Customer Success Stories – You Share Your Photos!

We absolutely love seeing all the creative and wonderful things that happen to our jars and bottles after they leave our warehouse, as looking at row after row of empty bottles each day does lose its appeal. So last week, we asked our lovely customers to send in some photos of their finished products so we could admire and show them off for you and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response! We apologise that we have not been able to feature all the photos we have been sent, but here is a wide selection of our favourite customer success stories!

Imagination Station

Who knew you could turn a simple plastic jar into something so beautiful? Well the brains behind Imagination Station have done just that. They’ve used our 200ml Clear PET Plastic Jars to create these stunning works of art that are actually holding slime kits within! We don’t even know where to start with the sheer amount of work and skill it would take to make just one of these pots, so we take our hats off to you. Definitely one of the most unusual customer photos we’ve ever been sent!

Thanks to Sarah Bleasdale for sending these photos in.

Kamila Aubre Botanical Perfume

From the visual exuberance to understated style; Kamila Aubre Botanical Perfume uses our 15ml Ace Glass Fragrance Bottles to bottle parfum extracts, which are traditionally made in small splash bottles. We think the simple, yet beautiful labels that these bottles are branded with add to the luxurious look of the finished product.

Thanks to Kamila Aubre for sending these photos in.

Koivulehdon Hunaja Oy

Koivulehdon Hunaja Oy

This birchgrove honey all the from Finland is packaged in our Glass Verrine Jars and finished off with eye-catching labels that perfectly let you know exactly what the product is (even if you don’t speak Finnish)! Koivulehdon Hunaja Oy is a relatively new company founded in 2017 and we think that they are doing a fantastic job with branding so far!

Thanks to Mehiläistarhaaja Humalajoki for sending these photos in.

That Soap

The rustic labels that That Soap uses to brand their ranges of beauty products are absolutely ideal for the type of products that they sell. They reflect the artisan, homemade products within whilst also looking professional and fit for the shelves of mass retailers. That Soap have used our Glass Ointment Jars and Amber Glass Dropper Bottles with pipettes to package their range of fantastic products in which are made all the way down in the South of France, for which we are very grateful!

Thanks to Julie Wackrill for sending these photos in.

Lilac And Thyme

Our Clear PET Plastic Jars are have also been used by Lilac And Thyme to package face masks, hand creams and foot rubs, with the clear plastic showing off the tempting product within and the aluminium lids finishing the look with style!

Thanks to Bernice Drummond for sending these photos in.

No Frills Cosmetics

No Frills Cosmetics manufacture moisturiser and beauty serum using our Airless Dispenser Bottles as packaging, which are great for products made from all natural ingredients as product contamination is reduced, getting rid of the need to use preservatives. No Frills Cosmetics’ products are completely natural and designed for sensitive skin and not tested on animals. But the best thing about these cosmetics? A portion of the sales of each product is donated to the founder’s cancer support group and other nominated cancer charities! What a truly fantastic and heartwarming reason for starting up a business.

Thanks to Ann Mason for sending in these photos.

Skinderella

Skinderella is a range of facial beauty products made for GlossGods that are packaged in a variety of our stunning Black PET Plastic Bottles. The glossy black plastic bottles combined with their simple, one colour design labels makes for a striking finished product!

Thanks to Anna Hellqvist for sending these photos in.

Pomme d’Or Gift Ideas

chill pill bath bombs

Now we don’t like to pick favourites, but these bath bombs from Pomme d’Or Gift Ideas might just take the top spot in our eyes… They’ve used our 1 Litre Round Clear PET Jar & 110mm White Screw Lid for this ingenious novelty product: Chill Pills Bath Bombs. What a great gift for friends and family who need a laugh! The clever labels are actually super simple in design, yet manage to jazz up the plain, clear jar to a professional standard – no wonder it’s their best seller. Top job guys!

Thanks to Anne-Marie Fowler for sending these photos in.

