A Triathlon for Trevor

4th July 2017

A Triathlon for Trevor

Over the weekend of 17th June, Managing Director Trevor Bissett subjected himself to – we mean took part in – the Celtman, an extreme triathlon based in the stunning Scottish Highlands.

Participants in the Celtman could look forward to a 3.4km swim through the cold, deep, jellyfish-infested Atlantic waters of Loch Shieldaig – which on the day measured a brisk 11oC.

This was immediately followed by 204km of cycling through scenic – albeit windy – Highland roads, with a total climb of 2000m, followed by a 36km run through an ancient drover’s pass and across the Benn Eighe mountain range. As if not challenging enough, Trevor and his fellow triathletes were treated to driving rain and winds of over 40mph.

Trevor was admirably supported by his wife Nicky and daughter Mae, who led a well-oiled support team that kept him fed and watered for a full eight hours. During the run leg, he also found support from Karin, an international triathlete who had travelled all the way from The Netherlands to provide support.

Having finished in 55th place with a very impressive time of 13 hours and 42 minutes, we would all like to congratulate Trevor on his incredible achievement. (He still can’t convince any of the team to join him next year, though!)

Trevor would like to extend his thanks to the Celtman’s organisers and supporters who helped him get around the course successfully, as well as the locals in Torridon who provided a much-needed, carbohydrate-loaded, post-race macaroni cheese and lasagne buffet, and race sponsor Stewart Brewing, whose post-race beer was just as necessary.

Corrugated Cardboard Cut-Out Suits Caps Cases Skills to a Tee

As a leading corrugated cardboard packaging manufacturer in the area, Caps Cases is asked to turn its hand to one-off items made from cardboard materials that require some serious printing and cutting technology and techniques. This month, the challenge was a larger than life cardboard cut-out of Joe Miller, the 2010 and 2016 World long Drive Champion, to accompany him at a corporate golf day hosted by Hilton Foods at Hanbury Manor.

The overall brief was to make the cut-out as true to life as possible, including the scuff marks on Joe’s golf bag. Hilton Foods are familiar with Caps Cases attention to detail and quality – and also in its recent state-of-the-art printing technology investments that would enable the production of such a fine piece of work.

If you have a detailed, complex or business requirement for cardboard packaging, Point of Sale (POS), digitally printed display – even famous sports personality cut-outs – speak to a member of the Caps Cases sales team on Tel: 01638 667326 or complete this form with details of your requirement to see what we can do for you.

How do you like your eggs ?

At Caps Cases we pride ourselves on quality products and quality service – we aim to deliver on time, in time and we have built up a £multi million corrugated packaging business doing just that.

Another thing we pride ourselves on is helping our community whenever we can. In 2016 we supported a Three Peaks Challenge, a Paris to Nice charity cycle and several projects for local schools, charities and hospitals. Our latest challenge from a school last month was to create some egg-cellent costumes for the children of St Thomas More School in Saffron Walden to decorate and then “hatch out” of as a part of their new life assembly. I am sure you will agree that they turned out “smashingly” !

Caps Cases combines family business values with up to date product technology. Our bespoke cardboard packaging business spans 3 sites across the UK – Newmarket, Hoddesdon and Glasgow. Our multi million turnover makes us one of the largest independent sheet plant businesses in our industry in the UK. The quality of our packaging – and our egg costumes – is reflected in our outstanding quality accreditations.

Delivering Happiness with a Happiness Box

Delivering Happiness with a Happiness Box

Slated Row School in Milton Keynes is a community special school for children and young people aged 4 to 19. They cater for 182 pupils with moderate to complex special educational needs. Caps Cases were asked if we could make these special boxes & Trevor Bissett very kindly agreed to produce them free of charge.

