Printing Boxes and Bags


At Tiny Box we offer a branding opportunity, which is so important in today's competitive 'stand out' market. Brand identity has never been more valuable and here at Tiny Box we work with you to make our products part of your brand. For a minimum volume of just 50 boxes (per box size), we can turn your 1 colour design or logo into your own personalised range. Using a process of hot foil printing we print 1 colour onto our boxes and the majority of our bags. Visit our Gallery to see some of the images and names that have done just that! 
Just a few things you need to know!

All print orders need to be placed via email.  Web sales are for plain stock only. We need to find out all your details and check your artwork.
The minimum order for printed boxes is 50 units per size of box, and for small bags, 100 units.  For larger bags, the minimum order for printing is 300.
Printing prices start at £10.00. If you order between 50-100 boxes, prices then start from an additional 10p a box (plus VAT) if you order 100 boxes or more.
For our larger gift boxes or Luxury range pricing starts at £20.00. I
f you order between 50-100 boxes, prices then start from an additional 20p a box (plus VAT) if you order 100 boxes or more.
For our much larger box sizes including the snap-shuts prices range from £20.00 to £25.00 if you order between 50-100 boxes,. That's just 20p to 25p per box (plus VAT) for orders over 100.
For all new orders there is also a one-off printing block charge starting from £25 + VAT rising to £78.30 (plus VAT) for the largest size of 12x17cm. (The cost is dependent on the print size, hence the block size required.)

We print using a one-colour hot foil process. We have a large pallet of foil colours to choose from, in both matt and metallic finishes.   

Colour Options:
Please specify what colour foil you would like your logo to be printed, we cannot match Pantone, CMYK or RGB references. We have a wide ranges of foil colours so we can get a close match, however it will not be an exact match. 
Two-colour printing
Depending on your artwork we may be able to provide a two colour print. This is possible if the two colours are not interrelated or require alignment. With a two-colour print the box/bag is passed through the printer twice. In these circumstances perfect re-alignment may not be achievable.
Below are some examples of what we would and would not accept for two colour printing.

Inverted Logos
An inverted logo is where the background is solid and the artwork will be the colour of the box showing through. See image.
Wherever possible we would recommend ‘text on’ (just text onto the box rather than a solid background) to achieve the best print results. Using a text on approach ensures finer detail on your artwork.

For more information on two colour or inverted logos please do email or call us for more details: printing@tinyboxcompany.com - 01342 810 900

What we require
Should you wish to go ahead or receive a quote for printing please send over your details to printing@tinyboxcompany.com
File Format:
For best printing results we require your logo in a vector format. This will ideally be an Adobe 
Illustrator file with the file type of .ai, .eps or .pdf.
All files need to be supplied at a minimum of 300 DPI (dots per inch) or higher.
Files provided in any other format will require our Art Department to make changes and could incur a minimum charge of £15 + VAT.

Please note that images and jpeg files saved as an .eps or .pdf are not vector files and are not accepted. If you need your logo re-created our Art Department charge a rate of £15 + VAT per 30 minutes needed to rectify any issues. All files we re-work will be sent back to you in vector format for your future use. 

Please ensure all fonts are outlines to avoid changes from computer to computer. Alternatively please attach any fonts with your logo, we will not use any of your fonts commercially, only for your logo. 

Maximum Logo Size:
The maximum logo size we can print is 120 x 70mm.

Please specify in your email how big you would like your logo to be, please remember that we require a 10mm safety margin around the edges of the boxes. For example if the box you would like to have printed is 89 x 89, the maximum logo size would be 79mm on this particular box.
Please note we cannot print on the edges of the boxes, if you decide to print your logo in the corner of the box it will be 10mm away from both edges. We are only able to print onto one side of the bags. 

Custom Logo Designs:
At Tiny Box Company we can help you design a logo, we are happy to help. Logo design work will
cost a minimum of £15 + VAT, we will supply you with all logo files for future use.

The Process
As soon as you are happy to go ahead with your order, please email us with the product, quantity, your artwork and details.
We will send you a PDF proof of your artwork on the required box, so you can see the position and size of the print. We send a photo of the first box off the printing machine so you can see the final sample for sign off.
If you would like a physical sample prior to printing, this can be provided for a fee of £7.95 plus Vat, Logo print block and delivery costs.

Our Cant's
We can't print on Corrugated boxes, Clear Lidded Boxes and cello bags, because they melt or get crushed with our hot foil printing process.
