PRINTED CARDBOARD SUPPLEMENT DISPENSER

Industry: Medical & Health
Finish: Die-cutting
Special Finish: Fulfilment

Printed supplement dispenser for health company. The individually tailored supplements are fulfilled into the printed carton dispenser. They are then inserted into the outer mailing box and despatched to the customer. Our task was to design & print a box that could hold the supplements securely. In addition the dispenser must allow easy release of each supplement sachet. We designed and manufactured the outer mailing box to prevent damamge to the dispenser. We then picked, packed and delivered finished boxes for our client to post out individually.

A BOX DESIGN THAT PROTECTS THE PRODUCT IN THE POST

A damaged or crushed carton would result in the sachets not being dispensed properly. Therefore, a printed supplement dispenser needs to arrive with the customer in perfect condition.   By engineering the outer mailing box in E-flute meant that the internal dispenser would be protected from anything the postal system could throw at it. Designed without the need for a glue strip meant that the self locking design could be produced quickly and for less cost. The E Flute material chosen is an FSC board that is fully recyclable reducing the environmental impact of production.

Cardboard engineering can involve several prototypes and testing. Our team have vast experience which results is much faster production times from ‘Concept to Completion’.
