Open Day Success

The Open Day 2017 was a great success, with many visitors from the local area coming to have a proper look around the workshop, to see how the boxes are made, and the many designs, shapes and sizes there are to choose. Despite a very rainy day, large numbers of visitors came in a steady flow throughout the day, to be welcomed with tea, coffee and cake, plus an exclusive look at our very skilled staff making boxes of all kinds. The particular challenge became the many rolls of “own paper” that visitors brought, for us to make into various boxes of their choice, but nothing was too much to defeat the amazing workshop staff. Many went home very chuffed with an entirely unique and bespoke box for their home. One set of wooden magazine holders that needed covering to cheer them up, was a particular challenge, as they had curved edges and round holes to cover, so we gave this to James (co-founder of The Empty Box Company), whose expertise was quickly put into action, watched by an audience of fascinated onlookers. Plus towards the end we had quite a few “Make Your Own Box” sessions with the children. Lots of craft bags were taken home, and we have a few spare so do request a free one with any order, whilst stocks last.

We are awaiting to hear how much was raised for the local charity Chicks from the Prize Draw, so will keep you posted! An enjoyable day for everyone, and a good way to spend a rainy Sunday!

I have recently received my order from you, and would just like to thank you all so much for my wedding dress box. It was a surprise to see such a wonderful designed box, which had a lot of storage space. I have searched high and low for a large box and have only been successful with yourself.
Very rarely in this busy world we lead do I feel strongly enough to put “pen to paper” however having taken delivery of my wedding dress travel box this morning I feel compelled to write to you! I must admit that initially, I hesitated about placing an order for what seemed effectively like just an empty box. Well, I stand corrected! The box is absolutely stunning and of amazing quality – I simply had to express my thanks for supplying such a beautiful product. Rest assured it will be displayed with pride on top of my wardrobe.
Wow! What a beautiful box for my wedding dress. It was so sad to pack my dress away, but your box was just perfect. My Mum thought I was ordering just an ordinary plain box! No way! Thank you so much.
I just wanted to send a big thank you for my lovely wedding dress box, which I received last week. I am very impressed by the attention to detail – from the quality beautiful box itself, to the way in which it was packed to ensure it arrived in pristine condition. All for a very reasonable price! My dress fits perfectly inside and the box has pride of place in my wardrobe.
Just wanted to write and say how pleased I am with my Wedding Dress Box, my dress fits perfectly and the design (essence gold) is exactly in keeping with my wedding colour scheme. The dress box is so good, I’ve just ordered a tiara box to match!
