KIND2 – Plastic Free Packaging
It’s always a great pleasure to work with companies who aim to provide environmentally friendly products. It also gives us opportunity to research and learn what papers and products are available that offer the highest credentials for sustainability.
Recently we have worked with KIND2. KIND2 offers a range of natural vegan hair products. With the environment very high on their list of top objectives, having sustainable and plastic free packaging is high priority.
We work with a range of packaging materials but this enquiry introduced us to Delipac supplied by Denmaur papers. The material has a water based barrier solution which prevents products leaching in to the packaging. Soaps and other beauty products contain oils and this non-plastic coating solution on the inside of the box prevents the oils soaking in to the board. The Delipac material is recyclable, compostable and biodegradable and the best bit, it doesn’t contains any plastic.
Using our CAD studio and a sample pack supplied by Denmaur we worked with KIND2 to provide prototype packaging to test the material to ensure it was the right material for the job. It passed with flying colours with the non-plastic coating doing its job perfectly.
The material is also carbon balanced which means the emissions associated with the raw material sourcing and manufacturing have been offset via the World Land Trust Paper scheme. Most papers can be carbon balanced, but with Kingfisher Press being a Carbon Balanced Printer, the printing process and business activities associated with this project have also been Carbon Balanced.
Working with companies who share our respect for the environment is always a pleasure and working with KIND2, Denmaur and Delipac has been a positive learning experience.

Delipac can be used for a wide range of applications including beauty products and food related products. The fact it contains no plastic and is recyclable, compostable and bio-degradable makes it the perfect option for anyone looking for sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging.
Kingfisher Press and Cartons
Cartons and boxes come in all shapes and sizes. We have a diverse range of studio, printing and finishing equipment which gives us the ability to offer a full end to end service for packaging.
Our CAD studio can help you to find the best solution for your carton design, provide prototypes for testing, investigating closing options or as samples. Our Wideformat flatbed Jetrix can print on an area 1.5 x 3m – so if you want a huge box – we can do it!!
Using the Jetpress 720s, our High Definition digital press, we can print 1 or 100 cartons for presentations, prototypes or short run promotions. Once your design is finalised, if you require a larger volume, our Litho presses can print thousands fast and efficiently.
And to finish we have a new folder and gluing machine which has been added to our in-house finishing equipment. This fantastic piece of engineering can fold and glue boxes of all shapes and sizes. This helps to speed up workflow and offers a quicker solution than hand finishing. If your project is complex and requires hand finishing we will of course continue to offer this service.
We are confident we really do have the equipment to help you bring your project to life and with our expert knowledge and experience we are well placed to offer first class packaging solutions.
If you have a box or carton, or any print project that you would like to discuss please do get in touch with us on 01284 748210 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
