Chocisky

What could be better than whisky AND chocolate? That’s what you can find in Chocisky, an exciting new Inverness startup that makes whisky infused chocolate buttons and drops.

Entrepreneur, Stuart Baxter, combined his love for whisky and passion for good quality chocolate, to launch the brand, Chocisky.

Chocisky

Designed for both chocolate and whisky connoisseurs and as an ideal gift, Stuart was looking for a packaging option that oozed luxury.

P Wilkinson Containers’s account manager, Louisa, managed the project. William Say & Co producted a 74mm x 26 mm seamless tin base and a bespoke embossed lid. Stuart opted to emboss the ‘Chocisky’ logo on each tin lid.

This tin was manufactured at the London factory, William Say & Co. Ltd. www.wsay.co.uk

The team created a bespoke tooling using artwork supplied by the client and also managed to create a full-size sample, pressed by hand from the production tool, ahead of the full run which was presented to the Chocisky team.  With the backing of the whole team, an initial run of 10,000 products was commissioned.

 

Sweet People

Sweet People is a promotional company providing corporate gifts and sponsorship products to client firms. Previously, Sweet People were ordering their packaging solutions from manufacturers in the Far East but made the move to P. Wilkinson Containers thanks to a combination of better communication steams, enhanced eco-credentials and shorter lead times. We were able to reduce lead times from three months+ to five days, thanks to our ability to make and hold a small buffer stock on site.

We created a bespoke tin for the Sweet People from our slip lid range. The final product is a 153mm slip lid tin with embossed detail on both the body and lid, manufactured here in the UK at our William Say factory. The embossing is designed to surround the label, which together create a particularly attractive result. It was also very important for this client to include a debossed message on bottom of the tin, highlighting their brand ethics and sustainability credentials.

The Sweet People manufacturing run needs an extra process added to production due to extra ribbing on the base of the tin, and a large amount of bespoke tooling thanks to the detailed body and lid embossing. The creation of that tooling needed a clear design, communication, and approval strategy in place, and we were delighted to be able to provide this for Sweet People.

Cutter & Squidge

We were already supplying Cutter & Squidge with their popular ‘post-able’ cake tins, which were hugely popular during 2020-2021 lockdowns when they approached us to supply tins for their Hot Chocolate mix.

We have a good working relationship with C&S thanks to our high-quality packaging containers, fast turnaround, and local sourcing, which were the keys to the success in the cake tin orders. We got them up and running extremely quickly during lockdown, and we were delighted to add to their widening collection for 2022.

For the Hot Chocolate tin, we used a 74mm diameter, 160mm tall slip lid tin manufactured at our William Say factory, which is then litho printed with a bespoke design for Cutter & Squidge. Each tin includes an environmental eco message on the base to communicate the decision to source locally, and to summarize the benefits of metal recycling forever.

The Cutter & Squidge tins have a satin varnish to finish, and the plain tinplate lids all have the Cutter & Squidge logo embossed into them.
