Greetings from New Zealand, I hope that you are well. My name is Tim Stone and I am looking for an OEM supplier of high quality retail packaging for our Smart Water product range.
You can view the Smart Water product range on our website www.smartwatertech.co.nz. The parent company is Ivent Solutions and our site is www.ivent.co.nz, I invite you to review these websites at your leisure to learn about our companies.
Our previous supplier of packaging in China has had ongoing quality issues and we are now looking for a new company to deal with. We are also releasing a brand new product range and with this we want to upgrade the existing packaging that we use. I have attached one of the files for you to review of the new design. I must advise that I am not an expert at all on packaging or the available materials so we are very much looking for a business that can support us with good technical knowledge and advice. We need guidance on the best solution for this packaging.
The packaging at present is a white corrugated carton, with full colour glossy printing. We would like to move to a corrugated board that has a much better printed finish that is satin on the outside, and black on the inside (when the customer opens the box). There are many inserts as well inside the box that would also be black corrugated card.
If you are interested in talking further on this project please let me know. There is a large volume of retail cartons and packaging inserts that I would like to discuss and get quotes/samples on. Once we have your reply I will send through the various files for your reference.
Hope to hear from you soon and thanking you in advance for your reply.
Please find attached some further information on the designs that we need. There are actually a lot more cartons we need made, but I think this is a good place to start so you can research your product range and start to get some options to present to us. Please also note the following:
- Smart Water starter pack retail carton.ai – This file is the outline of the “large” retail carton that we use.
- Smart Water small retail carton.ai – This file is the outline for the “small” retail carton that we use.
- 01234 SW Desk-Mount Starter Pack V4.pdf – This is the artwork for the desk mount starter pack, this uses the large size retail carton.
- 01234 SW Tank Unit Small V5.pdf – This is the artwork for the tank unit carton, this uses the small size retail carton.
- 01256 SW Wall-Mount Starter Pack V2.pdf – This is the artwork for the wall mount starter pack, this uses the large size retail carton.
- 01257 SW Pump Controller Pack V1.pdf – This is the artwork for the pump controller carton, this uses the small size retail carton.
- 01258 SW WiFi Gateway Starter Pack V1.pdf – This is the artwork for the WiFi gateway starter pack, this uses the large size retail carton.
Please let me know if you have any questions on any of the above information. At present we use a glossy white corrugated carton for printing, but I am looking for more of a high quality satin finish if possible. I am not an expert (at all!) on packaging so I am hoping you can do some research for us and present some higher quality options. I want to see some different products but ultimately we want a quality finish on the packaging so our customers are impressed when they see the product on the shelf in shops. I hope you can understand my meaning. I can send you samples of our current packaging if you like…? However we want to move away from the current packaging to a better quality board.
