Looking for cosmetic bottles with a difference? Look no further than our plastic Sphere Bottles, which are brand new to Ampulla! With a distinctive ball-like shape and plenty of options to configure the bottle and cap to your liking, this attractive range is ideal for your latest collection of beauty products.

These bottles are made using clear PET plastic that is strong and durable, yet flexible. PET plastic is also fully recyclable, so that you can rest assured that you are getting all the benefits that plastic packaging brings, without fearing that you are adding to the single use plastic problem that is big on the world’s agenda right now. Just make sure that your customers know how to properly dispose of their waste bottles so that they end up in the right bins and do get recycled! PET plastic is great for packaging cosmetic products as it offers good moisture and impact resistance for your products.

Variety Of Sizes Available

Our Sphere Bottles come in 4 different sizes: 100ml, 150ml, 200ml and 250ml. If you’ve got a product that you want to sell in a number of different quantities in order to target different types of consumer, then the Sphere Bottles are great because you can sell the 4 sizes without having to use bottle with different styles for each size.

Plenty Of Compatible Caps To Choose From

This includes lotions, fragrances, soaps, ointments and much more.

Standard and Luxury Look Caps Available

As well as the different functions of the caps, they also come in a variety of styles that we like to differentiate into ‘standard’ and ‘premium’ looks. The standard styles are those that are plain coloured, whilst our more luxury looking caps include those that feature glossy silver strip linings and aluminium-based caps.

Go Back In Time With Our Swing Top Bottles!

Whether it’s clothes, home decor or music; vintage style is very much in vogue in 2018. Get your drinks brand on board with this trend with our stylish Swing Top Bottles! “But what’s so good about these bottles” we hear you shout? Well, let us tell you…

Why Pick Swing Top Bottles?

They Have A Practical Design

The main attraction of Swing Top Bottles is their old-school, vintage shape paired with the ceramic swing top closures. This type of closure was invented way back in 1875 by a man called Charles de Quillfeldt in the United States, who saw the need for a change from the traditional cork stoppers. The swing top closures enabled the drinks to be sealed shut again to prevent from contamination and to keep them fresh, something which you cannot do with a cork stopper – once it’s out, it stays out. With the new stopper, the bottle could be resealed in a jiffy! Now people didn’t have to drink their whole beverage at once, as it could be resealed and kept for later without the fear of it spilling or spoiling.

They’re Oozing With Nostalgia

If we were to arrange a lifestyle magazine shoot to show off our Swing Top Bottles, we would start with a sunny day and a red checked picnic blanket! Just imagine for a minute, that you’re sitting on a picnic blanket in a field, surrounded by hampers of food, kids and animals running about, no phones or iPads there to distract you from the great outdoors. Then imagine cracking open a Swing Top Bottle filled with ice cold homemade lemonade… We think that these bottles have the ability to take your mind back to a simpler time such as the 50’s and 60’s – even if you were never there in the first place!

They Are Luxurious

The Swing Top Bottles are made from high quality glass, which has been moulded into a faceted design on the larger bottles. The way that the light bounces off these facets creates an attractive glimmering illusion and makes the bottles look even more luxurious to customers! The fact that they are made out of glass instead of plastic is also an additional factor into making your end product more valuable to your consumers, as they feel more heavy and valuable compared to flexible plastic.

There Are Lots Of Sizes Available!

Our Swing Top Bottles come in sizes ranging from 100ml to 1 Litre, all of which come complete with the ceramic stopper and clasp. This gives you the flexibility to expand your product range if you so desire, with options to offer single servings and family sized portions of your beverages. They would look at home both on the stalls of a farmers market and the shelves of a major supermarket, suitable for small and large businesses alike. They offer plenty of room to add your branded labels and stickers around the body of the bottle, but you could even tie labels around the long bottlenecks for a more rustic look!

What Can You Use Them For?

So many types of products can be stored in these fantastic bottles, including:

  • Soft Drinks;
  • Smoothies;
  • Flavoured Milk;
  • Spirits;
  • even Oils and Dressings!

But the decision is up to you! Check out the full range by clicking here.

Gift-Wrapping Tips

gift-wrapping tips header

Wrapping your presents is probably the most boring part of the lead up to Christmas and we often leave it all until the last minute to do! Why not take wrapping seriously this year and add a stylish aesthetic to your presents? Your friends and family will love the extra effort that you’ve gone to and they’ll look fantastic under the Christmas tree! Here are a few gift-wrapping tips to help you make your presents look the very best they can possibly be.

Choose Complimenting Colours

The classic Christmas colours are gold, red and green, but you can also get creative and mix things up a bit! If you’re using ribbon in your wrapping, you simply can’t go wrong with red paper paired with gold ribbon. If you’re using patterned paper, it might be best to steer clear of using ribbon at all, as it can clash and look jarring. If you want to save a bit of money, why not wrap your gifts in newspaper? It actually looks pretty stylish (just make sure to check that there are no weird or depressing headlines on them first)! Finish by tying it up with string for a true rustic effect.

Use Double Sided Tape

Sticky tape is essential to gift wrapping, but it can make your efforts look messy, which is not ideal. To get around this problem, simply find yourself some double sided sticky tape and use that to stick the undersides of your wrapping paper together. You won’t believe how much neater your gifts will look!

Use Wired Ribbon

If you are using ribbon, we recommend using wired ribbon as it is very easy to form into standalone bows. Just be careful not to leave any wire sticking out of the ribbon after you cut a piece off, as it can really hurt if it catches your fingers! You can find this type of ribbon online and in any good crafts store. If you’re feeling extra creative, why not take a look at this great tutorial from wikiHow which talks you through how to create different types of bow using wired ribbon?

Stick To Clean, Sharp Edges

One of our top gift-wrapping tips to get your presents looking and feeling professional is to make sure that the edge of your paper aligns with the edge of the packaging. This creates a seamless look! A great trick is also to fold over the edge of your wrapping paper to hide any frayed paper on the exposed cut edges. This also makes it easier for you to line up the edges of the paper to the edges of your packaging. And if all else fails, ribbon can hide a multitude of sins!
