premium packaging prototypes

Made in our professional packaging studio workshop


Create a wide range of packaging prototypes through our specialist studio and workshop. Replicate premium print effects in professional quality, perfect for photography, presentating and short run packaging.


Prototypes by packaging experts

A beautiful design visual might look great on paper, but when you try to produce it for the first time you might be in for a surprise. Does it shine right under retail lighting? Can you read the text? Will it stand out, or even stay stood up?

We don’t just offer a printing service. With decades of experience behind us, you can use our prototyping service to test structural packaging, choose final materials and trial special finishes, whilst also getting a great looking sample you can present your product with.

Pillbox is an independent packaging design and prototype studio. This means we get to design without the restrictions of a big overhead production company – we select the best materials, production processes and suppliers to suit your needs exactly, every time. Our multi-disciplinary team of creative designers, structural specialists and print experts run every job with care, and can often help you resolve issues before your product goes into production.


We can produce high quality premium packaging prototypes in our studio workshop, using a range of specialist printers and techniques.

We can run large format print and cutting on card, plastic, corrugate and even wood. We offer high definition digital print, UV cured print varnishes, metallic colours, foil transfers, laminating, embossing and debossing.

We also offer a range of hand finishing services, including rigid box making, gluing and assembly, the application of foil transfers, spray painting and press embossing.

We can print onto flexible materials and surfaces like films and plastics to create production quality prototypes.

Since everything is done in house, we have full control over the design, artwork, print, and hand making processes. We take great care hand finishing every prototype to make sure your packaging looks and feels perfect.
