For over 23 years, Expanded Polystyrene Supplies have been supplying packaging for all the seasonal hampers to the worlds’ most famous department store. Polystyrene was chosen, due to the hampers having many breakable glass items inside, making each hamper heavy. The polystyrene not only protected each item but also saved on weight compared to other traditional packaging methods. This also kept all the products in a presentable manner. The packaging consisted of several polystyrene trays per hamper which had cutouts to match the products. This ensured all the items stayed in position and would be in-cased in a protective package. Due to the popularity of the seasonal hampers, the quantities grew to over 19,000 a year, which was equivalent to 900 of our 8ft x 4ft x 2ft blocks of polystyrene.

Design And Production

Every year we would start off by designing each hamper.  This includes laying each item out in several mock up trays. Each tray would be designed with weight, height, colour and design of labels on each item in mind, while keeping enough distance in between.  Once designs had been passed, a sample of each hamper was produced. Each sample tray would be placed inside their outer packaging either made from cardboard, wicker, leather or wood. The design process would take approximately 2 - 3 weeks and once the samples had been passed, production on the full order could start.
