• Blake offer postal packaging to continue growth

        • Envelope suppliers, Blake have branched out into postal packaging solutions following a decline in the envelope market and the recognition that postal packaging is still in demand.

          Blake will now stock a range of packaging solutions from metallic bubble pockets, book wraps and postal tubes to DX poly bags and one touch postal boxes carried under their Purely Packaging range, selling through Office Depot, Viking, Lyreco, VOW and Spicers.

          Michael Barter, Managing Director said, “we came to it that to continue our 16 years of growth, we had to look outside of envelopes. In a difficult market we have still been fortunate to grow, however there is a point when it becomes very difficult to continue to grow share in a market where the decline is so marked, roughly 7% per annum. Our core business is still the envelope and we are committed to maintaining our market leading position but we can now provide customers with a ‘one-stop’ shop approach to all their postal packaging needs. So far the move has been successful with particular growth in the bespoke packaging market, with an in-house design team we are able to design and create anything a customer may need.”