Velouté Body & Face Cream

These gorgeous face and body creams from Velouté Body Cream is packaged in our Black Arese Jars to give it that luxury look that it oozes. The black and gold colouring together elevates this product to the top end of the market, with customers also reporting that the shive within the lid of the jar is great for keeping the cream fresher longer!

Thanks to Carolyn Simpson for sending these photos in.

Damask Skincare

Damask Skincare‘s Hair Growth Oil is packaged neatly in our 50ml Glass Flask Bottle, which we think gives it a luxurious look and feel for the customers. It’s the perfect choice for this miracle oil!

Big Green Tree Natural Skincare

These hand and body washes wouldn’t look out of place on the shelves of The Body Shop or Boots, but they are in fact made by Big Green Tree Natural Skincare who are based on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire! Using our 150ml and 250ml Square PET Bottles and lotion pumps, they have created this sleek, stylish range of skincare products to keep Britons moisturised. If the names are anything to go by, we bet these products smell amazing…

Thanks to Helen Frear for sending these photos in.

Ma’s Bars

Ma’s Bars make sure to use locally sourced ingredients in their handmade ranges of beauty products, making them a great advocate for small business in Greater Manchester, where they are based. That’s why we’re happy that they have also chosen a local packaging supplier with Ampulla Packaging, as we too are from the area! These products have been packaged using our Clear PET Boston Bottles and lotion pumps.

Thanks to Helen Robinson for sending these photos in.

The Pamper Box

The Pamper Box offers bath and body goodies that are handmade fresh to order via their Facebook page, using a number of different items from our packaging ranges. For their jelly soaps they use our 120ml Clear Round Plastic Food Pots, the shower whips are packaged in our 150ml Clear Wide Neck PET Plastic Jars and finally, the foaming salts are bottled in our 250ml Clear Plastic Juice Bottles!

Thanks to Laura Burton for sending these photos in.

Birch Lea Soaperie

Nothing says rustic like the branding and labels that Birch Lea Soaperie have used on their fantastic sugar scrubs and body butters! Instead of simply sticking an adhesive label on, they’ve gone the extra mile and used string to tie their labels around the 200ml Clear Wide Neck PET Plastic Jars, which perfectly suits the handmade nature of the products. We love it and I’m sure their customers do too!

Thanks to Leanne Seymour for sending these photos in.

The Little Blue Hen Soap Crafting Company

These artisan soaps from The Little Blue Hen Soap Crafting Company is a vegan business, meaning that their soaps do not contain any animal products and are not tested on animals. They’ve even gone plastic free in order to reduce their impact on the environment! The soaps pictured above are packaged in our Glass Ointment Jars and Glass Simplicity Bottles.

Thanks to Michelle for sending these photos in.

Dandy Candies

The retro sweets that Dandy Candy sell offer their customers a nostalgic look back at their own childhoods! We absolutely love the old-school branding of the jars and the clever lollipop logo, and they even give customers to option to add a personalised message if they are sending sweets as a gift. Customers apparently love the look of the shine of the jar and the foil on the labels, which is very eye catching. Get the look yourself with our range of Plastic Sweet Jars!

Thanks to Sammie Key for sending in these photos.

Rainflower

Rainflower offers a wide range of products, including soaps, candles, hair care products and even gardening gifts! For their range of hand creams, Rainflower use our 50ml and 100ml PET Plastic Jars paired with aluminium lids, which are finished off with a lovely floral label on the lid.

Thanks to Sandra Robertson for sending these photos in.

Singleton Skincare

These beautiful cosmetics and candles are from Singleton Skincare, a producer of home and beauty items. We love the simple, yet distinctive, logo that is embossed across the whole range of products, which when combined with the mellow pastel colours of the labels, makes for a very attractive brand! Singleton Skincare has used our Aluminium Jars, Glass Votives and Plastic Lip Balm Tubes to package the products seen above.

Thanks to Sarah Singleton for sending these photos in.

