Box Sleeve Printing


When presentation is everything, our printed box sleeves have it all wrapped up.

When you need to be a cut above the rest, bring your packaging to life with a classy belly band or box sleeve.

Designed to bring a plain box to life or compliment a printed box, we have the expertise to help your brand look its best.

Our printed belly bands or box sleeves are printed in high quality litho onto 300gsm silk.

We then crease them to fit your box and apply double sided tape, supplied flat so they’re easy to wrap around to finish.

Should you decide to place an order with us we'll firstly require one of your boxes which we'll use to create a mock up to check that the score lines are correctly positioned and that the sleeve will fit correctly (we can return the box to you if required). Once we've made the mock up our designer will create the artwork template which we’ll send to you by email.

Interested in knowing more about our box sleeve printing then please contact us on 023 8087 8037 or email us at and one of our helpful staff will talk through the options with you.

We aim to deliver your finished box sleeves within 4 - 5 working days of proof approval. Free delivery on all UK orders.

Designs can be uploaded at the checkout stage. Files should be uploaded in PDF format as single pages; our team can give you guidance as required. Free box sleeve templates are available on request.

We offer many other finishes, lamination and printing options so please see the specifications tab.
