5 Reasons you should be personalising your gift packaging

WBC’s branding and personalisation service is the most cost effective way to overprint your brand, logo or corporate identity onto packaging, without the hefty price tag of going bespoke. Here are 5 Reasons your business should be personalising your gift packaging this season.


There’s a reason why desks are full of pens branded with company names and logos. Your brand is the butter to your bread; it’s your face and identity. When we see a name or logo and recognise, it becomes much more than just words. In terms of marketing and promotion, branding your product, silently speaks of your reputation and quality. It carries with it huge value messages that people learn to associate with you and you alone. For small independent retailers, standing out from the competition is essential. And using branded gift packaging no longer has to cost the earth.

Most of the products in the WBC range can be over printed, from wholesale gift boxes and card cartons to wooden boxes and ‘the promotional pen’ of the food and drink world – the ‘bag for life’. Minimum order quantities vary, but start from as little as 50 pieces, and a very efficient ten day turnaround. We’ll help you through the process managing it every step of the way.

Wholesale gift boxes start from just £0.59 a unit. Add on your print cost (from just £0.79 a piece) and you could have you own branded gift packaging for as little as £1.38 a piece.
