Manchester-based polythene packaging manufacturer, Duo Plastics UK, has won a contract with PhotoBox, the European market leader for online photo printing, to supply bespoke branded mailing bags.
The contract win will see Duo provide all of the printing brand’s European outbound mail order packaging, which features a vibrant green mono-layer polythene mailing bag with a silver design printed on both sides.
Lawrence Merritt, Managing Director of PhotoBox, commented: “We made a business decision early this year to move to branded polythene mailing bags to distribute our products, as it offers lightweight, weather-proof protection and ensures our products arrive perfectly with our customers whilst keeping postage costs to a minimum. Due to the nature of the products it is imperative that no water gets into the package, so polythene offers the best properties – we are delivering people’s memories, so for us to remain market leaders, our products need to arrive in picture-perfect condition.”
David Brimelow, Managing Director of Duo, said: “Our extensive experience enabled us to accommodate PhotoBox’s specialist print requirements, which like all our products are wholly manufactured within the UK.”
