We believe the unpackaging is becoming more important than packaging! Whenever you’re with friends and they have something new, you may ask them where it came from. What’s the most regular answer? “I bought it online”. It’s not a good answer for all the brands, marketeers and online retailers that spend their lives marketing and even remarketing to make sure that they get in front of you at the right moment online. Busy gaming Google, playing a digital game of snakes and ladders, only to discover the algorithms have changed and you tumble to the second page. In the days of shopping on the high street you knew where it had come from, and it was an experience, but things are changing, and online retailers will have to change too.
Kudos Giftwrap operates an in-house studio, for design and sampling, and we manage production, storage and logistics from our own distribution centre in Norfolk. We have worked with a number of retailers to improve the unboxing experience, and we understand the security issues for some industries, the importance of the safe transit for goods. But above all we understand the opportunity there is to capture this moment for brand engagement, so consumers know and remember where they purchased from.
Invoke the age-old glamour of the department store with made-to-order gift wrap. Characterful, elegant and cost-effective, wrapping paper is an incredibly stylish way to give your products that finishing touch.
Gift-wrapping gives you an edge over competitors and presents a profit opportunity. Additionally, time-poor customers will appreciate the assistance, potentially turning them into valuable brand advocates.
Our talented designers can create hand-drawn designs, fresh graphical prints and branded imprints. We’ll work closely with you to define the messages you’d like to convey with your specialised wrapping. The final designs are available to buy in sheets or on rolls, depending on your preferences.
Increase awareness of your brand whilst fulfilling the desires and aspirations of your customers by opting for fully customised tissue paper, designed to enhance your unboxing experience.
Subtly branded tissue is never considered advertising. Within prestigious brand culture, such packaging is simply the done thing. And when your product is given as a present, branded tissue will let the receiver know that your brand is one that the giver would recommend and like to be associated with.
Tissue paper adds to the excitement of receiving a gift, implying to the recipient that what’s inside is precious and important. Give your customers this exclusive experience at a very cost-effective price. Due to minimum order quantities for printed tissue paper, the unit cost is often very low.
Create a uniformity between store colours and web deliveries with printed shred. We offer bespoke print solutions for shredded paper and tissue. From our Eco-friendly range of papers we are able to print to a Pantone colour, and then convert into Rolls, sheets or shred.

Labels can be produced in a wide range of styles and formats and we can advise on appropriate materials and print methods to achieve the finish that is best for your brand. A simple but effective embellishment, they can also be used as stylish bag seals.
Add a gorgeous finish to your plain or basic packaging, greatly enhancing the brand appeal. These bows are made from ribbon, to fit a certain size box, built entirely to customer specifications. They can be 2-way (one band around a box) or 4-way (making a cross at the top) or 2-Corner type which comes up at diagonal corners of the box.
Printed bows add an extra special touch to Corporate gifting for Prestigious brands. This niche offering is available in various styles: stick-on and pull bow styles, Metallic or Eco Kraft finish.
GIFT VOUCHERS & FOLDERS
If your business gives gift vouchers or sends important hard-copy documents, you’ll be aware of the importance of branded stationery. An outer wallet or folder enhances the experience of the recipient and promotes your brand identity.
A premium folder lends weight to valuations and other significant documents, and conveys your company’s focus on the finer points. Gift vouchers are a popular gift option to reward customer loyalty or encourage customer engagement, and the addition of a tasteful wallet elevates the voucher beyond its monetary value.
We offer a blank canvas approach and create bespoke folders that perfectly reflect your brand image.
