Why printed ribbon makes sense for decorating hampers

Helen's Hampers - Personalised Luxury Gift Hampers

Let’s talk printed ribbon for a second.

Remember when you were forced to wear school uniform every day of your life and you had this love/hate relationship with it? You moaned about it of course, but then when it came down to it, there was something remarkably satisfying in not having to think about what you were going to wear every day. Well that’s printed ribbon for us.

One simple printed ribbon to dress all your hampers. It’s quite genius actually and WBC’s branding service is receiving more and more requests for it. Maybe standardisation calms us down or something, but order and uniformity appeals to many of us, and for the retailer, it gives your merchandising a harmonious visual appeal. Branding ribbon in your corporate colours, logo, name or message, reinforces your brand and gives it identity, a quick and cost effective way to turn generic  plus it just looks classy too.

Available in almost any pantone colour of your choice, below you’ll find our list prices, pantone colours and 5 reasons you should give personalised gift packaging a try. But first,   take a look at some recent companies that are using printed ribbon to dress their hampers. Evidence that some of the simple things in life don’t come free, but certainly look fabulous.

Yes Chef! Bespoke catering keeps WBC engines well-oiled

Some of you may know that during the busy Christmas sales period we call upon the amazing skills of talented Italian chef Mario Presi to keep us fed and watered. I know, utterly decadent right? Probably makes us sound like the Imelda Marcos of the gift packaging world, but in truth, it’s really just a clever ploy to keep us entirely focussed on you, and getting your Christmas orders out as fast as possible. Something to do with the way to a man’s heart, that I’m sure applies equally well to the ladies. While it’s not quite the feeding of the 5,000, the truth is we’re probably just as messy. So we appreciate Mario’s hard effort and patience.

Here are a few of the masterpieces we’ve had the pleasure to consume these past few weeks! Big thanks to all the local suppliers for the produce that’s keeping us well fed and watered.
