Small confectionery companies may lack the marketing budget and visibility of larger brands, but they can still stand out on the shelf literally through their packaging designs. While small businesses in the baking and confectionery space often see packaging as a cost they need to minimize, they may be overlooking its potential to help sell their product. Your packaging is often the only thing on the shelf communicating to people. Therefore it is important to let your package tell your product's story even if that product is as something as simple as a cupcake or a macaroon (okay let's be honest, there is nothing simple about these delicious treats).


We have a range of boxes to suit your needs from smaller boxes, for sweets and macarons, to much larger boxes for cupcakes and larger items.Small gift boxes with grosgrain ribbon ties are perfect gift packaging for small items such as sweets, chocolates, macarons and other small confectionery items. Ourlarge gift boxes are perfect bakery boxes for 16 cupcake packaging withdivider inserts available to purchase separately.


Our boxes come in an array of colours with changeable grosgrain ribbon to make your packaging stand out from your competitors. Our tip is to keep in mind contrasting colours to bring out a luxury element to your packaging.
