Mama Bees Soap
We were approached by founder Bea of Mama Bee Soaps with a project to create the perfect packaging solution for her beautiful homemade artisan soaps. With anything lovingly homemade they come unique in size, so we had to consider the varying size of the hand cut soaps. Since these soaps contain raw honey Bea wanted the aperture window on the front of the box to be shaped like a honeycomb!
The enquiry was all undertaken by phone and email over several months and we were able to liaise with their designer who provided us designs for our template. Bea required 5 different art works for her various soap scents and required a total of 2500 boxes.
Bringing the box to life…..
When Bea first made contact with us we presented her with some preliminary options for review. Once the manufacturing material had been agreed on and a design was chosen the client supplied content. This meant we could provide samples in order for our design team to manufacture a pre-production sample for approval. We highly recommend this in all cases so nothing is left to chance. Once the initial sample was approved by the client we sent a CAD cut version to our forme maker who provided us with detail on the ‘safest’ size apertures and gutters we could create without risk of weakness or unnecessary damage to the aperture windows. We needed to ensure they met the clients requirements from a visual perspective but we also needed to be happy they would be fit for purpose.
We suggested that as it was natural soap the oils from the product could taint or stain an uncoated box board. Therefore we recommended a film lamination on the inside of the box to avoid this. The soap box was created using litho printed in full colour plus an overall machine seal.
