Protecting your fresh tees with paper packaging since 2019.

When it comes to small orders of garments, they're all tucked into our weatherproof paper postal bags, ensuring they stay neat and dry till they reach your customers doorstep.

These bags are an eco-warrior's dream - 100% recyclable and home-compostable! That's right, mix 'em with your kitchen scraps and they'll be back to nature in just 12 months.

For those larger orders that don't fit into our paper postal bags, we've got a plan B! They're packed up in a sturdy cardboard box, ready for their journey.

All of our bags and boxes are the triple threat of plastic-free packaging - made from 100% FSC-certified paper, entirely compostable, and fully recyclable.

Top tip: Don't throw our packaging away in your general waste bin; landfills are no place for recyclable materials!

Your mugs are safe with us.

We know they can be as fragile as a feather when they're being tossed around at the Royal Mail depot. But don't worry, we've got them covered (literally) with our extra-care packaging and sturdy boxes.

Single mugs? They get their very own bespoke, smashproof cardboard boxes to travel in. Ordering more than one mug? They'll be nestled together in a larger version of the box. 

Got a mixed order with a mug and a garment? No problemo! The mug gets an inside seat in the box, and then the whole lot is secured in a weatherproof paper postal bag.

This way, everything stays safe and snug until your order arrives at it's destination.

Attention art lovers! 🎨

Our unframed prints are rolled into a triangular cardboard tube. That nifty triangle shape helps them withstand the hustle and bustle of the postal system without a scratch, or plastic end caps.

And here's the BIG news: 📣 Our framed art prints have finally gone 100% plastic-free! 

Framing art involves glass, and we all know how fragile that can be. To keep them safe, we used to wrap them in biodegradable bubble wrap. But let's face it, that wasn't the eco-friendly superhero we wanted it to be.

And then, one of our fabulous customers dropped a golden nugget of wisdom - they led us to a supplier who makes cardboard packaging designed especially for delicate items. And boy, was it a perfect match!

After doing some rigorous testing, we're now ready to roll out this new packaging for all framed art print orders.

So, what's the secret green sauce?

Our team first places the print into the frame. Then, the frame is slid into a tailor-made protective sleeve made from hexagonal-shaped cardboard - the latest innovation in eco-packaging!

Finally, everything is slipped into a sturdy cardboard box. Et voila! Your artwork is ready for its safe and sustainable journey. 🖼️📦💚

From smashproof to sustainable...

We've put our new packaging through the wringer. Think of it as a boot camp for boxes - we've tossed, dropped, and jiggled them to make sure they're as sturdy as can be.

We've done everything short of a wrestling match to ensure your precious orders get to you in one piece, no matter what the postal service throws at them.

But hey, if you ever encounter an issue, don't sweat it! Give us a shout, send in a photo and we'll be on it. We're here to make sure every unboxing experience is a joy, not a jeopardy. investing in our future text on grey background
