Back to Business

By Sue on 12-07-2022

Hello Loyal Customers, 

As we claw back to business after a very odd couple of years, most of us have hung in there with a positive Kiwi attitude.  This has certainly tested our patience and a whole new way of doing business.

It has opened up opportunities in the online world of paper products.  Our exclusive Magnetic closure gift boxes have serviced our world and provided business opportunities for the online retail market.

We thank you for your hard work and have now stocked up in readiness for a booming Christmas 2022, we have 7 sizes available most in Black, White or Brown kraft finish.  We have tried to maintain our pricing to a cost effective level for all our customers, to ensure we all keep our feet on the ground.

The shipping has increased hugely and the unreliability of shipping schedules has produced many challenges, which are ongoing, but we try to keep you all informed with unprecedented changes....

Moving right along, heres to a prosperous future for all business owners who have made it through!
