How to pack a wreath - The Packaging Doctor

By Carl Board • Wednesday 9th December 2020

Welcome back to the surgery. It's our favourite time of year, with an increase in sales and weird and wonderful things being purchased in time for Christmas, we really get to put our creative hats on in order to protect a wide range of items being sent out. From handmade crafts, to Christmas decorations, to yummy cakes and much more.

Today in the surgery we welcome Lizzy,

Dear Doctor,

I am a florist looking for a secure way to send out my Christmas wreaths. Not only do I want them to be protected, but the solution also needs to be cost-effective and due to the size of the wreaths we are conscious about having a lot of waste.

I hope you can help

Thank you


Hi Lizzy

Thank you for coming to visit the surgery today. We can most definitely help you with your query and we must say, there is nothing better than a handmade wreath for Christmas. We completely agree that you do not want to use packaging that will leave you with waste so let us see what we can do.

Firstly, Cardboard sheets are great as they can be used to protect items in the same way that a box does. Simply use a metal ruler to score a fold, suited to the height you require and then either tape or table them into a box, this way the box will be the perfect fit.

Use in conjunction with our SpeedMan box to fill any voids to ensure the wreaths do not move around during transit.

We hope this helps.

Note: All the packaging problems our doctor receives are real queries from customers or non-customers.
