Colton Packaging have been supplying us for 4 years, we have found them to be an extremely professional company both in terms of service and products. As a printing ink supplier it is a priority for us to use a box that is both visually impressive and well manufactured to suit our needs. Colton Packaging have been able to offer this whilst still at a competitive price. We have found that all team members at Colton’s have been very helpful and always work closely with us to ensure our orders are supplied as required, even at short notice.
