Advent Calendar Packaging
Finest Quality Premium Advent Calendar Gift Boxes from the UK’s leading Confectionery & Chocolate Packaging Specialist
We believe we offer the best "fill it yourself" advent calendar packaging available - a balance of traditional and alternative designs which are a real cut above the usual high street offer.
You may not know but the the process of marking off days using a calendar is believed to have started in Germany with the use of chalk marks in the home or the lighting of candles to count down the days leading to Christmas.
The first printed calendars also originated in Germany and were popularised when a newspaper offered a free gift, before being refined by their inventor Gerhard Lang to include the well known card doors we still see today. We write about this and more in a blog post you may like to read.
The Premium Deluxe Advent Calendar Range
Prior to launching them we went through an extensive design process involving commissioning a full design revision to develop two leading designs in what we've now re-labelled our Premium Deluxe range. The nostalgic Christmas Shop scene which embodies the traditional festive shop front full of colour, warmth and the innocence of childhood anticipation; and the Snow in the Park advent which presents a slightly more uncluttered,spiritual representation of Christmas with the focal point being the warmth and hope of the beautifully lit centrally located Christmas Tree.
The concept behind the Premium Deluxe advent calendar range is to offer true luxury in a premium folding carton style. Inside the deluxe laminated card gift carton is a sturdy buffer base which hold the vacuum formed insert tray in place. This really does give the box a strong, rigid feel which imbues premium quality values.
Within this range we've now added our latest design, the Christmas Wreath advent. This playful design offer depth and a really warm, vibrant festive flavour through rich colours and a classic Christmas scene. Featuring a laminated feel with foiled numbers, this addition sits shoulder to shoulder with the other designs in the range.
New riser plinth - lift your contents up closer to the advent window
For those who need the vac-forme to sit a little higher - for instance when placing thinner chocolates, candied fruits or shallower gifts such as jewellery or mini tealight candles - we've added a riser plinth. This plinth is 7mm in depth, and can be added beneath the vac-forme tray to lift it up and make it easier for customers to reach in and retrieve the contents when they're opening it at home. The plinth couldn't be simpler to assembled and insert (just fold the sides down and slot it in). This was the result of listening to your feedback...we welcome all your input because it helps us solve the problems we otherwise wouldn't know about.
The Premium Light Advent Calendar Range
With an emphasis on light-weighting even luxury packaging, and a need to offer advent calendars at different price points, we've now introduced the Premium Light Advent Calendar range with two fantastic, playful designs in the range to kick things off.
There's the fun Santa's Sleigh design featuring a white foiled design against a bold, festive red background; and the elegant and minimal Snowflake design which uses a bright silver metallic foil onto a simple white background.
These foiled advents are produced using slightly lighter weight card (still of fantastic quality we must add!) and instead of a buffer box to hold the vac-forme, we've introduced a new style of vac-forme tray which has buffer sides itself, so no base is needed. The result is a lighter weight advent which we can deliver at a lower price giving you the chance to target a children's market, diversify the products you use the advent for - or simply make a better margin!
Now You Can Send Your Advents By Post
By popular demand we've now introduced a new Advent Postal Outer (mail order box) to fit the advent calendars (or the 24 choc buffer boxes in our Premium Gift Box range). So now you can offer single advent calendars for home orders by phone or through your online shop...