K Tang

 

Last, but certainly not least, we have London-based K Tang; which is packaged in our 180ml Clear Plastic Squeezer Bottles. K Tang is a ketchup made using kimchi, a traditional Korean pickled vegetable side dish, which gives it a distinctive tang that is perfect for burgers, chips and avocado (apparently)! We think the design of the logo fits K Tang’s young, alternative target market down to a tee!

Thanks to Stephan Fowler for sending these photos in.

New Year, New Ideas!

Copyright: <a href='https://www.123rf.com/profile_fabrikacrimea'>fabrikacrimea / 123RF Stock Photo</a>

As 2017 draws to a close, we’ve started to think about what you can do to gear up your business for the New Year. There are new packaging trends to consider, as well as the projected growth of your business, in order to continue to make your business a success in 2018. Check out a few of our ideas for packaging and trends to follow for the New Year and, if you have any tips yourself, just let us know in the comments!

Be Environmentally Friendly

As you are probably already aware of, there is a big push for disposable packaging to be fully recyclable in order to contribute towards to fight against climate change and pollution of our planet (Blue Planet 2 anybody?). Here at Ampulla, we have plenty of recyclable plastic packaging on offer, as well as glass. Our most recent additions to our collection are the Edge Cosmetic Jars, which are made from recyclable polypropylene plastic in a choice of three sizes (200ml, 350ml and 500ml) and two colours (black and white). They are ideal for packaging your range of cosmetics, such as face creams, moisturisers and hair styling wax, just to name a few examples.

As well as thinking hard about your choice of packaging, you need to think about how you get this message across to your customer, who may still simply throw the empty container into landfill, which defeats the purpose of your packaging entirely! The best way to make it clear is to place the information in an obvious place on your labelling, or even have suggestions on what your customers can do with the empty packaging once the product inside has been used up. This could simply include the proper disposal information, or tips on how to up-cycle the jars, bottles or tubs into something beautiful!

Get Stylish

Instead of opting for generic-shaped jars and bottles, why not go for something a little more stylish and that will stand out on the shelf in the New Year? We have plenty of great looking options that offer something a little different from the norm.

Our Swing Top Bottles are a rustic alternative to standard glass bottles, with a ceramic stopper that is attached with a metal clasp so you can never lose it! It’s ideal for storing milkshakes, juices and cordials, especially if these products are made by small, local businesses! Another old-fashioned glass products are our Le Parfait Jars, which also come with a clasped lid. They come in a massive variety of sizes, from 500ml up to 3 litres, with distinctive, orange rubber-lined lids that lock in your product’s freshness. They’re great for jams, pickles, flour, rice and so much more.

If you like the look of cardboard, but it isn’t suitable or practical to store your product in, then our Cardboard Effect Bottles are perfect for you! They are made from HDPE plastic, which is lightweight, durable and can be recycled. They’d be perfect for packaging liquid-like products that have been produced ethically, as the cardboard texture puts across this message in a stylish way. Finally, for all the jam makers out there, we have our Hexagonal Glass Jars. They have distinctive ridged edges that give you a firm grip in hand, as well as looking fantastic!

Think Outside Of The Box!

If the options above aren’t wacky enough for your liking, no fear! These items ought to get you excited…

Behold our 700ml Eagle Decanter! There’s no better way to make a statement than to package your spirits and liqueurs in this unique glass bottle, and it would look fantastic in your customers’ drinks cabinets. The head of the majestic eagle acts as a glass lid, complete with a cork stopper enclosed within. Alternatively, you can serve up cocktails of your choice in our 500ml Quattro Stag Jars, which come with stylish, screw on, gold lids and are embossed with the brand trademark. It also features a useful glass handle so that you can drink from it as easily as you would with a mug!

Finally, our most novelty items are our Animal-Shaped Plastic Lunch Pots. They come in a choice of animals, including Elephants and Tortoises, and would make the perfect lunch pack for kids to take to school! They would also be fantastic for packaging children’s meals in cafes and supermarkets.
