Stylish and effective packaging at the drop of a hat

In the last blog we considered one particular royal connection that GWD are fortunate enough to have, and whilst we’re on the subject of royals, we now turn our attention to Royal Ascot – the glamorous annual event that takes place this week.  Racing enthusiasts will no doubt be licking their lips and looking forward to some exhilarating races; whilst plenty of the aristocracy will no doubt be strutting around in their finery.

Round pegs into round holes – circular packaging

If someone asked you to picture a box, what would it look like?  Would it have straight lines and right angles?  Would it be quadrilateral, and would all the sides be congruent?  If that’s what your understanding of boxes is, unfortunately we’re going to have to break it you – boxes can be much, much more than that.  If you’re looking for something a little bit different and with a few less corners, then a round box could be precisely the thing.

Sending coals to Newcastle – a unique packaging job

In the Western world we’re well into our New Year, and 2013 has brought us cold weather and…well, more cold weather.  However, on Sunday, over in the Far East, Chinese New Year celebrations began.  Also referred to as the ‘Spring Festival’ in China, Chinese New Year is the most important annual Chinese holiday and this year celebrates the year of the snake.  GWD has had a couple of orders related to the celebration of Chinese New Year and given that they are quite off the wall I thought we’d share them with you.
