Durham Box’s digital solution proves ideal for Love Leaf Tea
Following investment in its new digital press, Durham Box, has helped Newcastle-based tea retailer, Love Leaf Tea, who needed a presentation box for its loose leaf tea infusions.
In need of a small print run and requiring follow-on flexibility to change print on future runs without incurring plate costs, digital was the perfect solution for the online brand.
To create the packaging, a standard die-cut 0427 postal box was used, and an internal fitting was designed for the box to hold the various components. The box was printed 4-colour CMYK inside and one-colour black outside with sealer varnish to the outside print.
“The presentation box is for a subscription box and a gift box we are in the process of setting up,” said Love Leaf Tea’s founder, Melanie Ieronymides. “The folk at Durham Box are great to work with and the use of digital print in this case is perfect for the application and the packaging looks so cool.”
Durham Box’s digital capability is based on a Wonderjet WD200, a 2000mm, single pass, high speed digital printer with dryer and coater inline. It can handle a wide variety of corrugated sheets, from the thinnest microflute, through to standard doublewall board. It prints in the standard CMYK range, using water-based dye inks. This, together with a Zünd BHS150 digital cutter has enables the firm to service the needs of a wide range of customers from a number of different sectors.
