At the November meeting of the Lively Business Club, Clive Lewin of Sachets Direct gave an illustrated talk about how his sugar sachets and sticks are made.
Traditionally sugar sachets were printed using various means which necessitated making different colour plates to create colour pictures which made it a very expensive process.
Sachets Direct can print small quantities at affordable prices because they use a specialist UV digital printing process that prints on the paper/plastic material that is required to make the sachets.
Beautiful full colour images can be reproduced on sugar sachets for celebrations like weddings – or promotional events like exhibitions. This can include photos and logos in full colour.
Hotels can have a high quality picture showing off their facilities, rooms, dining areas or leisure facilities in full colour at an affordable cost.
It took Clive a while to find the right printer and material and even longer to set everything up. He also needed finishing and manufacturing machines that would work with the coated paper. This developed into printing the material in house and, after looking in the UK first, to importing several machines to enable manufacture of both sugar sachets and sugar sticks. Different fill weights and also sweeteners are done to special order, making Sachets Direct of particular interest for Corporate companies. Many Large branded names have been produced in the small Shropshire area of Hanwood!
On a direct basis, sugar sachets have been produced for many different businesses including hotels, restaurants, golf resorts, sports clubs and country homes, and for many celebration events – particularly weddings and anniversaries – showing pictures of the ‘The Happy Couple’ when they were children, or a special picture as a memento of an occasion.
Prices start from £40.00 for 200 sachets, £79.00 for 1,000 sachets, printed in full colour with a picture and words of your choice.
