In 2005, we launched a simple range of high-quality collapsible gift boxes with ribbon, available from stock, aimed at small businesses and retailers who didn't have large volume requirements. We were the earliest adopters of such a wide range of folding gift boxes in the e-commerce space - a market then in its relative infancy.
Over several years we went on to develop a wider variety of slot box options and accessories, which made it easy for customers to customise their packaging to represent their brand
For our gift boxes to mean business for our customers (The ultimate goal), we conducted extensive market research to help us further understand their needs and ensure Foldabox ticked all the right, well, boxes…
To think outside the box, you must first know the box. Armed with this deep understanding of the industry and our clients' needs, we were able to move forward with innovation at the heart of our product development.
Since inception, our eco-credentials have been a priority in our design and development process. There's more on this continued commitment to sustainability through eco-friendly packaging here.
We have only ever sold (And will only ever sell) high-quality folding gift boxes that are recyclable and sturdy enough to last and be reused or repurposed - with a much longer cradle-to-grave life cycle than many other types of gift packaging.
Did you know: Collapsible gift boxes take up 50% - 95% less space compared to an equivalent-sized rigid box. Less space in storage and transport is not only convenient but also means lower energy consumption. It’s important our customers can focus their resources on the products they sell, not packaging.
Our core values have been key to our product development for more than 18 years.
Innovators, not imitators: “The Foldabox range is designed and developed in the UK by a team who respect copyright and legitimate business growth through hard work, investment, and creativity. We only work with ethical factories that meet our quality criteria. Working with long-established innovators ensures an ethical supply chain for everyone.”
Nicole Hines, Foldabox Founder and CEO
We have worked tirelessly and consistently over the years to lead the folding gift box industry through many first-of-its-kind offerings, such as unique colours, exchangeable ribbon boxes, slot decals, add-ons (Including photo frames, inserts and birthstones), and custom printing.
Today, the number of colour and size combinations we offer is virtually limitless, so our customers are assured of having their brand or topical themes accurately represented in their gift packaging.