When asked what the boxes were for the school replied with the following:

“Sixth Form students have enjoyed decorating the boxes, they chose their own pictures and drawings to decorate them. They are able to put their own objects / photos / pictures in the box to look at, which can help them to calm down. Other students have brought favourite things from home that make them feel happy. These are things like a favourite toy, a favourite photo of them with their family, pencils, stickers etc. We are also going to develop this further and add visuals of things they might like to do to make them feel happy. For example, one pupil likes joining in with ‘Boom Chikka Boom’, another likes playing with the lego. These things make them happy so we will have a photo of this activity in their box. They have all decorated their boxes with paints and collage bits to make them look individual and special.”

Dear Mr Lochhead,

On behalf of the students and staff at Slated Row School, we want to say a massive Thank You for the Happiness Boxes!

With kind regards, Slated Row School

@PillarsBrewery – all boxed up for CANpaign launch

Caps Cases, UK based craft beer packaging specialists, recently completed a project for a very untraditional – and slightly local – brewery to our Newmarket corrugated cardboard manufacturing factory.  Pillars Brewery wanted boxes at short notice for their CANpaign Launch at the start of the month.  These boxes were turned round very quickly by Caps Cases – in just 8 working days from the order, in fact – and that included some consultation on how best to display their fantastic artwork onto the box and keep the continuity of the print.  The boxes were flexo printed on our high quality TCY flexo printer and then die-cut on in one pass on our Klett 2.0 Case-maker Machine to give the best finish.

For more information on @PillarsBrewery, visit their website at http://www.pillarsbrewery.com/the-story/.  They are born and bred in Walthamstow with stockists of their craft beer in Brighton, Leamington Spa and many locations in and around London.

Customer Feedback – Jack Sealey Ltd – ECommerce Packaging

“Just to say I received my A4 box with a hardback catalogue, A5 catalogue and price list etc. in the post yesterday and it looks fantastic ! It looks good before you open it but when you open it it’s even better and the thought that went into the presentation certainly shows. The print is nice and bold – very striking. Importantly, we achieved our aim of making it so that the box didn’t get damaged or dirty in transit – it looks almost completely undamaged, the only hint of dirt is on the white lettering on the front. The courier label has been applied nice and straight. Couldn’t be any happier with it – well done everyone! I have it in my office if you want to see it.”

Case Study – Heidi Feathers ECommerce Packaging

Account Manager Hannah Ayers

“Zoe, from Heidi Feathers, approached us back in 2015 as an established business looking for innovative packing which would be eye catching to the customer but would also transport her products safely. She already had a beautiful design in mind for the print and after discussing and sampling a couple of design options for the box itself, Zoe felt this style case worked best to accentuate the print and also to provide protection in transit.”

Testimony from Zoe Fenton-Owner

“Caps Cases have been very easy to deal with and helpful on creating the correct box design. We feel packaging is very important in creating a positive experience for customers buying from us.”

 

On a recent order for Heidi Feathers, where meeting delivery times was crucial, Caps Cases were able to offer a quick turnaround on a batch of digitally printed boxes using the existing artwork which were CAD cut on our Zund D3 digital cutting table.

Box partitions are a key part of our cardboard packaging product range – you know, the cardboard divisions that separate your wine, whisky and cosmetic bottles when they are boxed up – Caps Cases are known for our expertise in making these partitions … in their millions (over 5 million in 2016) !

Premium packaging for whisky subscription clubWith their hearts and minds set on quality packaging, Yoco Club approached Caps Cases to design and manufacture a twistwrap box to use in their e-commerce business. The box needed to be functional, offering enough protection to cushion up to whisky bottles per package – even more importantly the packaging needed to be appealing to the eye and offer information about the Yoco Club whisky. The Caps Cases bespoke corrugated cardboard design protects the whisky bottles whilst our digital print capability enabled the packaging to be eye-catching and memorable.

