a 2000mm, single pass, high speed digital printer with dryer and coater inline. It can handle a wide variety of corrugated sheets, from the thinnest microflute, through to standard doublewall board. It prints in the standard CMYK range, using water-based dye inks. This, together with a Zünd BHS150 digital cutter has enables the firm to service the needs of a wide range of customers from a number of different sectors.
