Digital printing strengths showcased on new beer bottles

DURHAM Box has worked with Northumbrian Gifts to develop new packaging for 3 x 500ml bottled beer products.

The design, which features a wrap-around historical map and imagery of the locality, including the iconic Sycamore Gap, was crafted from 180cc/120bk e-flute and digitally printed on Durham Box’s Nozomi C18000 digital press.

Including a tuck-in top closure, the design choice is designed to highlight the technical capabilities of the digital press, and also aligns with Northumbrian Gifts’ sustainability goals as it is fully recyclable.

Katrina Wanless, business owner and director of Northumbrian Gifts, said, “I’m thrilled with the outcome of this collaboration. The packaging Durham Box has developed not only embodies the essence of our brand and Northumbrian heritage, but it’s also practical and eco-friendly. I’m particularly impressed with how easy it is to wrap and carry while providing a secure fit for safe transportation.”

Durham Box’s Sally Caton added, “Working with Northumbrian Gifts is always a rewarding experience. This particular project allowed us to showcase our digital printing strengths and produce a package that stands out for its design, functionality and environmental credentials.”
