It's the first week of November and Christmas is under 2 months away, while a lot of people won't start talking about Christmas for another month or so it's very much already on the agenda at Elite Plastics.
If you do a large portion of your Christmas gift shopping on the internet for things such as clothes and shoes etc the likelihood is that you've already come across a mailing bag made by us. We produce mailing bags for some of the largest online retailers in the UK right down to smaller independent online retailers.
Being one of the leading manufacturers of both plain and printed mailing bags in the UK we produce tens of millions of them in the short built up to Christmas for a large number of the UK's leading online and high street retailers. The Christmas orders for mailing bags are already flowing in and now at this time of year many of our extrusion, printing and conversion lines become dedicated to the 24/7 production of mailing bags in order to meet the huge spike in demand that results from Christmas.
It's not an easy task, with the amount of online shopping people do each Christmas rapidly increasing the result is growing demand levels for mailing bags from our customers every year. It's definitely a challenge but it's one that we thrive on and rise to year after year, due to our extensive operational planning, preparation and production capacity we are able to meet the short and demanding lead times and deliver the high quality mailing bags to ensure our customers can package and send their products securely, cost effectively and printed with excellent branding. All in time to be used by Christmas!
It is through Elite's high service levels, product quality, low lead times and cost effectiveness that every year we retain and grow the business we do for the online retail industry in the UK. Each year we implement the latest innovations to ensure we produce products that excel and keep us at the forefront. Our newest innovation this year is our capability to produce mailing bags in a sugarcane based polythene, replacing oil, offering huge environmental benefits. The marketing opportunities and potential of Sugarcane polythene is equally huge due to our printing capabilities on mailing bags.
We work alongside our customers every step of the way offering expert advice, helping them develop a mailing bag perfect for their requirements and needs from simple things such as size, colour, material all the way through to print origination that is supported by our in house print origination team.
So when the 25th of December comes around and you get that cheesy Christmas jumper you asked for don't be too surprised if Santa delivered it in an Elite Plastics made mailing bag. Also Santa if you are reading this, we also make coal bags too.
