About our solution
Packaging has become a large part of Stag Print’s business. It’s what sets us apart from other printers. Which is why health and wellness company, Green Stem CBD, came to us looking for advice and assistance to produce standout boxes for its products.
They had already created their own traditional looking base design, but were unsure as to what to do next and which materials to use.
Enter Stag Print. The brief appeared simple but the solution was more complex!
We were given an old birthday card with copper foil on it and had to match the colour of the foil. After sifting through around 50 different foil colours we were finally happy we had found a match. We then recommended a decent board thickness and two-sided matt lamination for that extra premium look and feel. These were quality products that deserved quality packaging.
The next challenge was to ensure they were machine erectable and produced in nine working days. The customer was launching the products at a leading industry exhibition so the deadline could not be moved.
The order quantity was 20 SKUs x 2,500 = 50,000. Our extensive experience and modern machinery meant we were able to deliver. And to top it all, the customer won an award for best packaging at the exhibition.
As the photos show, the products look great and we had one very satisfied customer.
