Get Wimbledon ready!

Get Wimbledon Ready!

As it is often said, when Wimbledon comes on to our screens, it gets everybody in the mood for Tennis and in recent years, this has been linked to an increase in sales for Tennis related products.

So you don’t get caught out this year, we have a list of products that you might find useful when protecting all things Tennis related.

Kites range of double wall cardboard sheets are the ideal solution for creating custom size boxes to protect tennis rackets. Easily cut to size, you can create the length, width and depth you require and then simply tape it together. They will remain as strong as double wall boxes. For extra protection you can also use bubble wrap, this will provide extra padding to your racket.

Our range of single wall boxes and postal boxes are the ideal solution for sending out a range of items as they are available in a variety of sizes and dimensions and therefore would be perfectly suited when sending out packs of tennis balls. They are delivered flat packed saving storage space and are both easily made up and can be sealed using Kite’s range of tapes, or if you are looking for low-cost branding you can use our custom logo tape.

Strawberries also take a leading role at Wimbledon and the summer fruit is instantly connected to Wimbledon every year. When sending out Strawberries or any other fruits, it is vital that the correct packaging is used to protect them. Kite’s range of ventilated stretch film is the ideal solution as it allows for air circulation around the wrapped pallet, preventing the build-up of bacteria as well as keeping them secure during transit. Kite sell 4 types of ventilated stretch film (hand and machine applied) to suit product requirements such as fresh food, fresh produce, cardboard, paper and environments where contents are warm.

Throughout Wimbledon, spectators often sit with a refreshing drink. Whether it’s hot, cold, freshly squeezed, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, it needs to arrive to its destination in one piece. Kite’s heavy duty boxes for bottles with dividers are specifically designed for 70cl bottles and are available with 6 or 12 dividers. Easy to assemble, our cardboard boxes for wine bottles are supplied with interlocking dividers which are inserted into the boxes to prevent bottles rattling and knocking together, reducing the likelihood of damage in transit.