“Premium” Packaging gets more Shelf Appeal

“Premium” Packaging gets more Shelf Appeal

Based on an article by Carolyn Heneghan Published 6th December 2016

Shoppers spend on average just 27 seconds making their shopping aisle decision. This makes shelf appeal incredibly important in capturing customers. Top quality, well- designed packaging can create a bold, consumer-facing advertisement on the shelf.

Manufacturers looking to boost top-value products should focus on creating premium packaging. With the right mix of shape, graphic design and functionality premium packaging can influence whether a consumer sees a product as more valuable and worthy of a higher price than its competition.

Packaging visual design needs to be appealing, eye-catching and have an instant impact – consider Digital Print, flood coating, 4 colour print. Alternatively simple sophistication and elegance can also give your product the edge.

Packages with high functionality are perceived as Premium by customers – so for your corrugated packaging, consider features like high performance plastic openings and closures, reinforced handles, locking devices, magnetic closures.

“Premium packaging, if executed and positioned correctly should enable manufacturers to command a higher price point and deliver incremental sales for the brand,” With the use of premium packaging already on the rise, experts predict that more manufacturers will adopt this strategy as they work to improve their top lines.

Stay ahead of YOUR competition – talk to Caps Cases today about innovating your packaging for that premium product.

WT Author present the creation of a Timeless Brand

WT Author’s new dress watch collection for men, ‘No . 1934’, was inspired by 1930s designs. This new collection of British-built timepieces has handmade leather straps and subtle 1930s references and are strictly limited to 125, 100 or just 25 pieces for each design. This is a collection that deserves very special packaging. The striking e-commerce box was created by Caps Cases using our latest technological investment machinery in Newmarket – the HP Digital Printer and our Zund Production CAD machine.

The boxes look AMAZING. They were better than I could have ever imagined. And the new Digital printing has opened up so many more ideas for us.

Praised the Creative Director of WT Author.

Caps Cases new digital print facility has enabled us to produce even higher end print inside and outside, like the excellent WT Author presentation box. Our specific e-commerce packaging features include resealable sale or return tapes, transit-safe outers and our world-famous internal dividers.

New Addition to Caps Cases Digital Cutting Capability Makes The News

“Caps Cases has sights on POS and bespoke packaging with double-beamed Zünd D3 investment”

Caps Cases says it plans to expand into new areas including the point-of-sale (POS) and bespoke packaging sectors after becoming one of the first businesses in the UK to install a double-beamed Zünd D3 digital cutting table.

Family-owned business Caps Cases was established in Newmarket in 1982 and is a specialist convertor of corrugated material, working across the packaging and retail industries. After investing in a new digital printing system, an HP Scitex 11000, the company sought a complementary finishing system that didn’t require tooling, so attended Drupa 2016 to research the new options on the market.

The show, held in Düsseldorf, Germany from May 31st to June 10th 2016, saw the debut of the new Zünd D3 cutting table. Fitted with an innovative double-beam system, up to three different modules and an intelligent controller for optimal job allocation, the Zünd D3 can effectively double users’ output potential.

“When we saw the Zünd D3 at Drupa we were impressed,” says Trevor Bissett, Managing Director of Caps Cases. “The build quality is excellent and Zünd has really thought about the functionality and productivity of being able to cut two sheets at once or have one large sheet with two heads operating on it at the same time – that was a big draw for us. So we came home from Drupa with much lighter pockets!”

The Zünd D3 L3200 was installed at Caps Cases in September. Thanks to the modular build of Zünd systems, the Zünd team was able to ‘shoehorn’ the 10 metre-long Zünd D3 ‘into quite a tight space’, says Trevor Bissett. This modularity also enables users to change tools on the fly or upgrade whole elements of the table at a later date, future-proofing against changes in business direction. All Zünd cutting tables are also designed for maximum automation and have safety features that exceed industry standards.

