Printed Croft & Cole Box On Daytime TV

In the early part of the year we were challenged to design and produce a large box for the transportation of Christmas trees for a new customer who has started a mail order Christmas tree business, delivering fresh trees to your front door with 24 hours of ordering.

After many design changes along the way a final design was sampled and approved by our design team and customer.

The customer had approached 4 other box suppliers, but had no response, and we at Nene Packaging love a challenge, and belief in such a great concept.

The tree heights vary from 4ft to 8ft so initial concept was a telescopic rectangular box which could be adjusted in height to suit the size of tree, but if not secured properly it had the tendency to drop and damage the tree.

So it was decided to have 2 sizes of sleeves which could accommodate all sizes and by designing as a hexagon shape it protects the tree all the way round with no empty corners, and securing hexagon end caps and internal fitting to hold the tree pot and add -ons such as lights.

It is an economical space saving design ideally suited to transport a live tree through a courier network.

Thomas Onslow-Cole, founder and Managing director of Croft & Cole secured a slot on Daytime TV to promote his new venture with great success and many orders.
