We are not wholesalers: you are at source when you come to GWD.

We make presentation or promotional packaging and gift boxes, either to your specifications or designed here from scratch around your product or concept. Whether you require just one very special gift box or large quantities, let us know how we could help you. Corporate or promotional packaging and flower and confectionery packaging are speciality areas too.

As well as presentation packaging, we also provide finishing services for printers and design agencies. Indeed, the combination of our experience, specialist software, packaging design department, cardboard cutting/creasing equipment and hand assembly service enables GWD to assist clients with all their Presentation Packaging and Point of Sale needs.

Your options include:

  • Food safe coating
  • Vacform trays
  • Foam inserts
  • Coloured paper lining
  • Satin linings
  • Card inserts/platforms


Our creative, inventive gift packaging includes wide varieties of shapes and sizes of presentation packaging to suit the contents, whether itʼs for corporate, gift, flower or confectionery industries. If youʼre needing round chocolate boxes, bespoke fanshaped floral gift boxes for roses or animal-shaped creations for a corporate promotion, GWD can make them. In fact, we like presentation packaging challenges!


On offer for you is our in-house presentation packaging design department, creating your required bespoke shapes and sizes, from heart-shaped Valentine boxes to multidrawered or layered confectionery boxes featuring swivel effects.

Did you know?

GWD is the UKʼs largest manufacturer of show card struts. In fact, we produce a wide range of point of sale counter top display items, including leaflet dispensers.

GWD can work alongside your graphic designers, supplying packaging drawings for their design purposes. Sampling could also be a valuable part of your decision-making so mock-up gift boxes can be created for you.


Although GWD has the option of a Far East facility if volumes and lead times allow, we are proud to manufacture presentation packaging and specialty boxes in Great Britain. The work is designed here with the majority of clientsʼ presentation packaging being created in Harlow, Essex. Advantages as a result, include:

  • Easy communication – face to face meetings as required
  • Quicker delivery
  • Time-effective sampling
  • No minimum order requirement


GWD distributes boxes all over Great Britain and beyond. As we are the packaging manufacturer, it gives us control over lead times. We will always try to work with your presentation packaging delivery requirements, and know that sometimes this may include your rush jobs!
