Pastels have been on the trend list for a few months now, but 2018 is the time for pastels to step up. Pastels work so well within packaging because it evokes relaxation and calming effect on the consumers. Pastel colours also offer a new fresh feel to your packaging, which will draw in the consumer.

The style itself is clean and straight to the point which gives the consumer not much to think about when purchasing a product.


Everybody loves to doodle and that’s why this trend will help connect your product with your consumer. This trend really brings out the fun in any design and suggests the product is authentic and pure. This trend also works when targeting adults, as it helps remind them of their younger days, when they were once carefree and loved to doodle.

Bright and Bold

Bright colours and bold graphics text is a great way to make your packaging jump out to the consumer. Having fun and experimenting with different styles of typography, matched with vibrant colours can make your packaging truly unique.


Vintage style packaging is creeping its way into our 2018 top trends list, the key is it find the right balance between the ages. This trend brings back memories to the older consumer and brings out originality for the younger audience.

Our material is 100% recyclable.

In the past few weeks, there has been a lot of information in the media regarding plastic and the impact it is making on the environment. It isn’t easy to know what you can recycle and where.

Most of the plastic we supply are PET plastics. APET, RPET, PETG, Bio-PET. All PET plastics are 100% Recyclable.

APET – Produced with 100% natural occurring ingredients.
RPET – Produced with 30% post-consumer PET waste.

Bio-PET– Produced with 30% plant-based sources.

PET plastic is the most commonly used plastics in daily life. As a raw material, PET is recognized as a safe, non-toxic, durable, flexible material that is 100% recyclable. Packaging which is made from PET plastics can be easily identified by a #1 resin identification code can be found on the packaging. Identification codes can be found below.