In addition to fitting the table the Zünd UK technician team, based in St Albans, has visited Caps Cases several times to ensure the Zünd D3 and the HP Scitex are working together perfectly. As the D3 is the first production CAD machine used by Caps Cases this has involved a learning process; formerly the company procured a new cutting form for each job which involved extra costs for the customer and subsequently needed to be stored. “As you can imagine we’ve accumulated thousands of these forms since 1982!” says Bissett.

Now, however, Caps Cases can produce new designs digitally, which means it can offer short-run, branded packaging to its customers. Fashion houses and craft beer brands are on the radar for new business, as well as more POS, where this machine really comes into its own.

The Zünd D3 L3200 is currently running two shifts a day, and may later be joined by more Zünd equipment at a later date – Caps Cases is planning a visit to Zünd UK’s dedicated demonstration suite in St Albans to see the rest of the range.”

A thoroughly Christmassy Challenge for Caps Cases

Father Christmas in red outfit next to a Caps Cases cardboard reindeerWhen we were approached by St Thomas More Primary school to transform their playground into a Winter Wonderland inclusive of a German style Christmas market, we were delighted to take up the challenge. But then it was as if all our head designer’s Christmases had come at once as we were approached in the same week by Ely St Johns School who are looking to raise funds for a new library ! A Reindeer made out of cardboardDesigner grumpy Ken loves everything about the Christmas season so he busied himself up with his team making corrugated 1.8 M x 2M shop fronts in readiness for the school Christmas bazaar ! As usual, our awesome designer went over and above the call of duty making up 10 corrugated shop fronts that would line the playground and busying himself furnishing Santa’s Grotto with a cardboard stable and a corrugated cardboard reindeer to boot ! We are ever hopeful that in the New Year, Ken will actually design something with matching enthusiasm that we may actually be paid for :).

Further Congratulations to Mrs Bissett and Mrs Jolly at St Thomas More Primary School who did a great job of assembling and decorating the shop front stands! Feedback from the parents was excellent and it was a pleasure to see so many children happily spending their parents money on sweets, gifts and other Christmas related items ! The Christmas bazaar raised in excess of £2000 for the school.

“Caps Cases combines family business values with up to date product technology.  Our bespoke cardboard packaging business spans 3 sites across the UK – Newmarket, Hoddesdon and Glasgow.  Our multi million turnover makes us one of the largest independent sheet plant businesses in our industry in the UK.  The quality of our packaging – and our reindeer – is reflected in our outstanding quality accreditations.

Caps Cases support Three Peaks Challenge raising money for Shaun Whiter and Joey Abbs

Local lad Shaun Whiter was helping his friend Joey Abbs to change a tyre near Newmarket this Summer when they were struck down by a hit-and-run driver. Shaun, a keen footballer, had to have both his legs amputated after they were crushed in the incident and Joey was also injured. Shaun needs to raise £120,000 for equipment and aftercare funds. When Caps Cases, a leading Newmarket-based corrugated box manufacturer heard that a local team were doing the Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for the boys, Managing Director Trevor Bissett immediately offered the company’s support to the team.

They set off on their grueling challenge at the start of October and the great news is that they completed the Three Peaks Challenge in just under 24 hours, and in so doing have raised almost £5000. They do have a JustGiving page, which is still able to receive donations until Monday 24th October. Here they are pictured at one of the Three Peaks.

New Additions to our Printing Fleet

We have been shopping for new equipment to make sure the quality of our products – as well as our service – are top-notch.

The shiny new HP digital printer we have bought for our brand new digital suite in Newmarket can print at 500sqm per hour, in full colour, and print onto a range of corrugated and display board in a number of different finishes.

This means we can offer our customers high-quality single pass four-colour process printing, as well as reduced lead times and no additional setup charges.

“The introduction of the new HP digital printer means we can now deliver high quality printed packaging quicker and more efficiently across the UK,” says Trevor Bissett, Caps Cases Managing Director.

“The key benefit is the faster turnaround times, but material wastage is also reduced during the production process. We are also able to offer customers printed samples prior to a production run, and late stage customisation of artwork is now an option.”

