With 180 years of packaging design and production experience we know how to design unique packaging that will work for you, your customer, and your production processes.

Whether you need luxury packaging with a second life with a box your customer will keep forever, or simple minimal packaging with green credentials, we can get you the look and protection you need. Our services can be tailored to fit your needs and budget, whether you need photography, illustration, graphic design, structural design or production.

 
 
 

Cosmetics packaging prototypes

Professional production quality cosmetics prototypes

We can produce high cosmetics prototypes using a wide selection of techniques, often all within our in house studio workshop. We can apply foil and coloured transfers to bottles, tubes, tubs and pots.

Our digital press and range of finishing machines can be used to replicate premium print effects including embossing, foiling, spot gloss and metallic inks – perfect for creating high quality luxury boxes, premium rigid boxes and mail order subscription boxes. We take great care in colour matching and hand finishing every prototype to make sure your packaging looks and feels perfect.

We can also design, prototype and produce uniquely shaped glass bottles, finished with your choice of lid style and produced in glass or resin, either solid or filled.

Cosmetics packaging production

Consistent production quality

Getting consistent printed effects between your product and packaging can be tricky to get right, which is why we use trusted suppliers and oversee the production of each and every print and mould job. We can offer great production lead times with suppliers we work with repeatedly, so you can trust that repeat orders will be consistent.

Our trusted cosmetics packaging suppliers

We know that consistency and quality is key to producing a quality product, which is why we never outsource our packaging production to the far east - all our cans, bottles and boxes are made in the UK and EU, which means you can get a high quality product with much better lead times, and very competitive pricing.
