Seasonal packaging on Stardream

This is not only a lovely, yummy, Christmas gift - it is also a wonderful printed example of packaging produced on our papers! Vincent design produced their very own limited edition selection box. Firstly, they sourced locally handmade chocolates from Sylvia and Terry based in Romney Marsh. Next, they had to design the custom packaging, which required a festive, seasonal look and feel.
However, because this was a limited run, litho printing was out of the question. As a result, the material chosen was our Stardream Quartz 285gsm which is HP Indigo ready. The beauty of this product is that it has a pearlescent, metallic shimmer but can be printed digitally to great effect and for short run lengths.
The lid was printed on the Stardream Quartz 285gsm. The box made up very cleverly, with the printed insert covering the joins and flaps on the inside of the lid. The unprinted base with the custom cut outs to hold the scrumptious confectionery is made from Stardream Sapphire, with Orion embossing in 285gsm.
The size of the box is 270 x 150x 45mm and is a nice sturdy little package. Print production is by Principal Colour based in Paddock Wood on their HPIndigo digital press.

With thanks to all at Vincent design for the yummy box ...and the chocolates as well!