But don’t take our word for it – this summer, we are offering the opportunity for our customers and prospective customers to come and see just what this new piece of kit can do. To book a place on one of our open days or arrange a visit for yourself, just speak to the Caps Cases sales team on 01638 667326 or email sales@capscases.co.uk.

We have also got new equipment arriving soon at our other sites – Bailleston will also soon be taking delivery of another printer, and in Hoddesdon, the team have a three-colour flexo printer slotter already up and running.

All this investment in equipment means improvements in service and product quality for you – our customers. Just speak to the Caps Cases sales team using the details above for more information on what we can do for you.

Sleeping Easy

Eve Sleep is the latest company to benefit from the wide range of packaging we offer.

Eve is a purely online company that supplies quality mattresses and other bedding via mail order.

Proving that businesses in the 21st century do not need a high street shop to succeed, Eve offers quality products backed up with an innovative customer experience – all straight from the website.

Caps Cases has designed two sizes of mattress boxes that are beautifully crafted, a pleasure to look at, and perhaps most importantly, able to come out of the courier network unscathed.

We have also produced boxes for mattress protectors and sheets, and will soon be able to add pillows to this list too.

Jess, Head of New Product Development at Eve, loves the new packaging:

 “The level of service from Caps Cases has been brilliant,” she said. “Shaun [Caps Cases Creative Director] has worked tirelessly to provide innovative solutions to our packaging needs and we are really pleased with the results – nothing has been too much for them. They are reliable and their quality management is excellent.”

You too can benefit from the first-class bespoke packaging we offer – it’s easy to find out how. Just speak to our sales team on 01638 667326 or email sales@capscases.co.uk

Investing in our services

Investing in our services

We are continually investing in our equipment and facilities so we can use cutting edge technology and provide the highest level of service to our customers.

Recently, we have invested in state-of-the-art equipment, so that we can manufacture our products even quicker and with the best print quality. We have taken delivery of a three-colour flexo printer slotter machine at our Hoddesdon centre. We will shortly be taking delivery of another 3 colour flexo printer slotter at our Baillieston site, and we have a shiny new digital printer coming soon to Newmarket.

And if that wasn’t enough, we are expanding our headquarters in Newmarket by 6,500 sq ft, giving us even more space and making sure we have the capabilities to provide an exceptional service for our ever-growing customer base.

“It is really important that we continue to invest in our manufacturing equipment and centres,” explains Mark Bissett, Caps Cases Production Director. “Having the most up-to-date technology not only makes sure we can provide the best quality products for our customers, but also that our factories are as efficient and reliable as possible, with little or no downtime.”

Talk to us about how our manufacturing centres can create the exact packaging you need. Just call us on 01638 667326 or email sales@capscases.co.uk.

Caps Cases is polling in Edinburgh

Following our news back in December about producing bespoke corrugated polling booths for Cornwall Council, we are very pleased to report that we will be producing a variation of them for the City of Edinburgh Council.

We have been working very closely with the Council to create polling booths to their exact needs, made from corrugated board. Our team has designed a completely new concept that is much less expensive to produce than traditional wooden ones.

The booths are also lightweight, easy to transport and 100% recyclable. Their clever design means they can be joined together to make as many as are needed for different sized polling stations.

“We are very pleased to have received another order for our corrugated cardboard polling booths,” said Caps Cases Creative Director Shaun Stamford, who also came up with the booths’ initial design.

“The board booths offer the Council a much cheaper solution that is easier to transport and offers flexible configuration. It is brilliant that we are seeing more organisations begin turning to cardboard as an alternative to wood.”

The booths are being made in our Glasgow factory right now, and we are very excited to share these pictures of the finished article with you. We think they look great, and hope you agree!

Whether you’re looking for polling booths or something else, we can help – talk to our friendly team on 01638 667326 or sales@capscases.co.uk.
